The Krogen 39 is the perfect couple's boat, both in form and function. She is blue water capable, will easily navigate the Great Loop and her shallow draft will take you to some great spots in the Bahamas. FREELANCE has been enjoyed by experienced cruisers for the past 12 years. She has been impeccably maintained and carefully appointed by her knowledgeable crew. She has just returned from a trip to the Keys, where will she take you?
