Last year when new boat shopping odors were high on the list of boats to question. On a newer Selene a leak in the holding taking fittings were found. On a Nordhavn 62 a bad exhaust vent on a diesel heater appeared. Whether new or old some odors can be traced to original build defects, especially water leaks that never show up until a panel is pulled off.

Best to track down the reason for the smell if you choose to some day sell your vessel.

I have a Quantum Panda Ozone generator I bought in 2005, they were being talked about a lot for odor control. I used to leave it on at 1/2 power when the boat was at the dock. I never did notice any damage at all to surrounding material from the unit, but I never thought it was very effective at "destroying odors" either so a couple of years took it out.
