Melges production moving to U.S.

Posted on

Production of the Audi Melges 20 is moving to the United States, the Zenda, Wis.-based company announced.

The first series of boats were produced by McConaghy, a builder with operations in Australia, China and Hong Kong.

“Moving production back to the U.S. will potentially allow for higher availability and quicker delivery,” the company said in a statement. “Right now, it’s important to have production pumping in the USA. The Melges team is excited about this transition and ready to take this fast, fun and truly exciting sportboat to the next level.”

Melges Performance Sailboats will exhibit at the Newport (R.I.) International Boat Show Sept. 17-20 and the U.S. Sailboat Show in Annapolis, Md., Oct. 8-12.
