Calypso Blue, this "state of the art" new design is a further development in the Seaspeed Design Team's Sea Cat hull form. Again the performance of this new 21 Metre high-speed Aluminium Catamaran is outstanding and far better than our previous ones and the competitors. It is now the time to up-date to the new version Seacats from

12-42 Metres. The design is based on "Bubbles" which was launched late 2013. The hull is fuel efficient semi-displacement hull which is proven in large seas and features high wing clearance, deep vee rounded chine hull forms and extra strong structure for extended life.

This version features walk around sides on the upper deck with large fwd and aft decks with lounge with seating big enough for all passengers to lie down. The lower deck features a spacious air conditioned day cabin with side located galley, servery and refrigeration to allow for the service of lunch and refreshment during the cruise. The foredeck is the most popular section of the boat and is extremely large and has ample space for up to 40-50 passengers.and in this case plumb bow with nose cone.

This is the 6th different custom catamaran design for Owners "Calypso Cruises". "Calypso Blue" joins the fleet as a Dive and Snorkel cruise boat, carrying out day trips to the Great Barrier Reef from the tourist port of Port Douglas. Each morning the stylish dive vessel will head out to the reef full of tourists from around the world and cruise out to the reef to experience 2-3 dives at pristine dive sites such as Agincourt and Opal reefs.

The aft' dive deck has four toilets including hot and cold water showers and wetsuit lockers. The two stage hydraulic platform allows for open access to the water to the passengers, when down creates a dive stairwell and when up is clear of the water for high speed cruising and tender support.

Large fuel capacity matched with fuel efficient hulls give extended range capabilities for delivery voyages or in an accommodation version extended cruising time. The powering is via twin Detroit S60 Engines (499kw) and prop/shaft for a speed of 27-28 knots. The 25 knots full load operation speed was easily reached. Fuel consumption is amazing with 23-24knots cruising speed at 100ltrs/hr each engine and super economy speed of 20 knots at 75 ltrs/hr per side.

The design and kit combination (kit option 2) has been prepared in accordance with the NSCV (AMSA) Class 1C (96 divers plus 4 crew) criteria with Hull and Deckhouse to Lloyds Register SSC standard for offshore operations. The same design can be utilized as a ferry to carry 150 Passengers in coastal operations or over 200pax in partially smooth waters.

"Calypso Blue" was built in Thailand by the Australian Thai Team  and was completed in 7 months from receipt of the aluminium KIT from Sea Speed Design. The plans and specifications were approved by Maritime Safety Queensland (MSQ) and construction was overseen by the Australian AMSA certified Surveyors and and electrical surveyors.
