SUCCESSFUL PARTICIPATION IN BOOT DÜSSELDORF
Boot Düsseldorf is the largest indoor yacht exhibition in Europe. As a major brand, Selene Yachts was, of course, present at this year’s show. We had an eye-catching stand in the Superyacht Hall, where all European dealers were represented. The yard was in contact with many interested parties during the show, which has already resulted in the sale of a beautiful Selene 60 from 2009. In addition, various negotiations are ongoing for possible orders for new builds. Despite the difficult economic times, the Selene Yachts Europe sales team returned home from Düsseldorf in an upbeat frame of mind.

SAR Spotlight Issue 3 Due to Publish

SARSO3

Issue Three of SAR Spotlight is due to publish shortly. This free download eMagazine is expected to publish during the next ten days.

This issue looks at RNLI beach-launched all-weather lifeboats and the introduction of the first of some 50 Shannon Class boats. The exciting Shannon Class introduces new levels of safety and comfort for crew and survivors and will deliver on the RNLI ambition to operate all-weather lifeboat classes that are all capable of 25 knots, a 50% increase in speed over earlier boats. This new class will initially be issued to RNLI stations that launch their lifeboats over open beaches in all weathers. The class will also be issued in due course to those stations that operate afloat from harbours and launch down steep slipways from lifeboat stations built into cliffs and piers.
