Following the same successful path of the Melges 24, the 32 is easy to trailer, rig and launch. “We wanted the boats to be race-ready right from the factory, a “just add water” approach to the racing market,” says Andy Burdick, Vice President of Melges Performance Sailboats. The Melges 32 has expanded into Europe and is swiftly becoming one of the hottest One-Designs in the world.”
