I have owned a supersail and believe I have sailed on a Holland
The supersail are a Curran design, I had the pleasure of speaking to him before our purchase
. His concern was that many of the boats were finished to hull/deck stage and thus there is very little consistency with the deck
layout and interior
fit out. Almost all were fitted out by owners and I saw some very interesting ideas in some that I looked at. Apparently several of the rigs were fitted well forward of the intended design causing the anticipated issues and something you should check thoroughly. Balsa core deck
also caused a few soft spots, spent a lot of time with my router, dremel and glass.
Having said all that, we ended up with a great little boat, we twilight raced her, but a 3 blade
fixed prop, and old sails
etc and we just had a lot of good times. The fit out we had worked well for us, engine
gave us endless problems but, despite her weird looks at the stern, she was a good boat.
I never owned a Holland, but sailed them. I think they are the prettier of the 2 and as an all rounder probably equal to the supersail, as a racer
I would pick a Holland every day.
You should find the Holland keeps its value better, supersail owners are an eclectic mix and the price
should reflect that.
All in all you will get a nice boat from the Holland, and by contrast, if the supersail is well built, and only a survey
will tell, you can get a really nice boat, unusual enough to raise people's awareness and invite themselves for a drink to have a look. If she is a good one I would go the supersail all over again IMHO she will suit you nicely.
God luck - let me know what you decide
