    Holman 26 also known as a Stella But.
    Reputedly because a Stella owner said to Kim Holman.
    "Can you design me a yacht, Like a Stella, But with more headroom and carvel planking?"
    Not sure it's true but a good story.

    On page 81 of the August 2019 edition of Classic Boat there is a small piece about a Holman 26 needing restoration and, although not refered to as a quote, it says ".... Holman's 37th design.....for clients wanting something like a Stella but a little larger......" 👍

    well they got it, slightly larger and faster than the Stella, but not as fast or as large the Twister.

    Oh yeah? As a former Stella owner, that's fighting talk! ☺
