Introduced back in 1975 the Downeaster 32 was designed by Bob Poole as a traditionally styled long range cruiser ideal for couples. She has proven to be rugged, easy to sail, and won much praise from her owners. They have sailed far and wide and at least three have circumnavigated. This gal has seen the waters of Tahiti, Mexico, and coastal California.
Evoking nostalgia and tradition, the Downeaster 32 keeps up family traits such as a long keel with a keel-hung rudder, clipper bow, and classic bowsprit.
