Overview

STIG is hull #4 of the Melges 40.
Originally conceived as an all out, One-Design racer, this boat has found a second calling under ORC, whilst of course still having the ability to race under class rules.
Designed by Botin Partners Naval Architecture and built by Premier Marine Composites from full carbon, this boat is nothing short of first class......
With some subtle re-moding, she could be a giant killer, particularly at this price point!
