Kadey-Krogen Yachts appointed Bob Peterson as sales executive, along with wife Jeni Peterson, based out of the company's corporate office in Stuart, Florida.

Bob Peterson began cruising in the Pacific Northwest from his home state of Oregon to Canada and the Inside Passage. After moving to California, Bob and Jeni took their two young children on a year's trip to Mexico on a motoryacht.

In 1974 the couple built a 94' brigantine and with ten teenagers aboard sailed from San Diego to Acapulco, Mexico, across the Pacific to the Marquesas and Society islands and back to San Diego, where they continued their yacht brokerage business. In 1978 the Peterson family and crew passaged aboard their U.S. Army-built 148' cargo vessel around the coasts of Mexico and Central America to the Caribbean through the Panama Canal.

By 1996 Bob and Jeni headed up the Micronesian Maritime and Fisheries Academy. They taught 40 students two full semesters a year. Curricula included diesel engine maintenance and repair, boat handling, navigation, welding, electrical, fishing and more.

Kadey-Krogen Yachts currently builds full displacement trawler yachts in lengths of 39', 44', 48', 52', 55', 58', 64' and 77'. The company is headquartered in Stuart, Florida, and has sales offices in Annapolis and Seattle.
