Back Cove Yachts will update their ultra-popular Back Cove 37 inboard Downeast cruising yacht and re-launch as the new Back Cove 372.
The Back Cove 37 was launched in 2009 and has enjoyed an eleven-plus-year uninterrupted run resulting in more than 200 hulls. When the production molds for the Back Cove 37 finally gave out in 2020 due to boatbuilding wear-and-tear, the Back Cove Design team seized the opportunity to reexamine the 37 with over a decade of owner feedback and recent design advancements in mind. The result was a boat full of fresh details that earned its own designation – enter the newly redesigned Back Cove 372.

Building upon the most popular elements of the Back Cove 37, the Back Cove 372 will feature several large-scale redesigns and upgrades, alongside many smaller options and improvements. The highlights include:
- A more efficient 24V DC electrical system with less copper weight, resulting in both a lighter boat and increased run time on the bow and optional stern thrusters.
- Cummins QSC 8.3 600hp diesel engine with a 7" display as standard and a Volvo Penta D8 diesel with a 7" Garmin display as an option. This adjustment is the direct result of owner preference, with more than 95% of Back Cove 37 owners opting for a larger-than-standard engine since 2009.
- Black windshield liner and an upholstered helm pod reduce dangerous and distracting glare at the helm.
- Fixed-glazed pilothouse windows replace difficult-to-operate sliding windows, offer enhanced sightlines, and are complemented by a center-opening windshield with opening appliances for smoother operation.
- A new aft-facing cockpit seat to starboard, complete with a folding armrest and drink holder, paired with a new salon door to port with a bi-fold window to starboard (above the aft-facing seat).
- A reconfigured head with expanded medicine cabinet, sizeable over-sink mirror, and redesigned shower stall.
- An upgraded SidePower SE 100 bow thruster will increase control and precision over the original SE 80 series.
In late July of 2021, the Back Cove Production Team installed the deck on the first Back Cove 372. See a video of the process here.
