Re: angelo lavranos holiday 34

I am not familiar with the Holiday 34, but I have some exposure to Angelo Lavranos work. While he is not all that well known in the U.S., Angelo Lavranos appears to be a talented designer. The few boats of his design that I have been aboard tended to be mildly conservative in design, and seemingly robustly engineered. Its hard to know how much of what I saw represented Mr. Levranos work, but the interiors were nicely laid out and detailed with none of the strange misteps that you sometimes see from less competent designers. The deck plan worked well on those boats as well. The level of finish on both boats were pretty utilitarian but well executed. Its hard to know whether that may have been because of the builder and/or owner rather than the designer. The hull lines on those boats were such that I would have expected good performance and a decent motion.

Robertson has a good reputation as a builder of performance cruisers and now multihulls. They built some of Farr's designs and the few that I have seen have a very nice level of fit and finish to them. Crawling around in the bilge of one of Farr designed Robertson built boats, I was impressed with the apparent quality of the glass work, even in spots that no one would normally see.

I don't know if this is helpful at all, but its all that I can bring to the discussion.
