Charter yacht of the month – ODYSSEA

Built by the celebrated Heesen yard, the custom 47m ODYSSEA was created in anticipation of exciting adventures as a true family yacht, providing an outstanding combination of performance, efficiency and luxury.  

Launched in 2012, this stunning yacht has a displacement steel hull and aluminium superstructure with exterior styling by Frank Laupman at Omega Architects. Equipped with ultra-modern Naiad Dynamics 2 fin type 575 zero speed stabilization system, roll motion effect is reduced, resulting in a smoother cruising experience underway for guests.

Powered by 2 x MTU 8V4000 M63 2 х 1000 kW engines, and driven by shaft drives, ODYSSEA is capable of a top speed of 15 knots while cruising in comfort at 12 knots, plus the bulbous shape of her bow allows the vessel to require less fuel to arrive at any given speed. With her 60,000 litres fuel tanks she has a maximum range of 4,000 nautical miles at economic cruising speed and her water tanks carry 20,000 litres of fresh water. She was constructed to Lloyd’s 100A1 SSC YACHT [X] LMC Large Commercial Yacht Code LY2 classification society rules.

Her layout allows for large amounts of space to be maximised, both internally and externally.  ODYSSEA’s luxurious interior was designed by the renowned house of Bannenberg & Rowell, with a total of 240m2 divided over three levels delivering a sophisticated and welcoming decor throughout. The family-friendly feel on board is instantly apparent on the main aft deck, offering a stylish and vast lounging area with sensational panoramic views thanks to minimalistic pillars supporting the large awning. The main salon and dining area also display comfortable urban styling, with contemporary design, smart fittings, and soft furnishings in a well-balanced palette of soft colours. Whether for an informal lunchtime gathering or a chic cocktail evening, the ambience here transforms effortlessly from day to night.

Forward on the main deck, instead of the traditional location for a master stateroom, this area offers a superb full-beam cinema and games room complete with audio-visual equipment and variety of seating. A hotspot for movie nights, this is a highly popular family space with all charter guests. In addition, there is also a comfortable twin stateroom on the main deck.

Boasting six expansive staterooms for twelve guests on ODYSSEA, the lower deck is home to the oversized double and spacious VIP, a second oversized double and two twin staterooms, all with timeless styling and excellent amenities. The impressive master suite is ingeniously sited aft on the upper deck. With large windows and glass doors onto the aft deck allowing the natural light to flood in, this leads to a large al fresco dining area on the private master terrace with adjacent sun pads plus an additional circular breakfast room. Up to the fabulous sun deck, this measures an impressive 85m2 with a Jacuzzi forward, a semi-enclosed full bar and dining zone plus aft lounge area which is often reconfigured as a workout/ exercise space. Optional bimini shades can be fixed forward and aft as required. 

With a vast array of water toys stowed in the tender garage, the superb beach club, complete with swim platform, makes access to the water a breeze. An active and exciting watersports program, with a big focus on kitesurfing, awaits charter guests seeking fun on an idyllic getaway. Take advantage of the fabulous 37-foot Invincible Cat with 4 x 350hp Mercury outboards, that can reach an exhilarating top speed of 70 knots.  In addition, for all fishing enthusiasts, this is indeed a sport the crew and yacht specialise in. Whilst on board ODYSSEA, her experienced and professional crew of nine will provide a high level of attentive service and ensure that every need is catered for.

With an exceptional range of leisure and entertainment facilities, combined with a fabulously versatile array of spaces for socialising and entertaining, ODYSSEA is a family-friendly and stylish superyacht ideal for cruising the beautiful waters of the Caribbean and Bahamas.
