Previously built by Custom Fiberglass Products of florida in the 80's and early 90's Production of new boats has been terminated. Call it a baby Island Packet for its looks. Much cheaper than a Dana and perfect for costal crusing. Marine Head, wheel, 18 HP yanmar, full galley, very traditional lines,

Pros:
Cons:

Good: shoal draft, headroom, interior joinery excellent, good trailersailer, enclosed headspace, well ventilated for Florida, fairly dry aft cockpit, extremely fast off the wind (will surf with spinnaker), nice anchor locker and forespar, electrical system is topnotch, deckware very sturdily made.
Bad: sails to weather only fair. Rudder is too small. Tends to turn downwind coming out of a tack. Sideslips whenever weather is fore of beam. Not very seakindly in quartering seas. No stove. Probably better to have a tiller on such a small boat. Sails about while at anchor due to little keel. Must heed small craft advisories strictly. Hull side layup could have been heavier fiberglas.

Classic lined pretty lady. Fun little daysailer, head room won't fit a six footer, head compartment small but usable, hard to find parts for some components. Overall a good sailing boat, seems to be built well and easy to handle with one person.

Pros:
Cons:

Nice and solid, with salty lines and bowsprit. Our Sovereign 24 is the deep (3'-7") keel model (more common is the 2'-7" shoal keel). Deep keel version goes to weather well without heeling much. Trailerable, but sits up pretty high and needs a winch to launch/retrieve; not your weekend trailer boat. Tiller steering, 5'-7" of head room, galley, alcohol stove, enclosed head (portable) and a 20 gal fresh water tank. Interior woodwork is nicely done. Roomy for a 24-footer, sleeping for two is cosy; cramped for four. Needs better mainsheet traveler, but the rest of the hardware is sound. People have said it's the biggest 24-footer they have ever seen.
