Back Cove 41

The flagship of the Back Cove fleet is the 41, a cruising yacht that shouts “Made in Maine” from the lobster boat look to the American cherry wood trim interior.

The guts of the 41 include a single diesel engine paired with a straight shaft. Other pragmatic features include thrusters (bow and stern) for easy, close-quarters maneuverability, and energy-efficient heat and air conditioning systems.

The shippy exterior should elicit a tinge of pride from even the most landlubber of mariners with the narrow, sleek shape, and long foredeck of a lobster boat. But the 41 is definitely a yacht, and the cushioned seating in the cockpit and nearly all-glass cabin are signs of her recreational purpose. A swim step leads off the stern, accessed by a door built into the transom.

Immediately upon entry, the full galley sits to port, a table with family-style seating sits starboard. Ahead of the helm lies more seating in the large v-berth. Two independent staterooms, each with their own private enclosed heads, makes this a desirable two-couple or family cruiser. Sensible is a term that comes to mind.

If the good sense and Maine styling of the Back Cove 41 has caught your eye, you may want to learn more from local dealer Bellingham Yacht Sales. They can provide you more information and pricing details.
