Odisea Yachts chooses iYacht GmbH

as design & engineering partner for the new ODC55

Udo Hafner, CEO of the German design & engineering firm, states:


We are really satisfied with this new collaboration. The team at Odisea Yachts is eager to explore fresh concepts and integrate state-of-the-art design and engineering that we bring to the table. Relying on their building capabilities and having minimal constraints are the best possible conditions. Starting from scratch, we aim to deliver optimal solutions for developing an exceptional 55ft catamaran.
We were impressed with Odisea Yachts’ setup and resources, especially considering they are a newcomer; they have a strong team to rely on. I’m confident that this project holds tremendous potential for growth.”


With two decades of experience and over 400 successful projects, iYacht GmbH has established itself as one of the major go-to studios for catamaran design. The studio’s competencies and expertise in the multihull field have led it to collaborate with renowned brands like Alva Yachts, Bavaria Yachts/Nautitech Catamaran, and Slyder Catamarans.


In addition to their expertise in serial production, iYacht GmbH has extensive capabilities in designing and engineering custom yachts, including a 55ft and a 100ft aluminum catamaran currently under construction.


Hafner also recognized and appreciated Odisea Yachts’ global vision and strategic presence, with key team members located in the United States, the UK, Greece, and in their yard in Asia. This approach aligns perfectly with the goal of delivering a performance catamaran suitable for worldwide exploration.


David Aguilera Martin, CEO of Odisea Catamarans noted:


As we continue to grow at an extraordinary rate, forging new relationships is essential to our mission of designing the best vessels for our customers. Our collaboration with iYacht represents a significant step in this journey. Odisea’s excellence in aluminum yacht construction, combined with iYacht’s expertise and dedication in catamaran design, allows us to create a unique product that we feel will be welcomed in the market. 




This partnership blends our shared passion for innovation and high standards of quality, ensuring every journey is both extraordinary and memorable. Together, we are committed to pushing the boundaries of design and performance in the yachting industry, seamlessly integrating luxury and adventure.


Odisea’s design team has completed the initial design studies for the ODC55.
iYacht, the Hamburg and Kiel-based company will be responsible for enhancements to the exterior design of the ODC55, the naval architecture, and the detailed engineering of the boat and its components to make it suitable for production. Additionally, an accurate study of the ergonomics and interior layout will be carried out.


Currently, the yard is constructing six units of the ODC48. Once the design and engineering of the new ODC55 are completed, this model will also enter production.
