Selenes are designed as serious long distance offshore cruisers. Fitted with a wing engine and stabilizers Chatham II is very capable of taking you to Hawaii with ample fuel to spare. Even smaller Selenes are known to be cruising the Pacific in a manner which used to be the domain of sailboats alone. Now such adventures are possible in level of luxury and elegance that was unimaginable a generation ago.
When arriving at your destination you will find the Selene is able to get into that tight moorage space using its bow and stern thrusters. These work well in conjunction with the big slow turning prop which gives an immediate response to helm controls. Chatham II is capable of turning 360 on the spot.
Accommodation is both elegant with nice touches such as personally selected granite counter tops, beveled glass cabinets, subdued lighting, and practical with ample of storage, hand holds in all the right places and a general feeling confidence and capability.
From the the very first the owners have used their years of experience to ensure that Chatham II would be yacht worthy of the high standards they demanded. From overseeing construction, installing redundant systems, and storing her in a boat house, to maintaining her to a very high standard indeed this yacht stands out from the crowd. If she were a car she would be described as being in "concours condition". Chatham II's elegant lines draw the eye of the observer and hints of the sumptuous interior that awaits their pleasure.

- On approaching Chatham II one cannot help but notice the beautifully varnished teak cap rails whose width give a first indication of the quality and strength of build that was employed in the construction of this vessel. (The aft transom gateway is eight inches thick!)
- There are three points of entry to welcome guests into the cockpit area. The first is via the transom gate, and the others via the port and starboard bulwark gates.
- The transom area is protected by substantial staples and a well placed handrail.There are two fold away cleats for tenders and a fold away swim ladder with a convenient grab rail..
- The large cockpit area is protected by a full rigid hardtop with built in lighting. The sides are reassuringly high and lead on to covered side decks on both port and starboard. Against the salon bulkhead there is a custom made four draw cabinet with a hard counter top. In the top drawer is found two TD 900 wireless radio headsets to help when docking and in the cabinet are found lifejackets lifelines and flares.
- Fenders are secured via built in cleats for quick release, and moorage ropes are secured via substantial chromed cleats in hawseholes.
- Good drainage is provided by two aft scuppers with one way flapper valves and two further drains.
- The cockpit also houses the aft shore power receptacle (there is another up forward), a fresh water hot and cold shower and a raw water wash down.
- At the centre of the cockpit is the lazarette hatch. This is unlocked by a lever in just inside the salon. Gas struts keep the hatch open. A small ladder with teak steps allows easy access onto the teak gratings.
- Here we find the new 4D AGM house batteries behind cabinets to starboard.
- Aft is access to the hydraulic steering gear with fittings for the emergency tiller.
- To port are housed the aft stern-thruster batteries, the Hurricane II Hydronic Heating System and the emergency tiller.
- The Hurricane II Hydronic Heating System has an electric heating element inside a boiler. On Chatham II there are two pumps attached to the system which can circulate warm/hot water around the vessel. One of these is a continuous pump designed to leave on throughout the winter. This reduces condensation considerably.
- Forward are shelves with spare parts.
- Overall the lazarette is spotless and very well organised.
- From the cockpit access forward is via wide covered companionways with 3 foot high bulwarks. Recessed lighting above and at step level further forward.
- Here we find the engine room air intakes placed inboard to reduce salt air /spray ingress. This simple but innovative idea significantly reduces maintenance and improves reliability.
- On both the port and starboard sides are the inboard fuel filling stations for the two fuel tanks with a built in spill prevention trap to avoid a mess on the pristine decks.
- Going forward we have a full walk around Portuguese bridge with built in storage lockers (two survival suits are stored in the lockers here) and an access gate to the foredeck.
- Walking onto the foredeck ones eyes are drawn to the sturdy bowsprit which houses the two 50kg anchors, one CQR and one Bruce, each with 400 feet of 3/8inch chain with chain breaks. Foot controls for the windlass are used on the foredeck with a remote control in the pilothouse.
- Fresh and raw water washdowns to starboard of the windlass.
- The forward shore power outlet is to port. Both outlets, fore and aft, are connected to a shore power isolation transformer.
- Right behind the windlass is a substantial sampson post.

- Just inside the salon to port can be found the lazarette lock and the main battery switches.

- A hatch by the main door gives access down to the "commissary" which houses a built in freezer, wine racks and plenty of storage.
- Fixed seating to port has leather upholstery and is wrapped round the table which can raise up for eating or drop down as a coffee table. It can also move forward and back to include guests in the arm chairs opposite. Leaves on either end also extend the dining area if required.
- Strip lighting under the galley counter is installed to bring gentle illumination, and of course normal lighting is provided by more traditional inset lights and four Ocean Fricast lamps from Denmark spaced around the salon.

2016 PowerBoat Guide
"Experienced cruisers will find a lot to like in the Selene 53 (called the Selene 54 since 2010), a serious long-range passagemaker whose sturdy pilothouse profile masks a luxuriously appointed interior. Like other Selene models, the 53 rides on a full-displacement hull with a relatively sharp entry and a long, prop-protecting keel. The focal point of this yacht is her well-appointed pilothouse, fronted by a traditional Portuguese bridge, which towers high above the water for a commanding view. A big U-shaped galley is forward in the salon, and a "commissary" provides an additional storage area for cruise essentials. Below, the living quarters consist of three staterooms and two full heads. The master stateroom which is amidships has direct access to the Selene's standup engine room which can also be reached via a spiral staircase opposite the galley.(See Note below). Outside, the cockpit and wide side decks are sheltered from sun and spray by flybridge overhangs. A full teak interior, salon entertainment center, washer/dryer, bow and stern thrusters, and a bow pulpit are standard. A single 430hp Cummins diesel will cruise the Selene 53 at 8 knots and reach 11-12 knots wide open.(See note 2)"
Note; Chatham II does not have the second stairwell but instead has more storage space in both the salon and the master cabin. The headroom in the engine room is standing but not full standing headroom. A hatch in the salon leads to steps down into the engine room to give easy access on both sides.
Note 2: the Cummins QSL9-405 MCP engine is 405 hp not 430hp.
Chatham II's boathouse is also available, and listed separately for C$95,000
A 70ft boathouse with Aluminium sidings and timber frame built by Oak Bay Marine.
- Rust free, zero maintenance aluminium cladding
- Constructed with proprietary support brackets that ensure level, clear walkways
- Roof felt eliminates condensation and keeps your vessel dry
- Construction grade fir wall studs and STK full size 2 inch Western Red Cedar decking
- Envirofloat full encapsulated styrofoam billets which do not deteriorate and are impervious to fuel and marine life
- Front curtain is attached to side walls via a fixed aluminium slider.
- Roof venting
The boathouse, (number A-1), has the best spot in the marina and benefits from two extra windows on the open side to let in natural light. The curtained entrance faces North and so offers maximum protection from sun and winter storms. Also having the marina dock just outside it is a convenient place to tie up while loading up stores and provisions for your extended cruising adventures.
