2011 Back Cove Express

Georgetown, Maine


2011 Back Cove 30 - Very clean, and very well optioned. 

The style of the Down-East lobster boat is closely associated with Maine's proud boat building heritage. The Back Cove 30 is a grand 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 will turn heads in any harbor she enters. 

Below the surface, she is modern and contemporary. A resin infused, deep-vee hull with prop recess and standard trim tabs offers a quiet and comfortable ride. Equipped with her upgraded Volvo 370hp diesel, she will cruise in the mid 20 knot range and top out near 28 knots.  Around the docks, you will appreciate the maneuverability provided by her bow and stern thruster.  Her deck hardware is as rugged as the coastline she calls home.
