From Nomad 20 Trailer Yacht Blog (http://nomad20traileryacht.blogspot.com/2009/09/more-nomad-history.html):
“The [Comet 20] original design was know as a Nomad 20 trailer sailer and was designed and built in Australia by two partners. They had a disagreement and split up. One went to Melbourne with the mould. He modified it by adding a cabin hatch, raising the cabin height, changing the bow shape and the interior mouldings. He started a boat sales yard under the name of Bardo Sales.”
