Bodhran is my 1979 Downeast 32 cutter which I purchased in October of 2002 and has pretty much been my obsession ever since. Bodhran is hull #130 of the 134 Downeast aka. Down East aka Downeaster 32s built in Santa Ana California by Down East Yachts LTD. These boats are not racers by any means, but offer an amazing amount of interior space, a sound hull and a salty appearance that always turns a head or two. Bodhran served as a good home for 4 years living at the dock while I was fixing her up. She’s also performed admirably on my travels down the West coast of the US, a couple of seasons in Mexico and in 2008 all the way across the Pacific to New Zealand.
