In May 2019 FIBRE Mechanics delivered the 20th Melges IC-37 to the New York Yacht Club in Newport RI.

 

Having agreed to construct the boats just 12 months ago, the team at FIBRE Mechanics successfully completed a complete set of production tooling and 10 boats in the space of 9 months.  The 10 boats from FIBRE Mechanics together with the club's existing 10 boats make up a fleet of 20 one-design 37ft racing boats, available to Club members to compete in one of the most competitive and intense one-design racing programmes yet seen.

 

All 20 boats have been built to exacting standards to ensure that the weight, and weight distribution of each is identical. The 1520 kg carbon keel fin and lead bulb assemblies are corrected to within a single kg, and all deck gear, sails, rig and sailing systems adhere to a strict one-design specification drawn up by Mills Design in close consultation with Harry Melges, and drawing on the experience of an all-star committee of top sailors from the NYYC.
