The Back Cove Yacht

The Back Cove yacht is an American- made boat out of Boston, Massachusetts. It has a spoon bow and a gently sloped transom, which indicates its Maine lobster boat heritage. The Back Cove yacht also has a deep vee hull.

There are two types of Back Cove yachts available. As might be expected the options on each of these are slightly different. There is the back cove 29 and the back cove 26. Unfortunately at the time this research was done there is no definitive information available on the Back Cove 26. For the rest of this article let�s take a look at the Back Cove 29.

There are three models of the Back Cove yacht 29. There is the open model, the hard top, and the soft-top. It has a deep vee hull with prop recess and standard trim tabs provide comfort and performance. The standard engine is a two hundred sixty horsepower, six cylinder diesel engine. It can cruise at twenty knots and up to twenty-four knots.

Another engine option for the Back Cove Yacht is the three hundred fifteen horsepower, six cylinder diesel engine reaches up to twenty nine knots comfortably. A comfortable cruising speed would be in the mid- twenties range.

The Back Cove Yacht has a cherry wood interior, a cedar lined hanging locker, and berth with fuller cushions. It has a full head (bathroom) with a shower. The galley is large with an electric stove, a fridge that is under the counter and a sink with both hot and cold water, and storage for food.
The salon has an overhead hatch with three side ports that provide comfortable ventilation. The cherry table drops down between the two settees to create a spacious berth. The cushions are stored below the forward part of the settee.

Keep in mind when you are looking at Back Cove Yachts that you have the option of an open cockpit, a hard top or soft top model. You also will have the option of two types of engines. Your choice of engines will be influenced by how you intend to use your boat.
