Under construction, the new Selene 78 Ocean Explorer

Selene 7802 - exterior 02

Ordered by a client from North America, construction is under way on
a new Selene 78 Ocean Explorer designed by Guido de Groot. With its
impressive range and stylish interior, the yacht is ideal for longdistance
(ocean) trips in complete luxury and comfort. The lines of
the trawler are based on the larger Selene 92 Ocean Explorer,
currently under construction at Jet-Tern Marine in China. Following
the Selene Trawler 66 and Selene 92 Ocean Explorer, the construction
and sale of the Selene 78 mark the launch of a striking series of
Ocean Explorer yachts.

Selene 78 - MC1

The first Selene 78 Ocean Explorer will have a length of nearly 24 metres and
a beam of 6.5 metres. The design offers a larger volume than most yachts in
its size range thanks to a round-bilged hull shape combined with a deep hull
and cruiser stern. These unique characteristics result in a superior sea-going
performance and relatively low fuel consumption.
Partly due to its sizeable volume, the yacht offers copious living and sleeping
space on board. Each of the sleeping accommodations is spacious, as are the
saloon, galley and wheelhouse. The comfort levels on the flybridge and sun
deck are unprecedented for this size of yacht, enhanced by a luxury seating
area on the foredeck and large dining space on the aft deck.
All owners of a Selene Ocean Explorer yacht enjoy a wealth of freedom
regarding the layout and styling of their interior. The owners of both the
Selene 92 Ocean Explorer and the Selene 78 Ocean Explorer visited the
offices of Guido de Groot in Leiden to discuss the interior design in detail.
Based on their wishes, Guido de Groot developed a custom-made interior for
each yacht.
