37' Back Cove 37
Like other Back Cove models, the 37 has a single diesel engine, bow thruster combination that is more fuel efficient than many twin engine, gasoline powered, vessels of comparable size and displacement. New electronic diesels of the type installed in this and other Back Cove models are cleaner running and quieter thanks to common rail and other modern fuel injection technologies. Electronic engine and shifter controls are always smooth and predictable. Typical cruise speeds with standard engines are in the 20 knot range and optional engines are available that will raise cruise speed to the mid-twenties. In actual sea trials the Back Cove 37 ran at 21 knots using 16 gph, achieving a very respectable 1.3 nm per gallon.
The Back Cove 37 hull is a vee-style with downward turning chines forward. This allows the boat to get on plane easily, with very little bow rise. Secondary spray rails throw water down and away from the hull at speed to ensure a dry deck and windshield. Aft, the hull turns to a 16 degree deadrise and her single propeller runs in a shallow propeller pocket to reduce draft and running angle.
A slight tumble home in her aft topside sections and signature spoonshaped bow add an elegance to her profile. The reverse transom is handsome and practical as it adds to the amount of useable space on the swim platform. Her transom door is flush mounted and opens outwards to allow for the largest possible cockpit for fishing or for socializing with friends.
The designer of the Back Cove 37 , Kevin Burns, has drawn a “space within a space” layout that conveys an open and bright feeling. Her main salon is surrounded by large windows, several opening wide to allow fresh air to flow through this luxurious space. Overhead a large pilot hatch provides additional ventilation and light. This entire area is raised to the height of the steering pedestal so as to provide the same views for helmsman, crew and guests: a proven design element of other Back Cove models which has become a major factor that purchasers refer to over and over again as their favorite thing about their Back Cove yachts.
The entry doors to the salon allow the cockpit to become a part of the social gathering on the helm deck. The port side swings open and the starboard side door bi-folds to open wide the entire aft end of the salon. Enter the main salon and find a world of luxury, light and space. To port is a two person love seat and to starboard, a full L-settee that converts for additional sleeping accommodations when needed. A high gloss inlaid table is the centerpiece of this welcoming space. A standard television is cleverly concealed in the headliner and innovative lighting systems are employed throughout. Two air conditioning/heating systems supply cool or warm air. The salon cabin sole raises on a hydraulic/electric ram to provide exceptional access to the engine compartment.
The master stateroom offers the comfort and convenience of a full sized center-island berth. Below the berth there are three very large drawers and forward of those, additional bulk storage space accessed through a hinged berth top. To port is a large cedar-lined hanging locker and to starboard a full set of drawers.
Looking forward from the salon, one sees the designer’s “space within a space” concept play out. With two steps down to the galley the crew is always a part of the scene in the salon and still retains good sight lines to the waters and the scenes passing by. This full galley with solid surface countertops and elegant cherry cabinets will provide the tools needed for great meals prepared on board. A drawer style refrigerator, convection microwave oven and ceramic cook-top are standard. In addition to the galley storage we have provided for a very large space below the helm for additional storage of provisions and gear. This space is accessed through a large hatch below the helmsman’s feet.
The guest stateroom to starboard, below the helm, offers a large Pullman style berth with bulk storage and drawers below. A pocket door provides privacy for this cabin.
Opposite the guest stateroom is the full head with stall shower. Access is available from both the passageway and from the owner’s private stateroom forward.
At the helm two Stidd seats offer great sight lines of the waters ahead and equally great comfort for the long voyages you may already be planning. A large helm pod offers space enough for all of today’s navigational electronics. The latest in switching gear simplifies electrical system management.
Her deep cockpit is a safe place to relax while underway. Sturdy hand rails help when boarding and when leaving the cockpit to go forward. Side decks are guarded by large diameter rails and and offer good footing, thanks to our diamond anti-slip pattern on deck. An additional hand rail is hidden under the hard top overhang. Anchoring procedures are a breeze thanks to the well-designed bow roller and expansive foredeck.
The wrap around seating in the Back Cove 37 cockpit will be the center of attention on family trips or evening cruises with friends. Each corner seat offers additional storage space for safety gear and ground tackle and below the cockpit sole there is a large volume of storage space for the gear that a long range cruiser would wish to bring along. Her unique entry door set opens wide to allow the cockpit to become part of the interior design.
Whether you are a long range cruiser planning the Great Loop or a day-tripper who likes to take along family and friends, the Back Cove 37 represents great value and economy for any boating lifestyle. Back Cove Yachts offers beautiful designs that are practical to use and economical to own so that boaters can fully enjoy their time on the water.
