The i550 is a very popular 18 foot stitch and glue design. Simple construction and avid builder blogs and websites add a sense of community and support for the builder. It is sloop rigged with an asymetric spinnaker and the powerful sailplan is modern and controllable.

The Gougeon Brothers (West System Epoxies) liked the design so much they built one for themselves and made a speed build video of “Hot Canary” in their shop. There are about 500 plan sets in 40 countries and 6 continents.
