Peterson joins KKY

ADVERTISEMENT

Bob Peterson has joined Florida-based builder Kadey-Krogen Yachts as a sales executive in its corporate office in Stuart. His wife, Jeni, has also joined the company.



“What can you say about a husband-and-wife team who’ve done it all — the lifestyle, the cruises, the seamanship, the nitty-gritty detail, a man and woman who have an unsurpassed love of cruising vessels, an incredibly personable team who brings an unmatchable level of honesty, experience and depth of knowledge to the joy of buying your own dreamboat?” said company President John Gear in making the announcement.

Kadey-Krogen builds trawler yachts up to 77 feet.



Peterson began cruising in the Pacific Northwest from Oregon to Canada and the Inside Passage. After moving to California, he and his wife took their two young children on a year’s trip to Mexico on a motoryacht.

In 1974, they built a 94-foot brigantine and with 10 teenagers sailed from San Diego to Acapulco, across the Pacific to the Marquesas and Society islands, and back to San Diego. In 1978, they passaged aboard their U.S. Army-built 148-foot 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 where they taught 40 students a year everything from diesel engine maintenance and repair to navigation and fishing.
