Eddie Lucas Reveals Which Fellow Below Deck Yachtie He Grew Up With

The Below Deck bosun has longtime ties with another familiar face. 

By Hannah Chambers

Following the Season 8 premiere, Below Deck is officially back, and with it comes the return of Eddie Lucas. The hard-working bosun first appeared in Seasons 1 through 3, taking a break from yachting to explore a different line of work. On the November 2 episode of Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen, Eddie filled us in on what he’s been up to since we last saw him, and even shared an interesting connection from long before his Below Deck beginnings. 

How to Watch

Watch Below Deck on Bravo Mondays at 9/8c and next day on Peacock. Catch up on the Bravo App.

When Andy asked Eddie if he has “been watching Below Deck, or Below Deck Med or Sailing Yacht?” the yachtie revealed, “I have watched some of it. I’ve watched Sailing. It was funny, actually. Parker [McCown] from Sailing Yacht, we grew up together.” 

“Well, somewhat,” Eddie continued, in the video above. “I’m quite a bit older than he is, but I’ve known Parker for a long time, so it was fun kind of watching him and how he handled himself on the season.”

Eddie even noted that he shared some words of wisdom with his longtime friend before Parker set sail. 

“He took none of the advice I gave him, but that’s fine,” Eddie joked.
