The first Back Cove 34 is set to arrive in Australia in the first week of January 2012.
With the new owner keen to enjoy the best of summer cruising, there will be limited viewing availability of the new model – around mid-January only. Interested parties are encouraged to make an appointment now so they don’t miss-out.
Launched in August this year, the new Back Cove 34 is an exciting evolution of the popular Back Cove 33 it replaces. The manufacturer incorporates in-depth feedback from existing owners into each new design meaning new models are built to meet the evolving needs and expectations of its customers.
Emarine Australia’s Jed Elderkin said there was a lot of interest in the new Back Cove 34, with two boats already sold ‘sight unseen’ into Australia and New Zealand.
“I think 2011 has shown a significant shift to a demand for absolute quality in Australian boating,” Mr Elderkin said. “Back Cove’s popularity has continued to grow as this is exactly what the marque delivers – quality and value.
“While the immediate viewing opportunity for the new Back Cove 34 is limited, the US factory always welcomes customers to see the boats being built any time… so it’s only limited by geography!”
The new Back Cove 34 has an elegant spoon bow, broad transom and classic lines. The performance hull makes for a fast, ocean-capable vessel that planes at 10kt and cruises comfortably at 20kt. High-tech construction methods, including hull and deck infusion, ensure the boat is strong, lightweight, quiet and economical.
Below deck the new Back Cove 34 has a large island-berth and a convertible L-settee, along with a large head with separate shower stall.
The full galley, including two drawer refrigerators located under the helm seats, is situated on the helm deck and stretches out aft of the helm position. A dining area with inlaid, solid wood table is opposite the galley.
The helm deck is airy and bright and features Back Cove’s iconic upright windows that provide impressive all-round visibility. Overhead hatches, opening side windows and a centre-opening windshield create excellent ventilation.
The aft cockpit has a large, comfortable lounge area with an L-shaped bench seat and aft-facing foldaway seat.
Standard power is a 380hp Cummins QSB 5.9 diesel shaftdrive, which delivers impressive cruising range and a top speed of 25kt. Other engine options (up to 480hp) are available. The whole helm deck area lifts hydraulically for easy engine access.
