|Builder's Report -
Lots to look forward to as we move into 2017. The sailing season will be here soon and many of you are already planning. Parts, Covers, Sails, New Boats! Lots of new boats! We are grateful for our many scow customers. They are keeping the Inland Racing tradition alive. Currently Melges is building many new boats for most classes.
We saw an early surge of new E scow orders. In fact, we never stopped building them through the summer rolling into the fall. 12 new boats will be delivered for the 2017 racing season. The many advancements in this class has made the E scow the hot, growing fleet in the ILYA.
C scow orders are on the rise also. Currently with 10 on order and hoping for more. There are so many fun events in this class with ultra-competition. Which means - you want fresh gear entering the season.
The youth scene is strong at Melges. X boats will be produced through the winter. 9 total right now. The Melges MC is always a popular boat for us to build. Producing 25-40 new boats per year. Our early run of boats are near complete and a big thank you goes to the customers that have picked up their boats in preparation for the 2017 season.
Melges builds 10 one-design classes and they are all produced in Zenda, Wisconsin USA. Come see us, come and see our new boat production. Come see what is new on the new scows for 2017!
Many new scows to build. Many new customers!
Think sailing. Think Melges
