Back Cove Yachts have just released another winner…the new 34! She was just shown to the public for the first time at the Maine Boats and Harbors Show last weekend….what a fantastic layout and here are some early pictures taken at the show. We love the tremendous social space in the cockpit, large swim platform and island bed.
The impressive Sabre 40 Sedan will make its much-anticipated Australian debut at next month’s Sydney International Boat Show.
To mark the occasion – and in addition to Sabre’s ‘Launch Pad’ campaign, where customers receive an iPad 2 loaded with information pertaining to the boat – those who order a Sabre 40 will receive a full suite of Garmin electronics including two GPSMAP 5215 large-screen chartplotters, a GMR 24HD radar and VHF marine radio. Valued at over $15,000, the electronics package is being thrown in for free!
Sabre Yachts’ USA-based vice president marketing and sales Bentley Collins will also attend the Sydney International Boat Show, where the new Sabre 40 is expected to generate much interest among discerning individuals looking for a unique, functional and head-turning vessel.
Built in the Maine tradition, this offshore-capable, downeast-style motor yacht boasts modern high-performance and a luxurious, handcrafted interior.
Sabre’s classic style is blended with the company’s cutting-edge build methods, such as infusion hull construction and the application of ultra-modern technology like Zeus azipod drives and Skyhook positioning system.
Zeus pod-drive propulsion uses less horsepower than traditional shaft propulsion and is significantly quieter, directing engine exhaust out through the pods under water. Coupled with the Skyhook system, this is the most advanced propulsion and positioning system available for leisure craft and the Sabre 40 was designed to include this technology from the outset. (Skyhook links GPS data to the Zeus drives for automated position holding.)
Internally, the Sabre 40 is handcrafted with warm cherrywood bulkheads, teak floorboards and elegant upholstery. Accommodation comprises a large owners stateroom, double guest cabin and a large washroom with separate shower cubicle. The fully-equipped, electric galley is positioned between the cabins and saloon deck – part of the social area but below the line of vision when underway. Space saved through the use of Zeus drives allows for long-distance cruising additions such as a washing machine, watermaker or additional storage. A 9kW generator is fitted as standard.
The saloon deck is the main social area with seating around a drop-down table, built-in entertainment systems and all-round views through large upright windows. The solid, hand-crafted cherrywood interior is continued through here along with the solid teak flooring and ultra-leather upholstery. This area opens out to a large aft cockpit with seating and room for activities and is well ventilated with opening windows and overhead hatches.
The Sabre 40 has impressive offshore capabilities through a strong hull with a deep vee and flared bow. Capable of speeds in excess of 30kt, the vessel delivers both elegance and power in equal measure whether on a coastal passage or cruising inland waterways.

The new Back Cove 30 motor yacht is set to make its Australasian boat show debut at the Sanctuary Cove International Boat Show, 19-22 May 2011.
Emarine Australia, exclusive Australian importer of Back Cove Yachts, will have both the Back Cove 30 and Back Cove 37 on show and the company is looking forward to a positive event.
Emarine principal Jed Elderkin said he had seen an encouraging start to the year so far.
“We’ve sold four Back Cove boats in the first two months this year, so there are definitely serious buyers out there,” Mr Elderkin said.
“Sanctuary Cove is a fantastic show and we really hope 2011 will be a big one for us.
“I’m always excited to debut a new model at a boat show… the first Back Cove 30 arrived in Australia at the end of last year and we have already sold five of them – it’s a wonderful boat for this region.”
The new 30 epitomises Back Cove’s modern evolution of a time-honoured style. Presenting a traditional spoon bow, deep vee and stylish, gently sloping transom, the Back Cove 30 offers the elegance of a traditional Maine lobster boat. The hull has been constructed using state-of-the-art infusion technology for reduced weight and increased strength making this model even more fuel-efficient than its predecessor, the Back Cove 29.
Internally, the new boat features a comfortable V-berth that converts to seating around a saloon table. The Back Cove 30 also features a fully-equipped galley along with separate head and shower. Cockpit space is well laid-out and the helm position offers clear, all-round lines of sight; large signature windows create a bright and airy space in the cockpit deck.
The Back Cove 30 can reach cruising speeds of around 20kt with the standard 315hp diesel engine (upgrade available). With downward turning chines forward, the boat will plane with little effort meaning an efficient transition with little bow rise. Standard specification includes a bow thruster lending to the efficiency of the Back Cove 30 and making manoeuvring simple.
