"The Back Cove 37 has a moderately fine entry—her footprint at the waterline is sharp, rather than blunt—and this produces a very good ride in a head sea by attenuating wave-impact energy more gradually..." ~ Power and Motoryachts

"Like other Back Cove models, the 37 has a single diesel engine, bow thruster combination that is more fuel efficient than many twin engine, gasoline powered, vessels of comparable size and displacement. New electronic diesels of the type installed in this and other Back Cove models are cleaner running and quieter thanks to common rail and other modern fuel injection technologies. Electronic engine and shifter controls are always smooth and predictable... With the Cummins 600hp QSC 8.3 engine she achieved a top speed of 28 knots.

The Back Cove 37 hull is a vee-style with downward turning chines forward. This allows the boat to get on plane easily, with very little bow rise. Secondary spray rails throw water down and away from the hull at speed to ensure a dry deck and windshield. Aft, the hull turns to a 16 degree deadrise and her single propeller runs in a shallow propeller pocket to reduce draft and running angle.


A slight tumble home in her aft topside sections and signature spoon- shaped bow add an elegance to her profile. The reverse transom is handsome and practical as it adds to the amount of useable space on the swim platform. Her transom door is flush mounted and opens outwards to allow for the largest possible cockpit for fishing or for socializing with friends." ~ Back Cove Yachts
