When you call Melges Performance Sailboats or the North Sails loft in Zenda, you most likely will speak with Andy Burdick, revered as one of the most experienced, intuitive and knowledgeable sailors in the industry.
Like his colleagues, Andy comes from a family of sailors, all imbued with enthusiasm and fervor for the sport of sailing. A great competitor, Melges 24 World Champion crewmember, and multiple national champion many times over in more than one league of Scow, Andy contributes his design ideas, concepts and talents to the boat-building business at Melges and the sail-design processes with North. Most importantly, Andy approaches every customer — each Scow and Sportboat owner — as if it is his only one.
“There is a certain kind of magic here in Zenda. We build fun, simple, fast boats that are a thrill to haul around the country with unmatched value in the friendships that are formed not only for adults, but what a great atmosphere for kids too. It's the best!”
“The Melges Team has never been stronger than it is today. Feel free to call or e-mail us anytime.”
President, Melges Performance Sailboats
