Calypso and Alcyone have been labelled “Boats of Heritage Interest”
8 June 2012
Calypso and Alcyone, Equipe Cousteau's floating legends and faithful companions of all Captain Cousteau's adventures around the world, have been awarded the label «Boats of Heritage Interest” (Bateaux d'Intérêt Patrimoniaux), by the French Maritime and River Heritage Foundation, headed by Gérard d'Aboville. This label was founded with the goal to promote and honor most remarkable historic boats.
This certification, awarded for 5 years, is great recognition for these ships which have sailed the world's seas and oceans, as well as a great tribute to Captain Cousteau and his work.
Francine Cousteau and Equipe Cousteau would like to thank the FPMF team for labeling Calypso and Alcyone.
