Time-hon­oured style

NT News - Motoring - - MARINE GUIDE -

THE new Back Cove 30 mo­tor yacht is set to make its Aus­tralasian boat show de­but at the Sanc­tu­ary Cove In­ter­na­tional Boat Show next month.

Ema­rine Aus­tralia, ex­clu­sive Aus­tralian im­porter of Back Cove Yachts, will have the Back Cove 30 and Back Cove 37 on show from May 19-22.

The com­pany is look­ing for­ward to an ex­tremely pos­i­tive event.

Ema­rine prin­ci­pal Jed Elderkin said he had seen an en­cour­ag­ing start to the year so far.

‘‘We’ve sold four Back Cove boats in the first two months this year so there are def­i­nitely se­ri­ous buy­ers out there,’’ Elderkin said.

‘‘Sanc­tu­ary Cove is a fan­tas­tic show and we re­ally hope 2011 will be a big one for us.

‘‘I’m al­ways ex­cited to de­but a new model at a boat show.

‘‘The first Back



We­have al­ready sold five of them . . . It’s a won­der­ful boat for this re­gion

ar­rived in Aus­tralia at the end of last year and we have al­ready sold five of them.

‘‘It’s a won­der­ful boat for this re­gion.’’

The new 30 epit­o­mises Back Cove’s mod­ern evo­lu­tion of a time-hon­oured, clas­sic style.

Pre­sent­ing a tra­di­tional spoon bow, deep vee and stylish, gen­tly slop­ing tran­som, the Back Cove 30 of­fers the el­e­gance of a tra­di­tional Maine lob­ster boat from the US.

The hull has been con­structed us­ing state-of-theart in­fu­sion tech­nol­ogy.

This gives it re­duced weight and in­creased strength, mak­ing this model even more fuel-efficient than its pre­de­ces­sor, the Back Cove 29.

In­ter­nally, the new boat fea­tures a com­fort­able V-berth, which con­verts to seat­ing around a saloon ta­ble.

The Back Cove 30 also fea- tures a fully-equipped gal­ley along with sep­a­rate head and shower.

Cock­pit space is well laid­out and the helm po­si­tion of­fers clear, all-round lines of sight.

The large sig­na­ture win­dows cre­ate a bright and airy space in the cock­pit deck.

The Back Cove 30 can reach cruis­ing speeds of around 20knots with the stan­dard 315hp diesel en­gine (up­grade avail­able).

With down­ward turn­ing chines for­ward, the boat will plane with lit­tle ef­fort.

This means it has an efficient tran­si­tion with lit­tle bow rise.

Stan­dard spec­i­fi­ca­tion in­cludes a bow thruster lend­ing to the ef­fi­ciency of the Back Cove 30 and mak­ing ma­noeu­vring sim­ple.
