New Model: Jet Tern Selene 60 Ocean Explorer

Jet Tern present the brand new Selene 60 Ocean Explorer, the smallest explorer yacht in the explorer line. At first look, the Selene 60 Ocean Explorer by Guido de Groot shows a number of the family traits with her powerful raised pilothouse, Portuguese bridge, and bulbous bow. But a contemporary twist is also apparent in the addition of the large side windows in the hull. She is sure to appeal to existing owners and boat enthusiasts alike and takes the simple and proven concept of the fuel efficient and seaworthy long range explorer yacht to a new level of luxury that is intended to compete directly with the finest European yards but with all of the advantages of fiberglass construction. The Selene 60 Ocean Explorer has a brand new styling profile and a layout that contains three luxury staterooms and three, or two bathrooms choice. Although the yacht can easily be operated by the owner, it has a comfortable crew quarter aft with full head for a captain or steward, which can also double as a fourth cabin. Twin or single Cummins or John Deere engines are available for the propulsion system. The interior design will be contemporary, similar to the Selene 92 and 72. The Selene also offers unique versatility in the three deck versions to choose; Full Wide Body, Port Side Wide Body, and Standard Two Side Decks.

Project: Sanlorenzo SL96 Asymetric

Sanlorenzo present the project for the SL96 Asymmetric with exteriors and layout designed by Bernardo Zuccon, and interiors by Laura Sessa. The design consolidates the direction taken in 2018 with the presentation of the SL102 Asymmetric, which the company calls the world’s first asymmetrical yacht, and showcases Sanlorenzo's ability to work with the concept of space, reinterpreting it from alternative perspectives and exploring different ways to exploit it. SL96 Asymmetric is born of this approach, with a side deck on the starboard side, but not the port, because it has been moved up to the roof of the superstructure in order to free up a large surface area for the interiors and offer more space, light, relaxation and flexibility of use.  The concept of asymmetry springs from a meeting of different minds and creative approaches. Car designer Chris Bangle’s brilliant original idea has been developed by Bernardo Zuccon with the shipyard’s engineers and designers.  Possibly in this kind of design of present modern Italian motor yacht the SL102 Asymmetric is the first of its kind, but certainly this concept has been used in the past by other American and Asian build motor yachts.  Still Sanlorenzo gives it a new spin thanks to a lower bulkhead which increases light and views to the dining area.
