There are a number of Risdon Brook Radio Yacht Club members who have enjoyed building their own wooden IOM.
We have collected resources on the internet for you if you are interested in constructing your own yacht. Here are some well known designs that are available at a reasonable price (some free!)
IOM design rules can be found here
There are at least three commercial IOM designs that are proven in competition:
The Corbie, proven and very competitive design by local yacht designer and manufacturer, Jeff Byerley, Mirage Radio Yachts
The Alternative, proven and competitive design by Australian/British yacht maker Brad Gibson
The Ellipsis, a new design by Australian designer Frank Russell. Other designs for wooden IOMs are on Franks page.
The Manta, designed by Andreas Hoffman. The plans are free, but writing is German.
The Radio Sailing Shop lists numerous resources for building your own IOM (wooden or fibreglass), and they are one of the major Australian suppliers of radio sailing rigs, parts and fittings
Radio Yacht Supplies Australia, run by Denton Roberts who was a significant sponsor of the 2018 Australian Radio Yachting Championships held in Tasmania, also provide a wide range of radio sailing equipment
Another radio sailing supplier - David Thomas, from Red Ant Yachts also supplies components for IOM and RM classes
Finally, if you are interested in building your own wooden IOM (and especially if you live in Southern Tasmania), make contact with your local IOM yacht club - you will find plenty of passionate, knowledgeable people who are more than willing to offer advice and lend a hand to get you started!
