Classic Explorer 60

The circumnavigator

The Selene 60 is a completely new design from an entirely new mould. The Selene Deep Hull™ structure results in a raised sheer and a significantly higher deck, which generates increased headroom in the cabins and the engine room. The Selene 60 is a perfect transitional yacht between the successful Selene 53/54 and Selene 62/66 series. She features a full-height engine room, a separate crew’s quarters aft, and a transom door.

An expansive and functional flybridge layout incorporates a 10-person U-shaped sofa with a built-in BBQ, sink, and refrigerator. One of the unique selling points of the Selene 60 is its full-height commissary, or utility room, placed between the owner’s cabin and the engine room for storage, freezer, washer/dryer, and access to the electrical compartment.

2,500 nm range at 9 knots in luxury

This commissary is an even better isolator of engine room noise into the master cabin! Behind the «walk-through» engine room, you find the lazarette, which is so spacious that you can easily store your tools, spare parts, and diving equipment. This roomy lazarette also offers the possibility of building a crew cabin with a head. The standard settee moulded into the cockpit creates a gracious space for relaxation underway or at the dock.

The European transom with an inset swim platform puts the Selene 60 into the mini mega-yacht class. An optional FRP hardtop enhances this graceful yacht’s functionality and profile. The quality and beauty of the Selene 60 have been confirmed by many owners of Selene Trawlers, who have described this yacht as « the best designed and most accomplished boat from Howard Chen’s drawing board! » Built to Lloyd’s Category A standards, the Selene 60 has the range, strength, and stability to cross oceans, yet with a moderate draft, it is also at home in shallow tropical waters or for gunk-holing rivers and creeks. The first deliveries of the Selene 60s started in the fall of 2006, and since then, over thirty Selene 60s have been delivered…
