Two JTM�s Boats Debut Sea Trial

On Dec. 3, 2009, JTM proudly sea trialed two boats—Selene-5831 and the new Artemis 4603. This sea trial marks the debut of the Artemis 46 and the new Selene 58 DH (Deep Hull). Howard Chen and JTM's engineer and staff joined the customers for a three-day sea trail. In addition, the owners of Selene-5831, Brad Pilz, the GM of Selene Seattle, and Tony Witek, the sales manager of Selene Seattle were also on board for the sea trials.

The sea trial was conducted meticulously and successfully; Selene-5831 reached a top speed of 10.6 knots. The customers were pleased with the performance of the boat, her excellent stability, maneuverability, and the minimal noise and vibration. The new deep hull (DH) design takes advantage of the larger engine room by incorporating more head room, expanded fuel capacity, greater displacement, and a more stable ride under way. The overall performance, fuel burn, and minimal wake of the new Selene 58 DH achieved and exceeded the expectations of Howard Chen and his team. In addition, the customers were very satisfied with the results of the sea trial and expressed their enthusiasm for Jet Tern and their new Selene during an interview with local media.

The new Artemis 4603 performed her first sea trial alongside Selene-5831 and achieved great results. The Artemis reached a top speed of 23 knots under the power of twin Yanmar 380hp engines. With adjustments in the overall weight of the boat, Jet Tern believes the boat can reach 24 knots. The response from the rudder is excellent, and the power steering, electric throttle, and clutch make the boat very easy to maneuver and operate. The layout of the boat easily accommodated those on board for the sea trial and the spacious flybridge provided an ideal space for outdoor operation. Inside, the Artemis is a contemporary design much different than the classic Selene design.

This two-boat sea trial was an ideal opportunity to see two very different types of boats—a long range trawler and a performance motoryacht—cruising side by side, each a result of Jet Tern Marine's design and construction teams. As the global economy bounces back, Jet Tern has received new orders for Selene long range trawlers and has developed the new Artemis for a global client base including a new boating market in China.

This is really amazing too see two different category boats, long range trawler and the fast fashion boat, all built by JTM, cursing together. While the global economic is getting up, JTM’s long range trawler has receiving some new order, JTM also develop the new design for the new market like China!!
