The new year rings in a new era for Melges as the Wisconsin-based company introduces the brand new Melges Power 26. Melges has been producing high quality performance sailboats for nearly 75 years.

"Our team at Melges is excited to deliver a power boat that breaks the conventional mold," said CEO Harry Melges III, "Boats should be a joy to drive and a joy to look at."

Several years of research and development went into the Melges Power 26. Melges utilized scale models, prototypes and all-condition testing to prove the design and construction paths were on target. The result is a beautiful, sleek, simplistic design that is incredible to drive and is true to the Melges brand.

New boats can be purchased directly through Melges. International headquarters are in Zenda, Wisconsin, USA. Call (262) 275-1110, email for more information. Melges Power specifications and details can be viewed at www.MelgesPower.com.
