Selene 62

Selene 62

Selene Ocean Trawlers offers yachts from 36 to 75 feet and recently debuted the Selene 62.

The interior was designed by Ken Freivokh, who specified quality teak, cherry, and fine granites for flooring, cabinetry, countertops, and interior details that are all complemented by colorful fabrics. With Selene’s semicustom trawlers, owners have some choices to make in the design of their boat. There is flexibility in interior layouts and owners can choose from a galley up or down configuration, optional crew quarters, and can choose between single or twin engines.

The 62 on display at the Fort Lauderdale International Boat show had a galley up configuration that allows for a large open saloon with separate dining table. A few steps up to the pilothouse bring you to the control station with electronics, all-around visibility, and comfortable seating options for guests. There is a dedicated stairway from the pilothouse up to the flybridge, which can also be accessed via a curving stairway from the cockpit.

On the bridge is a redundant helm station, two custom Selene helm chairs and a settee around a large flybridge table. The deck extends aft over the cockpit to accommodate a crane, a large dinghy and owners’ toys.

Belowdecks, the layout includes three staterooms, each with an en suite head, a full beam master stateroom with a walkaround king-sized bed, writing desk, vanity and full height wardrobes.

The stateroom areas are well separated from the walk-in engine room by a full beam bulkhead and 3-inch Soundown insulation. Engine room access is through a stairway down from the cockpit or saloon and is adjacent to the crew quarters. Two FRP fuel tanks provide a total fuel capacity of 2,600 gallons, giving a range of approximately 2,000 miles at 8-1/2 knots. The engine room houses a 32 and 20 kW generator, ESI fuel polishing system, two sub-zero freezers, and provisions for diving equipment.

The price is $2 million for a “well-equipped” 62. www.selenetrawlers.com

Pursuit OS 345

Pursuit OS 345

In 2005, Pursuit introduced its 255 Offshore with a hull redesigned for improved integrity and handling. Its new OS 345 Offshore is the latest model built on that hull, which features a reinforced infused FRP one-piece stringer grid and the same solid one-piece fiberglass headliner for integrity under stress. The new OS 345, which replaces the 345 Offshore — one of the company’s most popular boats with more than 300 built — is designed to run at 50 mph. Optimal fuel consumption is at 4,000 rpm or 32 mph, which in testing delivered 28.4 gph, 1.13 mpg and a range of 346 miles. Zero to 30 mph acceleration is 11.5 seconds.

Design features include an aft-tilting fiberglass helm with integrated footrest and stainless-steel handrail; a custom helm sea with armrests and flip-up bolster; a molded cockpit entertainment center with fiberglass sink, folding hot/cold water faucet, Corian cutting board and two aft storage drawers; portside bridge-deck L-shaped lounge with padded backrest and molded-in footrest; white powder-coasted aluminum support frames; hard top with multiple light, rod holders, recessed speakers, PFD pouches and 3-piece drop curtain integrated; and a cockpit freshwater shower.

Appliances include a Kenyon 240-volt cockpit grill, a 110-volt microwave  and a starboard-side 38-quart stainless steel refrigerator/freezer.

Standard equipment includes a Yamaha fuel management system, a 20-amp battery charger for engine starting batteries and a 40-amp charger for electronics and batteries for the Lewmar bow thruster, Panda 8-kW diesel generator with 25-gallon diesel fuel tank, cabin and mid-berth CO detectors, and recessed Lenco electronic trim tabs with indicator.
