The new Next Generation Selene-54 has evolved naturally from the highly acclaimed and successful Selene 53 which, since its introduction in 2002, has risen to be the most popular model in the Selene range. It’s easy to see why, with a powerful combination of liveaboard comfort and excellent long range cruising in safety for a couple and their guests.
With no less than eight different living areas to choose from, including three staterooms (two with ensuite bathrooms) a galley that’s integral with the saloon, and a spacious flybridge that’ll be the envy of everyone on the dock, the Selene-54 is a comfortable home afloat. Yet it can still be handled easily and safely by a couple, thanks to the secure walk around decks and Portuguese bridge, two steering stations, and bow and (optional) stern thruster.
But, like all Selene Ocean Trawlers, at its heart, the Selene-54 is a serious long range cruiser. Explains Howard Chen, the designer and builder, “The hull form of the Selene-54 has a hard chine in the aft sections to reduce roll, but this merges into the traditional displacement boat’s round bilges by the mid sections, giving the Selene-54 it’s impressive range of 2,000+nm and an economical cruise speed of 10kts. Importantly, the new Selene-54 is out of a brand new mold and features the deep hull and cruiser stern innovations. This means the headroom approaches 6’ at the front, and the hull form has been measures at 7-8% more efficient which translates into significant fuel savings.”
After being on board a Selene 54, customers often wonder how we’ve managed to pack so much into a 54′ boat. Well, for starters, it’s actually 59’10″ overall, and with a beam of 16′ 8″.
