Built by Melges and designed by Reichel Pugh, the Melges 14™ exudes innovation and excellence in one design sailing. It’s speed, quality, durability, comfort and fun wrapped into one dynamic and modern sailing package. In development for over two years, it offers a fun and exciting upwind and downwind experience when compared to other boats in its size range. Perfect for all ages, it features a large, comfortable open cockpit — so no bailing. An ultra-cool carbon mast and boom complements its modern, yet flexible sail plan (full or mid-range). You can either car top or tow it behind any vehicle. It’s easy to move it around on a custom Melges 14 dolly. It’s a fantastic beach boat — a fun, family-style sailboat or a one-design racing platform.

Some folks like to go exploring up and down the river. Some will trailer to other lakes and rivers, or even to the northern Gulf coast. On weekends of the full moon, there will be simple overnighters just up the river, or there might be a longer cruise down the "Little Grand Canyon of the Tennessee" or up to Watts Bar - cruisin' with other sailors, enjoying the scenery and wildlife wherever our boats will take us.
