Selene yachts has been building and designing ocean going passagemakers for over 20 years. Today over 400 Selene trawlers are cruising the oceans. Selene trawlers are known for their graceful and elegant lines, beautiful teak interiors, top notch craftsmanship and stout full displacement hulls. High Spirit carries on this tradition in fine style. Her current owners have carefully upgraded and improved her to meet their own high standards.
High Spirit has not been left tied up at the dock like so many boats, but rather she has been busy cruising up and down the U. S. East coast. From Halifax, Nova Scotia down to the Virgin Islands and the Dominican Republic, she is a well-traveled trawler.
High Spirit is well equipped with numerous systems to take you to your destination in comfort and safety. Improvements in the last two years include a hull paint job, new upholstery, new galley refrigerator/freezer, new laundry appliances, a new water maker and more! Redundant electronics assist with navigating. Bow and stern thrusters as well as active fin stabilizers help with handling and provide a more comfortable ride. A close review of her equipment selections will show you she has been outfitted for long ranging adventures. A full-time captain is aboard to look after and care for her, keeping her fresh, active and raring to go. She is even equipped with a wing/get home engine, not a common option on a Selene. Whether your plans include coastal or long-range cruising, High Spirit will take you there in style.
Cockpit: You can board High Spirit from fore or aft entry doors on port and starboard or via the swim deck and transom door. The cockpit is huge and covered overhead. You will notice natural teak decking that extends to the side decks on both sides of the saloon. On a hot afternoon you can enjoy a cold beverage sitting in a comfortable settee with your glass perched on the beautifully finished teak table. The cockpit is surrounded by a gorgeous teak cap rail that adds to her beauty. Forward on the port side is a storage cabinet with a large countertop.
Saloon: From the cockpit you enter the saloon through a commercial grade, water tight Dutch door. Once you enter the saloon you get a feel for how spacious this boat is and you get a first glance of the gorgeous teak wood interior. On the starboard side you have a long settee with storage cabinets on either side and drawers underneath. On the port side is a large, comfortable L-shaped settee with a beautifully finished teak, high/low dining table in front. The interior has a sunny, warm feeling due to the large opening windows that provide great visibility and ventilation. Forward is the galley counter with a flat screen TV built in.
Galley: As you move forward from the saloon you enter a large U-shaped galley on the port side. The galley has plenty of counter space, with a large granite bar/breakfast counter on top and a Corian counter below. There are plenty of storage lockers and drawers throughout. The galley is equipped with the necessary appliances. The original refrigerator/freezer has been replaced with new stainless steel Vitrifrigo refrigerator. On the starboard side a stairway leads down to the owner stateroom and to the main access door of the engine room. Or, you can go up a few steps to the pilothouse.
Pilothouse: As you leave the galley you go up a couple of steps to the pilothouse. On the port side there is a small storage locker and a brand new, built in Vitrifrigo ice maker. The pilothouse on High Spirit is very spacious, with tremendous visibility. The reverse raked windows and the Portuguese bridge in front give Selene trawlers that old time salty look they are famous for. Aft is a large L-shaped settee and a custom teak table. A pilot berth is up and behind the settee. At the helm you have a comfortable Stidd chair with all electronics and engine controls easily accessible and visible right in front of you. You have easy access to the side decks and the Portuguese bridge through the watertight Dutch doors on either side. A companion way leads up to the flybridge and a stairway on the starboard side leads down to the cabins.
VIP Cabin: Going down the stairs from the pilot house on the starboard side you reach the lower level and then forward to the VIP cabin. This cabin is fit for any VIP with a large, walk-around bed on centerline, cedar lined hanging lockers and plenty of storage space throughout. This cabin also has lots of light and ventilation thanks to four opening port lights and an opening hatch overhead. Just outside the entry door on the starboard side is the head which is also shared with the second guest cabin. The head is spacious with a standup shower stall and a freshwater Tecma toilet.
Guest Cabin: Going aft from the VIP cabin on the port side is the second guest cabin which can also be used as a functional office. It has two stacked bunks – one athwartship and the other is positioned fore and aft. A built in desk and chair make it a nice work space. Two opening port lights provide light and ventilation to this cozy cabin.
Owner Stateroom: Going aft in the companionway landing you enter the spacious Owner Stateroom with its queen sized island berth easily accessible on both sides and built in nightstands. This cabin has a tremendous amount of storage space with hanging lockers and drawers throughout. The port side has a built in dresser with a large counter on top and two extra-large port lights providing light and ventilation. The head is on the starboard side, with granite tile floors, a spacious standup shower stall and a freshwater Tecma toilet. On the starboard side and aft you have a private stairway going up to the saloon and the main access door to the engine room.
Engine Room: The engine room is under the saloon and galley. It is accessible via watertight doors from the owner stateroom or from the lazarette. There is also a large hatch door in the saloon floor providing additional access. The engine room is very well organized, with all of the machinery easily accessible. The Cummins main engine and the Yanmar wing engine are easily serviceable from all sides. Northern Lights generator is aft inside of a sound enclosure. Dedicated Dual Racor fuel filters provide clean fuel to the main engine, wing engine and the generator. For an additional level of fuel filtration High Spirit is equipped with the ESI fuel polishing system. All of the start batteries and the tool chest are accessible on the port side. Going aft you can enter the lazarette through a small watertight door.
Lazarette: This area can be accessed from the engine room or from a large overhead hatch in the cockpit. The lazarette houses recently replaced, full sized clothes washer and dryer. This is also where the large Grunert freezer, Glendinning shore power cord retriever and the water maker are located. The Hurricane diesel hot water heating system is installed aft to starboard. There is lots of storage space including a small work area with a vise.
Flybridge: The flybridge is the place to be on this yacht. The visibility is unsurpassed and there is plenty of space to entertain your guests. The upper helm has all of the controls that you expect, including two helm chairs that are a pleasure to sit in. On the port side you have a comfortable L-shaped settee with a large table. The starboard side has storage cabinets, a large BBQ grill and a small sink.
Boat Deck: The boat deck aft has the RIB dinghy on the starboard side and an Aritex hydraulic davit used to deploy it. On the port side and forward are two large storage boxes. Upon deploying the dinghy, the boat deck on High Spirit opens up to a large space that can be used for entertaining guests or just enjoying the outside.
Foredeck: The foredeck is surrounded by stainless steel rails for on-deck safety. Ideal horizontal windlass is mounted with two anchors and assorted ground tackle available and at the ready. A large stainless-steel Sampson post is mounted aft of the windlass. The decking is Moon Dust Awlgrip non-skid. There are two separate very large chain lockers, large enough to store additional ground tackle or fenders. Forward shore power and chain wash down connections are easily accessible. Aft is a comfortable settee built into the Portuguese bridge.
