The Holiday 34 is a cruising version of the highly capable Angelo Lavarnos L34; a highly capable and well proven ocean racer. The L34 built its reputation competing in the harsh ocean conditions off South Africa with several examples achieving respectable finishing positions in the Cape-Rio and Mauritius-Durban ocean races.
