30’ Back Cove Downeast Express Model

Successor to the Back Cove 29, the Back Cove 30 is a featurerich single-diesel cruiser with the signature Down East styling common to all Back Cove models to date. The 30 is longer with slightly more beam than her predecessor with a revised interior that makes her a more comfortable cruiser. The galley-down layout is typical of most day boats her size, but appointed and finished better than most. The joinery and ceilings are varnished cherry, and teak-and-holly sole adds just the right touch of nautical elegance. Though the Back Cove 30 doesn’t include an aft wall (bulkhead), the helm deck offers comfortable seating for six and the port settee converts to an additional berth at night. Helm visibility is excellent in this boat thanks to the large windows. Thoughtful, molded-in fiberglass storage compartments are built in everywhere, including in the base for the deluxe Arrigoni helm chair. Standard features include cherry cabinets, swim platform, transom door, and an inlaid cherrywood table below. Note the deep anchor locker. Built on a foam-cored hull with moderate beam, she’ll cruise at 20 knots (25 top) with a standard Yanmar 315hp diesel. An optional 370hp Yanmar will cruise at 25 knots (about 30 top).
