Here is what the Power Boat Guide had to say about the Back Cove 37:

" The Back Cove 37 is an economical, low maintenance luxury yacht styled in the classic Downeast tradition. Most cruisers this size are powered with twin engines, but the 37 has a single diesel/bow thruster combination that delivers serious fuel efficiency and very impressive performance. The beautifully finished galley-up layout is ideal for two couples. An island queen bed is found in the forward stateroom, and a double berth in the (small) guest stateroom. The large head includes a stall shower. Opposite the galley are two Stidd chairs for the helmsman and guest, and aft of the helm is an L-shapped settee with adjustable table and a shorter settee opposite to port. The 37's enclosed salon is surrounded by large windows, and an overhead hatch provides ventilation. Folding doors completely open up the salon to the cockpit with its built-in seating and centerline transom door. The wide side decks on the Back Cove 37 make getting around easy and secure. Built on a foam-cored hull with moderate beam, a 480 hp Cummins QSB engine delivers a top speed of 24-26 knots. An optional 600 Cummins diesel can reach a top speed of nearly 30 knots...."  Last Tango has the 600 hp Cummins and a stern thruster.

Broker's Comments:

"Last Tango" was purchased in late 2013 from the original owner who bought her new.  She had 252 hours, now she has approximately 720 hours and has been used to cruise the Florida coast and the Keys. Her current owner has had her professionally maintained by one of the most respected "Engine Guys" in Southwest Florida and she has been Lift Kept. When the owners are in Western New York in the summer the boat is started each month and all systems are checked by the above-mentioned mechanic. 

"Last Tango" comfortably cruises at 17 knots at 2000 RPM burning 13.5 GPH according to the owner. If you really need to get there you can kick it up and do 24 Knots at about 2600 RPM according to Back Cove and Cummins.  If you just want to take it easy at 1400 RPM you are doing 9.5 knots burning 4.1 GPH...

"Last Tango" is in Excellent condition and her new owner will only need to add provisions to take off and head into the sunset.....
