At the end of week 10, on a bright sunny morning in Genoa, the main mast for Odyssey was lifted from the yard’s construction hangar and lifted into place on the forward section of Deck 11.
Following its construction, then fabrication survey, the mast was moved to a construction hall were it was chemically cleaned to prepare the surface prior to painting. Once painting was complete, the navigation lights, antennas and radars were fitted. The impressive structure now towers over the deck. See the first picture below. The equipment on the mast aids us in our safe navigation by providing signal information to other vessels around us and allows us to see vessels as “targets” on our radars. The vessel’s fully integrated navigational suite is provided by SAM Electronics GmbH.
The second picture shows Seabourn’s vice president of fleet operations, Larry Rapp, standing beside the mast to give you an idea of the size.
