From spoon bow to gently sloped transom, the design elements of the Back Cove 29 speak to her Maine lobster boat heritage. Yet below the surface is a modern Deep-V hull just waiting for her owner to push the throttle forward and to jump up onto plane. With ample room in her cockpit and comfortable amenities below, she is a yacht that will give her owners years of pleasure and immense pride of ownership, at a cost which is considerably lower than for custom boats of this type. Launched at the Newport International Boat Show in the fall of 2003, Back Cove 29s have received critical acclaim from both the yachting press and discriminating owners. In excellent condition with ALGRIP Flag Blue hull paint this is the one to see!

Original owner has all maintenance and invoices and logs. The hull was repainted in 2012 and shows like new. Excellent opportunity for her new owner!
