This price is less than the two other Selene 53's now for sale on the West Coast and, importantly, is the only 53 available on the Left Coast with a factory installed hard-top which is an important option. Two Selene 53's have sold in the United States last year for $890,000 and $853,000 and neither had hard-tops! This great Selene 53 is owned by an LLC and is kept at California Yacht Club in Marina Del Rey.
This Selene is fully equipped with great, intelligently selected options including hardtop, Cummings diesel and "get home" system as well as a very long list of upgrades.
The Selene 53 is the most popular of all the Selene models and "Next Chapter" is at the top of the list as you will see upon your inspection. She is ready to cast off and begin cruising now providing comfort at sea and safety with over 2,500 nautical mile range.
This Selene is corporately owned.
We have been involved with this Selene 53 while owned by her second and third owner's. We sold a Selene 59 to the second owner and "Next Chapter" to the current owner who has just retired. Both owners have kept this 53 in outstanding condition. We expect a great survey! Please be sure to review Additional Gear and Equipment in this Listing. This has just been upgraded.
Please see photos of customized third stateroom into office which still provides sleeping. Photos also show "take home" system remote at Lower Helm and drive unit in Engine Room.
"Next Chapter" is Corporate Owned Selen 53 2007

It is currently servicing as an office but can be easily converted back to sleeping space.
Galley has received excellent upgrades with a custom refrigerator and freezer unit, Force 10 stove/oven, trash compactor, and additional galley storage cabinetry. Other features include: new (2020) GE Microwave/Convection, special burl-wood-style granite countertops and overhangs with sliding doors to place items under the counter for extra space, two large refrigerator drawers to starboard offering still more space for food and drink.

The pilothouse features "Dutch" style doors that can open the top half for ventilation and offer a variety of fresh air options. A set of white internal windshield cover shields cuts the heat when not cruising and offers privacy. A ceiling skylight can be opened to the air. The seating is designed to be elevated and the views forward to the outside are a major plus for the Selene. A small day bed is included as are cabinets for charts, boat documentation, and safety equipment.

A large, lockable floor door opens to the lazarette. Walking along the back of the deck allows easy access to the dock for boarding along with small side doors. Walking outside along either of the outside passageways leads to the large front deck with seating facing forward. The front deck allows easy access to the anchors and large Maxwell double windlass. The boat has railings all around the decks and passageways for maximum safety at sea.
Completed before the Fubar Trip from San Diego to La Paz, Mexico in 2011, the Galley received an excellent upgrade with a brand new refrigerator and freezer unit, force 10 stove/oven, and additional galley storage cabinetry. The owners have been very happy with the performance and also bolster their cold storage with a Keel-Cooled freezer located in the Commissary.
With the granite counter overhangs, the owners added sliding doors to place items under the counter for extra space and keep the counters clean and tidy.
"Next Chapter" features a 12/24 DCV,110/220 ACV system with 8 AGM Lifeline house batteries (1,000 amp), and additional banks of 2 batteries each for engine starting, generator starting, and rear thruster and bow thruster. Power is further supported by an enhanced main engine alternator (Delco 105 amp) (older alternator serves as a spare), and a recently upgraded Outback Inverter. There are two 2 Mastervolt charger systems with controls in pilot house and a Xantrex battery monitor. Two, 50 amp, 125/250 volt inputs (house and air) for shore power are available from both the stern and bow deck areas, together with Marinco TV and telephone inlets. The large 16 kw generator in the engine room completes the power profile. Note that there are large areas on top of the boat for the installation of a number of solar panels if desired.
