Back Cove 30 Yacht

The Back Cove 30 is the epitome of what makes Back Cove yachts so special. It starts with the head-turning appearance, eliciting thoughts of Maine’s heritage and tradition, then continues through the modern interior.

A 320-horsepower, six-cylinder diesel engine lets the Back Cove 30 cruise at 20 knots, topping out at 25 (and, with optional additional horsepower, can cruise at 25 knots), yet the maneuverability lets you navigate the docks with ease.
