Vessel Walk Through

The ample guest stateroom is forward and offers a very comfortable centerline island queen berth.

There is a recently installed large flatscreen TV on the bulkhead wall to port. Natural light and ventilation abounds with four opening port lights and large hatch overhead. Just aft to starboard is the guest head. Two opening port lights illuminate and ventilate the vanity, sink, VacuFlush toilet and large stall shower.

Continuing aft along the companionway you will note the well-lit steps back up to the pilothouse to your left. Just a few more steps and you are entering the amidships Master Stateroom. A centerline queen berth with a memory foam mattress, custom comforter and pillow shams greets you. With many drawers and cedar lined locker storage you will have ample options to store all your adventure wear including a custom installed safe and recently installed large flatscreen TV. The stateroom has four opening port lights. An ample en-suite head is to starboard nicely laid out also with vanity, sink, VacuFlush toilet and a nice separate stall shower. A water tight door on the bulkhead of the stall shower leads to the engine room. Forward and to port is a nicely proportioned private office / third port stateroom with built in desk, lots of storage and two large bunk beds.

Moving starboard we head up the curved stairs that lead to the pilothouse. Now in the pilothouse, looking forward from the centerline helm seat you have easy reach to all your navigation and systems monitoring. To port and starboard Diamond Seaglaze Dutch Doors which give access to both of the side decks. Behind you have a settee with a table and a watch berth behind it. Beautiful refinements and woodworking give it a touch of charm.

Leaving the pilothouse and continuing aft down two steps the galley is on the port side. From the fully equipped open galley you look back into the very nicely finished and appointed teak salon with teak and holly sole. Your entertainment is provided via a fold away flatscreen TV and a high-end audio sound system. Two leather chairs with custom made matching foot rests store under the chairs. You can move them out and use them to use as an ottoman or you can raise them and use them as extra seating at the table. To port is a built-in settee with storage and a high-low teak table. There is a large engine access door in the sole of the salon if needed.

Up on the flybridge deck you will find a commanding view both fore and aft. From the wheel, you can see the both stern corner rails to give you good situational awareness. With a bow thruster and Throttle and Transmission Controls at (4) Four Stations, the Selene 53 can be tucked nicely into most any spot in the marina. There are (2) helm chairs on the Flybridge, as well as an L-Shaped Settee and a Wet bar with DC plugs. The Flybridge can be accessed via the steps from inside at the Pilothouse or from the aft deck via the flybridge steps.

The Selene Foredeck

Selene believes in making your cruising enjoyable. The foredeck is an example of this for 2 reasons. (1) You have room to work the anchor and have your feet under you on a wide and open foredeck. (2) Take a look at some of the other trawlers available - they are either built with a slippery sheer that in the rain would make docking or pulling the anchor a challenge for footing, or they are tight and have different deck levels to make just getting around the foredeck challenging. The Selene 53 has a wide and open foredeck, no stumbling needed. Entertainment and Enjoyable outdoor space. With the Portuguese Bridge, the Selene foredeck frames the anchor platform and offers you not only the foredeck settee, but also room to add foldable deck chairs to being guests up forward. The anchor platform has a sampson post for lines, as well as room for twin anchors, port and starboard from the anchor platform. The electric windlass can be operated via foot pedals, or at either helm.
