Back Cove

Ever been aboard a Sabre Yacht? Well, in 2003 a group of Sabre dealers saw the need for a smaller Downeast style cruising boat. Some of their clients were in awe with the style of the Maine lobster boat and were craving the fuel efficiency of the dependable single diesel engine. The sister company of Sabre Yachts went into play with the Back Cove 29 being launched and, hence, the brand BACK COVE took its place and a great place, at that, now being ranked as a leader in the industry in 30 to 41 foot cruisers!
