The Carver 42 hull planes easily and exhibits exceptional tracking ability. The fine entry, three quarter length keel, innovative shape of the running bottom and location of the center of gravity all contribute to the superior performance of this vessel. The planning surface of the hull has parallel buttocks and slopes up ad it runs aft. The wide chines are parallel to the waterline, causing the chines to widen significantly as they run aft. the chines measure two feet wide at the transom, providing extra initial stability. To eliminate bow spray a second was designed into the hull to deflect the bow wave out.

Hull construction begins with a fully cured gel coat of 15 mil thickness. Hand layup method of construction guarantees the proper fiberglass to resin ration, assuring consistent laminate strength throughout. The hull is made up of several 1 1/2 random strand mat and 24 oz woven roving fiberglass. Generous overlap of the layers in the keel and chines increase hull strength, impact resistance and overall integrity. The stringer system is 100percent fiberglass re-enforced with aluminum in the engine room. The stringer system is a one piece grid network bonded to the solid fiberglass hull bottom. The hull sides have balsa core above the waterline, providing stiffness resulting in a structure that is incredibly strong with minimum weight.
