Boomerang 20

The Boomerang 20 was designed to race and cruise on Port Phillip Bay in Melbourne Australia, sheltered water but choppy conditions. The original boats were cold moulded ply but most are moulded fibreglass. Hundreds have been built. The Boomerang 20 has always been a sort of classic. One of the all time best sellers of the 20ft. trailer sailers, the Boomerang was built in Victoria Australia by Maison Marine in the late 1970s and later by Peninsula Yachts.
