sportboat in the world. There is no comparison. Since
its introduction in 1993, the response and excitement
generated by this American's Cup breed is
phenomenal. This boat is HULL # 137

Showing Instructions Please note that all of our vessels are shown by prior appointment ONLY! We ask that that you give us at least 24 hours notice (even more if possible) by email or phone before you wish to see one of our boats. That way we can be sure and block out some time for you to see the boat! We do not want to arrive to an empty office because we are out showing a boat to your neighbor! Many of our boats are kept off-site & sometimes we can meet you at the marina/yard where the boat is located, or nearby and save you time traveling to Portside Yacht Brokers unnecessarily. We look forward to hearing from you!
Typically sailed with a crew of 4, the Melges 24's
comfortable, light-hull displacement design prefers to
plane. Designed by Reichel/Pugh, its professionally
engineered, high-tech stance includes a carbon fiber
spar, rudder, bowsprit and vertical keel fin. Another key
component of the Melges 24 is a 670 sq ft
asymmetrical spinnaker that lifts and pulls the boat
forward on a downwind sprint. It adds speed, simplicity
and ease of handling giving way to a more challenging
tactical race. That's built-in performance!
With a retractable keel designed specifically for
traveling, the Melges 24 fits behind any vehicle and
hitch on a custom, galvanized-steel Melges
Performance Sailboats trailer with fiberglass bunks.
The Melges 24 possesses an easy to rig personality
requiring only two sets of hands for a quick set-up.
Weighing in at a healthy 1,783 pounds, this
streamlined baby is a pleasure to haul from your local
club to a World Championship.
