Can you curve a flat assembly?

I'm a graduate student new to Solidworks and I'm working on reconstructing an ancient Roman warship for some materials tests.  I figured it would be faster to assemble the hull flat and then curve it to suit my needs (as opposed to making dozens of unique pieces) but now I'm not sure how to get the assembly into the shape I want.  Any suggestions or advice would be much appreciated!  I've included a side view of the half I've assembled and a photo of the shape I need (much like a wine glass).
