Electronics in the nav station include Icom SSB radio, VHF with AIS, AM/FM/CD player, Pactor modem, tri-data repeater, and ship's breaker panel.
Located to starboard at the base of the companionway, the galley is well-suited for meal preparation while at anchor or underway.

The port settee is straight and sleeps one. Behind the nav station is a pilot berth that sleeps one. All settees and quarterberth are at least 6'4" long. All cushions were reupholstered between 2008-2015 and are in excellent condition.
The ship's head is located to starboard, just forward of the main salon. There is a stainless-steel sink with hot and cold pressurized water, as well as a vanity with mirror.

Two fiberglass gelcoated water tanks hold approximately 85 gallons of water. Newer faucets in both galley and head. There is a 6-gallon 110-V water heater, which is also plumbed to the engine to allow for hot water while underway. There are both manual and electric bilge pumps, and bronze through-hulls with seacocks.
An upgraded new Yanmar 4JH3E (56hp) was added approximately 10 years ago. At the time the new engine was added, the soundproofing insulation in the engine compartment was replaced, as well as the Vetus waterlift muffler. Also added at this time were a new stainless steel driveshaft, new 3-blade bronze propeller, new cutless bearing and new through-hull intake with sea strainer.

Odessa underwent a major refit between 2010 and 2015. There are very few items that date older than that. The dodger was built 2015, all the ground tackle replaced 2014, Raymarine electronics, autopilot, cushions, lee cloth, refrigerator, water heater, high end Mastervolt charger and Mastervolt AGM batteries. Engine is a real power house and is also like new. Cutlass bearing, shaft and prop new 2010. So are AB hard bottom dinghy, Nissan motor, mast steps etc., etc. A special mention deserves the custom built arch. It is very substantial and accommodates the best lightweight solar panels with an award-winning German wind turbine that keep Odessa energy independent underway. The arch also accommodates the dinghy, and motor and provides a lot of safety in the cockpit. Odessa was a fresh water boat 2000-2015. In 2015 owners took her on a 6 month coastal cruise up and down the East Coast. And now with the new family addition and subsequent change of plans they have to put Odessa up for sale. She has been lovingly cared for all these years and she hopes to find a new caring owner.
