Back Cove 37

Norris Comer New Boats

Endurance 720Touted as “practical elegance from Maine” by the builder, Back Cove’s family of boats has been a natural fit in Pacific Northwest waters since they appeared several years ago. Enter the Back Cove 37, a modestly sized boat with big cruising plans.

For starters, there aren’t too many yachts with 42’ length overall and 13’ 3” beam with a forward master stateroom complete with gigantic island-style berth. Not only does this lend the 37 to long distance cruising for couples, but a guest berth is also available near the large head, complete with walk-in shower.

On the exterior, the 37 has that Back Cove elegance at play, somehow both new and old school at the same time. The look is sleek, partly thanks to the relatively narrow beam. Comfortable and open seating in the cockpit near the swimstep will be the natural hangout space for guests on a nice day.

The Back Cove 37 looks like a classy, smaller yacht that’s well prepared to take on big adventures. There’s a brand-new 2019 model on display at the Seattle Boat Show. For more info or pricing, contact local dealer Bellingham Yachts.
