A wooden-hulled vessel, she is built of Oregon pine. After only four months on the route, Gasan received an attractive offer and sold her. Cousteau restructured and transformed the ship into an expedition vessel and support base for diving , filming and oceanographic research. One of the more unusual expeditions involving the vessel was a survey of Abu Dhabi waters conducted by Cousteau on behalf of British Petroleum BP in - the first and last time it was used for an oil survey.
The ship was also fitted with a see-through "nose" and an observation chamber 3 metres 9. The Calypso underwater camera is named after this ship. On 8 January , a barge accidentally rammed Calypso and sank her in the port of Singapore. A long series of legal and other delays kept any restoration work from beginning. A dispute arose between Francine Cousteau and Loel Guinness , grandson of the original owner. When this dispute was discovered by the sponsoring Mayor of La Rochelle, it added to the air of uncertainty and hesitancy over funding the restoration.

In September , a petition was launched on change. Within three weeks the petition collected signatures. The Cousteau Society had made a similar request of the French government in As of October the Piriou shipyard stated that they expected a resolution from the tribunal de commerce commercial court in Quimper within a few weeks, setting the stage for the restoration of the ship by Piriou or another shipyard. Only the newly fitted wooden parts of the ship were affected, not the original historical structural elements.
John Denver wrote a hit song " Calypso " as a tribute to Calypso and her crew. Jean Michel Jarre wrote a four-part composition in tribute to the ship, called Waiting for Cousteau Cousteau", which was featured on their album Hell-O , originally released in It is not entirely clear whether this song is in tribute or slander, but the song is entirely about Jacques Cousteau and his ship Calypso.
In the movie, Zissou travels the seas in a ship called Belafonte. Harry Belafonte is a noted musician who played calypso music on an album called Calypso.
