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.

Seaworthy vessels to meet the unique needs of every owner, from coastwise cruiser to offshore passagemaker


The Selene 38 is designed with the cruising family in mind, this coastal cruiser provides all the same quality and safety of her larger sisters at an affordable price. The Selene 36 comes equipped with a 220 HP Cummins diesel, bow thruster, anchor windlass, full galley, island master berth, separate shower, full guest stateroom with head, and much more.

The new Selene 42 is the larger sister of the Selene 36, offering the same quality family cruiser with a bit more space. This great cruiser comes equipped with a 220 HP Cummins diesel, bow thruster, anchor windlass, full galley, island master berth, separate shower, full guest stateroom with head, and much more.


The Selene 44 is an entirely new Next Generation Selene. She is the smallest model of the popular and proven Selene Pilothouse Trawler line. Announced in mid-2009, first shipments will be in early 2010. Designed and built like her sisters - a serious passagemaker, and a superlative coastwise and inland cruiser.


 The Next Generation Selene 47 is a larger sister to the ground-breaking Selene 44. The Selene 47 enjoys the many benefits of the Next Generation design including a larger saloon, higher engine room, commissary, deck and lazarette. The Cruiser Stern's extended waterline also gives the yacht 9+ knot cruise with excellent fuel economy.

Her galley is offset to starboard, as is the settee in the pilothouse. Both shifts create a much roomier feel in the salon and pilothouse respectively. A small helm chair can be installed at the lower helm.


The Selene 49 is a serious passagemaker, and a superlative coastwise and inland cruiser. With multiple layout options including either amidships or forward master stateroom, and galley port starboard, or centered, her accommodations can align with her owners’ cruising and liveaboard lifestyle. The 48 offers a radar arch as an alternative to the mast and boom.


Since it's introduction in 2002, the Selene 53 has become the most popular model in the Selene range. Over 120 so far! It's easy to see why, with a powerful combination of liveaboard comfort and excellent long range cruising in safety for a couple and their guests. The Selene 53 is a serious long range cruiser yet it can still be handled easily and safely by a couple.


The Selene 56 is Jet Tern’s Next Generation evolution to the popular Selene 55. The all-new mold features significant increases in length and volume. Built on the proven hull concepts of other of her Next Generation sisterships, the hull offers increased efficiency, the Cruiser Stern™, propeller pocket, protective skegs for the optional twin-engine design, and 6’ standing headroom in the engine room.

 The Selene 58 is Jet-Tern Marine's latest evolution. Howard Chen and his talented team wanted to do more than simply build an extended version of the 53' ... He designed a completely new hull and structure, enlarged the displacement and interior volume in a luxury three stateroom layout, whilst retaining the essential "Selene" characteristics in a significantly bigger boat.

The Selene 60 is the original next-generation Selene. In response to customer demand, Howard Chen designed a new hull form featuring significant improvements in efficiency and space. Tank tests document this hull with its Cruiser Stern™ is 7%-8% more efficient than comparable hulls without that feature. Engine headroom is a full 6’4”.


The Selene 62 is the flagship of the Selene Ocean Trawler family. Its luxurious layout consists of a superb three staterooms with crew quarters aft, all with ensuite heads. The owners enjoy a full width master stateroom complete with writing desk, vanity and full height wardrobes. The pilothouse provides very good visibility, and a functional galley can be up or down with a dinette for six. The spacious F/B accommodates a "U" shaped settee, table boat deck that will allow up to a 14' dinghy.
