Always on the leading edge of innovation, Back Cove Yachts has announced the 34O, and yes, “O” means Outboard. This one of a kind motoryacht is set to debut in September at the Newport Boat Show, and is already getting a lot of attention.
Though few builders have adapted the growing outboard trend to downeast-style yachts, there are several benefits to this option. The standard power option for the 34O will be twin Yamaha 350hp engines, which is projected to propel this boat at a impressive 35 knot top-speed – a 10 knot increase from the inboard model. The outboards will also offer serious efficiency, with a 300 mile range off of a 250 gallon tank.
The interior and bridge layout will follow a similar structure to the 32 Salon Express, which offers superior design and structure. A single level deck will allow for easy entertainment, with an open layout from the helm to the cockpit. The spacious salon includes a settee, dinette and ample helm space – all of which help to ensure a relaxing day on the water. An air-conditioned forward berth and a split-head design make this boat ideal for the weekend getaway.
Other standard features include a bow thruster, Sea Star steering system, 5 kilowatt generator and an optional Seakeeper gyro stabilization system.
