Melges Performance Sailboats is excited to welcome North 44 Yacht Sales as the newest Melges 15 dealer serving Atlantic Canada. 

Situated in Halifax since 2020, North 44 Yachts is a fully integrated company with divisions in marine services, parts, transportation, yacht management, and sales. 

With more than 40 years on the water, founder Stu McCrea has successfully competed in numerous Championship and offshore events. McCrea is well informed when it comes to the Melges brand after campaigning his Melges 32 and crewing on Melges 24s. 

“My interest in becoming a dealer stems from the absolute enjoyment many of the Melges boats have provided to me over the years,” explained McCrea. “Melges has been developing practical and fast boats that live up to that reputation, which is part of the reason we wished to partner. I believe the Melges 15 is another step in the right direction.”

With more than 4,600 miles of coastline, Nova Scotia is home to a vibrant racing scene – from casual weeknight races to the 352-mile Marblehead to Halifax Race. “For our region, the versatility the boat provides with transporting options allows sailors to partake in more international events, especially during the winter months,” said McCrea. “As the fleet has experienced explosive growth, I believe now is the time to get onboard.”

Melges is looking forward to expanding its reach and providing a high-quality experience through North 44 Yachts on the North Atlantic Coast. For more information on North 44 Yacht Sales, visit Not in Nova Scotia? Click here to locate a Melges 15 Dealer near you!
