Selene Yachts History
Selene Yachts is one of the brands of Jet Tern Marine, a Taiwanese firm. Founded in 1998 by Howard Chen, Selene yachts is headquartered in Hou-Jie, with its shipyard located in Donugguan, China – a town known for its many furniture designers. Because of Donugguan’s status as a hub for wooden cabinetry and furniture, Selene Yachts has easy access to materials to create its luxurious interior yacht trawlers and explorers. The brand is focused on the construction of fiberglass trawlers and exploration yachts with full-displacement hulls guaranteeing comfort and stability. 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 actively participates in the design, planning, and construction of every Selene yacht built. Later, in 2006, Selene grew to be able to own its own stainless-steel workshop, which help reduced costs to the end consumer. Two years later, due to the increasing need for bigger facilities and an easily reachable location next to the water, the company opened an additional shipyard in Zhuhai near Macau, just 70 miles from Dongguan. The new shipyard houses two workshops – A & B – with approximately 172,000 total square feet of space. Equipped with 4 cranes able to lift 100 tons and able to accommodate 36 boats under construction, it is the largest single production shop in Asia. 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. Today, there are over 400 Selene yachts cruising the world’s waters.
