Detractors like to say that Melges Performance Sailboats fans "drink the Kool-Aid," fanatically following the Zenda company’s offerings. But the real reason people buy Melges boats besides the fact that their boats are fast and fun is that the company does a great job at everything that a boat owner needs. They built quality boats designed by top designers, they write good class rules, and they work their asses off to grow their one-design fleets.
The latest example is a little trip taken by two-time Melges 24 World Champion and Melges Europe owner Federico Michetti to lovely Sydney Harbor to receive two brand new boats – Mumm/Farr 30 World Champ Guy Stening’s new Melges 32 ‘Optimum’ and a new demo Audi Melges 20 – and get some people in ’em. There are now five M32s on the harbor, and if you want to meet the team and try out these sweet rides, give ’em a call and come down to the Royal Sydney Yacht Squadron this weekend to ‘get your sportboat on.’
