Southern China Shipbuilding Alliance
In 2017, the largest fibreglass shipyard in China, Jet Tern Marine, designer and builder of the Selene Yachts, and Kingship Marine, the largest aluminium custom yachts builder in Southern China have formed a strategic consortium : SCSA, the « Southern China Shipbuilding Alliance », to enhance their mutual building capacity.
Kingship Marine will be in charge of building the aluminium hulls, decks and superstructures while, Jet Tern Marine will be in charge of the interior works, joinery, varnishing, decoration, electrical, mechanical systems and electronics commissioning. Several Jet Tern Marine vessels like the yachts of the Selene 128 to 168 Ocean Explorer line are designed for fibreglass or aluminium construction depending on the requirements of the owner.
