Downeast tradition is a winner Down Under

Styled in the timeless ‘Downeast’ tradition, the brand new Back Cove 34 is due to arrive in Australia early 2012.

An exciting evolution of the popular Back Cove 33 it replaces, the Back Cove 34 has an elegant spoon bow, broad transom and classic lines. The flared bow and performance hull make for a stable, ocean-capable vessel, while the high-tech construction methods of infusion hull and deck ensure the boat is strong, lightweight, quiet and – with its single diesel engine configuration – very economical.

The Back Cove 34 was launched in the US in August this year and already two boats have been sold ‘sight unseen’ into Australia and New Zealand – indicative of the brand’s reputation, which precedes every new model.

Emarine Australia's Jed Elderkin said whenever Back Cove created a new model it was always the 'perfect next step'.

'Back Cove has a very loyal customer base all over the world and the company takes care to communicate with owners, always applying a large amount of constructive feedback to the next generation of boats,' Mr Elderkin said.



'This means the boats evolve with genuine improvements in detail – often in little things like head height, how easy it is to get into and out of bed, elbow-room in the shower and so on... and you know you'll still get the same incredible performance and master-craftsman's quality for which Back Cove is renowned.'

Below deck the new Back Cove 34 has a large island-berth and a convertible L-settee, along with a large head with separate shower stall. Beautifully-finished timber throughout creates a warm and homely feel to offer a comfortable home-away-from-home for leisurely weekends away.

The full galley, including two drawer refrigerators located under the helm seats, is situated on the helm deck and stretches out aft of the helm position. A dining area with inlaid, solid wood table is opposite the galley where four adults can sit to enjoy a meal, drinks or card game.

The helm deck is airy and bright and features Back Cove's iconic upright windows that provide impressive all-round visibility. Overhead hatches, opening side windows and a centre-opening windshield create excellent ventilation. The whole helm deck area lifts hydraulically for easy engine access.



The aft cockpit has a large, comfortable lounge area with an L-shaped bench seat and aft-facing foldaway seat, perfect whether underway or at anchor. This area is ideal for a barbeque and has a walk-through to the aft boarding/swimming platform.

Standard power is a 380hp Cummins QSB 5.9 diesel shaftdrive, which delivers incredible range at cruising speeds and a top speed of 25kt. Other engine options (up to 480hp) are available.
