Evolved from a number of designs in this size range sailed at Boothbay Harbo ME during the 1930's.
Racing took place under a loose set of rules called the Boothbay Harbor Twenty-Foot Class.

THE BOOTHBAY HARBOR ONE DESIGN came about at the request of these interested in competing under a true one design rule to improve the fairness of racing and reduce costs.
Gaard Handel, originally from Germany, but a Maine resident, was a highly thought of designer who had worked on a number of Americas Cup defenders and had previously drawn a number of successful 20 footers of this type.

A number of other designs or classes exist including: BOOTHBAY 20, CHRISTMAS COVE ONE DESIGN, GREAT LAKES 21, HODGDON 21, fall into a related but complex evolutionary path.
