Practical and elegant, Back Cove Yachts is the sister company to Sabre Yachts founded in 2003. The Back Cove name is famous for its look and feel of the Maine lobster boat and is perfect for those who admire a dependable, luxurious Downeast style cruising boat. Built by Maine’s finest boat builders, Back Cove Yachts utilizes production line methods and vacuum infusion technology making them take lead in the industry with 30’ to 41’ cruisers. Fortunately, the New England boat design quickly became the design of choice all over the USA. Although very similar to its sister company, Sabre Yachts, the Back Cove is smaller, with a single diesel engine and bow thruster, and interior fiberglass liners to simplify assembly. Dealers fell in love with the concept and thus the Back Cove 29 was born. After continuous success, seven additional models were introduced over the next 14 years.
