2025 Back Cove 34O Hardtop Express

location icon Portland, Connecticut
Year 2025
Length 34 ft


Back Cove Yachts introduces the brand new 34O, powered by a pair of Mercury 400's. The entirely new hull fitted with standard bow thruster and designed specifically for outboard propulsion offers cruise and top end speeds approximately 10 knots faster than the traditional single diesel Back Cove. This cockpit is meant for entertaining with an aft facing seat that converts into a helm deck U-shaped dinette or second berth. The standard 5kw diesel generator and cabin A/C below deck coupled with the spacious island berth, separate head and shower remind us that this Back Cove is still intended for cruising. 




Petzold’s Marine Center, headquartered in Portland, CT is located at mile marker 99 along the scenic CT River.  We also have satellite offices in Norwalk, Connecticut and Warwick, Rhode Island.


We are proud to represent Boat Sales and Service for New and Used Sabre & Back Cove Yachts, Regal boats,  EdgeWater power boats, Sylvan pontoon boats, Starcraft deck boats, Chris Craft Boats and Sea Fox boats.
