General Details

"Songbird" presents an opportunity to own the popular 53 Selene that is turnkey and ready to cruise!   

This 2007 53' Selene Pilothouse Trawler has been well cared for by her first owner who also is an engineer.   This basically means that all systems have been carefully planned, installed, and more importantly maintained to a very high degree.  "Songbird" is a very well equipped 53' that is in "Like New" condition both inside and out.  She boasts an independent Yanmar wing engine with it's own shaft and folding prop.  Her outstanding equipment includes Wesmar stabilizers, HRO watermaker,  bow and stern thrusters, well thought out electronics & navigation systems and much more. 

"Songbird" is located in Seattle WA and is ready to be seen at a moment's notice.


She is priced to sell, ready to cruise and easily the nicest 53 on the used Selene market. 


  The salon is accessed off the large aft cockpit through a Diamond Sea Glaze dutch door.  Located to the port side of the salon is a large U-shaped leather settee with gorgeous solid teak "hide a leaf" table. This teak table expands in size and height for large entertaining.  The salon settee will convert into a berth if desired. Directly to starboard are a pair of custom barrel chairs with ottoman storage.

Selene Trawlers are well known for their impressive galley and this one stands out as one of the best that I have seen.  The granite is gorgeous and smartly has a teak sea rail on the lower level.  There is incredible storage and can handle daily meals while cruising or a large get together.

Pilot House
The Selene Trawler pilothouse is set up for safe comfortable passage making or a  short trip to the San Juan Islands.  The teak table is a handy place for a meal while underway and her raised L-shaped settee gives you excellent visibility for the captain and crew.   A strategically placed wireless Autopilot remote gives you control while at the settee.   "Songbird" also has a full compliment of Simrad electronics that are a solid basis for safe navigation.
