After months of rumors, We can finally talk about Melges’s new boat, The Melges 15. Melges debut’d the boat on May 19th via Facebook and the Melges newsletter. The press release came out at 11 AM on 5/19/20 with a video and pictures, giving us a good look at the boat and how she sails.
The Melges 15 comes in two configurations: The M15 One Design with an asymmetric spinnaker and the Melges Club with a Main and Jib configuration. The asymmetric comes in 4 colors: Hot Pink, Neon Yellow, Red, Blue. The dolly, from Dynamic Dollies and Racks, is custom to the boat and gives you a wide variety of configurations depending on your water access. Option include: 40″ carbon tiller extension, racing sheets, custom sail numbers, full deck cover, bottom cover, rudder/tiller bag and a mast bag. Trailers are available as well. Single, double or triple. Boats can be stacked for transport as well. Pricing starts at $ 11,900.00
ECS’s first demo boat will arrive at the end of July. We are taking orders for the new Melges 15 at this time. Details and contact for purchase is on our website page. We will also be offering demo’s of the boat at our sailing center in Kitty Hawk, NC. Part of our “Try before you buy,” program. Please contact us for more details or to schedule a demo.
