2015 Back Cove 37 Downeast

Four Stars is a wonderful example of the Back Cove 37 Downeast! She has been lightly used as seen by her very low engine hours 192 (3/21) and her generator hours of 82 (3/21). The layout is extremely “social” with ample seating options in the pilothouse and the cockpit. The pilothouse and cockpit are on one level which only furthers the sense of the boat being very well connected. The interior feels especially open and airy with the Herreshoff style woodwork of white bulkheads and varnished teak wood trim. Back Cove really hit the mark with this model for those looking to take friends and family out for day trips. She is equipped and capable for those weekend and week long trips as well. “Practical Elegance” which is Back Cove’s tag line perfectly describes this model with her beautiful lines, layout, and amenities yet her low maintenance and fuel efficiency.
