However, modern Solos are typically available in Foam Reinforced Plastic (FRP) or composite construction (FRP hull and wood deck).Boats available for sale are best found under “Adverts” on the Solo Class website. Membership of the Solo Class Association costs £25 a year and gives a £5 discount on Solo Boat Insurance from Noble Marine, as well as three useful magazines a year and a year-book.
