Calypso 28ft

Launched in 1973 the Calypso had a narrower, 10ft 9in beam than her larger sisters. Other differences included the unique cabin structure with quite a different appearance and angled aft and forward cabin slopes. At the rear was a sliding transom door and forward were steps up out onto a higher than normal forward well.

The cabin top was a 70s turquoise colour and versions were built as 2/3 berths, although some operators ran 2/4 berth with the forward settee or dinette converting to a single or double berth.

At the London Boat Show, 1973

Two forward saloon versions were available. The dinette, seen here could sleep up to four, with the dinette converting to a double

The most popular saloon version was as seen here, with a settee/single berth, sometimes pulling out into a second double
