About Selene 54
The Selene 54 is a very comfortable trawler yacht, which has been developed based on many attributes that made her predecessor, the Selene 53, so popular. For example the large salon/cockpit and boat deck are very spacious. The Selene 54 keeps these attributes and the robust hull makes this yacht even more stable and efficient for offshore passages. Jet-Tern Marine has built a brand new set of molds for this model, including the hull, deck and superstructure, which ensures a beautiful finished yacht.
The Selene 54’s new hull gives three main advantages. The first is the Deep Hull that gives much more space in the engine room, commissary, and the lazarette. The increased space allows for full stand-up access in the engine room for easier maintenance as well as more storage. The second advantage is that the engine is low, giving better stability and a lower shaft angle. The lowered shaft angle, including the new propeller pocket, results in better efficiency. The fuel tanks have a capacity of 1500 gallons for longer range cruising. The last and third major advantage of the hull of the Selene 54 is the cruiser stern. This actually adds to the length of the water line, which increases the hull speed and attitude of the vessel.The popularity of the Selene 54 and her predecessor is proven by the fact that more than 100 Selene 53/54 Trawlers have been built. She won the “Peoples Choice Award” at the 2007 Trawlerfest. Building on the established yacht quality, craftsmanship and seaworthy designs, the Selene 54 seems to have already surpassed its predecessor.
