34' Odyssey
Interior photos of this custom pilothouse cruiser.

Interior photos of the Odyssey "Admiral Phormio."

Some of these photos were taken during early sea trials, while trim and finishes were incomplete.

Looking forward from the pilothouse doorway. Corian topped galley to starboard, dinette to port. The forecabin is just visible, down two steps.

The galley features a two burner propane stove with oven, hot and cold pressure water, and lots of storage.

The dinette as seen from the helm station. The forward dinette seatback pivots. In its pictured position, all passengers face forward. With the seatback in the forward position, all passengers face the dinette table. The series of large drawers beneath the dinette are great galley and miscellaneous storage.

A detail of the above photo, after varnishing. The dinette seat back can be removed and placed between the seat and the ledge on the bulkhead, allowing the dinette to make into a double berth.

The dinette table also doubles as the cockpit table. Through the aft window we see the cabin door, latched back against the bulkhead.

Looking forward we see that visibility from the dinette is excellent because it is raised up above the pilothouse sole.

The helm station is ergonomic and has great visibility. The seat bottom flips up so that the station is equally comfortable while standing.

The helm console seen from aft. The client desired a traditional appearance.

The chartplotter slides out of a hidden pocket.

Likewise, the electrical panel is hidden behind a panel door.

Stepping down into the forecabin, its sole is also laid teak and holly. The head door is to port; a hanging locker is opposite to starboard. The head door doubles as the forecabin door. A filler cushion makes the V-berth into a double.

Looking to port in the head. The bulkheads are paneled in Khaya, African mahogany. The boxwork in the center of the photo ducts warm air into the head and into the windscreen defroster system. The hull framing, and first layer of cold-molded diagonal planking is visible below the cabin side.

A closer view of the ductwork and hull and deck framing in the head compartment.

The head counter is Corian, matching the galley. A hatch in the countertop conceals divided storage for toiletries.

Another view in the head compartment.

The forecabin, complete with dinghy oars. The little compartments on either side of the berth offer storage and a shelf for small items.
