Calypso - The green Contessa 32
The Calypso project is a joint venture between Jeremy Rogers Limited and The Green Blue, the joint environment programme of the British Marine Federation and the Royal Yachting Association created to help boat users, boating businesses, sailing clubs and training centres to reduce their impact on coastal and inland waters.

Since 2005, The Green Blue's influence and impact has extended across the UK marine leisure sector, from awareness raising and education to scientific research, and now, thanks to Calypso, a true exemplar of sustainable boating in action.
For Jeremy Rogers Limited, the Calypso project provided a unique opportunity to build a bespoke yacht whilst exploring new products and technology to improve the environmental impact of the boat and the sailing experience.
We hope that what we've discovered and are showcasing on Calypso will inspire builders and boaters to do things a little differently.
