The Selene 58 Next Generation hull has three main advantages over its predecessor the Selene 57. The first and foremost change of the Next Generation is the Deep Hull. The engine is now lower giving better stability and a lower shaft angle, which results in better efficiency. The fuel tanks have increased in size to as much as 1,400 gallons (5299 l) for a longer range. The secondary advantages of the deep hull are more space in the engine room, commissary (a storage space under the salon floor) and the lazarette. The increased space allows for full stand-up access in the engine room for easier maintenance as well as more storage. The second change in our next generation hull is a propeller pocket. The pocket allows for an even better engine shaft angle and also allows for a larger propeller increasing the efficiency of the vessel.
The last major change to our Next Generation hull is the Cruisers Stern. This actually adds to the length of the water line, which increases the hull speed and attitude of the vessel. The lazarette, already made larger from the deep hull, is also lengthened inside giving even more space for gear and systems installations. Building on established yacht quality, craftsmanship and seaworthy designs, Selene Yachts is continuing to push their boats in terms of efficiency and seaworthiness.
