In the beginning....
The first Dillon racing boats were created in 2006 to fill a gap in the boat plans market for small tunnel and v-bottom boats eligible for nationally sanctioned racing. The earliest designs were intended for two-cylinder power in the 25hp to 40hp range. Since then, the design collection has extended into the 40hp to 80hp range.
Since 2006 these boats have won races and championships in American Powerboat Association races, and in 2011 made their debut at the OPC National Championships (Dillon boats took first and third).
Since 2006, Dillon racing boats have been built by amateur and pro builders around the world. See what these builders have accomplished in Customer Projects.
If you are looking for a small, high-performance boat that you can build and drive, then you've come to the right place.
You don't have to be a professional boatbuilder to build one, and you don't have to be a racer to enjoy it. Each boat features straightforward plank-on-frame plywood construction and includes detailed instructions which you can review before you make a purchase.
Whether you want to race or just go fast or are looking for a fun and satisfying project, one of my designs may be just right for you.
