Selene Yachts, which is known for building trawlers from 49 to 62 feet, is working on a 92-foot explorer yacht that is scheduled for delivery in spring 2015.

The Selene 92 is designed by Guido De Groot of The Netherlands and is being built in China by Jet Tern Marine. De Groot's previous projects are widely varied and have included the 234-foot Feadship Utopia, the 136-foot AB Yachts My Toy and the 118-foot Perini Navi Gitana.

Design details on the Selene 92 will include a raised pilothouse, a Portuguese bridge, a bulbous bow, large side windows and stainless-steel anchor pockets, all intended to make the yacht comfortable during extended offshore cruising. Full specs have yet to be released, but she is being promoted as a fuel-efficient, long-range yacht. Her renderings are being shown with a spicy, brick-red hull.

The arrangements plans show a four-cabin layout with all staterooms on the bottom deck. They include a full-beam master amidships, a forepeak VIP with a walkaround double berth, and two staterooms with twin beds. There is an additional cabin abaft the engine room for crew, accessed via the stern.
