Check the capital yachts website, but I believe it is solid with a few areas of foam core.

The brochure says:
"The Newport 27-S is built by the hand lay-up foam core and fiberglass method."

Newport 27 Bochure

I've installed a couple thru-hulls in my 1976 Newport 27 (granted, not a 27-S), and the plugs that came out didn't have any wood coring material.

I'm sure the construction varied from year to year, but I would be surprised if they suddenly decided to start coring their hulls with balsa.
