As a captain owned and operated, luxury charter vessel, Bella Luna has to be fully functional and ready to go at a moment’s notice. She is quite simply in pristine condition, she has to be to cater to a high-end, discriminating clientele. This requires a much more vigilant maintenance regimen than most recreational boater will commit to. One exemplary feature is the installation of fresh water flush connections for the main engine and generator so that they are purged of seawater after each use. There is a detailed maintenance log (hand written) available to review that notes all routine change out of zincs, belts, impellers, etc. Regular use and to appease charter clients a live-well bait tank was installed as well as other “crowd pleasing” niceties like underwater lights and other features that have enhanced the enjoyment for all passengers and guests. Overall cost for improvements totals nearly $100,000.00. The term “pride of ownership” is often overused, as is meticulously maintained, etc. Let’s just say once you get aboard Bella Luna you will be able to appreciate and see for yourself.
Bella Luna is a legendary Selene 55. She is famous in the Channel Islands/Oxnard, CA area for her active use as a luxury charter vessel that has proven to be a very popular and profitable business for her owner, a licensed captain. Serving in luxury charter (captained) she is regularly exercised and beautifully maintained. Her current (third) owner has enjoyed taking her out for personal use and on charter business and would now like to pursue other activities.
The interior on Bella Luna features varnished teak wood. This is an inviting, spacious and generous boat, inside and out. Improvements completed during the last four years of ownership are summarized later in this specification.
There are not many Selene 55’s that come on the market compared with numerous Selene 53’s. The Selene 55 is a much bigger boat despite the appearance in name showing only two feet in length difference. Bella Luna represents an opportunity to buy an extremely well maintained proven trawler that is “outfitted to the nines” and ready for adventurous cruising.
Bella Luna is LLC owned.
BELLA LUNA – HULL NUMBER 27
Bella Luna’s flag blue hull is simply gorgeous. Once you get aboard and walk her decks you will see how thoughtfully she has been created to make getting around in any kind of sea conditions a pleasure. Inside she benefits from the incredible craftsmanship that is a signature feature of the Selene brand. There is 6’7”+ headroom in most of the living spaces and great views out the windows and port lights.
For owners and guests there are three staterooms and a lot of common gathering spaces inside and on deck for socializing. She has an impressive air conditioning system that will keep everyone on board cool on a hot summer night.
Bella Luna is also designed to be single handed with bow and stern thrusters. She is extremely efficient and comfortable offshore with her Wesmar active fin stabilizers.
The peace of mind in purchasing an actively used trawler that has been operated by a licensed captain carries an immeasurable value that will make her new owners much more confided when they are ready to leave their marina and go out cruising.

You can board the Selene 55 from the extended swim platform or from the boarding doors fitted into each side deck. Bella Luna was ordered with double walking side decks to make docking and line handling simple in every marina you arrive.
The Dutch door entry into the saloon is lined with teak paneling on the interior and your first impression will be one of rich teak joinery and great visibility in the saloon. There are curtains and blinds on the outboard windows and the windows slide open for natural air flow. The starboard side features two comfortable soft chairs divided by a locker stand and large storage bureau forward that has a flat screen Samsung television mounted on top. The starboard forward cabinetry houses two Sub Zero refrigerator drawers and a Sub Zero hinged door refrigerator as well as a bank of drawers to fill up with belongings.
For display storage in the saloon there are two China cabinets with glass windows on the starboard side, one aft and another one forward.
The port side of the saloon features a built-in L– shaped settee with soft, blue Ultraleather seat cushions (with storage underneath) and a custom high-low teak table with burl wood inlays and folding leaves. The table is secured to the sole with a mounted sliding mechanism for easy adjustment. Forward of the seating area is a cabinet with a drawer and locker door to house the stereo equipment
The overhead panels are soft vinyl with wood battens giving a very nautical touch. The wood counter surfaces have solid teak grab rail trimming. The saloon sole is teak and spruce with a throw rug along centerline. The varnished teak wood interior creates a luxurious ambiance. There is a 10 speaker Bose entertainment system with sub-woofer. The overhead valences include rope lighting.
Below the entrance to the saloon is the commissary which is accessed by a sole hatch and is accessed via a small ladder. Inside the vinyl floored commissary there is a sea water cooled Grunert cold plate freezer. The inverter/battery charger is installed outboard to port. Storage lockers and bait system through hull as well as bait tank pumps are located in the starboard out board cabinet. Teak locker doors are louvered for air circulation and lockers have shelves for storage.
The saloon transitions into an efficient galley to port which is an ideal place to prepare meals. The granite galley counters are configured in a large U-shape which allowing plenty of surface area for cooking and serving. There is a dual basin stainless steel sink outboard (including a garbage disposal). One of the best features is the double pane sliding window outboard that affords an incredible view and also provides additional natural air circulation.
The Force 10 three burner propane cook top is centered forward and includes a tilt door oven. The microwave oven is encased above the stove. There are three banks of drawers for neatly organizing all of the necessary galley utensils. On the aft counter there is a double door locker with stainless shelves. Below the sink there is a double louvered locker door for bulk storage. The sole in the galley is also teak and spruce.
There are plenty of overhead and under counter lockers – all locker doors are louvered. There are plenty of drawers for storing everything you need in a seagoing galley. Forward lockers open up to slide out shelves. This is a working galley where two people can share the cooking chores working side by side.
Leaving the galley, you go forward up three steps to arrive in the pilothouse.
The Selene 55 wheelhouse is huge and the view is spectacular. There is an expansive navigation console with teak overhead panels and below window teak dash panels logically outfitted with all of the necessary control panels needed to operate Bella Luna. The Stidd helm chair provides a comfortable command perch in the center of the action. The overhead hatch lets in light and air and is fitted with a shade/screen. The windows and outboard Dutch Doors are all Diamond Sea Glaze commercial strength. These hinged doors leading out to the Portuguese bridge have teak panels to maintain the elegant feel.
A large L-shaped bench seat fronted by a beautiful teak table makes this location the perfect place for catching a bite to eat while enjoying the incredible panoramic view. The outboard seats have built in fold down drink holders and there are drawers and storage lockers under the seating area and foot landing. There is a sliding watch berth (extends over the aft steps for taller people to sleep) all the way aft and above the settee. The vertical face of the seating area includes the pull handle for the engine room fire suppression as well as a remote connector for the autopilot.
Outboard and aft to starboard is a companionway with wooden hand rail that is eight steps up to the flybridge (nice to be able to get to the flybridge from the interior - a real convenient benefit).
Sitting in the helm chair and facing forward you have a counter console to starboard with built in grab rails. This same counter has a slide out feature that extends over the forward stairs to serve as a chart table. The console has a drawer and storage locker as well as the controls for the Wesmar stabilizers within easy reach. There is a teak magazine/book rack outboard and below.
Looking forward, along the top overhead area there is safety panel to port, Simrad depth and wind displays on center and a clock and barometer to port as well an RCA television monitor.
On the dash counter level there is a large storage nook to port for keeping portable handhelds – charged by a duplex electric outlet. Next is an Icom VHF radio and Icom SSB radio. Two Simrad monitor displays divide the forward center area, topped by a Ritchie compass. To starboard is the Cummins Smart Craft engine display, the Simrad autopilot and the Sea Tel control panels as well as the Xantrex battery monitor control panel.
The horizontal portion of the dash has the Night vision (forward looking infrared) to port then a utility panel with the windlass toggle, wiper/washers, horn and exterior lights. To starboard is the Twin Disc single lever main engine control and the Side Power bow and stern thruster joystick controls.
Below the dash counter to port is the clear covered battery select switch locker, then the impressive AC and DC breaker panel (also clear covered) with select switches and digital read outs. Just outboard of centerline are the generator and inverter control panels as well as the windlass breaker, watermaker start panel and select switches for the inverter bypass and shore power boost transformer.
The helm dash features a large vertical 30” stainless steel destroyer steering wheel soft leather wrapped. Fronting the pilothouse is a Portuguese bridge deck from which you can go up to the foredeck or turn aft to return to the cockpit along either covered side deck.
To go to the staterooms, you descend the forward stairwell positioned to starboard to arrive at the lower level with immediate access to the staterooms, heads and engine room.
The nicely curved staircase forward that leads to a landing where you have the laundry appliances and easy access to the master and guest staterooms. This stairwell is guided by a curved solid teak handrail. This stairwell includes lockers outboard to starboard. The steps are grooved for better footing. Outboard to starboard near the lower level is the clothes washer and the clothes dryer is inboard across the landing at the base of the stairs.
The guest stateroom has two bunk beds outboard and two opening port lights. There is an overhead locker and a bed stand with drawers. A convenient burl wood desk counter connects with the forward bulkhead. The desk has drawers and a comfortable high back teak chair with seat cushion to sit in. This room is carpeted (covering more teak and spruce flooring) and there is a large hanging locker aft.
Across the hall on the starboard side is the shared guest head. The head is one step up (which carries this level forward) and includes a half mirror in the door. The freshwater Tecma head faces aft. The sink is outboard with a tilted mirror for shaving or putting on makeup. The sole is teak and spruce. There is a nice blend of teak and white gelcoat to make this an easy room to keep clean and maintain. There are two opening portlights, one in the head and the other aft in the shower. The shower has a bifold shower door, teak slats for sitting and a teak grid for sure footing.
The VIP stateroom is forward with a huge centerline island berth. The berth is surrounded with bed stand counters on both sides as well louvered lockers outboard and above the headboard. There are two voluminous hanging lockers. The Panasonic flat screen television is recessed into the port aft bulkhead for a clear view from the bed. There are opening port lights outboard to port and the VIP stateroom, like the rest of the living spaces, is comfortably air-conditioned. The sole is teak and spruce with carpeting on top. The overhead hatch has a shade/screen.
The master stateroom is ideally situated aft, below the pilothouse. The queen sized island berth is on centerline running fore / aft and is fitted with a custom memory foam mattress. There are opening portlights to port. The entire room is lined with beautiful teak paneling. To port is a bureau with a bank of drawers. The counter tops are burl wood. There are hanging lockers and the teak and spruce floor is carpeted. The master has its’ own head and shower ensuite. There is a television in the forward bulkhead. Aft and to starboard is the access to the engine room which is concealed behind a teak cabin door.
The master connects to an ensuite head to starboard. The shower includes a bifold shower door with teak slat seat and teak grid on the drain pan.This is a large head that features a Tecma fresh water toilet, sink and granite counter. There are mirrors, drawers, a medicine locker and plenty of room for his and hers toiletries.
The engine room is fronted by a thick, gasketed door with inspection window at eye level. The powerful Cummins QSL-9 primary engine is on centerline and surrounded with stainless steel railings. The Northern Lights 12kW generator sits behind the engine and is mounted athwartships. Diesel fuel plumbing manifolds for fuel return and fuel transfer are neatly arranged. There is also a Reverso oil change system installed. The forward outboard alcoves allow access to the active fin stabilizers. This engine room also includes a Fire Boy fire suppression system.
On the port side of the engine room forward is a ladder that connects to the galley offering an alternative access. The spaciousness in the engine room for getting around and observing the machinery provides the captain and crew with excellent access making this vital area of the boat extraordinarily easy to service and inspect.
Located beneath the aft deck cockpit, the lazarette is accessed via a deck hatch. The hydraulic steering is located aft and there is also an emergency tiller mounted. There are several through hulls – all easy to get to. Lifeline batteries, stern thruster, air conditioning and davit control motor are all neatly installed for secure operation. This lazarette is a working space that is easy to get around in and is nicely finished for a working area. The cockpit hatch access can be locked via a securing rod in the saloon to secure the area when the boat is left at the dock. One particularly fun feature is that there are four underwater lights!
Bella Luna has a wide swim platform behind the cockpit which serves as a nice landing dock for arriving by dinghy. There is a firm non-skid pattern in the step with stout U-rail supports and a built-in swim ladder making it a fun area when at anchor to jump in for a swim. This particular swim deck has seen some very impressive fish come aboard. The full width and sizeable length also make it a convenient way to board the boat via dock from either side. The swim step platform also includes a hot/cold freshwater shower for convenient rinsing after a swim.
Bella Luna is a “walk around” deck with both side decks covered allowing you to walk all around and forward to the foredeck. The cockpit is a popular place for relaxing. Forward there is a curved staircase outboard to port that ascends to the boat deck connected to a fiberglass storage locker with teak louvered doors. There is a teak table and four teak chairs for dining and relaxing - this cockpit is large enough to entertain and share a meal or enjoy cocktails. Access to the lazarette is provided by a huge hatch. You have access from the swim platform and there are boarding doors on both side decks for easy dock line handling. The cockpit area has an Isinglass / canvas enclosure that can be rolled up and out of the way, but makes for all season enjoyment. For fishing, there is a neatly plumbed live-well bait tank. Shore power connections in the transom. Beautiful teak strips continue along this entire deck level.
The Foredeck is entered through a hinged door from the Portuguese bridge. You have shore power connections up here and deck hatches which provide natural airflow into the forward stateroom and head. The ground tackle arrangement allows for two anchors and includes an electric horizontal windlass and is backed with a stainless steel Sampson post. At the forward face of the Portuguese bridge is a built in cushioned seating area with storage underneath. There are outboard docking stations with thrusters and engine control on both sides of the Portuguese bridge.
The boat deck is accessed outside by ascending the port side stairway from the cockpit or inside from the starboard side of the pilothouse. This incredibly large deck is directly over the saloon. There is an Aritex crane installed for launching and retrieving the dinghy (note: no dinghy is included). The stainless outboard railing is fenced with dark blue weather cloths. The stainless rails at the top of the cockpit stairs railing has a canvas with clear enclosure to prevent rain from getting into the cockpit. This is another popular location for guest to relax with the teak table and chairs. There is a propane Magma barbeque by the built-in in sink console located forward, outboard to starboard.
The view from the flybridge is spectacular and this is a wonderful place to operate the yacht. It also serves as a great place to relax and enjoy your anchorage. The fiberglass arch serves as the support base for nav/com antennas and connects to the Bimini. The canvas Bimini top has a stainless steel framework that folds providing shade for a sunny day or you can lay it down to drive “with the sunroof open”. There are two helm chairs forward of a fiberglass lunch table and the table has a built-in bench seating area behind it.

Bella Luna was purchased in December 2012 and the listing broker, owner and a professional captain brought her home from San Diego to Channels Islands Harbor before the end of the year. As a captain owned and operated luxury charter vessel, Bella Luna has to be fully functional and ready to go at a moment’s notice.

There is a detailed maintenance log (hand written) available to review that notes all routine change out of zincs, belts, impellers, etc. To appease charter clients a live-well bait tank was installed as well as other “crowd pleasing” niceties like underwater lights.
