2005 Selene Selene 40

Demopolis AL, US




Cot’n Top is a twice-proven Great Looper. Clean and well maintained. Owner is moving ashore, leaving her well-equipped, well-supplied, and ready to cruise for many more seasons.

The two-cabin, two-head layout provides comfort and privacy for the owner and the guest party. A huge bridge welcomes everyone to a 360 view from the L-shaped settee, and two helm chairs for the captain and mate.

With a Length Overall of 45′, she is the biggest and roomiest "42" in the world. The engine room with its 300 h.p. John Deer diesel offersan  amazing 5’6" headroom, as close to standing room as a vessel this size can afford. Reverse cycle air conditioning brings comfort year round.  A u-shaped settee in the salon is the dining and entertaining center. An oversized refrigerator/freezer supports extended cruising.

A wealth of additional descriptive information, photo gallery, CAD drawings of all systems as built are available immediately on request.

Cot’n Top is now resting for the winter in Demopolis, AL, in the water, under cover, and available for inspection. Just a little over an hour from the airport in Birmingham.
