Originally in Sandusky Ohio from 2015-2017 (winter stored inside heated storage) and the 2018 summer and winter in Buffalo, NY. All services were done and the boat has been launched to her slip, ready for a sea trial. The boat is as good as they get, maintained by professionals and extremely clean!

Back Cove 37 Layout:
The Back Cove 37 continues with the same practical features usability and low maintenance which have built the popularity of the Back Cove brand since its inception. Starting forward in the Master Stateroom there is an Island Berth for ease of egress, and for stowage of owner's gear there are many lockers and drawers provided. To starboard aft of the Master is a full Guest cabin with double berth and plenty of storage capacity. Opposite and to port is a large head unit with separate stall shower.
Between the lower and salon sole levels, there is a Mid-Galley fully equipped with a two-burner cooktop, two-drawer Refrigerator / Freezer, a Microwave / Convection Oven, and a deep sink as well as many drawers and lockers for galley storage. An optional dedicated Stainless-Steel Freezer is conveniently located opposite the galley beneath the helm seat base. Large windows overhead give this Galley ample visibility and light.

In the Salon are twin Stidd seats for helmsman and crew. Aft of the Helm seat an L-Shaped Settee and to port a shorter Settee. A large inlaid table offers a comfortable and elegant space for dining with crew and guests. Large windows provide ample light and air while overhead a large sliding pilot hatch allows air to flow through this space. Opening to the cockpit are large swing doors which completely opens the salon to the cockpit. The fixed cockpit seating will provide the comfort you desire for socializing with guests. Engine access is extraordinary, as the salon deck raises hydraulically to expose the yacht's mechanical systems
