(SOLD) 2011 Back Cove Hard Top Express



This BC30 has just come to market, as the owner is looking to move up.   Fuel efficient, quiet and clean running with her upgraded 370 hp Volvo D6 engine. Functional galley, V-berth, plenty of storage. Large windows on the helm deck with elevated seating makes everyone enjoy the view along the way.

Serendipity's original and only owner thoughtfully built the boat with a great equipment list and beautiful finishing touches.  She offers a complete Garmin package with a 7212 display, a 4 kW open array radar, black box sounder, VHF 300, AIS 600 Transeiver, GXM weather, SAT Radio, and even a Simrad AP 24 autopilot.  The entertainment was upgraded to have a Fusion stereo with zone control, two remotes, speakers in cockpit, helm deck and cabin, and integrated to the optional flatscreen and DVD player in the cabin.

The following options were included during the factory build:

*Upgrade to Volvo 370

*4kW Fisher Panda Generator

*Air conditioning in the cabin 9K BTU

*Air conditioning at the helm deck 16K BTU

*Stern thruster

*Inverter 1800W

*Upgrade helm seat to Stidd 

*Helm deck trim package

*Insulalted cockpit seat for cooler

*Saltwater washdown

*Anchor Windlass

*Oil changing system

*Helm deck and cabin upgraded to Ultraleather

The swim platform was finished with teak decking, and rich fabrics were chosen for the interior and exterior fabrics.   Custom canvas covers were made for cockpit seats, flag staffs, side windows as well as a very functional canvas back drop for the helm deck.

Serendipity shows as new. Easily seen right outside our office door in Glen Cove, New York.
