Comments & Broker’s Notes

The Back Cove Downeast 37 is ready for all your adventurous days on the water!

The interior of the Downeast 37 is built in the Herreshoff style, with white panels and raised wooden trim. The master stateroom offers an island berth with steps on both sides for ease of egress. Storage is plentiful with many lockers and drawers provided. At the base of the companionway, and close to the helm, is a functional galley with microwave oven, fridge, freezer and deep stainless sink. To starboard, aft of the master is a comfortably laid-out head unit with separate stall shower.

On deck, the purpose of her unique design comes into its own. The single-level helm deck and cockpit sole allow all of your guests to be part of the activity on board and seamlessly blend indoor and outdoor spaces. Convertible seating in the pilot house is elevated so that everyone can enjoy the views. A retractable awning covers the open aft cockpit for shade and convenience on bright days. Her unique feature is her open cockpit design, offering versatility and smooth transition between activities.
