What is an i550?
The i550 is a high performance sport boat suitable for the amateur builder. Designed by Christopher Beckwith it's a one off sport boat for fleet racing. Originally created for the MicroTon class the i550 has since been upgraded and redrawn.
The amateur builder with no building experience can construct an i550 in approx' 200 man hours. The simple ‘stitch and glue’ construction method produces a light, solid hull with room below for simple accommodation. Full building plans, packs, patterns, even pre-cut plywood kits are available to assist with building an i550, see the i550 Sport boat website for more details.
