The Selene People


There are close to 500 Selene people and they are responsible for design, interior decoration, upholstery, carpentry, fiberglass tooling, painting, stainless-steel fabrication, procurement, electrical, hydraulic and mechanical systems, electronics from a simple chart-plotter to a super-yacht glass-bridge… With several designers, engineers, naval architects and production line-managers, the Selene people can graciously and enthusiastically take up the challenges of any yacht from 36 to 108 feet, and more. The Selene people can take it from the drawing board to the launching pad. Like Howard Chen, the founder of Jet Tern Marine, the Selene people are an “Inspired Team of Dream Builders”.


Howard Chen has a Bachelors degree of Naval Architecture in Taiwan. Manager of several shipyards in Taiwan for twelve years, he established in 1998 his own firm Jet-Tern Marine in Dongguan. Since then Howard’s creativity has had no limits with trawlers, exploration vessels, power catamarans and super-yachts…
