Successful sea trial in the North China Sea
A few days ago, our most recent Selene 88 Fishing was launched. Beside the fact the yacht looks beautiful on the water and sits perfectly in its lines, the sea trial was very conclusive! At 2,130 RPM the twin engines Cummins QSM 455HP and their ZF 360 2,917:1 gear box, pushed the boat at 12.75 knots in the Pearl River and the North China Sea. And at 1,500 RPM and 34% engine load the average speed was 10.35. knots, which is perfectly adequate for long ocean passages. Final commissioning and touch-up of this vessel will now take place at our docks before delivery to her happy customer. The gyro stabilizer did the job as expected, the fuel burn and the noise level in the cabin were within range. Howard Chen and his team were doing their job in a beautiful sunset in Zhuhai Selene Shipyard. Another Selene Explorer is ready to roam the Seven Seas. . .
