Scott’s operation at Calypso Boats is the antithesis of a big factory that spits out cookie-cutter production boats. The emphasis at his operation is one-at-a-time hand laid and finished construction updated to today's 100% composite construction. Scott oversees every aspect of the manufacturing process and insures that every vessel adheres to the company's legacy of building bullet proof boats that are exceptional in quality and finish.
“I have twelve team members that have worked with me for more than 20 years,” says Scott. We hand lay all the fiberglass and we don’t use spray on resin or chopper guns. Even though I’m the owner, I am still on the factory floor overseeing every aspect of the manufacturing process and in fact still spray gel coat, roll the fiberglass and cut some of the composites myself.”
Scott installs equipment as per the owner’s request such as hi-tech electronics, full auto-pilot and twin-screen radar once the exterior and interior are complete. A Calypso 34 will take on average four to six weeks to complete. The advantage of his location on the northwest coast of Trinidad is the ability to easily trial new vessels in calm bay waters as well as the rougher Caribbean Sea to the north and Atlantic Ocean to the east.
