(SOLD) 2005 Back Cove 26 Open

New to the market, this 2005 Back Cove 26 Open is powered by a common-rail electronic diesel, the Volvo D4 260hp engine (only 220 hours). Since the inception of the 26, it has earned a reputation as an economical and quality Maine built boat while offering great interior/exterior features for short or even long-term adventures. With the amazing fuel efficient 260hp D4 Volvo, this 26 has the fuel range of 240 NM cruising at 24 knots while only burning 9.0 GPH and giving her a 2.7 NM/G. It is simply hard to find a better built boat with all the same amenities & space and as fuel efficient, and not to mention the attraction of her price and down-east beauty. She is certainly a head-turner in any harbor. Sporting a beautiful claret hull, she offers the best equipment and lots of it. You will be happy to find a bow thruster and a stern thruster, electric anchor windlass, oil changer, 1800W inverter w/ third battery in bank, Raymarine electronics, bimini top with enclosure (excellent condition), aft cockpit bench seats, swim platform, helm deck jump seats, electrically operated engine hatch, electric head & toilet system, three-wiper windshield system and more. If you wish to see her, your visit will not disappoint you. More information is available upon request.
