Welcome to Selene Yachts, the world-renowned builder of luxury trawler motor yachts. With over 400 yachts built since 1998, we never compromise on safety, grace, efficiency, strength and comfort.

Introducing, the Selene 78 Trawler Motor Yacht….

Choosing a boat, from the drawing board to the ocean, is one of the major decisions in a captain and owner’s lifetime… Thus, since 1999, Selene Yachts has been exceeding the expectations of current and future owner’s. We call ourselves « Qualified and Certified Dream Builders ». We blend « Grace and Strength ». We fulfill our client’s dreams of sailing on a safe and beautiful yacht, at a reasonable cost.

After having built 400 boats over twenty years in our proprietary factories, we are experts at that very unique exercise. We design boats and build dreamboats in our in-house factory from the first drum of resin and roll of cloth to the upholstery of the salon!

Family-Friendly Interior

Our yachts feature creative, livable layouts for the owner, his wife, family and friends. High quality joinery, varnish and upholstery are our hallmarks. Our shipwrights have decades of experience in boat building and we have zero tolerance for those squeaking floors or poorly adjusted locker doors and drawers that you would find on many production boats after some months of sailing. Our doors for instance have a rubber seal inserted in the frame to damper vibrations, and our hinges and locks are first class hardware. Twenty years after her launching, the interior of a Selene Yacht will look as good as new; this is why our boats retain such a high value on the preloved yachts market…


Main Deck

Lower Deck

Bullet-proof construction

All the Selene hulls are built to the highest standards. On deck and under deck, whether it’s a hawsehole or a Samson post, a foredeck railing or engine bed caps, most of the stainless-steel equipment installed on our yachts is fabricated in our workshops. This means, once again, perfect adjustment and integration of the various components and zero compromise with ergonomics, aesthetics and safety.

Safety and Comfort

Soundproofing, which is essential for a comfortable and safe passage has always been on our priority list and is constantly improved. Our yachts are also best in their class with several layers of insulation between the engine room and the living quarters.

Introducing, the Selene 78 Trawler Motor Yacht….

If you're looking for the ultimate in a cruising home, it is the new Selene 78.  She is a luxurious and commodious vessel. The elegant saloon can seat eight comfortably for dinner. It has a convenient day head. Just a few steps away, past the galley, is a very spacious pilothouse which doubles as the command center for the yacht with a spectacular entertainment area. Below decks there are four full double staterooms all with ensuite bathrooms. The owners enjoy a full width master stateroom, complete with writing desk and vanity, full height wardrobes and an ensuite bathroom replete with tub and his and hers wash basins.

But despite the luxurious accommodations and beautiful external lines of this yacht, like all Selenes, underneath she is a rugged passage maker. A waterline length of 70'-11", and S/L ratio of 1.44, coupled to 5000 gal. capacity integral FRP fuel tanks and a bulbous bow (optional) provides the ultimate in range and comfort at sea. And, as you would expect with a yacht of this pedigree, she has full height walk-in engine room, a workshop/utility room and separate crews quarters, including shower/head.
