75 years of quality boat building 1945-2020 © Melges Performance Sailboats

We are celebrating 75 years of boat building in Zenda, Wisconsin, USA.

Although the company has evolved from humble beginnings as a wooden flat-bottom rowboat builder to the creators of the highest quality hulls, sails, covers and accessories, the commitment to detail, community building, and passion for the sport has remained.

From two new A Scows coming in Spring 2020, to the ever-growing MC fleet, to Melges 14s spread around the world, we continue to deliver the finest sport boats, scows and dinghies on the market. Each boat is built with pride and backed by experience.

Can we interest you in a new Melges for 2020?
