The Golden Odyssey is designed to bring classic 5-star yacht quality to the European waters. Newly rebuilt with the finest materials to the highest international yacht Standards, Golden Odyssey marks a departure from the usual barge cruise experience. Originally names Drie Gezusters (Three Sisters), and launched in 1926 for a Dutch captain with three daughters, Golden Odyssey spent her working life carrying cargo to all part of Europe. At what seemed like the end of her career she was bought by a yachtsman who admired her fine lines and high quality construction. The painstaking conversion that followed was guided by the twin watchwords of quality and taste. Thus the reborn barge yacht has conserved her lines, but all else in new.
While many guests will simply overlook the main engine and associated systems, for others it is the subject of deep appreciation. Industry diesel motors are legendary among older generations of barge captains and the Golden Odyssey’s has been totally re-built to ensure that she still benefits from the technology developed later on. As to the other systems, it will take a more dedicated engineer to maintain his interest, but trust us when we say that the ship has been completely remodeled to maintain its historic relevance as well as maintain the significance of its part and history of shipbuilding.
