Alaska, the last frontier for a Selene 66
M.Y. Jade, a Selene 66 launched in 2005 and his French captain Joël Marc is for some weeks in Ketchikan, Alaska. A couple of years ago, Jade sailed all the way for New Zealand. Jade and its single 610 hp Cummins engine performed flawlessly and the crew crossed the inclement and stormy waters familiar to Alaskan crabbing boats in comfort and style!
The flagship of the Selene Classic line
Owners of the Selene 66, the flagship of the Selene Classic line, enjoy a superb three-stateroom layout with crew quarters aft of the engine room or a large technical compartment, and, obviously all staterooms have ensuite heads. The master stateroom is complete with a vanity, full-length closets, and a writing desk. The flybridge can be accessed from the stairway in the cockpit or from a stairway in the pilothouse. The flybridge can accommodate a large tender as well as comfortable seating for eight. Machinery space was not neglected and systems are easily accessed through a transom door, or side deck door.
A bastion of luxury
The engine room features full standing headroom and all major components are within reach for ease of maintenance. In addition a massive lazarette has room for separate washer and dryer units stored under a workbench. The lazarette also includes a sink and freezer. As a seasoned owner and mariner commented, « the Selene 66 is a bastion of luxury doubling as a no-nonsense efficient and safe passage maker! ».
