Introducing "ICY", a Melges IC37 from Mark Mills.
This mid-sized, all rounder is a highly capable racing yacht with a proven track record in One Design class racing, IRC, ORCi or ORR and has an awful lot to offer the discerning racer.
The thought process for the IC37 was always to put the power back into the hands of the owner, on a platform that offers that big boat feel, but with a design that is easy to maintain and doesn't require huge owner and crew input, particularly financially.
The IC37 fills a substantial gap in the market for those sailors that are looking for fun, fast sailing, with potent rating performance and most importantly ease of use…………. Welcome to the IC37 by Melges.
In her first two seasons ICY achieved a huge amount of success, with Cowes Week class victory overall, as well as sister ships winning under ORCi and ORR in the USA.
ICY is sold with two keels, a fully race tuned sail wardrobe from North Sails and presents exceptionally well.
Quite simply a huge amount of boat on offer at this price point and she can be prepared for shipment as a term of the sale.
