Dear Mr. Lemonnier,
Thank you for your interest on the Merges 20…which is a great boat to sail!
Launched in 2009, the Melges 20, was sold in over 300 boats of which 140 boats are currently sailing around the world. More than 40 boats will be attending the European Division of the World League, a new concept and calendar for 2017 season that I invite you to check on our webpage. The European Division will begin the 7th of April with the first event taking place on the Ligurian waters of Portovenere (Italy) and it will also see the first Melges event ever on the beautiful Croatian waters of Sebenik and Zadar.
The sales of Europe are directly managed by Melges Europe which is based in Italy. Melges Europe also works as the European Division Class Manager, always focused to organize the bests regattas in top venues, providing customized service packages that fully satisfy our Melges20 owners (including rigging, unrigging, transports, hotel booking, etc) and granting the “family feeling” the Melges 20 owners are always talking about.
For your convenience the 2017 EU season Calendar:
- - European Event No. 1 - Porto Venere, Italy (April 7-9)
- - European Event No. 2 - Scarlino, Italy (May 12-14)

Melges 20 is an highly advanced sportboat both for lakes or sea racing and fulfills the need of a fast/compact strict one design with a spacious deck layout, easy to sail and rig. There is no weight restriction so you can sail the boat in two person or up to four either that you are looking for a family/friend team or a professional team.
