Back Cove Yachts signs deal with Vetus

Vetus said its Marex brand is supplying Back Cove Yachts with the bridge window system for the new Back Cove 32 and the 41.

Global marine propulsion and equipment manufacturer Vetus said its Marex brand is supplying Back Cove Yachts with the bridge window system for the new Back Cove 32 and the 41.

The Down East-style Back Cove 32 made its world debut in September at the Newport International Boat Show, where it won the Newport for New Products 2016 Award for Best Powerboat Under 35 feet.

“This is the second project we’ve done with Vetus and it went very smoothly,” Sabre Yachts and Back Cove Yachts vice president of marketing and sales Bentley Collins said in a statement.

“Right from the get-go they got all the engineering work done, very clearly and eloquently and we were very, very pleased with the fit and finish and the look of the windows. They are going to be a good partner for us.”

He also said Back Cove Yachts projects that it will build between 24 and 30 Back Cove 32s each year.

Vetus worked with Back Cove’s design and engineering departments to develop the customized window system for the new Back Cove 32. It includes a center windshield panel that opens forward, set between fixed port and starboard windshield panels. The front part of each side window also slides open to let in the breeze when desired.

“All our dealers are 100 percent satisfied with what we’ve chosen,” Collins said. “We’re thrilled with it.”
