Back Cove 34 Hardtop and Back Cove 30 Hardtop

To complete the Back Cove line of “downeast” design diesel powered yachts, there is a Back Cove 37 and most recently the Back Jack Paddy 2Cove 41 was just introduced to the market. The down east style evolved from the working boats of the rugged Maine coast where seafarers needed strong and seaworthy boats to safely see them in and out of their home ports.  Today these yachts are built with a traditional look, modern design mandates and the latest technologies. All Back Cove are diesel powered.  We feel that they are the perfect boat for conditions on Georgian Bay.

They have all been exceptional yachts, but this is the one I would most want to own myself. It’s a personal choice and a matter of taste as to whether you would prefer to have a sedan express model or a flybridge but in my opinion, the flybridge layout offers some wonderful attributes.

We met with Neptunus Managing Director Jan Willem De Jong this past fall to take the new Neptunus 650F out in Lake Ontario.
