Built in steel and aluminium by Italian yard Benetti, Odyssey III was delivered in 1967 and is a fine example of the yard’s classic canoe-sterned motor yachts. She has been regularly upgraded and refitted throughout her life, notably in 2005 when she was made MCA compliant. In 2018, she then underwent an extensive two-year rebuild at Pendennis Shipyard.
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.
The space is flooded with light thanks to large windows to port and starboard, and the space further benefits from 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 can 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.
Odyssey III is now asking £5,850,000.
