Like the smaller Matilda 16, the Matilda 20 was designed by Robert Tucker, and then seems to have been built under licence by several manufacturers in different countries. Ouyang Boat Works certainly made a substantial number in Canada and they are occasionally advertised for sale. The Matilda 20 is a well equipped shallow draft weekend trailer-sailer with a lifting keel and a roomy interior including a galley with sink, and often an alcohol stove. For a 20 foot boat they have an unusually wide beam of almost 8 feet making them very stable, and providing a spacious cockpit.

Early boats (and boats constructed from plans) are hard chine plywood construction or fibreglass with moulds taken from a wooden hull, and usually have a fractional rig i.e. the forestay attached about three-quarters of the way up the mast. Later boats, and all of those produced in Canada by Ouyang, have round bilge fibreglass hulls and have a masthead rig with a larger foresail.
