2005 SELENE 53' Pilothouse Theodore

Theodore is a proven ocean trawler, equipped for extended cruising or living aboard from Alaska to Mexico and Bahamas, and Florida to Maine. She is a head-turning beauty comprehensively equipped for safe and reliable boating anywhere. Additionally, she has done the Down East Circle Loop and her air draft is therefore capable of the Great Loop as well.

Carefully maintained at all times.

A more complete gallery of pictures, CAD drawings of the ship, and detailed description is available on request.

Some Very Special Features

We'll get into details on every aspect of the yacht, but at the risk of being prematurely redundant, consider a few thoughts:

In yachts of this class, superior fit and finish, electronics, stabilizers, etc., are rightfully expected. Theodore has all of these and more. She was designed and equipped to provide the
maximum of comfort, safety, boat handling convenience. Perfect for the cruising couple, or even a single-hander.

Here are only a few of the reminders of the things a future owner can particularly enjoy, and which in combination distinguish Theodore from most other trawlers in her class:

• A unique remote engine/gearbox/rudder/thruster control that can be mounted at four
   different forward and aft positions on either side, fore and aft.
• Remote hand-held wireless controller for the Side-Power thrusters. Of great
   convenience and help docking, undocking, and tending to the anchor.
• 1275 AH of recent AGM batteries to provide electrical loads to sustain normal usage
   of 120 vac for several days at anchor without the use of the genset.
• 300-amp Balmar alternator to efficiently recharge house batteries, even on short
• Oversized 9 s.f. Naiad stabilizers
• HRO 600 gpd watermaker
• Kabola diesel heater provide silent, even heat throughout. Ideal for extended
   periods of living aboard without the need to run the reverse-cycle Cruisair HVAC
• Video cameras monitoring the ER and aft.
• Fresh bottom paint September 2018.
• The third stateroom is a bona-fide office. For anyone working away from home, this
    part of the yacht might become a deductible expense as a home office.
• As with any yacht that includes permanent sleeping, cooking, and sanitary facilities,
   interest on financing could be deductible as a second home. 

Cockpit and Swim Platform

The swim step provides easy access from floating docks. Its four removable “staples” and bulwark handrails give easy of egress throughout the stern cockpit door. The Cablemaster power cord compartment is located near the starboard side. A telescoping swim ladder under a double bolted hatch is located centrally.

The cockpit provides an extremely pleasant, year around extension of the salon level when enclosed. When the clear, EZ2CY Acrylite window enclosures are installed and the spiral
stairs covered it is for all practical purposes an additional weather tight room. The boat can be docked, or handled when fishing, from the rear by the remote engine, thruster and
rudder control. The aft shower is very useful for rinsing off after a swim, cleaning shoes, or dog washing.

• In addition to entry from the swim platform the cockpit is entered from port or
    starboard side doors.
• There is a spiral stair from the cockpit to the boat deck with white Stamoid cover
    with zippers that can be opened from both the cockpit and boat deck sides.
• There is a large cabinet under the stair and two smaller cabinets beside the stair.
   The lower of the two smaller cabinets has a 110-volt outlet, and connections for the
   remote engine controls.

    fresh water with an attached disappearing shower hose on the aft wall.

To starboard are two leather barrel chairs with Ottoman storage. Behind each chair are
storage compartments. A three-drawer cabinet is located in the aft, starboard corner, with a
small cabinet between the chairs and an eight-drawer cabinet forward. All drawers and cabinet
doors are fitted with push button latches to secure them under way.

On the back wall is the temperature control and door for the Grunert cold plate freezer with 6.5 c.f. of storage, and other closets for an additional 8 c.f. of storage. The port side closet has the muffler for the Yanmar wing engine, the manifold and valves for the Kabola heating system, and the Cruisair 3600 BTU compressor for the salon, galley, and pilothouse HVAC.

Optional Second Stair to Below Decks

From the galley area, to provide easier access to the lower level, Theodore has the optional second stair with curved hand rail and overhead handrail. There are five steps compared to eight steps in the forward stair. There is a cedar lined locker for hanging items on the aft wall of the stair, a small, document sized glass cabinet on the inboard wall, and a large, cedar lined locker for hanging items at the starboard side, at the foot of the stair. Above the stair is a glass fronted, two-section lighted cabinet with a shelf with holes for bottles and a glass shelf above it.  Above that is a glass-fronted cabinet for curios or other small items. Both cabinets have lights with independent switches that can be set to turn lights on manually or automatically when cabinet doors open.

A most important feature of the second stair is the ability to close a door to the master stateroom while accessing the engine room. This provides privacy and an additional level of sound isolation for occupants of the master stateroom yet provides easy access to checking the engine room during long passages. The second stair also provides additional egress from the lower level in case of emergency. 


The Selene 53 pilothouse is a command center of extraordinary utility and comfort. Forward raked windows provide shading and minimize glare.  Air conditioning, heat, window defrosters, powerful windshield wipers, Diamond Sea Glaze doors, and more provide an all-weather, secure and comfortable environment for piloting the boat.  Theodore is fitted with a comprehensive suite of navigation and system equipment.
