LAVRANOS 56 – SEA ANGEL, 2004
The design brief for Odysseus was a seaworthy offshore yacht that was sporty, easy and fun to sail, provided an environment that facilitated companionship with crew and guests and was comfortable for extended cruising. It had to have plenty of storage so that there was no need to have cruising gear lashed on the deck, or salty damp articles stored in the cabins. It was important that the yacht was uncluttered and looked purposeful.
This was achieved after the 18 months project, carefully supervised by her owner, resulting in a boat of integrity that will serve all who sails her for many years. She has circumnavigated the globe in style and is ready to go again. Click here to read more
