Originally marketed as the Solo 43 in 19982000, the Selene 43 (called the Selene 45 since 2010) is a long-range trawler whose traditional pilothouse profile conceals a practical and very innovative interior. By any standard, the 43 is a handsome yacht with a Portuguese bridge fronting the house and a salty, go-anywhere appearance. In the salon, the Selenes unusual center galley arrangement allows passage around both ends, either up to the pilothouse or down to the forward living quarters. Also unique, part of the guest cabin bulkhead folds away to create a large common area abaft the master stateroom. The Selenes salon, while not spacious compared with other 43-footers, is furnished with an L-shaped lounge aft and barstool seating at the galley. A watch berth and inside access to the flybridge are found in the pilothouse, and the entire interior is highlighted by solid teak joinery and a teak-and-holly sole. Additional features include a washer/dryer, two chain lockers at the bow, a hinged swim platform, and a huge commissary storage area between the engine room and lazarette. A single 220hp Cummins diesel will cruise at 8 knots with a range of 2,000-plus miles.
