Amels yacht CALYPSO delivered after major refit
Sold in 2016, CALYPSO’s new Owner opted to return her to the original builder for a major refit. This was the second refit for the 61.5-metre Amels yacht (originally delivered as SOLEMAR in 2003) after her first Owner brought her back in 2004 for modifications. She departed our yard in January 2017 following her complete transformation during an 11-month Refit project. Sailing under her new name CALYPSO, she looks more beautiful than ever.
• Upgraded with a long list of modifications
• Full exterior paintwork with new colour accents.
• Luxury interiors fully refreshed
• Crew interiors upgraded
• New galley, new wheelhouse bridge equipment and an upgraded AV entertainment system.
• Main engines, generators and mechanical systems overhaul.
A NEW LEASE OF LIFE
We completely repainted the yacht, restoring her exterior lines to glimmering perfection. Our renowned Amels paint managers ensured the absolute highest quality paintwork in our climate-controlled drydock.
The crew interiors have been fully refreshed and we installed a new galley and wheelhouse bridge equipment. The main engines, generators and mechanical systems have been overhauled.
New luxury interiors
With the Owner’s choice of interior designer Aileen Rodriguez, CALYPSO has a luxurious and charming interior that respects the integrity of the original build. The remarkably spacious two-storey Master Stateroom has a clear head height of over 4 metres (13.5 ft) and is illuminated by a spectacular oval skylight, as well as two levels of windows. Stairs lead up from the bedroom to a private observatory lounge, study and bar area.
“She looks fantastic – better now than when she was first built. The finish and quality of the paintwork are truly amazing.”
Refit Manager Maxx Ainsworth
Calypso AFTER HER REFIT
“The Owners visited the yard four times during the project including the renaming ceremony and they are incredibly happy with the yacht. Her new interior is very inviting, very welcoming and the workmanship is beautiful. It’s been a major project, a lot of work, but we’ve thoroughly enjoyed the experience at Amels. The project team at Amels were very easy to deal with. Any issue we had was never a problem, we always found solutions together.”
Owners’ Refit Manager Maxx Ainsworth, who also captained the yacht from 2005 to 2008.
