soverel48 is on a distinguished road
Soverel 48

FWIW, The earlier Soverel 48s had solid hulls. I know for sure hull #s 1 through 4 have solid hulls which have stood up very well over the years. Hull #14 has some core in the hull. I do not yet know the construction of the other hull numbers. Some boats were built with center boards while others were not. The 5 foot draft makes these boats very disirable for Bahamas cruising. The sailing qualities of the 48 are very surprising for such an old design. Anyone seeking more info on the Soverel 48 cxan go to: http://home.att.net/~stevelis/soverel.html

To your knowledge, are both of these boats solid glass? If cored, with what?
