The interior is carpeted, with comfortable seating in stylish upholstery.  The vessel offers spacious lounge areas and viewing decks over 2 levels.  Facilities include a fully equipped galley, fully stocked bar, stereo, PA system and two bathrooms.    On all charters the vessel is operated by professional and qualified crew including skipper, deckhand, bar staff and catering staff.    MV Odyssea is based in the Picton Marina cruising the Queen Charlotte Sound.
