About this Selene 72 Ocean Explorer


This Selene 72 is ideal for discerning yachtsman who wishes to cruise to distance islands and enjoy the safety & comfort of an explorer. She has range for passage across the Oceans, thus enabling her around-the-world range. The yacht is fully equipped with satellite phone &TV to keep owner and guest in touch with the world underway or at anchor. There are many unique features on this yacht, such as full beam on the portside for more room in the saloon, dive compressor and scuba tank storage, bulbous bow, entertainment center and lots more. Many factory options have been added to ensure safety and comfort to the owner and his guests.



Upon entering the saloon from the aft saloon door, one will notice the wide beam because of the extended full beam on the port side. There is a long sofa on the port side instead of the normal 2 single-seater armchairs. This is to allow items to be kept below the seats such as fishing reels etc. There are also space to keep other fishing gears and life jackets. Also on the portside is a large 40” LCD TV which is linked to the “KVH” satellite receiver. It provides good, clean reception. The TV can be retracted into storage cupboard. Next to the long sofa seat is the entertainment console. It is a top of the line “BOSE” set hooked up to the Hi-fi system and karaoke set. The karaoke set has thousands of songs stored inside. The speakers are also “BOSE” with surround-sound. Forward of the entertainment console is the stairs leading to the Master’s stateroom below. On the starboard side is the “U-shaped” settee and the dining table. There is also a display cabinet forward of the dining table.


There is a galley counter and full galley equipment with electrical hobs and an exhaust fan. A full size twin door “Liebherr” refrigerator stands at the bulkhead to provide adequate food storage for long cruises. Below the counter is also a garbage compactor, drawers and dishwasher. An electric hob and oven completes the galley layout. It is a fully functional galley. There are also additional AC power outlets to cater for additional galley appliances if needed. At the lower deck are 2 deep freezer for keeping meat and food for long cruises.


There are 3 guest cabins. Access to these 3 cabins is by the stairs from the starboard side of the wheelhouse. There is a VIP cabin located at the forward. It has a queen-size island berth. Hanging lockers are provided and additional drawer space can be found below the bed. The bed can be lifted upwards to access additional storage, and it is ideal to store suitcases and other bulky items. This cabin has a shower/toilet attached. The starboard guest cabins has a hi-lo bunk with hanging lockers and drawers. There is also a small side table with Internet wire points provided. The portside cabin has 2 single berths, with cupboard. Both cabins share the bathroom/toilet, a linked door. All the cabins have USB charging pods.


The access to the master bedroom is by the stairs at the forward portside of the saloon. It has a king size bed, vanity table with attached bathroom/toilet. It also has its own TV and DVD player. A large shower/toilet/wash basin is attached to the master cabin. Again, there are drawers and storage below the bed for personal items and suitcases. Extra storage is available below the floorboards to the bilge area. The master stateroom has full width of the yacht’s beam and has special glass windows on the port & starboard sides. A small sofa is provided on the port side.


It is unusual to have 2 crew cabins in a yacht of this size. There’s a cabin for the captain with a single bunk and another cabin with hi-lo bunks for the crew. The crew shares a common bathroom and toilet. This crew cabin area also houses the washer/dryer and the extra freezer. It also has easy access to the “Sea Recovery” water-maker. A work table with a vice is also provided. Access to the crew cabin is through the transom door or the hatch door from the aft deck. The crew cabins also has direct access to the engine room.



On the portside of the wheelhouse aft is the half oval-shaped settee with a table. This is to provide companionship for the helmsman. The wheelhouse console houses a 10.8” “GARMIN” monitor which can display all the necessary navigation aids. Next to the “GARMIN” monitor is the display screen for the security cameras. The console also houses the full Cummins main engine gauges and the VHF radio. For serious cruising and safety, the yacht is equipped with a KHV satellite phone from “Inmarsat”. Hence, the yacht is never out of range for communication. The wheelhouse is served by 2 doors, on the port and starboard sides. It is also equipped with a “Stidd” helm chair.



Selene is thoughtful to provide shore power for forward and aft transom plug-ins, including fresh water and salt water outlets. A hatch sits in the center of the fore deck to serve as an escape hatch and ventilation for the VIP cabin below. This hatch is fitted with a retractable ladder, sunscreen and insect screen. There is a heavy-duty “Maxwell” anchor windlass with 2 chain capstans/gypsies, operating 2 anchors. One anchor is equipped with full chain whilst the other is fitted with chain/rope for deeper anchorage. The signature design of the Selene is the stainless steel “Samson Post” located proudly behind the anchor windlass.


Access to the flybridge is only through the wheelhouse. The console houses all the essential navigation equipment and has an independent “Icom” VHF radio. An identical set of Cummins engine gauges are also provided similar to those in the wheelhouse. Another feature worth mentioning is the lighter socket for charging handphones or providing DC power for appliances. This yacht is unique as it has a fully enclosed flybridge, with hi-lo table, TV and toilet facilities. It is also fully air-conditioned. The helm is fitted with 2 “Stidd” chairs.


You will notice that there is no stairs from the flybridge cockpit down to aft deck. This is specifically taken off to free the space to install 2 dinghies. It worked out very well as the lower cockpit space is use to fit the scuba tanks filler valves whereas the flybridge deck is used to fit the smaller dinghy. There is a L&M three phase dive air compressor located below the settee at the bulkhead. The dinghy cradles are mounted on flush stainless-steel deck fittings which will permit the cradles to be removed if the space is used for entertainment. For serious cruising, the yacht is also equipped with 2 inflatable life rafts, each with an eightman capacity. A heavy duty “Steelhead” davit is also provided for launching and retrieval of the dinghies.


The mast installation is a standard arrangement. It is designed specifically to accommodate all the equipment. The fiberglass mast is fitted with the radar scanner mounted higher so as to reduce any interference from the “KVH” satellite TV and Inmarsat domes. There is also a lightning conductor on the top of the mast. A remote searchlight is also mounted on the forward of the roof.


The aft swim platform is built with the slightly extended option, and is fitted with stainless steel removable guardrails. On the starboard side are the receptacles for the shore power and water inlet.


The yacht is powered by 2 x 456HP “Cummins” Engines which also drives the 2 hydraulic pumps that powers the 2 “Naiad” stabilizers while underway. Two “Onan” generators provides adequate power for the yacht. One generator is connected to a converter that provide three phase outlet to power the air compressor for charging the scuba tanks. A generator also drives the “Naiad” zero-speed stabilizers while at anchor. The air-con units, fuel polisher system, electrical oil change pumps, CCTV camera, fuel gauge sight glass, batteries, etc. are also housed in the engine room. There are 2 wing tanks, each capable of holding about 1,500 US gallons of diesel fuel. The engine room is very well insulated with high grade sound proofing materials and the saloon floor is further insulated with a “floating floorboard” system. Therefore, the living areas in the yacht are quieter than most other boats. This yacht is fitted with 2 sea chest to provide more reliable sea water cooling for the engine and equipment. All valves hoses and connectors are of high quality materials. There is also an automatic “Fireboy” fire extinguisher installed in the engine room. Adequate air supply is provided by 4 blowers for the engine room.


Behind to the gallery is a large electrical console which houses the AC and DC main switches for the yacht. It is illuminated and is protected by a glass panel door. This yacht have 2 generators to provide a more efficient power supply. It also has a 3 phase AC powered electrical converter to power the dive compressor located at the flybridge to refill the dive tanks.
