The Back Cove Assembly Line

What takes place
on the Assembly Line at Back Cove Yachts? Here’s the scoop….

Over fifty boats
get built at Back Cove Yachts based in Rockland Maine on an annual basis. The
shop floor has two assembly lines. The Back Cove 37 occupies Line One and the
Back Cove 30 and Back Cove 34 share Line Two. 

 

Hull P-Stage

 

After the hull
and deck are built by the lamination department, they are brought over to the assembly
line where there are four bays.
The first bay is called Deck Assembly. At this point the hull is bare and the deck gets fitted with windows, hatches and
more.

Next is the Engine bay where the engine and fuel tank get installed.

The third station is called the Hull Bay. This is
where the electrical components are completed and the wood interior gets mounted to the hull.

The last bay is where the deck and hull get attached. The assembly line process, on average, takes fifty days.
