New Boat Showcase

2020 October 1

Canceled boat shows aren’t keeping manufacturers from launching a fleet of fast, fun and exciting new boats

Melges 15

From the company that brought you go-fast speedsters such as the Melges 24 and the new IC37 comes a small boat designed to be sailed by people of all ages. With a well-designed cockpit and stable hull shape, the Melges 15 can be used a trainer, fleet racer or friendly daysailer.

Paine 15

When Chuck Paine, the mastermind behind some of sailing’s most beautiful cruising boats, wanted a daysailer to putter about in, he took pencil to paper and designed the Paine 15. With a comfortable cockpit, self-tacking jib and easy to set up mast, this perky and pretty boat is perfect for long afternoon sails.

Tartan 245

Designer Tim Jackett says his latest daysailer, “keeps it simple, keeps it safe, keeps it fun and keeps it real.”  With 900 pounds of ballast, the Tartan 245 is sure to be stable and the large cockpit offers plenty of comfort for singlehanding or sailing as a family.
