The Half Hull of Calypso Has Been Sold. Thank You!

compositenew.jpg

 Vintage Builder's Tank Test Model of 1965 Aluminum
Motor Yacht Calypso. Deisgned by Daniel McCarthy
 
 
This is the original builder's Tank Test model of a custom yacht named Calypso that was designed and built in 1965 for a yachtsman for ocean cruising. Models such as this are very rare in the market place, and are very expensive to build. This one with her pronounced shearline, graceful flared bow and curved transom is a magnificent work of design, and model maker's craftsmanship. The aged patina of her varnish is particularly appealing, and the designer's notations penned inside the hull add a touch authenticity.
 
MODEL DIMENSIONS: Length Overall 55", Beam 13",
                                           Draft 3 1/4"              Weight 10 lbs.
