About Selene Trawlers

Selene Trawlers are one of the most respected brands among production yachts and have established themselves as an industry leader through design innovation. Authorities often cite the 1950’s era conversion of some North Sea fishing boats, declared surplus by the British government, as the true beginning of the pleasure trawler genre. The same characteristics that made the full displacement deep sea fishing boat hulls suitable for one of the ocean’s most unforgiving occupations almost immediately attracted a specific breed of pleasure boater.

The North Sea hulls were built to go to weather, tasked with a year ’round fishery in waters renowned for brutal winter weather. Fuel economy and range were primary considerations in the commercial fishery- savvy skippers wanted the flexibility to stay on the fishing grounds in search of a catch without being forced back to port to refuel. Pleasure boaters especially appreciated the stability of displacement hulls, smoothing out the ride underway and less prone to rock and roll when at anchor.

Fuel economy, range, and seaworthy design aren’t typically associated with speedy performance. Yachtsmen attracted to the new trawler category were less interested in speed. They recognized that when seas get rough every type of power vessel slowed down to trawler speeds, but even then did not ride as comfortably. As the decades have passed, the pure cost of fuel and geo-political ramifications have increased the attention paid to fuel economy.

Most significantly, the introduction of trawler style yachts fostered the advent of a new concept in yachting. For the first time in human history, the concept of a long distance voyage on a private pleasure boat included power vessels as well as sailboats.

The Selene line of modified displacement hull trawlers comes from Jet-Tern Marine, a subsidiary of Jet-Tern Group – The shipyard was started in 1998, employs about 500 people and is the darling of naval architect and passionate boat builder, Howard Chen. Located two hours from Hong Kong on mainland China, the shipyard first produced a 43 foot trawler that was marketed under the name "Solo".
