2008 Back Cove 29

Baddeck, Nova Scotia


Gorgeous Flag Blue Back Cove 29. Perfect size for weekending and day cruises.

Only two owners from new and current owner has maintained her since 2012.

Nicely equipped with optional hardtop, bow and stern thrusters, anchor windlass, full electronics including radar, plotter, VHF and Autopilot.

Larger Yanmar 315hp engine with only 844 hrs use.

The back Cove 29 is a Down East lobster style boat that has been closely associated with Maine's proud boat building heritage.

The Back Cove 29 is an example of everything that makes the Down East lobster boat a work of art.

She has a traditional spoon bow and her transom is gently sloped: a style that turns head in any harbour. Below the surface she is modern and contemporary. A deep-vee hull with prop recess and standard trim tabs offers comfort and performance. 

With her upgraded Yanmar 315 horsepower, 6 cylinder diesel engine, she reaches a top end of 29 knots and will cruise very comfortably in the mid 20's. Around the docks, you will appreciate the maneuverability provided by her bow and stern thrusters.

Everywhere these boats go, dock side admirers ask about the boat and the brand....classic good looks never goes out of style.


Yacht Registry is pleased to assist you in the purchase of this vessel. This boat is centrally listed by Sunnybrook Yachts.
