The Selene 45 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 –she is a serious passagemaker, and a superlative coastwise and inland cruiser.
Unlike her predecessor, the galley on the Selene 45 is offset to starboard providing a more spacious and accommodating salon. The pilothouse settee is L-shaped and also offset to starboard. There is room for a small helm chair in the pilothouse as a result.
The Selene 45 is an evolved version of the very popular Selene 43 model. It features the new “deep hull” design with its Cruiser Stern™, nearly a foot increase in engine room headroom to 66″, and the proven, standard Cummins QSB 5.9 230 h.p. engine. This extra height allows for expansion of the fuel tanks – a total of 200 more gallons! Yet, the tanks are a bit narrower yielding even more space in the engine room. All this is done without increasing the draft. LOA is half a foot longer than the first generation Selene 43. On the interior, that translates to an 6″ increase in the salon.
