Superyacht ‘Golden Odyssey’ is Renamed‘Golden Odyssey II’ Following Refit

  • Share via Email

By Editorial Team   24 February 2015

The 80m superyacht ‘Golden Odyssey’ has left Blohm & Voss’s Hamburg shipyard following a 5-month refit, and has been renamed ‘Golden Odyssey II,’ and will rename in the global charter fleet. It has been speculated this rename will lead the way for a brand new Blohm & Voss build which will claim the name Golden Odyssey.

Originally delivered by the esteemed German shipyard in 1990, Golden Odyssey II has chartered extensively across the globe alongside 67m sistership M/Y ‘Golden Shadow.’ Her refit has involved the servicing of her engineering and technology, and the fitting of new teak decks and a new spa bath.

Her state-of-the-amenities, including a two-level coral-reef aquarium, steam room and sauna, swimming pool and beauty salon make her the complete charter package. Her glass-bottomed swimming pool offers a truly unique experience, with views into the exotic marine life inhabiting the aquarium. One of the earlier vessels to incorporate eco-friendly technology, she features an impressive exhaust gas release under water, which ensures no exhaust gases are released into the air.

Motor yacht Golden Odyssey II comfortably accommodates up to 14 guests in 7 staterooms, including a master suite, two double staterooms, 6 twin cabins and two single cabins. Her timeless Alberto Pinto interior is classic in style, featuring fine wood cabinetry throughout and a grand piano in her main salon. Her experienced crew of 25 work alongside a Captain of 5 years cater to guest’s every need.

She boasts an impressive top speed of 18 knots, and cruises at 16 knots, with a range of 9100.00nm from her 220,000.00L fuel tanks.

For more details about planning a charter vacation on board M/Y Golden Odyssey II, contact your preferred charter broker .

123m Golden Odyssey sold at auction following arrest

Deutsche bank luxembourg arrested the yacht in malta due to outstanding debt in excess of €116 million….

Image for article 123m Golden Odyssey sold at auction following arrest

The 123m Lürssen superyacht ‘Golden Odyssey'   has been sold at auction for an estimated €150 million in Malta. Deutsche Bank Luxembourg arrested the superyacht while it was moored in the Med as a way to enforce the mortgage against it for outstanding debt in excess of €116 million.

According to Times of Malta , the owner, Kal Marine Limited (A Bermuda-based company), originally secured a loan from the bank in 2013, and used the superyacht as collateral. After failing to make repayments and choosing to ignore calls, the bank decided to seize the yacht.

The article also highlights that Mr Justice Spiteri Bailey approved the private sale of the superyacht for the sum of €150 million - which was deemed to be the current market value. The yacht has apparently been bought by East Thrive Peace Limited, a company which is incorporated in the British Virgin Islands and will be represented in Malta by lawyer Nicholas Valenzia.

golden odyssey yacht wikipedia

It is believed that this could be one of the highest prices ever fetched for a superyacht sold in a judicial sale ever. The Golden Odyssey is ranked as the world’s 36th-largest superyacht and was launched by German shipbuilders Lürssen in 2015.

In 2016, SuperyachtNews reported that the 123m Golden Odyssey is part of The Golden Fleet which also comprises of its support vessel, 67m M/Y Golden Shadow and 30m M/Y Golden Osprey. This fleet was used as a platform for the Living Oceans Foundation, which was founded by Prince Khaled bin Sultan. In 2012, the Prince was awarded the Perseus Award for his commitment to ocean conservation and scientific research.

In 2018, Captain Mike Hitch, the marine director for the Golden Fleet and Captain of M/Y Golden Odyssey, spoke to SuperyachtNews about the organisation and the role of crew in environmental initiatives.

The Holy Thief

golden odyssey yacht wikipedia

Captain Alexei Korolev of the Criminal Investigation Division of the Moscow Militia, is asked to investigate. But when he discovers that the victim is an American citizen, the NKVD – the most feared organisation in Russia – becomes involved.

As more bodies are discovered and the pressure from above builds, Korolev begins to question who he can trust; and who, in this Russia where fear, uncertainty and hunger prevails, are the real criminals. Soon, Korolev will find not only his moral and political ideals threatened, but also his life . . .
