C&C 40 or Soverel 41

After listening to a friend rave (he''s an excitable type) about his Soveral 48 with a 9,000(?) bronze centerboard, and about all soverels in general, I started looking at a Soverel 41 K/CB for sale near me.

I also have noticed a C&C Crusader 40 K/CB for sale on Yachtworld. They seem similar outwardly, except the C&C has a shorter waterline. Does anyone know the construction materials and overall build quality for these two boats? (The Soverel 48 was reputed to have a lightweight, sturdy foam-cored hull.)

And can anyone comment on their sea motion and seaworthiness? Are either of these boats up to ocean passages?

Thanks,
Chas
