Manufacturer Provided Description

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.
