Hi sailors!

Does anyone have experience with the Calypso 42? Beautiful boat, but how is the sailing performance? How does it behave in calm/tough sea? Little/strong wind?

Can only find 2 Calypsos, a 42 and 44, the 42 in the UK. That the one?

Looks like a semi custom build, in steel - issues there with upkeep and initial survey/inspection. Suggest you get a steel-savvy surveyor.

If built in the Netherlands they have a good rep for steel construction. I'd expect her to be solid, not terribly quick, but likely seaworthy.

Built in the 60s, if she's really still worth $100K GBP she must be something special.
