CALYPSO has been in freshwater since 2007.
She has a custom interior with 2” more headroom.
Robert Perry when reviewing the Gozzard 44 he said, "Gozzard yachts are always beautifully detailed and built with uncommon pride. The look is classic..." This certainly describes "Calypso" well. She is well equipped, comfortable, and safe cruising yacht. She has a unique interior where the main saloon settee converts to a private stateroom with a centerline berth. The aft cabin is considered the owner's cabin with an adjoining head. The main saloon also has two swivel chairs and a low coffee table that converts to a larger dining table.
Calypso has the innovative Gozzard 44 interior incorporating the convertible forward dinette area with the small table fixed and the large dining table stowed. These settees easily swing together to make a walk around queen berth with privacy provided via the hinged door and lift-able bulkhead section.
Aft to port is a designated deep freezer compartment and then head with separate shower stall. Next is the aft stateroom with a king-size berth, hanging lockers, and drawers.
To starboard is the small settee then huge u shaped galley with 10 cubic ft 2 section refrigerator (DC5000 compressor and water pump electric motor in 2007), 3 burner gimbaled Force 10 stove, double SS sink, and microwave. Aft of this is the nav station with a large interior storage area behind with cabinetry and separate cockpit lazarette storage aft.
Custom built with 6'11" headroom thru out and new ultra-leather upholstery in 2006.

The hull is molded from female production tooling. The laminate as with all Gozzard Yachts is a “sandwich” cored construction. The “SP Systems” Corecell foam core increases panel stiffness, strength, impact resistance, and sound/thermal insulation while maintaining an excellent weight to strength ratio. Most of the weight saved by designing the cored laminate is then re-applied in extra skin thickness on either side of the core, making the laminate schedule, in the words of the SP engineers, “robust in the Gozzard tradition”. Only marine grade Vinyl-ester laminating resins are used in the hull laminate.
The hull laminate is constructed of knitted double bias E-glass RM (0-90) and XM (45-45) cloth. Additional reinforcing is utilized in the bow, trail-board, chain plate, mast step, and transom areas. The core material measures ¾” in thickness, and has a density of 6 pounds per cubic foot. The core is installed using both vacuum bagging and hand-laid techniques. The core runs from the cove stripe to approximately 10” from the centerline. The coring material is eliminated and replaced with a solid glass laminate in the areas of the sheer line, centerline, keel, rudderpost, and thru-hulls.
The deck, like the hull, is finished with Cook “Buffback” Off White gelcoat and is a molded FRP sandwich construction with ½”, ¾” and 1” SPS Corecell. In areas where equipment is to be installed, the coring material is eliminated created a solid laminate. The outer and inner skins are built up to a thickness of approximately 1/4”. The deck flange is solid and built up to ½” in thickness. Extra reinforcing is added to the cleat, mast step, and winch attachment areas as well as high-stress areas and corners. The hull deck joint is bedded in 3M 5200 and bolted on 6” centers with 5/16” Stainless Steel machine screws with ny-lock (aircraft) nuts.
All main or structural bulkheads are constructed using cored FRP laminates for superior strength, low relative weight, and total rot resistance. All bulkheads are glassed to the hull and later the deck before the interior trim work is installed.
While some manufacturers install a grid-like structure with the cabin sole screwed down onto the tops, we prefer to use a closed grid structure by combining the floor and the stringer surfaces into assemblies. This not only makes the floor nice and solid underfoot it also compartmentalizes the areas you can not easily access normally. The center section is accessed with removable bilge panels to provide access to tanks and pumps.
