Selene Yachts is one of the brands of Jet Tern Marine, the Taiwanese firm established in 1998. The brand is focused on the construction of fiberglass trawlers and exploration yachts with full displacement hull guaranteeing comfort and stability. Its founder Howard Chen has dedicated almost all his life to the yachting industry, starting from his university studies in Naval Architecture, working in the management team of various shipyards, until he opened his own shipyard in Dongguan, China. Mr. Chen now actively participates in the design, planning, and construction of every Selene yacht built. In 2008 due to the increasing need for bigger facilities and an easily reachable location next to the water, the new shipyard opened doors in Zhuhai, China. With its two workshops and a warehouse of more than 330,000 square feet, the new shipyard of Selene Yachts is the biggest in Asia, and since 2018 is the only location where all models of the brand are built.
Selene Yachts Builds Hundreds Trawlers and Exploration Yachts Per Year
More than 400 Selene Yachts have been built to date, including models from 38 feet to 103 feet. The yacht builder offers various trawler and explorer series such as Selene Classic Explorer, Selene Voyager, Selene Ocean Explorer, Selene Ocean Clipper, and Artemis, which is the smaller range series. One of the new additions to the series is a 70-foot bi-hull Selene Ocean Explorer. Among the most popular models for the brand are Selene 54, Selene 58, and Selene 60.
The Jet Tern Marine’s shipyard in Zhuhai can accommodate up to 36 yachts under construction at the same time. The shipyard can build up to a hundred yachts per year.
