Sarasota, FL- January 11, 2018 – Chris-Craft proudly accepted the award of Boat of the Year presented by Motor Boat & Yachting for the Calypso 30 model. The award was announced Wednesday, January 10th, 2017, at a gala at the Rosewood Hotel in London, and received by Stephen Julius, Chairman of Chris-Craft Boats, as well as Richard and Claire Bates, Owners of Bates Wharf Marine Sales.
Hosted by Motor Boat & Yachting, the awards are determined entirely by the boats design, ability and value in the market place. All boats in the running, including the Calypso 30, were sea-trialed and tested. The judges stated the following before awarding the Chris-Craft Calypso 30: “Our winner is a boat that combines effortless performance and world class build quality in a surprisingly practical but impeccably stylish package.”
The Calypso combines the classic Chris-Craft design and comfort with a multitude of amenities that create an ideal crossover. The Calypso model series is perfect for the family who enjoys watersports, casual fishing, or cruising.
Similar to its 26 ft. counterpart, the Calypso 30 features a crowd-pleasing layout with open bow seating as well as an open cockpit with a removable table that is perfect entertaining. You’ll find recessed storage in the bow, port and starboard, along with aft flip-up seats which create an opportunity for maximum cabin space. The Calypso 30 also boats a dive door starboard side for quick jumps into the water and easy boarding on and off the boat.
