Back Cove Yachts has released drawings of its first outboard-powered model, the 34O. In the company’s blog, it says the boat will make its debut at the 2018 Newport International Boat Show this fall.

The new hull is designed specifically for outboard power and offers cruise and top speeds estimated by the company at 10 knots faster than the traditional Back Cove model with a single diesel inboard.

With an LOA of 38 feet, 11 inches and a beam of 11 feet, 10 inches, the 34O will have a displacement of 17,000 pounds fully rigged with twin outboards. She has a fuel capacity of 250 gallons and can hold 60 gallons of freshwater

The cockpit and helm deck are meant for entertaining with an aft facing seat that converts into a U-shaped dinette or second berth adjacent to the helm. The standard 5kW diesel generator and cabin air conditioning keep the island berth, separate head and shower comfortable. Back Cove also wants to make sure that enthusiasts know the boat is still intended for cruising.

Sea trials are slated for August 2018 with full production beginning in September.
