Broker's Comments

I am so very pleased to be able to offer what has to be one of the best Calypso 28 boats afloat. This boat is genuinely stunning to be aboard as she has been fully refurbished from stem to stern to a very comprehensive and high standard of workmanship and equipment throughout. This is not a surface- only refurb which is skin deep either; The refurb goes to the heart of the boat with almost every system having recieved attention. From her full re-wire for both 12Volt and 240V shore power to the new electric toilet system, battery managment / charging system, to deck lighting, and anchor winch etc. The list just goes on and on! Mechanically she has also recieved incredible attention too, so she really is a stunning and ready to go boat that will not disappoint on any level.
Her BSS runs to 2nd August 2024!

Her quality refit is evident everywhere you look the moment you approach the boat, and she stands out immediately. From her stylish and well thought out galley to the very large aft cabin with en-suite heads and shower, and striking navy blue hull, she is every inch an attractive place to spend time.

She also benefits from full warm air Eberspacher heating throughout, making her an all year cruiser or ideal liveaboard.

The Calypso model is well respected for its accommodation space and its useful fore and aft deck areas, and these outside areas have not been ignored during the refit.

Well fitting lockable deck hatches to the engine and gas lockers as well as other external storage spaces have all received additional attention to ensure a much more rainwater-tight and generally secure nature of the deck space. The benefit of this set up is no more evident of the level of work that has been done in this area than when you view the engine space which is amazingly dry and clean.
The lavish attention expended on the deck assess areas really add to the security and solid quality feel of the boat with no flexing of the decks underfoot.
Blue accent lighting has been fitted to both fore and aft deck areas which gives her a stunning night-time ambiance.
Additional external additions to the standard boat are the well crafted aft pushpit rails that are high quality stanless steel. A similar highly engineered and quality bespoke stainless steel folding step offers access through the aft rails, giving safe and secure boarding and egress, yet easily folds out of the way when not required.

If you are looking for a fully refurbished and highly poular broads cruiser that is big enough to spend extended time aboard in great comfort, then this is unquestionably the boat for you.
Viewing is highly recommeded given the scale and quality of this refit.

Make no mistake she is not your standard Calypso... She really has to be seen to be appreciated.

Calypso 28's are highly popular boats, and one like this which has benefitted from this level of attention, equipment and finish will rarely come to the market, so is sure get a lot of interest.
