Melges 20 fever is spreading fast! Its highly contagious as is the excitement about this extraordinary new boat. Last weekend sailors in Texas got a hands-on, first time sail courtesy of Gulf Coast Melges Dealer John Kolius and his team at KO Sailing.

On hand was Andy Burdick from Melges Performance Sailboats. "With two boats here in Seabrook, Texas, we went through at least 100 sailors trying this brand new boat. People are really excited to see the Melges 20 — more excited to experience it." said Burdick. "This boat is the perfect fit in the Melges family of sportboats and complements the already existing success of the Melges 24 and the Melges 32."
