First Selene 92 Ocean Explorer On Order
"The first of the Selene 92 "Ocean Explorer " Series is now under construction and work is well underway on her hull plug and tooling.
The first sale of the series was concluded at the recent Cannes boat show on the French Riviera and she will be delivered in 2012 to the Mediterranean where she is expected to debut at the Monaco Yacht Show.
The new "Ocean Explorer" range has been very well received as the Selene brand consolidates upon its successful "Ocean Trawler"' concept to move into the 24 M + category of displacement yachts .
The 92 is the result of a multinational collaboration of designers and architects under Howard Chen's design team leadership. Howard Chen has worked closely with renowned Dutch architect Guido De Groot and a group of International consultants to develop a contemporary take on the long range yacht whilst capitalizing on builder Jet Tern Marine's high quality construction and reputation for experience and innovation in the displacement yacht sector.
A first look at the 92 shows a number of the Selene family traits with her powerful raised pilothouse, Portuguese bridge, and bulbous bow. But a contemporary twist is also apparent in the addition of the large side windows in the hull and stainless steel anchor pockets.
She takes the simple and proven concept of the fuel efficient and seaworthy long range yacht to a new level of luxury and with all of the advantages of GRP construction.
The first ordering customers are a US based partnership who were impressed with the design's mixture of contemporary styling and sea going capability".
