Back Cove 33 Hardtop Express Description

The Back Cove 33 offers tremendous value, great style and modern practicality. Below deck is a large and comfortable vee-berth, L-settee with pilot berth above and a head with stall shower. On the helm deck, a full galley stretches out aft of the helm seat and to port is a dinette where four adults can sit and enjoy a meal. The inlaid table is a fine example of the Maine boat builder's craftsmanship and tradition, evident also throughout the Back Cove 33. Forward of the dinette, a double mate's seat is a comfortable perch for the navigator. The helm deck is airy and bright with overhead hatches, opening side windows and a center opening windshield. In her cockpit a large bench seat allows comfortable lounging while underway or when anchored in a peaceful cove. Engine access is extraordinary, as the helm deck including the port side dinette, raises to expose the yacht's mechanical systems.
