Selene’s preferred marina in Southeast Asia
With four new Selene yachts recently built or under construction for owners residing in Southeast Asia, Selene is becoming a trendy explorer’s brand in Thailand, Singapore, Malaysia, and the Philippines!
The brand new Port Takola marina in Thailand has been picked by several Selene owners to be the best port of call in the Thai kingdom, and a perfect gateway to visiting neighbouring Burma, and paradise-like locations such as the Andaman islands, the Similan archipelago, the Malacca Straits, and the Malaysian coastline. After having visited the premises, we at Selene have also voted Port Takola as “Selene’s Preferred Marina in Southeast Asia.”
