Medina 20

Medina 20 Class AssociationDesigned by David Thomas for Hunter boats in 1979, the Medina 20 is a sporty lifting keel trailer-sailer, based on the designs of the highly successful Hunter Sonata. It combines excellent performance, ease of sailing and practicality, within a 20ft overall length. Compact 4-berth accommodation is provided in a single cabin.

With its light 860kg displacement and lifting keel the Medina is straightforward to launch and recover, while the low (keel up) 10″ draught allows Medinas to reach those places other boats cannot go. With a high performance bendy mast, fractional rig and 140% deck-hugging genoa, the Medina is fantastic to windward and is capable of matching or beating many fast 27 footers. Flat after hull sections promote early surfing and Medinas claim to have attained in excess of 10 knots under spinnaker downwind giving an exciting ride. On at least one occasion, a Medina racing in the Round The Island Race has been able to give a Channel 31 a good run.
