2017 Back Cove 37

Hampton, Virginia



The "Downtime" is a very well equipped, well maintained Back Cove 37. Living her life in the lower Chesapeake Bay, her knowledgeable owners have spared no expense in keeping her in Bristol condition. An unfortunate lightning strike near the boat last summer necessitated her electronics being replaced, but the entire vessel was surveyed and repaired back to perfection by the local Back Cove dealer. A list of what was replaced is below. She has been cruised extensively since and is in fine condition.

Manufacturer Description

The Back Cove 37 continues the practical features that have identified the Back Cove range of down east style motor yachts: Usability, low maintenance and fuel efficiency.

In the master stateroom there is an island berth for ease of egress, and for stowage of owner's gear, there are many lockers and drawers provided. To starboard aft of the master is a full guest cabin with a pullman berth and ample storage capacity. Opposite and to port is a large head unit with separate stall shower.

Between the lower and salon sole levels, the mid-galley is fully equipped with a refrigerator, freezer, microwave oven and deep stainless steel sink as well as many drawers and lockers for galley storage. Large windows overhead provide the galley with ample visibility and light.

In the salon twin Stidd helm seats are provided for the helmsman and crew. Aft of the helm is an L-shaped settee and to port a two person love seat. An elegant inlaid table offers a comfortable space for dining with crew and guests. Large windows offer plenty of light and air while overhead a large sliding pilot hatch allows air to flow through the salon. At the aft end of the main salon large swing-bi-fold doors completely open up the salon to the cockpit. At the transom, fixed seating will provide the comfort you desire for socializing with guests.
