A NEW SELENE PASSAGE MAKER!
Designed for an experienced American owner and captain, the new Selene 70 bi-hull’s goal is to give her owner access to the very shallow waters of the Caribbean and the Bahamas. With a reduced beam and draft, and long-range capacity, this new passage maker has no limits and can enter any tight marina or shallow lagoon!
Low Draft and High Speed
Starting from a blank page, we eventually opted for Hamilton jet drives in order to save a few hull depth centimetres. A light, but bulletproof, construction will also reduce the wet surface. At the cruise speed of 24 knots, all stability tests are satisfactory and this boat is ready to sail the Pacific and Asian waters in style!
The interior will be classic and bright with a wide living space and galley connected to the cockpit, along with the pilothouse being a captain’s dream with a large dashboard, capable of hosting a full array of electronic displays and instruments.
ICONIC SELENE LINES
The owner will also enjoy a superb three-stateroom layout with optional crew quarters (alternate layout), and, obviously, all staterooms have ensuite heads, as well as the master stateroom in the starboard hull is complete with a vanity, full-length closets, and a writing desk in the den or ship’s office. Finally, the engine compartments with full height, two large utility rooms will host the laundry and cold storage to starboard, including the electrical room with the water makers to port.
A large flying bridge with an open-plan galley, loungers and three helm seats will be a perfect place to entertain guests at anchor or while underway to the destination. The space can accommodate a large tender as well as comfortable seating for eight, and can easily be accessed from the outdoor stairway in the cockpit or from another inside the pilothouse.
With her iconic blue water style and lines, Selene Yachts banks on innovation as much as on tradition… A 45’ version of this bi-hull model is already on Howard’s drawing table. To the Selene motto « Grace and Strength » Howard Chen has added the magic of « Speed »…
