I originally contacted the designer, Ron Holland - originally from New Zealand, now in Ireland, who after searching his files couldn't find any designs for the Holland or Eygthene.
I found hull design scans on the Eygthene Forum, which was the 24 foot for-runner of the Holland 25. I took those 8 x A4 scans and pasted them (as well as possible) together in Photoshop, then traced them in AutoCAD.
In AutoCAD, I was then able to stretch, extend, tweak and largely guestimate the hull lines that you can see to the right. If you click on that graphic, it will load an A4 PDF that is much clearer. This shows how beamy the Holland 25 is but with a very 'fish bowl' style beam cross section. Although this gives a wide deck, the beam at the waterline is no where near as wide.
