Selene 49 Completes Atlantic Crossing
Kevin and Laura Katzke completed their trans-oceanic passage in early July, arriving in Brazil after departing the Cape Verde Is. eight days earlier.
They tell a fascinating, exciting, and enjoyable recounting of this adventure in their log, which you can read their log by clicking here.
Full and Semi Displacement Hulls
A Full Displacement hull is the theoretically purest of designs meant to travel efficiently through water by gently displacing the liquid in which it floats. Importantly, the chines of true displacement hulls are rounded the entire length of the vessel. This roundness offers little resistance to forces which is critical to its efficiency. However, forces intent on inducing roll, whether under way or at anchor, can have their way. In following seas, they handle well. Krogen and Nordhavn brands are examples of this design.

A perfect combination of Grace and Strength
A great trawler is a delicate combination of grace and strength. A yacht must appeal to the senses -- It must have graceful lines and a beauty that draws an admiring second look at the dock or at sea. However, in an ocean-going trawler, beauty must not be "only skin deep." The trawler must also be designed, engineered, and built to the highest standards of quality to be capable of taking you, your family, and your guests in safety and comfort anywhere in the world.
