Improve-it = Jet Tern Selene 36

Exciting news from the continuous design improvement at Jet-Tern Marine. A new cruiser stern has been added on Selene 36 model. Selene-3631 is the second boat fitted with this new stern design with the first one already being delivered to a Russian customer in early 2009. Selene 3631 was tested at a marina nearby Jet Tern Marine’s Dong Guan shipyard. From these water tests the cruiser stern increases the water line length therefore improving the boat trim by locating the additional ballast to the far end. Other benefits include larger wet area storage and better manoeuvring at the quarter wave and an overall increase in the boat’s displacement. These subtle improvements will ultimately enhance Selene 36/40’s offshore cruising performance. A larger rudder has also been designed for this new boat providing better tracking course through the water due to the larger wet surface area.
