Alioth has been designed by RC Sailing Lab to be manufactured using 3D printing technology.

The project gathered the experience of the lead project designer J.E., who contributed with his extensive experience in the IOM Class and the design team, who worked exhaustively in achieving modern, functional and harmonic shapes.

The purpose is to put on the water a 3D printed IOM hull, easy to assemble at home, and at a low price, capable of winning races at the highest level.

Alioth was launched in December 2020. Thanks to the early Alioth owners and the design team, a new upgrade was launched in February 2022 (Alioth 2022 version): hull shape was slightly modified to achieve better performance in strong winds; flat aft deck with lid-hatch option was implemented; now the hull thickness varies along the length to achieve a stiffer and strongest hull at the less weight possible; new CNC milling appendages molds were made.
