There are many steps between first sighting a yacht at a boat show or reading about it in a periodical and the first sight of your vessel at the dock with all systems perfected, tanks and larder full, and the traditional bottle to break on the bow. Selene Annapolis is dedicated to walking those steps with every owner. We provide support and service programs at every point along Our Process , at commissioning, and after the delivery which is critical to meeting the high expectations every owner has.
Commissioning and warranty services are provided in partnership with Bennett Brothers Yachts in Wilmington, NC and Washburn's Boat Yard in Solomons Island, MD. Rather than incur the price-pushing overheads of its own facility, Selene Annapolis partners with two of the most widely respected yards on the East Coast. Each has extensive experience with Selenes, brings invaluable expertise in commissioning, routine service, post-commissioning upgrades, and repairs.
We welcome you into the Selene family by structuring the purchase process so that you are comfortable and confident in the design and features of your new trawler. We will work together to match your dreams and needs to the Selene that best fits your cruising goals.
Our Process focuses on how you plan to use your boat, its plans and specifications, and is designed to keep you actively involved and informed throughout construction. You will be connected to your new yacht at all stages. We also engage you in commissioning, sea trials, and a thorough orientation to the boat to ensure you know your new boat intimately. We are confident that our process will make you a welcomed and enthusiastic member of the growing Selene community.
Selene Annapolis Yachts was started by Chuck and Andrea Wistar in 2005 after they lived aboard and cruised their own Selene 53, Celebrate for two-and-a-half years. Their 14,000 miles of cruising stretched from the Canadian Maritimes to the Out Islands of the Bahamas, and everywhere in between. They are proud of their company’s commitment to excellence and service.
Ian Morris brings 30 years of boating and related experience to the company and will work with you through the construction and commissioning process of your new Selene.
Selene Annapolis Yachts' office is located on the harbor in the Eastport neighborhood of Annapolis. Just across Spa Creek from the downtown. We have a great view of the Annapolis waterfront from the historic Trumpy Boat Yard which has morphed into a complex of marine service enterprises, office space, and even the Chart House Restaurant. Nearly 30 dealers, brokers, and professional service companies call 222 Severn Avenue home. The shore is fully built out with slips in every direction. We are in Building #7, Suite 6.
