We’ve been firing on all cylinders in Zenda, Wisconsin at the Melges Headquarters. Every single boat that leaves our shop is crafted with the utmost precision. Most recently, we’ve been building Melges 14s, Melges E Scows, Melges C Scows, Melges MCs, and Melges X Boats. Last year we built over 100 Melges 14s! This year is shaping up to be another great year for the new fleet with lots of 14s already in production. We recently shipped out 3 of these speed machines to Japan, and in the current production line we’re building 10 bound for Germany. To get scow country ready for the new season, we’ve been building a great number of boats including a 2017 Melges E Scow soon to be in the hands of Jeff Solum of the Minnetonka Yacht Club.
