Our Selene 60 Ocean Trawler

Destiny will not be launched until summer 2019 - so the above is a Sister Ship lucky enough to already be on the water

Interior Design

We have the chance to design our interior with the classic teak we want, but with a modern touch - we're working with Jet Tern's designers on this to create the perfect boat for us!

Technical Equipment

Specifications of machinery and equipment and our rationale for the engine, water maker, electrical systems, water systems, stabilisation and electronics as well as the domestics

Specification

Selene Ocean Trawlers are fully customisable and here you will find details of the complete specification we have chosen to support our long-term liveaboard lifestyle in comfort

Our Voyage Plans

No passage planning done just yet - but here's what's on our plan

Indian Ocean

Indian Ocean

Madagascar and the Maldives along with Reunion Island and Mauritius – we’ll have to plan for monsoons, tropical storms and cyclones but should be expert by then!

Zakynthos Shipwreck Beach

Southern Europe

Turkey, Greece, Croatia and hopefully Israel, Morocco and Tunisia.  Southern Europe is planned for the end of our trip – as this will be when it’s all over and we’re coming home 🙁

Norwegian Fjords

Northern Europe

Scotland and Ireland, the Faroe Islands, Scandinavia – including the spectacular fjords of Norway, the Baltic countries, the inland waterways of the Netherlands

African Coast

African Coast

We aren’t yet sure of destinations here yet – we’ll be heading to Cape Town in South Africa but the rest will depend on lots more research – avoiding the piracy areas of Somalia of course!

South America

South America

Rio de Janeiro of course – and again a lot of research required still to find a good route to take in as much as possible.  Argentina? Peru? Venezuela? Chile?  Hopefully we’ll get to see them all!

Caribbean and Florida

The Caribbean

Including Florida – we’ve cruised the Keys before and up to Miami – this time we’ll get to see as many Caribbean Islands as possible and soak up the palm trees and sunshine.

US West Coast

United States

From Seattle and Oregon, down the West Coast to Franciso, Los Angeles and the Gulf of California – then southwards to Mexico.  We’ll end up at the Panama Canal we think …

Pacific North West

Pacific North West

Canada and Alaska – say no more … one of the most stunning areas of the world, with snow down to the water edge and the most spectacular scenery I’ve ever seen … trawler heaven!

North Pacific

North Pacific

From Japan we hope to cross the Pacific “the wrong way” to see the remote Aleutian Islands across to Canada – icebergs and volcanoes will be the experience of a lifetime.

Galapagos Islands

South Pacific

A whole range of tiny islands spread across a massive sea area Fiji, Cook Islands, Solomon Islands, Galapagos Islands, Tonga, Hawaii and lots of unknown others in between!

Australia and NZ

Australia and New Zealand

After the Far East, we plan to head down under to Australia, New Zealand and Tasmania.  The passage plan isn’t done yet – we may end up doing this area twice.

The Far East

Far East

“Destiny” will be delivered in Hong Kong and we will cross to the Philippines to complete commissioning.  Then Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand … there are hundreds of islands to explore!

First Trip to China

Finally the time came for us to make the long awaited trip to China – but in true Zadelhoff style, nothing is ever simple.  Once again, we were travelling from different places with me living on the tiny island of Gozo in the middle of the Mediterranean and Ed currently in Greece getting our current…

Laying the Hull

As soon as the deposit was paid, Jet Tern started the build process of our new Selene straight away.  They prepared the mould for the classic Selene 60 Trawler and laminating began.  One of our key requirements has always been – no white boat!  However, this is a pretty expensive “red line” and there’s always…
