In my experience, once a boat is thoroughly cleaned and rid of mildew (use bleach!), any remaining odors are generally from the bilge or the heads. We've had good results in the bilge with enzyme based bilge cleaners that eat oil & sludge. The head often requires replacement of old hoses which can become permeable to odors. Not a fun job but can improve life aboard dramatically!
