When we say all Selene yachts are ocean ready, we mean it! Our last Selene 49 Classic Explorer is certified in the EC as a Category A yacht. A Class A yacht is a vessel that is built to navigate the open ocean and surpass a force 8 on the Beaufort scale (wind speed from 34 to 40 knots…) and surpass waves higher than 4 meters. A Category A yacht is constructed to be self-sufficient in hostile seas.
Classification rules are developed to assess the structural strength and integrity of the essential parts of the hull, the reliability and function of the propulsion, steering systems, power generation and all the other features installed on board which contribute to guaranteeing the main essential services of the yacht.
Also for a class A, the portholes will be more resistant against a sustained wave, the drains to evacuate the water more abundant and of good size, the joints of the hull more hermetic, in short everything is in place to prevent water ingress.
All Selene yachts will take their crew and passengers beyond the horizon safely, and in style… As Lewis Francis Herreshoff, the famous boat designer and marine architect said, “the cabin of a yacht is truly a wonderful thing; not only will it shelter you from a tempest, but from the other troubles in life, it is a safe retreat.”
