[20 May 2020] Scott Alle, Editor of Sails Magazine, reports that “for SailsLIVE this week, I had the pleasure of a long chat with world-champion sailor, designer and engineer Pete Melvin.

“Pete would be an excellent long-lunch candidate – one of the sport’s design gurus, an America’s Cup insider and all-round nice guy.

“Morrelli & Melvin, the firm he founded with Gino Morrelli, has pumped out leading performance multihull designs [including the Rapido 60, 50 and now 40] for the past decade or so.”

In the Performance Edge article Scott discusses his “highly developed foiling and hull knowledge, as well as new ranges of production boats currently in build (including the Rapido 60, 50 and now 40)”.
