Tippecanoe Boats - for Hulls & Kits, Electronics, Sail Manufacturers,
The One Meter yacht is lightweight, very fast and responsive to the controls making it a fun boat to sail, either as a pond boat or in competition.

An inexpensive two channel radio is all that is required for control of sails and rudder. The boat is easily disassembled and fits in a small size automobile for transporting to the pond or lake. The U.S. One Meter class is one of the least expensive classes for the new skipper, just starting in the hobby of R.C. sailing.

The U.S. One Meter Class is a developmental class, which means there are very few design restrictions. They include, overall hull length, keel depth and sail area (see class specification for the few remaining restrictions). The generally unrestrictive nature of the specifications, encourages one of a kind Home Built yachts. The hull can be self designed or built from available free plans. It is easily planked from wood, or can be made from wood forms covered with fiberglass, carbon fiber or Kevlar. The structure of the class specifications allows the designer/builder to experiment with a design, and then try it out on the water. It is a true "designers class".
