'Calypso JJ' has proven to be a reliable and comfortable cruising yacht in all conditions, easily handled by a skipper alone or with a family seeking their next big adventure. Dufour has the well-earned reputation for well-built, high performing cruising yachts that preserve their market value and popularity.

Fitted out with a 4-cabin layout, she comes with an essential list of cruising items needed and is definitely priced to sell. Calypso’s topsides were repainted when bought by the current owner with two-pack paint in 2008 and has received regular maintenance and attention as required.

She is being sold with new antifouling, and will deliver a roomy yet fast cruising vessel ready for coastal cruising or long passages. Just last week, the owner reports sailing single handed from Blairgowrie to Refuge Cove, 120 nautical miles in just 14 hours, broad reaching on an 18 kt SW wind at an average speed over 8.5 knots.

The Dufour 54 is a highly sought-after, well-equipped cruising yacht, a huge U-Shaped Galley with plenty of storage and bench space and the large Chart Table is well positioned for comfortable navigation. Four heads allow for guests to have their own space, and the well-designed saloon area enables good access for all.
