If you have a large CENTER CONSOLE boat and want SPEED, LUXURY & STYLE with WEATHER PROTECTION and ACCOMODATION then this Back Cove 390 could be the boat for you. Made in the USA up in Maine this Down East style boat will give you this classic looks but she'll also provide you with the high cruising speeds that you are already use to with your previous boat. When I first saw the drawings of this model I didn't understand why Back Cove who are known for their inboard diesel shaft drive boats was doing this but now I totally understand the reasons. If you are use to high cruising speeds then why would you want to slow down for shaft drive boats? This solution with the V12's looks amazing but also functions incredibly well for so many reasons. This is American Manufacturing at it's best and generations of boating knowledge thats going into a very cool yet practical boat that will last for generations if thats what you want. This is the kind of boat that if you wanted to keep it and hand it down to your grandkids you could do that. If you're looking for high speed and to expand your area of operations on your weekends then this is a boat that will do that for you.
