This late model Selene 45, with an LOA of almost 50 feet, is easily single or double handed, with room for guests. A very high level of luxury and finish is blended with robust construction and good engineering. The Selene 45 is rated Lloyds Class A ocean cruiser and is quite rare to market. NCC-1701 is a capable, striking yacht, in turn-key condition, ready to explore.
A slightly improved version from the similar Selene 43, the Selene 45 offers more waterline, more room in the engine space, and larger fuel capacity, extending the range.
Board from the dock to a generous swim platform, then through the transom door to the cockpit.
Enter the salon through the aft door, or enter the pilothouse from the port or starboard side deck doors; all Dutch doors with teak interior panels.
The salon and galley are on one level, separated by a granite bar / work space.
From the salon and galley area, up steps to the pilothouse, or down steps to the accommodations.
Up to the pilothouse is the operational centre of the yacht, with Stidd helm seat, guest settee and table, and quick access to all communication and navigation systems, vessel controls, and systems control and monitoring.
Then up to the flybridge with upper helm station, after deck lounge, summer galley, and boat deck.
Down to the accommodations area with a central foyer leading aft to the engine room, forward and port to the guest stateroom with private head and shower opposite, and all the way forward to the master stateroom, also with private ensuite head and tub / shower.
NCC-1701 is finished throughout in teak, with a soft satin varnish, and with a traditional teak and holly sole.
All cabinet and locker doors throughout the boat are louvered for added ventilation.
All opening port lights, windows and hatches have bug screens.
Down broad steps from the port side of the salon and galley to the accommodations foyer. Engine room is aft, and staterooms and heads forward.
The master stateroom all the way forward features an island Queen berth with steps up port and starboard, and outstanding storage in over a dozen lockers, drawers, shelves and hanging lockers.
The guest stateroom is midships and to port off the foyer and features a twin pullman berth, storage in a hanging locker, and numerous other lockers on the forward bulkhead and under the berth.
As expected from Selene, the salon is an extremely warm and welcoming space with leather-upholstered settees to both port and starboard. To starboard is a straight settee and to port is an L-settee with a teak table, varnished with a nautical inlay. The flatscreen TV hiding spot is behind a sliding panel in the galley bar, and is positioned for good viewing from all salon seating. Also aft in the salon floor is the notable Selene commissary storage locker with additional freezer capacity.
Joinery and finishing throughout is teak with a satin varnish.
The galley is U-shaped for security, and is well laid out with everything needed for any ambitious chef, and with plenty of lighting and ventilation. The raised bar to the salon not only add prepping and service space, but also provides a subtle separation between the salon and galley when entertaining.
The pilothouse is the operational heart of the yacht. Central is a Stidd helm chair, finished in black leather. Aft is the L-shaped settee, again upholstered in leather, with a high gloss adjustable teak table. Port and starboard are Diamond Seaglaze dutch doors leading to the side decks and foredeck, for additional visibility while docking, and to quickly and safely adjust fenders and lines as needed.
One of the Selene 45’s top features is the ability to access the flybridge, upper helm and boat deck from the pilothouse, rather than by an exterior ladder from the cockpit. This arrangement is more secure and convenient, and makes space in the cockpit, and on the flybridge deck, more usable. This is a sought after feature, and is unusual on a vessel this size.
The flybridge has been made into an outstanding lounging and entertaining area with an L-shaped settee, a table with accommodation for umbrella, a summer galley, and removable tender chocks, opening up that deck space as well.
The upper helm has two Todd helm seats with canvas covers, and an array of navigation and communication equipment, and vessel controls.
Just aft of the flybridge enclosure and to starboard of the aft settee, is the boat deck with tender storage, chocks and davit crane with winch.
The current owner stores electric bikes on this deck, and hence the tender is stowed on the swim platform on a Presto lift.
New 2019 Tender:
The tender is a 2019 AB Mares 10 VSX (10' 6") with a 2019 Tohatsu 30 hp EFI long shaft outboard.
The swim platform is part of the hull mold and is clad in two-tone non-skid fibreglass. From there through the transom door to the teak clad cockpit and side decks. The cockpit and side decks are covered for protection from sun and rain. These side deck covers also protect the salon and galley windows from rain, the benefit being that there is no closed-in feeling while aboard during heavy rains. Exterior handrails are 1.25” stainless steel.
Moving forward, the Portuguese bridge is central to the striking lines of this handsome yacht, and is also quite functional, and, along with the high bulwarks and covered side decks, adds safety in heavy seas.
The tender has been relocated to a Presto swim transom lift, which opens up the boat deck for additional gear storage and lounging space.
AC and DC power services the vessel through circuit breaker panels, backlit for convenience, and with appropriate voltage and ampere gauges.
AC power is provided by 50 Amp shore connection, by the generator set, or, for lighter loads, by a 4000 Watt inverter, powered by the house bank of batteries.
There are both fore and aft deck shore power connections, for easy access to a dock supply.
DC power is also distributed through the circuit breaker protected panel. There are banks of batteries for the house onboard systems, a dedicated start bank for engine and genset starting, and a separate bank for the thrusters, each with dedicated charging systems.
At sea, the batteries are charged by engine or generator driven alternators and while at a dock, by the inverters and chargers via shorepower.
Motive power is via the venerable Cummins QSB5.9L common rail diesel engine rated at 330 hp with approximately 830 hours. There is adequate room to access all sides of the engine, and the surrounding systems.
Engine room access is via a large door from the accommodations foyer, or through the salon floor for more comprehensive access if ever needed.
