Benetti classic yacht Il Odyssey sold
by Malcolm Maclean
The 32.84 metre motor yacht Il Odyssey, listed for sale by Jan Jaap Minnema at Fraser Yachts, has been sold with Darren Cooper at Finest Yachts introducing the buyer.
Built in steel and aluminium by Italian yard Benetti to Bureau Veritas class, she was delivered in 1967 as a very pretty example of the yard’s classic canoe sterned motor yachts and regularly upgraded and refitted, most recently in 2005 when she was made MCA compliant.
Accommodation is for up to nine guests in four cabins consisting of a full beam master suite forward, a VIP suite and two twins along with a Pullman berth. All cabins have entertainment centres, flat screen television sets and en suite bathroom facilities. In addition, there are quarters for seven crew in four en suite cabins.
An interior by Liz Downes in satin finished mahogany contrasting with beige coloured soft furnishings lends her expansive main saloon the air of a gentleman’s club with large windows to port and starboard, an entertainment centre including a 42 inch flat screen television and a dining area forward with seating for 10 guests.
Outdoors, recently refreshed teak deck areas play host to a variety of activities including cocktails and meals on the large aft deck with relaxation and sunbathing always available on the sun deck. Twin 750hp Detroit Diesel engines give her a range of 2,600 nautical miles at her cruising speed of 10 knots.
Lying in Palma, Spain, Il Odyssey was asking €1,250,000.
