SuperYacht of the week: A wonderful Odyssey by Rodriquez Yachts

SuperYacht of the Week

Odyssey is the 38 meter 2008 concept of Rodriquez Yachts (Rodriquez), the design and production unit of superyachts for Rodriquez Cantieri Navali. Delivered last spring, Odyssey is the newest model, the Rodriquez 38 WB, crafted by Rodriquez. The Rodriquez 38 WB model is a wide-body vessel with a full-beam main deck. When compared to similar lengths and traditional layouts, her design favors comfort and spacious habitability thanks to wider internal spaces.

Odyssey has a full-displacement aluminum hull, Rodriquez Marine System stabilizers (zero speed), and luxurious accommodations for up to 11 guests, accommodated in 5 cabins. Propelled by two Caterpillar C32 ACERT engines, producing a total of 2600 kW at 2300 rpm, this superyacht has a maximum speed of 19 knots, with a sustainable cruising speed of 17 knots. Her range, at an economical cruising speed of 13 knots, is a respectable 1000 nautical miles. The electrical systems are powered by two Kohler 55 KW 380 VAC 50 Hz diesel generators. Additional Odyssey specifications include: onboard storage capacity of 8,500 liters of potable water, a water maker able to produce 5,000 liters per day, and a 328,000 BTU air conditioning system.

Onboard comfort is assured not only by the distinctive interior design but also by stabilizers engineered by Rodriquez Marine Systems. Rodriquez Marine Systems specializes in the development and production of integrated stabilizer and control systems. The stabilizers, combined with hull form, including the large bulbous bow, drastically reduce her potential to roll by automatically adapting to the surroundings. With her modern technology, lines, and furnishings, Odyssey is a truly unique and pleasurable superyacht experience.

When first stepping on board Odyssey’s main deck and into a large yet intimate aft cockpit, her modern elegance can only begin to be appreciated. The cockpit is styled with an oval teak table capable of seating ten people that is flanked by a white leather sofa and five white leather chairs.

Moving forward, there is a large sliding tempered glass door, with polished steel jambs, that leads into the main deck’s full-beam salon. The outstanding feature of this large convivial salon is the luster created by parquet flooring, bleached oak furniture, wenge-colored finishings, and the use of light lacquer and polished steel inserts. Similar in style is the light leather L-shaped sofa in the center of the salon. The salon exudes elegance with minimalistic style, complimented with some special owner-selected design objects.

Forward from the salon there are two corridors. The starboard side corridor leads to the owner’s stateroom while the port side corridor leads to the main dining room, furnished with a wenge-colored table, chairs made of enameled white wire rods, and owner-selected artwork. Forward of the dining room is the fully-equipped main galley, fitted with the latest professional electrical appliances. The Fore Deck allows for sun bathing for as many as four guests comfortably.

The owner’s stateroom resembles a modern five-star hotel suite, with two walk-in closets, a king-size bed, additional storage under the bed, vanity with chair, a refrigerator, dedicated hi-fi system, and an LED screen that folds into a hidden cabinet next to the two symmetrical staircases leading to the oversized walk-in shower and bath.

The upper deck is the area for relaxation and alfresco dining. With thoughts of a private grand terrace overlooking the sea, here there is a table that seats six people comfortably and four sun beds. This outdoor area is accessible from the glass doors of the large panoramic study and salon. Forward of the study/salon is the captain’s cabin and helm station, an attached apt galley, as well as the quarters for as many as six crew members, are located here. On the flybridge, there is a second helm station, next to which there is a large sunbathing area with a circular and calming Jacuzzi hot tub and ample room for guests. Nothing has been left to chance on the Odyssey.

Guests are accommodated in the four guest cabins located on the lower deck, each having their own bath and shower, large screen television, and hi-fi system. The two VIP guest cabins are fitted with a double bed and beside cabinets, closet space, and drawers under the bed. The remaining two guest cabins are fitted with single beds and also have beside cabinets, closet space, and drawers under the bed. One of the single beds cabins has an additional Pullman berth.

Odyssey is currently being offered for sale at an asking price of € 13.000.000. For further information, please contact her broker Floating Life International S.A. at [email protected] /
