Back Cove Yachts proudly presents the Back Cove Downeast 37; continuing with the same practical features, usability and low maintenance, that have built the popularity of the Back Cove brand since it’s inception in 2003.

Her interior is built in the Herreshoff style with white panels and raised wooden trim. The master stateroom offers an island berth with steps to both sides for ease of egress. Storage is plentiful with many lockers and drawers provided. At the base of the companionway and in close proximity to the helm is a functional galley with microwave oven, fridge freezer and deep stainless sink. To starboard aft of the master is an expansive head unit with separate stall shower.

On deck the purpose of the design comes into it’s own. Convertible seating is elevated so that everyone can enjoy the views. The helm deck and cockpit sole are at one level so that all of your guests can be part of the activity on board. A retractable cockpit awning covers the open aft cockpit.

Exceptional engine and equipment access is found through two large hatches in the cockpit sole.

The Back Cove Downeast 37 is the ideal platform for days on the water with family and friends.
