General Description

Equipped with a Seakeeper 3 gyro stabilizer! The Selene 42 Europa is designed for long range coastal cruising in style and extended sea voyages with not less than a 1,000 NM range at 9 knots. The vessel accommodates four to six passengers in two cabins and one head with a separate shower. It sports all the features of a luxury family yacht with a generator, climate control and a large flybridge, but with elegance, simplicity and easy maintenance for the owner-operator. The 42' Europa is a full-displacement hull, truly a Gentlemen's Cruising Yacht with a large flybridge that is easily accessed with integrated fiberglass stairs from the aft-deck. The bridge deck extension overlaps the aft-deck and the side-decks well forward, leaving plenty of room for entertaining guest. There is comfortable bench and dinette for four abaft the twin helm chairs, and outdoor locker opposite.

The yacht's interior is flawlessly fitted in hand-selected straight grain light teak, which integrates well with the granite galley countertops and designer fabrics throughout. The two-stateroom One Head layout has beautiful teak interior and a well-equipped galley.



From the aft deck a Diamond Sea-Glaze Dutch door opens directly into the salon. There is an L-shaped settee to starboard with a hidden leaf table capable of entertaining six for meals. To port is a built-in cabinet and two upholstered barrel chairs separated by a tasteful small cabinet. Ottomans with storage fit neatly beneath each chair.

LED overhead lights are ample throughout the boat.

Teak and holly soles are standard throughout the entire vessel. Importantly, the salon/galley sole is level with the aft deck which eliminates steps commonly found in other vessels. In addition, these features welcome the owner's party:

In the cockpit, which is fully protected by the bridge deck overhead, there is plenty of room to relax on chairs and to set up for entertaining. The Euro design enables a cockpit comparable in size to the Selene 55.

A gracious curved staircase provides safe, convenient access to the bridge and boat deck topside.
