MEL Composites provides infusion technology for Sasga Yachts

Sasga Yachts, formerly known as Menorquín Yachts, is integrating MEL Composites’ infusion technology in its manufacturing processes.

A partnership between MEL Composites, Sasga Yachts, and naval architect Barracuda Yacht Design started with the development of the Menorquín 42 project. MEL Composites has worked closely with Sasga Yachts to optimize construction details for a safer, more cost-effective infusion strategy.

The successful implementation of resin infusion for the Menorquín 42 laid the foundation for further collaboration, culminating in the development of the Menorquín 54 and extending to boats up to 68 feet in length.

MEL Composites supplies custom raw material kits tailored to Sasga Yachts’ specifications and provides dedicated on-site training and support for the infusion process. By providing a complete package comprising resins, fabrics, Aircell cores, consumables, and tools, MEL Composites ensures seamless integration and optimal performance, elevating Sasga Yachts' manufacturing standards.

Eduardo Galofre, CEO, MEL Composites, emphasized the importance of planning and material selection in achieving a successful infusion strategy. "Understanding the synergies between materials and consumables is paramount in realizing the full potential of resin infusion," said Galofre. "Our partnership with Sasga Yachts is an example of our commitment to delivering tailored solutions and technical support that enhance efficiency and performance."

Sasga Yachts’ motor yacht design is inspired by the traditional llaüt fishing boats of Spain’s Balearic Islands.
