Frans Maas drew the Hawk 42 in 1968 specifically for the Fastnet race. Several were built, including construction number 249, the Timujin (the original name of the Calypso) which was launched in April 1970. This Hawk is the last in a series of 4 (including 2 in polyester).
The first thing to notice about the Calypso is the beautiful classic line that is so characteristic of the racers of the early 70s. Then the most striking is the very spacious cockpit. And then immediately followed by the wide side decks. All this makes it very pleasant to stay outside on the Calypso, both in the harbor and under sail.
The Calypso has a classic interior that is deliberately kept in its original state as much as possible, but over the years luxury has been added. For example, there is a hot air heater and a 4-burner stove with large oven installed. Striking are the very practical sea cages (with each type of wind a very comfortable place to sleep) and the large folding table where 8 people can eat.
The 2 meter long seats can be widened to create 2 extra berths. Ample storage space is available both under the sea cages and in the very spacious hanging locker.
The last 20 years a lot of major maintenance was done by Skip Maritiem in Hindeloopen (NL). The teak deck was completely rerubbed and partly replaced in 1994, but will need attention in the coming years.
The asking price takes into account major maintenance / replacement of the deck.
