The SB20 is a one-design class of sailboat commonly used for racing. Marketed and distributed by Sportsboat World the boat was designed by Tony Castro and launched in 2002.
The yacht is an open keelboat and is designed for racing with a crew of 3 (or 4) whose maximum weight must not exceed 270 kg. With a high aspect ratio keel with a very high ballast ratio the yacht is very stable, butalso quite fastdue to the substantial sail area.
The SB20 is unique in that it does not allow hiking, using a small stainless steel bar to prevent hiking by the crew, this allows competitive crews of all shapes, sizes and ages. There are over 700 boats worldwide, sailed in over 20 countries.
