The 34' Odyssey construction follows the finest yacht standards. She is built of cold-molded, epoxy saturated African mahogany plywood that was custom made for us in Greece. The framing is African mahogany and clear fir. This construction method creates a light, fast boat that will be economical to run. The epoxy saturation technique, or WEST SYSTEMŽ, means less maintenance than a fiberglass hull. We selected a modified lobster boat hull form for both seaworthiness and speed. The shapely hull features a sharp entry, full flaring bow, and a varnished tumblehome transom.
A cutaway skeg and strut with airfoil sections deliver a smooth water flow to the prop. This efficient arrangement protects the prop from debris. To create a quiet boat, we selected an aft engine placement with a V-drive. Benefits include an excellent shaft angle, perfect balance, and top performance. Before starting construction, we built a 1/8 scale, radio-controlled model to test this new design, and tune the dynamic interaction of the prop, skeg, and rudder.
Paired with the deep airfoil rudder, the airfoil skeg produces a powerful turning moment at high speed, yet its area is just right to allow the boat to bank its turns. The boat tracks straight in all conditions. The long shallow skeg extending to the bow assists with low speed handling. Finally, the bow thruster allows you to dock and undock with ease. This single engined 34' design cruises at speeds from 20 to 30 knots. The hull is very stable, yet cuts through a sharp inshore chop quietly and smoothly.
