Back Cove 34

Our goal for the Back Cove 34 was to create a cruising yacht with the same simple features, usability and maintenance that have built the popularity of the Back Cove brand. With input from many of our current boat owners, we have created a yacht which offers tremendous value, great style and modern practicality.

Below deck is found a large and comfortable island berth and a convertible L-settee which can be isolated from the cabin with a curtain. To starboard a large head with separate stall shower. On the helm deck, a full galley stretches out aft of the helm seat and to port, a dinette that can seat four adults in complete comfort, is the perfect spot to enjoy a meal on board. Her inlaid table is a fine example of the Maine boat builder’s craftsmanship and tradition, evident throughout the Back Cove 34.

Forward of the dinette, a double mate’s seat is a comfortable perch for the navigator. The helm deck is airy and bright with overhead pilot hatches, opening side windows and a center opening windshield. A Stidd helm chair provides comfort for the helmsman underway.

In her cockpit a large, L-shaped bench seat and a fold-away aft facing seat provide comfortable lounging spots while underway or when anchored in a peaceful cove. Engine access is extraordinary, as the helm deck, including the port side dinette, lifts hydraulically to expose the yacht’s mechanical systems below.

The Back Cove 34 is the ideal couple’s cruising yacht.
