There are few boats as ideally suited for coastal and long range cruising as the Selene 55. Bella Luna is hull number 27, a lovely edition of this popular model that was ordered with a great selection of gear and has been maintained to the highest standards by her current owner.
Her flag blue hull is striking and her low profile flybridge and reverse raked windows with Portuguese bridge convey her offshore determination. The Selene 55 offers a considerable amount of additional volume and comfort to her sister ship the Selene 53. It’s interesting what a little more room will do to transform a boat, the Selene 55 has an extra 6” in the pilothouse (enough to fit a helm chair) and an additional 18” in the cockpit (making it a popular place for lounging, fishing and dining).
The aft deck (cockpit) is enclosed with see through panels and there are teak decks that extend forward into the walking side decks. The saloon and galley are on the entrance level and there is a rich teak interior that has been tastefully decorated. The pilothouse has an all-encompassing view and a great suite of navigation and communications electronics. Guests seem to congregate on the flybridge (covered) and boat deck (open) while enjoying the world drift by at comfortable trawler speeds.
Down below there are three cabins, master aft, VIP forward and a bunk room to port. Two heads with showers compliment the interior layout.
The engine room is accessed from the master (and through a galley hatch) and has a Cummins QSL-9 405 HP main engine on centerline and a Northern Lights 12kW generator.
The sliding windows in the saloon and galley provide an impressive air flow while underway or at anchor and the entire living spaces enjoy air conditioning.
No tender is included, but she does have an Aritex crane. There is also a watermaker installed. For boat handling you have bow and stern thrusters and for anchoring there is an electric horizontal windlass with two plow anchors at the ready.
The listing broker sold Bella Luna to her current owner a few years ago. The search back then started for a Nordhavn 55, but an open minded approach to find the best value led to the Selene 55 as a more than viable alternative and marvelous opportunity to purchase a similar size cruising trawler. She is titled in an LLC and USCG Documented.
There are few boats as ideally suited for coastal and long range cruising at the Selene 55. Bella Luna is hull number 27, a lovely edition of this popular model that was ordered with a great selection of gear and has been maintained to the highest standards by her current owner.
