The Back Cove 29 is notable in that she was the first of what soon became a series of Back Cove models produced in recent years by Sabre Yachts. With her Down East lines and single diesel power, the Back Cove 29 combined beauty and simplicity at a price competitive with similar Down East boats her size from other manufacturers. Built on a modified-V with Divinycell coring and a prop pocket to reduce the shaft angle, her modest 2-foot 6-inch draft allows the 29 to operate in unusually shallow water. At the semi-enclosed helm, sliding side windows and an opening center windshield section provide ventilation on hot days. Storage boxes are beneath both helm chairs, and an L-lounge to port on the bridge deck seats three. Note that a center hatch in the bridge deck Lifts at the touch of a switch for easy engine access.
Below, the Back Cove’s well-appointed cabin is accented with cherry cabinets, ash ceiling strips, and a teak-and-holly sole. The galley is to port, head to starboard, and the V-berth is forward—practical accommodations indeed for two adults. Wide side decks are a plus, and so are the sturdy bow rails. The BE WELL II has both bow & stern thrusters for ease of docking. Cruise efficiently at 20 knots with top speeds 26–27 with the single Yanmar 315hp diesel inboard.
On deck, inside the fully enclosed air-conditioned Pilothouse has opening port and starboard windows, a windshield with a center opening window, overhead hatches, and the aft sliding door to the cockpit, keeping the Pilothouse comfortable in all-weather. The adjustable helm seat with matching companion seat sits on a raised bridge for good sightlines, with a molded fiberglass instrument pod and a destroyer-style stainless adjustable tilt wheel. A tall, aluminum-frame windshield wraps around the helm for weather protection. The large cockpit has room for an L-shaped settee and an accompanying ice chest, as well. Engine access is below the pilothouse deck with electronically raised hatch. The accommodations are of Yacht Quality and provide ample comfort for day cruising, overnighting and cruises of longer duration, including air-conditioned interior cabin with berths for two, hanging locker, capable galley, electric head, and hot/cold shower.
