2016 Back Cove 30

Portland, Oregon


Beautiful boat! Fresh water kept since new. Nice upgrades. Up-to-date Maintenance and the only BC30 on the West Coast!

Own a like-new boat with lots of upgrades at a great price. The Back Cove brand is a very high quality Maine built vessel.  Whether day tripping on lakes and rivers or cruising the Salish Sea she is large enough for comfortable extended trips with her full galley, head/shower and comfortable sleeping accommodations. The BC30 has plenty of comfortable seating both indoor and outdoor, making it a great year-round boat. In addition to this, Kahula has a full custom cockpit enclosure and two separate heating systems. A single 320hp Yanmar provides a top speed of 28 knots and comfortable cruise speed of around 20 knots. Easy to single hand and manoeuvre the Back Cove 30 is a great boat for all areas of the PNW from the oceans to rivers and lakes.
