Saint Petersburg ,
This is one of the later boat produced that has the carbon fiber mast (hence the 260), but is much like the original
Hinterhoeller built Nonsuch 26. The boat boasts quality construction, an abundance of comfort and beautiful interior
detailing. In addition, with the keel-stepped, unstayed mast, wishbone boom and single sail, this cat-rigged boat is
easily sailed by one, but can accommodate 4 in two cabins with 6’2” headroom. performance and accommodations.
Calypso does sail to weather quite nicely with her efficient underbody, keel and spade rudder. The carbon mast is a
bonus over the original spun aluminum mast in that weight aloft is significantly reduced, which enhances
performance, eliminates pitch-poling and you can carry the sail plan into higher wind ranges before the need to reef.
The wishbone boom functions like a boom with a loose-footed sail, and moves fore and aft with a choker line which
acts as an outhaul to increase or decrease draft in various wind conditions. The beam is carried well aft and the boat
is so easy to work on with large spaces below decks that are accessible. Her interior sleeps 4 in a double forward 6’6”
berth and two single settees. A table folds down in the main salon for comfortable seating while dining. The head,
with hot & cold water, shower and privacy door is on the starboard side aft of the settee and across lies the U-shaped
galley. This is one of the cleanest well maintained Nonsuch 260 on the market with many upgrades!
