The Fairline Holiday was the most popular craft to date built by Fairline with over 590 boats built. This semi displacement deep V hull with rounded shallow transom section was designed by John Bennett. The design produced a craft suitable for inland and sheltered coastal use. The interior design offers 2 conventional V berths to the bow section with 2 further berths extending aft under the cockpit. This was one of the first designs of cruiser with an elevated cockpit height giving good cruising versions. Some craft have been re-engined over the years.
The mk1 and mk2 models were slightly smaller at 22ft 1in/6.73m in length and 8ft 6ins/2.59m beam.
