SLEEK LINES and LUXURY in abundance.
For several years Howard Chen has worked with Guido de Groot, the famous Dutch designer to create new yachts, which have all the qualities of a Selene classic ocean yacht but with softer lines and a different interior decoration that attract European owners. James Fwu of JFNA, a renown naval architect of Taiwan joined this international team for the hull lines, hydrostatics data, structural design, stability calculations, dynamics performance and final “EU Type Examination Certificate” with RINA.
With an LOA of 75’-9”, a displacement of 158,688 Lbs ( 72 Tons ) and equipped with two Cummins QSL9 405 BHP engines (a single-engine version is also available), the Selene 72 carries more than 3,000 USG ( 11 355 Liters ) of fuel for long-range voyages at a cruising speed of 9 knots, with a top speed of 11.5 knots.
What is catching eyes is the elegant combination of modern styling and the line of a reassuring ocean-going vessel. It shows a number of the Selene family traits with her powerful raised pilothouse, Portuguese bridge, wide upper deck, and side-deck walk-arounds which provide safety and convenience for passengers of all ages ( wide-body or semi-wide-body is optional.) But a new approach is also visible in the addition of the large side windows in the hull and the curvy and sleek lines of the flying bridge.
