Back Cove 30 adds Yanmar power option


Adding to its long history of offering Yanmar power, Back Cove Yachts chose the Yanmar 8LV-370 as an option on its popular Back Cove 30.

Yanmar is a great fit because the 8LV engine is lightweight, compact and has a great power-to-weight ratio,” Back Cove vice president of marketing and sales Bentley Collins said in a statement. “Yanmar also has an extensive international network of service dealers who support our export activities in markets such as Australia.”

The 8LV is supplied by Yanmar distributor Mack Boring and Parts Co. of Union, N.J.

Available in 320-hp and 370-hp models, the 8LV series has a dry weight of 992 pounds. The 8LV series is also EPA Tier 3-compliant.

The 8LV is the first engine to utilize Yanmar's own CAN-bus vessel control system to simplify all controls, full-color digital displays with NMEA2000 or J1939 gauge output, cabling and wiring, according to the statement.
