2008 SELENE 59' Pilothouse Josephine

Having sold this very successful Selene 59/60 to the present owners and witnessed their years of ownership and choice of additions, changes, and improvements, I must say that Josephine has become one of the most improved and user-friendly blue water yachts available on the market today!  From the added bulbous bow, all the way to the stern, every category that you can imagine has been improved on…not because she was in need of repair, but because her meticulous owners enjoyed the process of refinement and safety at sea for their family.
