2019 Selene 42 Voyager
This yacht is the private boat of a top Selene Yachts executive. Launched in 2019, she has been very lightly used. This yacht was always professionally maintained and in outstanding condition. She was skippered in Asian waters by her owner, an experienced captain and marine architect, who has logged 40,000 nautical miles on his three previous yachts.
The Selene 42 Voyager raises the bar even higher with an inimitable Herreshoff interior and the best equipment, including a Seakeeper 5 stabilizer and an auxiliary hydraulic get-home engine! She has a very small engine (200 H) and generator hours (400 H).
What could be more important than the interior of a yacht to enjoy comfortable navigation? The layout of the staterooms as well as the design of the interior of this yacht is built to sail for days and weeks in style. With beautiful woodwork inspired by famous naval architect Herreshoff, the yacht sports details and high-end equipment inherited from a tradition of classic and vintage boats: mahogany joinery, Italian designer’s faucets, custom period light fixtures, Chesterfield upholstery, etc. This unique Selene 42 Voyager has been designed to appeal to the most demanding owner and captain!
Selene 42 Voyager’s Exquisite Joinery
Only a fine carpenter or experienced shipwright could begin to fully appreciate the quality of materials and workmanship invested in the interior fit and finish. A couple of the yacht’s salient features only can be listed here.
- This yacht has clever improvements reflecting the owner’s experience and the art of living at sea.
- All the factory options have been installed (air conditioning, gyro stabilization, watermaker, washer, get-home engine), but several smart additions like a flags rack or a charts holder have also added safety, elegance and comfort. It is an exceptionally well-equipped yacht tailored for long voyages as much as for coastal cruising for a
couple or a family.
- This unique Selene 42 Voyager Sedan is the epitome of the Selene brand’s philosophy: a luxury owner-operated yacht with a manageable size and a perfectly livable interior…
- Due to Covid and the sailing restrictions, the yacht has been very lightly used, a few days only, including the maiden voyage! In other words, this yacht is new! A replacement Selene with the same features would be ways more expensive than the price asked here! And no waiting time! The owner has several ocean passages in his logbook; he has selected all systems…
- The yacht is a luxury cruiser with long-range capabilities (1,000NM at cruise speed and up to 1,700 NM at eco speed.)
- It has a 14 Kw generator, a 90-L/h water maker, a washer & dryer, air conditioning and a get-home hydraulic motor. Bow and stern thrusters make docking easier. It is stabilized by a gyro Sea Keeper, eliminating over 85% of the roll underway or at rest. The boat is also equipped with a Rolly Tasker stabilization sail and an electrical swinging davit lifting a 12’ tender and its 15 HP Yamaha (launching and retrieving the dinghy takes 3 minutes). The dinghy can also be stowed on chocks on the upper deck with the crane.
- The boat welcomes all aboard from a starboard side gate or her extended swim platform through a transom door. The cockpit and side decks are covered with teak, and the topside railing with Epifane varnished tek (12 coats!) and stainless-steel trimming (a detail that reflects the quality of Selene’s workmanship!). There is a large lazarette beneath the cockpit. It takes advantage of the Selene cruiser stern, which extends the hull under to improve performance and handling.
- In the cockpit, which is fully protected by the upper deck, there is room for two elegant rattan armchairs. The design enables a cockpit comparable in size to the Selene 55! A curved staircase provides storage and safe access to the upper deck. The boat has built-in automatic fender clamps on the topsides; no need for your guests to know how to tie a knot!
- From the cockpit, a Dutch door opens into the salon with a U-shaped settee to starboard and a hidden leaf table for six. To port are a built-in desk and a couch that converts into a sliding berth. The upholstery is made of burgundy leather.
- Special attention was given to the interior decoration and styling with satin mahogany timber wooden white batten ceiling (black over the helm to avoid reflection of the instruments during night navigations, one detail that only experienced captains are familiar with…) One finds solid teak and holly soles throughout the vessel. Vintage lights ordered in England in a foundry are ample throughout the boat. Italian designer faucets are installed in the head.
- The galley is to port with everything a cruiser needs, a microwave oven, an electric hob and oven, a large stainless steel refrigerator and a freezer. A vintage manual faucet also allows for fresh water should the water pump be faulty (another detail that only sailors are familiar with!) The lower helm is to starboard with a double settee and all controls.
- The boat has Garmin electronics with an Iridium satellite phone docked on the bulkhead. Essential instrumentation is replicated on the upper helm. USB and 12CDC outlets are available at the helm, and a red light at the charts table to port.
- The helm section is equipped with dual white and red ceiling lights (another detail that reflects the quality of the design!)
- The master cabin forward has private access to the head and a V-berth which converts to a queen size bed. A 30’’ TV is mounted on the bulkhead. The guest stateroom features two berths (with a filler), storage, bookshelves, USB ports, a storage net on the bulkhead and natural ventilation through a porthole and a cowl vent on the deck (another detail that reflects the quality of the design of a boat that can sail in tropical waters).
- The flying bridge, accessed from the cockpit, has one helm seat with a Sunbrella U-shaped settee to port with a beautiful teak table and storage beneath for lines and scuba gear. To starboard is a freshwater sink, storage, a refrigerator and an electric grill. The large deck area aft has room for a 10/12ft dinghy and a large round lounger.A folding Sunbrella bimini protects the deck.
- The Rolly Tasker mast is equipped with folding steps (another detail that reflects Selene’s experience when it comes to looking for a safe anchorage in shallow waters!) The engine room has good access to all equipment and systems and enhanced soundproofing in the forward bulkhead. The boat has an oil-change system, a fuel polish unit, sight gauges on the fuel tanks and a camera in the engine room.
- The boat has an automatic fire suppression system in the engine room, four extinguishers, a 6-pax life raft in its automatic canister, launching buoys, and a fixed fog horn.
- Many improvements are not visible at first sight, but they offer more reliability, safety and comfort, like the rudder shoe, which has been reinforced with a strong stainless-steel socket bolted and glassed, the secondary engine and generator control panels in the engine room, the engine Murphy gauge at the helm, the rope-cutter on the shaft, the dedicated communications backup battery under the helm seat, the dripless packing gland and more.
