Melges 24

Melges 24

5 Seasons

The Melges 24 is by far the most unique one design sportboat in the world and to this day maintains a growing and vibrant class. There is no comparison. The response and excitement generated by this America’s Cup inspired boat is phenomenal.

Typically sailed with a crew of 4, the Melges 24’s comfortable, light-hull displacement design prefers to plane. Its professionally engineered, high-tech stance includes a carbon fibre spar, rudder, bowsprit and vertical keel fin. Another key component of the M24 is a 670 sq ft asymmetrical spinnaker that lifts and pulls the boat forward on a downwind sprint. It adds speed, simplicity and ease of handling giving way to a more challenging tactical race.

This get-up-and-go sportboat package has the ability to facilitate trailering, hoist and ramp launching. With a retractable keel designed specifically for traveling, it fits behind any vehicle and hitch. The Melges 24 possesses an easy to rig personality requiring only two sets of hands for a quick set-up. Weighing in at a healthy 1,783 lbs. (809 kg), it is lightweight and a pleasure to haul from your local club to a World Championship.

To date, more than 800 boats are sailed competitively around the world, with established fleets across North America, Europe and Australasia and developing fleets in South America and Asia.
