Marine Applications

From Our Clients
"The Melges 17 is the latest addition to the Melges Performance Sailboats family of high performance, one design products. All 17 feet of this streamlined racer is geared for speed, from its supermodel profile to its 16 lb carbon fiber spar made by Forte. We demanded the toughest, most durable lightweight carbon fiber spar available for this guaranteed edge-of-your-seat racing boat. Forte exceeded our expectations in every way, from their top-shelf customer service and reasonable price to, most importantly, their superior product. "
