The Summit 54’ achieves smart, chic and comfortable with her inviting aft deck,
her freeing flybridge, and her relaxing foredeck and sun lounge.

Aft Deck Highlights

Appointed with genuine teak decking, a handcrafted teak table and designer-quality soft goods (upholstery chosen from our SUMMIT MotorYachts standard selections), the aft deck beams with pride and is a seamless extension of the interior, both in style and access.

Just down from the aft deck is a perfect-height swim platform for lounging or taking a dip. Also accessed from the aft deck, comfortable steps lead to the flybridge; another perfect place to relax.

Hear the music playing? Fusion® Entertainment Marine Audio Solutions sends ambiance and harmony to the aft deck, salon/galley lounge, bow and flybridge. Also working in harmony with the interior, is the aft deck grilling station and the sea-to-table service window that provides continuous access and contact.

Foredeck and Sun Lounge

When at-anchor, the foredeck of the Summit 54’ is as much a social space as a spot for a peaceful siesta or nightly stargazing. Soak in the sights and the sun, or shelter in the shade, on the foredeck’s comfortable bow seating and reclining sun pad lounge that is equipped with cupholders and an optional canopy. Furthermore, the side decks are fully walkable—no sideways shuffling.

And, thanks to the thoughtful design of the forward deck with portlights and a hatch, the lower interior accommodations enjoy lots of light and the abundant fresh breezes circulating throughout the cabins.


Experience all-day enjoyment (coffee to cocktails) up on the flybridge. There are fresh breezes, 360-degree vistas, a forward sun lounge, and a settee with seats for everyone. Grab a cold beverage from the adjacent refrigerator, gather around the handcrafted teak table and don’t miss out on the conversation or sunset.

Underway, the flybridge is as functional as it is social. The helm is slightly offset to starboard with ample room for twin helm chairs. Guests can sit next to, or in front of you, while you take them on an afternoon sightseeing tour—or to your favorite destination for an overnight experience.

Upon arrival, one person easily launches the tender using the hydraulic crane. Your adventure then continues!

Designed to be classic and transcend all that is trendy. Enjoy your coveted retreat
with modern conveniences and elegant interior spaces.

Galley Lounge

The warm walnut wood tones and soothing horizontal lines of the grain. The cascading waterfall countertops. The enormous, wrap-around windows. All intentional. All subtle design choices that reflect the horizon and calm us.

To further optimize weekend escapes, we’ve designed the galley to suit any mood or moment. For example, a breakfast nook and settee to starboard with a handcrafted, collapsing teak table, is just the right spot to lounge while your tea steeps.

The timeless, clean look created with beautiful Silestone® countertops are complimented by the modern galley appliances, stainless steel finish, that will never feel like a compromise. Included are a refrigerator/freezer with double drawers, a convection microwave oven, a cooktop, icemaker and dishwasher.

Helm Deck

Stepping up, the helm deck continues the theme of 360-degree views providing exceptional sightlines from the dual helm seat and electronics console, as well as an expansive dining experience around the handcrafted high/low table.

The Summit 54’ interior dining area is elevated to provide some space and separation from the galley, but at the same time, remain connected to all that is happening onboard. Outside of mealtime and entertaining, with a quick coffee table transformation, and still the comfort of the wrap-around seating, the area becomes a casual and comfortable TV-watching area.

The helm is made of fine walnut with a raised wedge resulting in plenty of room for your signature suite of electronics. The wheel is a stunning suede and stainless-steel masterpiece. This area also offers a door to starboard.

Intuitive marine technology and ease of operation are only exceeded by the details of comfort
and elegance that are incorporated at every turn below decks.
Master Suite

More than a master stateroom. Enter your master suite. Located at the widest part of the boat, the suite is nearly 15 feet wide. And, for a more comfortable night’s sleep, there is a walk-around queen berth. With his-and-hers wardrobe closets, plenty of drawer storage, and an ensuite head with cabinetry, there’s no need to live out of a suitcase.

We’ve designed each stateroom with what’s desired, not just decorative. The master suite also has a TV, a vanity/desk, and beautiful LED overhead lighting and wall lighting.

All accommodations are coordinated with pillows, sheets and spreads for all beds, from the choice of the SUMMIT MotorYachts design packages.

VIP Stateroom with Ensuite Guest Head Access

Much like the master, the VIP stateroom will have family and guests living lavishly. Living up to the VIP moniker, this space has the comforts of a walk-around queen berth, hanging locker and extra storage, overhead lighting, reading lights, TV, and ensuite access to the beautiful guest head with a stall glass shower. Everyone will be waiting for their next invitation to get away.

All accommodations are coordinated with pillows, sheets and spreads for all beds, from the choice of the SUMMIT MotorYachts design packages.

Guest Stateroom / Office

With a full berth, more hanging storage, and a desk with a mirror and lighting fixtures, the third cabin is really a room packed with purpose. It’s also the home of the washer and dryer (not a combo unit). Alternatively, there is the option to forego the berth and dedicate the stateroom to be an office.

Welcome to your floating home.

SUMMIT MotorYachts’ flagship planing hull design, the Summit 54’, is the celebrated result of two legendary design teams. With a new product line in mind, the seaworthy, long-range trawler experts at Kadey-Krogen Yachts, turned to the marine industry’s go-to performance authority and luxury designer, Michael Peters, to bring something altogether new to the motoryacht market. Together, her beautiful exterior lines were drawn; her hull, with an impressive 330 nautical mile range at 23 knots, was developed; and her seakeeping and performance standards were set.

The elevated interior—the custom-like finishes and classic yacht styling—was crafted by Espinosa Yacht Design and interior designer Katie Astras. Bringing in the best for each department has produced a brand and model that is distinguished and sure to become another prized American yacht on the waters of the world.

SUMMIT MotorYachts, is a brand that lives under parent company Kadey-Krogen Yachts, and production of the Summit 54’ is happening at Asia Harbor Yacht Builders in Kaohsiung, Taiwan, where all Kadey-Krogens are built. A long-standing, 25-year partnership with the privately-owned yard has produced a team of master craftsmen dedicated to building the finest yachts.

Kadey-Krogen Yachts is recognized by its 40-plus-year history of design innovation and is applauded for building more than 620 semi-custom, Pure Full Displacement™ trawler yachts. That time-honored tradition continues. For more information about Kadey-Krogen Yachts, visit
