Back Cove 41
Although the Back Cove 41 is built
for pleasure, there is no getting away
from its Down East workboat heritage.
Rather than shoehorn twin engines
into the boat, the 41 comes with a
single 600-hp power plant as standard.
Even so, she’s no slouch and can top 26
knots when pushed. Throttle back a bit,
and she’ll happily cruise all day at 22
knots burning a respectable 25 gallons
per hour. An island queen up forward
should keep even the most discerning
owners happy, and there’s a midships
guest double complete with its own
head for when friends come to stay.
Monte Carlo 6
Zeus pod drives are becoming increasingly common on larger powerboats.
When you eliminate the traditional
shaft and running gear, the engine room
can be smaller, opening up space on the
interior of the boat. Couple this with an
almost plumb bow, and a beam that’s
carried well forward, you end up with
the voluminous Monte Carlo 6. The
very European interior may not be for
staunch traditionalists, but the use of
chrome and leather accents makes the
boat a real stand out from many of its
contemporaries. There’s space for four
below in two large double staterooms,
with room for two more in the twin
cabin to starboard. You don’t even have
to drive this boat yourself as there is a
separate crew cabin aft, complete with
its own head, behind the engine room.

Pod drives and joy-stick controls make

up and cherry wood
trim that have become trademarks of
this Maine builder.
