Back CoveRCR operates primarily in Youngstown, Buffalo and elsewhere on Lake Ontario and Lake Erie but often comes to this side of the border to represent its boat and brokerage lines. Back Cove is one of the lines it sells; since there is no Canadian dealer, they are happy to receive boaters from here.

The boats are built in Maine and reflect that maritime look admirably. The company is a sister to Sabre, a reasonably well-known brand in these waters.

Back Cove Back Cove Yachts introduced the brand new 34O (O is for Outboard) at the 2018 fall boat shows, powered by a pair of all white Yamaha 300’s (optional 350 hp Yamaha or Suzuki’s) and the result was the award for “Best New Powerboat under 35 feet”. The entirely new hull fitted with standard bow thruster and designed specifically for outboard propulsion offers cruise and top end speeds approximately 10 knots faster than the traditional single diesel Back Cove. This cockpit is meant for entertaining with an aft facing seat that converts into a helm deck U-shaped dinette or second berth. The standard diesel generator and cabin A/C below deck coupled with the spacious island berth, separate head and shower remind us that this Back Cove is still intended for cruising.

RCR LogoRCR often says that some of its happiest customers are Back Cove owners.  And now offers two Back Cove choices in the popular 32-34' size range with the addition of their latest models, the diesel-powered 32 and now the 34o, with twin outboards.  Accommodations are the same for both models but the owners may choose which type of cruising suits them best.  The 32 offers longer range and fuel economy and the 34o provides more speed, hitting just over 40 knots. 

The production line is up and running and with over thirty 34O hulls on order, it is already a runaway success. RCR is a long time Back Cove dealer and has a 30 & 32 in stock and a couple of those 34Os on order, one already sold.

Shrink Wrap2020 is a year of change – self-isolation, social distancing, quarantine, and working remotely have become the norm. For many, this has been a bitter pill to swallow. Another bitter pill for boaters is the delay of the season. Provincial laws differ – so terms like ‘essential’ aren’t translating widely across the marine world.

In BC, marinas remain open and fuel is available, sometimes with conditions. In Ontario, marinas, boat launches, yacht clubs and the professionals that service the marine industry aren’t considered essential, unless the service and location allows a person to access their permanent residence only accessible by boat.

KingstonBy Amy Hogue

Cruise into the city of Kingston, Ontario, and it will quickly become clear that this city and surrounding waterways have something special. Built around the northern shore of Lake Ontario, Kingston is the place to go if you love to explore new waterways, fantastic views, and exceptional boating opportunities.

Sitting at the intersection of three world-class Canadian bodies of water, Lake Ontario, the St. Lawrence River, and the UNESCO World Heritage Site, the Rideau Canal (Cataraqui River from Kingston to Newboro), the water’s influence is deeply woven into Kingston’s culture and history.
