Yes, You Can Really Charter Below Deck Med ’s New Superyacht, Home

Renting or buying Season 7’s new vessel won’t come cheap though.

"Home", the new yacht from 'Below Deck: Mediterranean' is available to rent or buy.

When Captain Sandy Yawn and her all-new crew set sail on Below Deck Mediterranean Season 7, they’ll be in uncharted territory aboard a new superyacht, Home . While cruising the pristine waters of Malta, Captain Sandy was working for the first time on the 163-foot motor yacht, which Bravo described as a “complex hybrid vessel” that the Below Deck Med vet found to be “more unpredictable to navigate.” As the show’s Season 7 trailer previewed, Home won’t make it through the charters entirely unscathed either: In one clip, Captain Sandy laments that she hit something for the first time in her career, while another scene teases a potential “crashing” incident.

Rest assured that there weren’t any serious accidents because Home is currently available for charter in the Caribbean region at a cost ranging from $245,000 to $273,000 per week , depending on the season. Meanwhile, Home — the first diesel-electric motor yacht to appear on Below Deck — is also listed for sale with an asking price of just over $30.8 million. Per the listings, the superyacht, which Dutch shipyard Heesen built in 2017, sleeps up to 12 guests in six cabins and features contemporary, “Ibiza-style” decor. Among Home ’s many amenities are a large sun deck, jacuzzi, swim platform, air-conditioned gym, and sky lounge.

Home also sleeps up to 10 crew members. In Below Deck Med Season 7 , that includes Captain Sandy, returning Season 6 deckhand Mzi “Zee” Dempers, and newcomers: chief stew Natasha Webb, chef Dave White, bosun Raygan Tyler, stews Natalya Scudder and Kyle Viljoen, and deckhands Storm Smith and Jason Gaskell. Following her involvement in Hannah Ferrier’s mid-Season 5 firing, Malia White cited a scooter accident and pending exams — not fan backlash — as her reasons for not returning for Season 7. (“It’s not that I might never come back to the show,” Malia told Showbiz Cheat Sheet in May. “I’m just not on the next season.”)

Season 7’s “new boat with new department heads” might bring Captain Sandy some challenges during her “first time ever in Malta,” but she’s naturally ready to face them all head-on. The network also told viewers to expect “outrageous costumes, wild nights out, and some major inter-departmental drama,” which “doesn’t even cover what the charter guests are going to bring in the new season.”

As always, expect plenty of romance at sea, too. As Bravo’s first look teased, “boatmances” will be a major topic of conversation this season, including flirtations between Natalya and Storm, as well as several questions about the true nature of Natasha and Dave’s relationship. There could even be a fling between a crew member and a charter guest, too. Though Bravo is premiering the series on July 11, Peacock subscribers can access new Below Deck Med Season 7 episodes a week early beginning July 4.

Fans can also experience Home for themselves off-screen — but it will cost way more than their monthly cable bills.

'Below Deck Mediterranean' Season 7 is going to be like no other seasons we have seen before. Aside from the usual crew drama, and erratic guest demands, get ready to watch Captain Sandy Yawn tackle a 163-foot motor yacht "Home" for the first time on the pristine waters of Malta.

Home, which will be the first diesel-electric motor yacht to be featured on 'Below Deck' franchise has been described as "a complex hybrid vessel" by Bravo. This "complex hybrid vessel" definitely stands up to its description as the trailer reveals Captain Sandy complaining about hitting the vessel against something for the first time in her career, and in another scene we see a crash being teased. But putting these mishaps aside, like all the other yachts featured in the Bravo franchise , Home, is no different when it comes to boasting high-end technology and amenities, that will leave the guests in awe during their luxury vacation. If you're curious to know how much it costs to charter Home, then we got you covered.

How much does it cost to charter 'Below Deck Med's luxury yacht Home?

It should come as no surprise that the cost of chartering the luxury superyacht is pretty steep. According to Boat International , the cost of chartering Home ranges from $245,000 to $273,000 per week. The luxury superyacht is also listed for sale at an asking price of  €29,500,000, which Bustle estimated at just over $30.8 million. According to the listing, Home was built by the Dutch shipyard- Heesen in 2017. 

The motor yacht can comfortably accommodate up to 12 guests in its six cabins. The interiors feature a simple yet contemporary Ibiza-style decor that was designed by Cristiano Gatto. Some of the amenities aboard Home include a large sun deck, jacuzzi, swim platform, air-conditioned gym, and sky lounge.

Who owns 'Below Deck Med's luxury yacht Home?

According to SuperYachtFan , Home is owned by Harald McPike. The yacht is legally owned by a company named New Life Ltd. New Life is also the name of his previous yacht: a 28 meters Lazarra 92 LSX. He used to live on board this yacht, before buying the Heesen Home. The 50-metre Home was built by Dutch shipyard Heesen in 2017 as a 'home away from home' for her owner. 

Harald is a Bahamas-based Austrian billionaire and a part-owner of Starling Bank. He is the founder of the Bahamas-based investment fund QuantRes. He is married to Joann McPike, the founder of Think Global School. The couple has a son named Alexander McPike together.

His net worth has been estimated to be around $1 billion.

Since 2013, Below Deck has been captivating TV audiences across the globe by offering a voyeuristic peek into life on board multi-million dollar luxury charter yachts . Taking readers behind the scenes, YachtCharterFleet identifies the yachts featured on the show, as well as those which have appeared on the celebrated spin-off series Below Deck: Mediterranean , Below Deck: Sailing , Below Deck: Down Under and the latest iteration, Below Deck: Adventure .

Bravo’s hit reality TV series Below Deck chronicles the lives of crew members who work and reside aboard a luxury yacht during the charter season.

Each season features a different crew configuration, and the episodes show how the crew members interact and deal with personal issues alongside their working lives. The seasons are filmed over six weeks, with every episode featuring a new group of charter guests.

Getting even closer to these Below Deck superstars, we take a look at each of the stand-out features of every yacht that has appeared on the show.

Below Deck (US)

Many crew members are recurring on the show;  the longest-standing is Captain Lee Rosbach, who been on the show since 2013. A fan favourite, he has been at the helm of every yacht on Below Deck and seen a number of different crew formations.

The latest Below Deck season 10 is rumoured to be his final swan song, although his legacy on the show is such that whoever replaces him will have very big shoes to fill.

Among the crew members, Chief Stewardess Kate Chastain was an integral member of the team from season two to season seven. Alongside her, Chef Ben Robinson was a permanent fixture of the crew from season one to season four, before stepping out for season five.

Throughout the course of the show, the yachts have played an important role. 

Hiring a Below Deck yacht will cost from €140,000 per week - and that price doesn't include expenses such as fuel. While some of the yachts were given an alias over the course of filming, their real names can now be revealed below; as well as the exact cost to rent them.

The largest yacht in the show's history, the 10th and 11th seasons of Below Deck  are set around the Caribbean islands of St Lucia  and Grenada onboard the luxurious 60m (197ft) superyacht ST DAVID . Delivered in 2008 by Italian shipyard Benetti, the yacht has an impressive sleek, supercar-inspired profile that instantly turns heads. 

Onboard highlights include her well-appointed sundeck with sunloungers and sunpads where guests can kick back and relax, a spa pool and her al fresco cinema screen set up for unforgettable movie nights.

One of the yacht's most distinctive features is her sophisticated spiral staircase that leads through all three decks and is lit by a skylight in the spa pool of the sun deck. The yacht is very versatile for a variety of charter party configurations, with room for 12 guests across six elegantly appointed cabins.

Below deck charter yacht MY SEANNA

Making an appearance on seasons 9, 8 and 6 of Below Deck , the majestic motor yacht STARSHIP (known on the show as MY SEANNA) is a yacht charter favorite.

The yacht has traveled far and wide for the show cruising to the jaw-droppingly beautiful St Kitts and Nevis in season 9, the sun-kissed Caribbean in season 8 and the  South Pacific  islands of  Tahiti in season 6.

Known for being among one of the most opulent yachts on the charter market due to her ornate interiors and glossy fittings that have been brushed in 22-carat gold, it is safe to say that this yacht is one of the most opulently styled and extensively equipped yachts on the water. Refitted in 2021, the Delta Marine yacht can accommodate 12 guests across 6 cabins and is extremely versatile for a variety of yacht charter party configurations.

VALOR (aka BG)

Appearing three times on the hit show, the 47m (153ft) charter yacht BG (known on the show as VALOR) featured in seasons 7, 5 and 4 of Below Deck , taking charter guests to a variety of sun-kissed and beautiful locations. The yacht's real name is BG, and she was built in 1990 by the world's most revered shipbuilder Feadship . Since then, she has undergone many interiors refreshes to keep her in tip-top condition. 

The yacht traveled around Thailand in Season 7  where the crew and viewers were treated to a truly memorable South East Asian experience. From the iconic Phi Phi Islands to the beautiful beaches of Ko Yao Yai, there were plenty of fascinating landmarks to see on the way. Season 5 took viewers to the tranquil cruising grounds of  Saint Martin whilst season 4 saw M/Y BG in the glistening waters of the  Virgin Islands .

Accomodating 12 guests across 6 cabins, she is also capable of carrying up to 10 crew onboard to ensure a relaxed luxury yacht charter experience.

luxury motor yacht STAY SALTY

Season 3 of Below Deck was announced after a hugely successful second-season finale, which was the highest-rated episode of the series. The new season saw the crew head to the Bahamas onboard  superyacht STAY SALTY  known on the show as EROS. 

She is equipped with an array of luxurious amenities including an eight-person sundeck Jacuzzi, barbecue and yacht-wide sound system. She also boasts timeless interior styling with intricate wood panelling and a neutral colour palette which helps create an inviting atmosphere for those on board.

The yacht was sold in November 2013 - just before filming for season 3 began - for an asking price of $17.9 million.

Premiering in August 2014, season 2 of Below Deck returned with 13 episodes documenting life on board the slightly smaller superyacht STAR DIAMOND in the British Virgin Islands . Among many other features, the yacht is equipped with a large sundeck, outdoor bar and luxury accommodation for 10 guests.

After filming the series, M/Y STAR DIAMOND was sold for an asking price of $10.9 million and is now on the charter market with a charter rate of $160,000/week. Extensively refit in 2022, the work on the superyacht has included a complete interior refresh, the yacht now features light, modern styling - an engine rebuild and a cabin conversion.

Superyacht charter yacht BARENTS

The first season of Below Deck premiered on 1 July 2013 after being announced in April 2012. Chartering around the Caribbean , the starring superyacht was named HONOR for the show but chartered under the name CUOR DI LEONE which translates to ‘Lion Heart’ in Italian. She now goes by the name BARENTS . 

Built by Italian shipyard Benetti in 1999 and refit in 2021, the famous vessel has undergone a complete makeover, bringing her up to modern standards. She can accommodate up to 12 charter guests and features luxury amenities for guests to enjoy including state-of-the-art TVs and a sundeck Jacuzzi.

Following the show, superyacht BARENTS was sold for around $15 million and her new owner commissioned a major refit. A great deal of money was spent on updating her interior with a classic-modern style of design as well as on brand-new exterior furniture and entertainment systems.

Below Deck: Mediterranean

Following on from the success of Below Deck , the spin-off  Below Deck: Mediterranean premiered in May 2016. While the original series takes place during the winter charter season when the Caribbean is at its peak, Below Deck: Mediterranean is filmed during the summer charter season.

Season one of Below Deck: Mediterranean saw Captain Mark Howard at the helm, but the baton was passed to Captain Sandy Yawn from two onwards. Chief Stewardess Hannah Ferrier was another permanent fixture on the show from season one to five, before leaving the show in season six.

As its name suggests, the show is based in the Mediterranean , the world’s most popular yachting hub from May to October. Despite the change in location, the same format and accompanying on-water antics from the crew and guests alike can be expected. Below, all the names of the superyachts which have appeared on the show, and the cost to rent them.

Season 8 of Below Deck: Mediterranean was aired in September 2023 and brought back yet more antics that included some tense franchise firsts. Set in the Ligurian Riviera, the hit Bravo series returns to Italy for the first time since season 3. The series followed the crew from mid-August until mid-September of 2022 onboard the 180-feet superyacht MUSTIQUE .

Holding up to 12 guests across 6 classically decorated cabins, this yacht is the epitome of elegance with its glossy mahogany paneling and cream upholstery. She is replete with water toys, including kayaks, a seabob, waterskis, and Zapata Flyboards, and has expansive deck areas– offering plenty of scope for both crew and guest antics which make Below Deck: Mediterranean so entertaining.

Season 7 of Below Deck: Mediterranean returned to the screens in July 2022 and brought back more drama and wealthy clientele, creating endless entertainment for viewers at home. Set in Malta , a destination never seen before on the show, the series followed the crew over an eight-week charter season onboard the 49m (160ft) superyacht HOME .

Accommodating up to 12 guests across 6 beautifully decorated staterooms, this yacht is described as a home away from home, the perfect platform for guests to soak up the sunshine, kick back and relax. From her convivial sundeck setup replete with a Jacuzzi and glowing cocktail bar to her panoramic sky lounge and state-of-the-art water toys, this yacht certainly had the wow factor that was required for Below Deck: Mediterranean .

Below Deck Lady Michelle Charter yacht

Season 6 of Below Deck: Mediterranean premiered in June 2021 and saw a new vessel,  motor yacht LADY MICHELLE , since re-named NEXT CHAPTER, take center stage. It also saw the return of Captain Sandy and Bosun Malia, plus a brand new crew. 

A floating paradise that turns heads on the water, this heavenly Benetti vessel comfortably accommodates 12 guests across 6 sumptuous staterooms, with additional capacity for up to 12 crew members. She also boasts an open-air cinema, a split-level owner's suite and an impressive array of water toys.

This season takes the crew to one of the most idyllic cruising grounds in the East Mediterranean : Croatia . Abounding with serene golden beaches, crystalline waters and gorgeous coves to explore, it's one of the most popular yacht charter destinations.

Charter yacht The Wellesley

Season 5 of Below Deck: Mediterranean premiered in the summer of 2020. The show was shot on board the motor yacht THE WELLESLEY , and the superyacht was given the alias THE WELLINGTON over the course of filming. 

The yacht has an elegant 1920's theme, with a chic club lounge complete with a bespoke humidor. She features plenty of marble accents and ample alfresco deck areas, as well as a jacuzzi with innovative spill pool features.

The yachties set course for Spain for this season, cruising around the azure waters of the Balearic Islands . The homeport was Port Adriano on the island of Mallorca .

Featuring in both Season 4 and Season 2 of Below Deck: Mediterranean ,  superyacht SIROCCO  is a yacht charter sensation. An elegant and sophisticated Heesen -built motor yacht, she features plenty of alfresco sunning areas and an 8-person jacuzzi pool; the perfect spot for the charter guests to unwind after a long day exploring.

Season 4 took the crew to one of the most iconic destinations in the Mediterranean ; the South of France . Between the luxury yachting hub of Monaco to the beautiful beaches in St Tropez , this season promises lashings of glitz and glamour. During Season 2 of Below Deck: Mediterranean , M/Y SIROCCO cruised the picturesque waters of  Croatia .

Premiering in 2018, season 3 of  Below Deck: Mediterranean saw familiar and new faces head to the sublime cruising grounds of Italy. This time, the crew treated their discerning guests to a world of luxury on board the 54m/178ft motor yacht TALISMAN MAITON .

Built in 2006 and refit to an exacting standard in 2016, the yacht boasts a range of exciting features that make her particularly appropriate for the waters of the Amalfi Coast . Indeed, her entertainment options range from a stunning selection of water toys to a sundeck Jacuzzi and a refreshingly modern interior.

Ionain Princess season 1 Below Deck Mediterranean

Premiering on 3 May 2016, the very first season of Below Deck: Mediterranean , a spin-off of the increasingly popular franchise, took to viewers' screens. This time the ‘yachties’ took care of their guests onboard the motor yacht IONIAN PRINCESS  in the Mediterranean  destination of Greece . 

The starring yacht IONIAN PRINCESS was delivered from Christensen in 2005 and was later refit in 2016 and again in 2021. Truly opulent, she bears interiors that are sleekly finished with a range of warmly toned woods and plenty of comfortable furnishings. She also boasts one of the largest sundecks for a yacht of her size.

Below Deck: Mediterranean Season 1 yacht IONIAN PRINCESS is not currently available for private yacht charter vacations.

Below Deck: Sailing Yacht

This is the first time the Below Deck franchise branched away from gleaming motor yachts, with the various weather issues that sailing yachts have to contend with adding even more drama and excitement.

The design of luxury sailing yachts  also creates far more confined crew areas than we are used to seeing on the original Below Deck . In general, sailing yachts tend to feature smaller galleys, compact stew stations and cramped crew quarters which are in closer proximity to the guests’ living areas, putting crew under increased pressure to deliver their signature silver service.

Below Deck Sailing Yacht Season 3

In addition, deck crew are placed in a far more demanding role, with sailing yachts requiring increased accuracy and precision to safely maneuver and plenty of deck duties taking place in the midst of guest areas.

An iconic and suitable yacht for the much-loved series Below Deck: Sailing , the 54m (177ft) sailing yacht PARSIFAL III has blessed our screens for all four series of the hit maritime show.

Season 1 saw the sailing yacht cruising around the beautiful islands of Greece , an  East Mediterranean destination that is peppered with an incredible variety of islands. Season 2 was set around the glistening waters of Croatia and in  Season 3 of Below Deck Sailing , M/Y PARSIFAL III came back to where she traditionally charters in the beautiful Balearic island of Menorca . For the latest Below Deck: Sailing Yacht season she ventured around the glittering coastline of Sardinia .

The yacht can comfortably charter up to 12 guests across 5 luxurious cabins with a layout comprising a master suite, two double cabins and two twin cabins.

Below Deck: Down Under

Venturing to the mesmerizing Whitsunday islands in Australia , the much-beloved maritime show released another spin-off of the hit show in April 2022, Below Deck: Down Under . Recorded on Queensland's shores, viewers can see for themselves the impeccable Australian islands and all their beauty as the superyachts, their crew and charter guests travel to some of the most sought-after destinations in the world.  


Charter yacht NORTHERN SUN

Below Deck: Down Under  returns to our screens for its second outing, this time on board the 51m (167ft) explorer yacht NORTHERN SUN , with the coastal paradise of Cairns in Australia’s northern Queensland providing the glittering backdrop.

Headed up once more by the handsome Captain Jason Chambers, he is joined by returning chief stewardess, Aesha Scott, along with a brand new crew, including Chef Tzarina Mace-Ralph, Bosun Luke Jones and stews Laura Bileskaine and Margot Sisson.

Promising another round of crew antics and high drama, the bulk of the action takes place on board the classic explorer yacht, primed for adventure and boasting a wealth of luxurious amenities and an eye-catching exterior, charter guests will be in for a treat.

Keri Lee III or Thalassa from Below Deck Down Under

The perfect yacht for season 1 of Below Deck: Down Under , the 55m (181ft) yacht KERI LEE is the prime candidate for anyone looking for a taste of the superyacht lifestyle. Described as being like Downton Abbey on a boat, the yacht is home to an expansive beauty salon, massage room, gym, jacuzzi and movie theater, so there is definitely enough to keep all charter guests entertained.

In the first season of Below Deck: Down Under , this yacht traveled to some pretty spectacular destinations from the Great Barrier Reef , including the Whitsunday's , Hook Island, Block Reef and Henning Island, giving charter guests the opportunity to witness the outstanding beauty and clear waters of the Pacific .

Below Deck: Adventure

Airing its inaugral season at the end of 2022, Below Deck: Adventure brings more drama than ever before as the show takes viewers beyond the deck and off the yacht as thrill-seeking charter guests embark on a range of extreme and unforgettable experiences around the Norwegian Fjords. Some of the activities include paragliding, exploring unique caves and taking extreme helicopter rides, Below Deck: Adventure provides endless entertainment as well as giving viewers a glimpse of the astonishingly beautiful landscapes in and around  Norway . 

In  Below Deck: Adventure season 1, Capt. Kerry Titheradge leads the crew with Jessica Condy as Chef and Faye Clarke as Chief Stew.

As seen in season 1 of Below Deck Adventure , the 49m (164ft) motor yacht MERCURY is a high-quality and highly reliable Dutch-built luxury charter yacht. Delivered by Amels in 2001, the yacht is to the highest standard and pedigree and boasts a wealth of convivial spaces, perfect for relaxing, unwinding and socializing onboard. 

Home to an impressive array of amenities, standout highlights include an expansive Jacuzzi, a large swim platform for easy access to the water and a gym. An advanced stabilization system on board reduces the side-to-side roll of the yacht and promises guests exceptional comfort levels at anchor or when underway.

Thalassa from the first season of Below Deck Down Under is the series’s second-most-expensive yacht. Originally christened Keri Lee III , the 181-foot superyacht was launched by U.S. shipyard Trinity Yachts in 2001 and refitted in 2016. In addition to meticulous craftsmanship and high-end finishes, she showcases six elegant cabins, a beauty salon, a massage room, a gym, a Jacuzzi, and a movie theater. She is reportedly worth $27 million, according to Rightboat.

That’s not the only fleet member Trinity has in the top five, either. The 161-foot Eros , known as Stay Salty IRL, claimed third spot with an estimated value of $23 million. Delivered by the U.S. yard in 2008, the vessel received a meticulous refit just before starring Below Deck Season 3 to ensure she was up to snuff.

Delta Marine’s 185-foot superyacht Starship , known as My Seanna during filming, ranked as the fourth priciest vessel with a value of $22.9 million. It also costs a lofty $275,000 per week to rent. Rounding out the top five is Feadship’s BG , or Valor in the show. Delivered by the Dutch yard in 2013, the 153-footer features a highly sophisticated exterior styled by De Voogt and a luxe contemporary interior by McMilen Design. It is estimated to be worth $21 million.

Screen Rant

Chartering a below deck yacht & how much it costs.

All the yacht vacations featured on the Below Deck franchise are extremely expensive. Guests have to spend hundreds of dollars for a week-long trip.

  • Below Deck showcases expensive luxury yachts and allows wealthy guests to be part of the popular reality TV show, documenting their adventures.
  • Chartering on a Below Deck yacht is costly and filters for the richest individuals who come with entertaining requests and add drama to the show.
  • Being a guest on Below Deck yachts allows individuals to become celebrities, as they are treated like stars, interviewed, and gain popularity and followers.

Below Deck has featured various luxury yachts on the show since 2013, most of which have been quite expensive. The hit reality TV series is most popular for showcasing interesting charter guests and their adventures on the ships. One of the most memorable guests has been Delores Flora from Below Deck season 8 . The middle-aged woman got so drunk on Captain Lee Rosbach's yacht that she couldn't think straight. Despite safety hazard warnings, Delores decided to swim in the ocean at night, causing everyone a lot of stress. The next day, Captain Lee kicked her off the ship for not obliging.

Below Deck season 3 guest Steve Bradley is another charter guest who viewers might still remember. His extremely flirty behavior and demands were always over-the-top. Steve once asked the crew for a foam party and gave the entire deck team a hard time. To make matters worse, he returned to Below Deck season 6 with the same behavior. As for Captain Lee's opinion, he thinks Timothy Sykes was the worst charter guest ever. The young entrepreneur was extremely demanding during his stay and forced the team to give back tip money.

Charter Prices For Below Deck Yachts

Across all the spin-offs and dozens of seasons, the charter prices for Below Deck yachts have varied. According to Yacht Charter Fleet , Captain Lee's Below Deck season 1 ship Honor was $170K weekly. His latest boat, the St. David, had a charter price of $360K. The costs for Captain Lee's yachts have risen over the years, but it also depends on their lengths, which have varied between $153K to $196K.

Being on a Below Deck spin-off is also not so cheap. Below Deck Mediterranean season 7's yacht Home was $245K per week. In comparison, Below Deck Sailing Yacht's legendary boat Parsifal III has remained at $217K throughout all four seasons. Below Deck Down Under is relatively cheap, as Northern Sun has a charter rate of $162K per week. The same is true for the newest spinoff, Below Deck Adventure .

Below Deck Yachts Are Not For Everyone

Chartering on Below Deck is expensive, whether it's Captain Lee's luxury yacht or Captain Glenn Shephard's iconic sailboat. Most people are unable to shed over $100,000 just to spend a week on board. However, the costly price of being on the ship is by design. It helps filter the richest individuals for the show, who usually come with an entertaining list of requests. Sometimes, these guests are spoiled, which adds drama to the show. Recently, Below Deck Down Under's drunk guests ruined everyone's night by stripping and jumping into the sea at 2 a.m. Captain Jason Chambers shut down their wild activities before they injured themselves. He even threatened to call the charter off.

Below Deck Yachts Guest Become Celebrities

There are other valid reasons why Below Deck 's luxury yachts cost so much. Chartering on any similar ship costs a lot in general. Therefore, most wealthy guests decide based on perks. The first benefit is being on a popular reality TV show. Any charter guest who pays to be on Below Deck's yachts get to be part of the franchise. Being on camera ensures that all their adventures are documented and projected to the world. The second perk is the celebrity-like experience, since the guests are treated like stars. Below Deck yacht guests get interviewed, earn new followers, become popular, and feel like celebrities.

Welcome to the Most Expensive Yacht in 'Below Deck' History

Jun. 5 2020, Updated 1:07 p.m. ET

Below Deck Mediterranean returns to Bravo for its fifth season which undoubtedly will have all the drama and mayhem viewers have come to expect and love from the show. This season, Captain Sandy and her crew are manning the biggest and most luxurious boat the show has ever seen.

To drum up excitement for the new season, Bravo recently released a personalized virtual tour of the yacht , led by Captain Sandy and new bosun, Malia White. The superyacht, which measures a staggering 56.2 meters, left audiences stunned. 

Featuring sumptuous interiors, state-of-the-art deck toys, and even a waterfall-equipped jacuzzi, The Wellington has already captured the imaginations of fans before the new season has even aired. But what wasn’t included in the tour was exactly how much it costs to charter a vessel as grand as The Wellington. 

Keep scrolling to find out everything you need to know about how much it costs to get on a Below Deck Mediterranean yacht.

How much does it cost to charter The Wellington?

The Wellington, originally named The Wellesley, is the largest yacht ever featured on any of the Below Deck franchises. It's also the largest Captain Sandy has ever been at the helm of. 

The yacht is listed on Charter World for a cool €220,000 (around $243,000) per week, comes fully staffed, and is able to accommodate up to 12 guests. 

If you’re thinking that’s a number within reach, keep in mind that the price unfortunately doesn’t include expenses like food and drinks, fuel costs, docking fees, and taxes.

The Wellington boasts a 1920s theme and luxe interiors that include a club lounge and a bespoke humidor, complete with a selection of cigars and top-shelf whiskeys. Massive bedrooms are accompanied by walk-in closets and each bathroom is made with a different type of marble. 

This yacht also has a VIP room that includes panoramic windows and a skylight that allows guests to sleep under a view of the stars.

While the luxuries of The Wellington certainly don’t come cheap in real life, charter guests that appear on the show do enjoy a bit of a discount to charter the yacht. 

Guests usually pay around half of the listed price for a three-day charter, which includes being pampered and having their every whim indulged by the ready-to-please crew.

The most expensive yacht on 'Below Deck' history also means bigger tips than we've seen before.

As it’s been pointed out by Below Deck creator Mark Cronin , despite getting the discount, charter guests are still paying out of their own pocket to be on the show. Guests also are responsible for the cash tip that they customarily leave for the crew at the end of every charter, but they can decide what that tip will be based on their experience onboard the yacht. 

Gratuity is usually 15 to 30 percent of the non-discounted rate for chartering a yacht like this, which for The Wellington works out to around €33,000 to €66,000 ($36,537 to $73,146). After a total of 12 seasons of the Below Deck franchise, a tip of this amount is absolutely unheard of. 

But on a boat where the bedsheets cost €2,000 ($2,200) a pop, you get what you pay for. 

Season 5 of Below Deck Mediterranean premieres Monday, June 1 at 9 p.m. on Bravo.

below deck mediterranean home yacht cost

Seasonal fluctuations of chartering yachts

The Mediterranean yacht charter season generally runs from April to October , with the peak months being July and August. During these months, demand is high, and prices tend to be at their highest. However, you can still find great deals during the shoulder months of May, June, September, and October. The weather and sailing conditions vary depending on the time of year, so make sure to do your research and choose the best time to suit your preferences and budget.

Additional expenses for chartering a yacht

Additional expenses such as fuel, food, beverages, and harbor fees can significantly impact your total cost. Most yacht charters operate on an Advance Provisioning Allowance (APA) basis, which means you will be charged a percentage of the charter fee (usually 20–30%) to cover these additional expenses. It's important to plan and budget for these costs to avoid any surprises.

Remember that tipping the crew is customary, so factor that into your budget as well. A general guideline is 10–15% of the total charter fee, depending on the quality of service.

Yacht charters can also offer optional extras such as water sports equipment, diving gear, or event planning services. These can add to the overall cost, so consider which optional features you'd like to include in your charter experience and inquire about their associated fees.

Choosing the perfect yacht for your Mediterranean vacation is an exciting step in the planning process. To find the ideal yacht for your needs, consider the following factors:

Budget : Determine how much you're willing to spend on your yacht charter experience. The cost to rent a yacht can vary significantly, from €140,000 per week for the Below Deck yachts to more affordable options from various yacht rental services.

Duration : Decide how long you'd like to charter the yacht and plan your itinerary accordingly. This will help you pick the most suitable yacht for your desired time frame.

Guests : Assess the number of guests joining your trip. Ensure the yacht you choose can accommodate everyone comfortably.

Amenities : Consider the type of amenities you'd like on board. These may include gym equipment, watersports equipment, or spa facilities. Make sure the yacht provides the amenities you need for an enjoyable time.

Now that you have an idea of what you're looking for in a yacht, follow these steps to book your Mediterranean yacht experience:

Step 1: Research yacht charter agencies

Start by researching reputable yacht charter agencies, like CharterWorld or Northrop & Johnson . Browse their websites to see the different yachts and itineraries available.

Step 2: Contact a yacht charter broker

Get in touch with a professional yacht charter broker who can help you find the perfect yacht for your needs. Discuss your budget, desired time frame, and preferences with the broker to narrow down your choices.

Step 3: Select your yacht

Choose the yacht that best suits your preferences, budget, and availability. Ensure the yacht is available during your desired dates and confirm the details of the rental agreement.

Step 4: Finalize your booking

Once you've selected your yacht and agreed on the price and rental terms, submit the necessary paperwork and deposits to secure your booking. Make sure to read and understand the contract thoroughly before signing.

Additionally, booking early will allow you to have more flexibility in selecting the perfect itinerary and destination, avoiding peak travel times, and securing better overall rates for both the yacht and any additional expenses such as food, fuel, and activities.

New Below Deck Med yacht HOME layout map and video tours

Below Deck Med super yacht Home

On the season premiere of Below Deck: Mediterranean Season 7, viewers are introduced to the crew that will be hosting the next few months of high seas drama on Bravo. It would be difficult to single out the sexiest new cast member this season, but it may just be the super-fine 50 meters of hybrid yacht hotness that is the M/Y Home!

The elegant Heesen superyacht was built in 2017 and was the Dutch shipbuilder’s first to be equipped with hybrid propulsion. “In this case ‘Hybrid’ means that the yacht can draw on two sources of power for propulsion: diesel mechanical and diesel electrical,” Heesen explains in their promotional brochure for Home . “Either or both sources can be used at the same time. This provides less noise and vibration, a more flexible power management which means better efficiency.”

Home measures 49.8 meters (163 feet, 4 inches) and has an overall beam of 9.1 meters (29 feet, 10 inches). It’s lightweight aluminum hull helps Home achieve a gross tonnage just under 500. Its max speed with a half load is 16.3 knots with diesel direct and 9 knots with diesel electric.

Moving on to the stats that are more relevant to casual Below Deck viewers, Home has accommodations for 9 crew members and 12 guests. There is a full-beam owner’s stateroom for Captain Sandy, one full-beam VIP guest suite, two double guest suites, and two twin guest suites.

Superyacht Home floor plan

I’m an avid Below Deck fan and I don’t feel like I ever have a very clear understanding of the layout on the boats featured on the various shows. To help myself (and other fans) during Below Deck Med Season 7, I’ve put together a map of the layout of M/Y Home that should help you imagine the 3D landscape in which all of the drama plays out.

I’ve color coded the different levels, starting with the sun deck (green) at the top and working down through the wheelhouse (pink), main deck (yellow) and lower deck (grey).


Below Deck Med Yacht HOME floor plan layout map

Here are individual images for the lower three levels arranged vertically for easier viewing on mobile devices:

Super yacht Home layout

You will notice that the crew resides in the lower deck at the front (bow) of the boat. There are four small cabins, four bathrooms, and eight twin bunk beds. The crew mess is right next to the cabins in the lower deck.

The captain’s quarters is located on the wheelhouse level and has a door that opens directly into the bridge.

The charter guest master suite is located on the main deck. I was surprised to see that the Home’s galley (kitchen) is right on the other side of the wall from the master suite bathroom.

One question I have after checking out the Home layout is where the engineer(s) sleeps? Also, I thought production takes a room to set up their equipment? The chef, three stews, and four deck crew members take up all eight crew bunks, right? If I figure out answers to these questions I will update this post for clarification.

How Much Does It Cost To Rent The Yachts On Below Deck?

Below Deck stars Kate Chastain and Captain Lee Rosbach

Watching Bravo's  Below Deck , it's kind of impossible not to fantasize about renting one of the featured luxury yachts for yourself. For most of us regular folks, the idea of lounging around having every need tended to by a crew of hot, young twentysomethings is an experience we're only going to get watching this particular show (and its drama-filled spin-off,  Below Deck Mediterranean , of course).

Still, it's fun to dream. And if our funds ever permit us to, the first stop would be one of these huge boats replete with gold bathroom fixtures, luxuriously expansive guest cabins, and Michelin-star service. So, how much exactly would that set you back?

According to  Worldwide Boat,  the cheapest you can rent one of the featured yachts (the Ohana, from season 2) is $140,000 per week. The rest range in price all the way up to a whopping €231,000 (around $256,000 per week) for the Talisman Maiton, which was featured on  Below Deck Med  season 3.

According to  Yacht Charter Fleet , the smaller super-yachts, including the  Ionian Princess , the  Valor , and the  Sirocco , rent for approximately $154,000 to $199,500 per week, depending on the season and the boat. The good news, though, is the Ohana is $140,000 per week at any time of year, so it's something of a bargain compared to the others.

As for the mid-range yachts, the  Eros  is currently not available for rent, nor is the recently-redone  Honor . The biggest super-yachts, meanwhile, are  way  out of seemingly anybody's price range. The aforementioned Talisman Maiton goes for the same massive fee no matter the time of year, while  My Seanna , at 185 feet, is $294,000 a week in the winter and $315,500 a week in summer. 

Appearing on Below Deck might save you some money

Those looking to appear on  Below Deck  might get a discount as, according to  The Forward Cabin , charter guests who feature only pay around $11,000 each for the privilege, and that includes airfare, hotels, and more. The charters are shorter, however, clocking in at just a few days each according to  Worldwide Boat . 

It's still a massive discount considering the show's own Kate Chastain told  ET ,  "Generally a boat that size, 150 foot — this one's 160, Valor — but around that price range, for seven days, is around $150,000. But that does not include airfare, fuel, food, wine, docking, tip. So, I would say for a boat like Valor, for a week vacation, it would be around a quarter of a million dollars."

If you're more interested in owning rather than renting a yacht, be forewarned;  Denison Yachting  advises it'll cost around $4.75 million annually for a 180-foot vessel, including around $400,00 for fuel, $350,000 for dockage, $240,000 for vessel insurance, $1 million for maintenance and repairs, and $1.4 million for crew salaries.

They're definitely pricey, but the Below Deck yachts are worth it

Chartering a luxury yacht, particularly one featured on Below Deck, costs so much for one major reason: You're getting a first class experience. As noted by Worldwide Boat , the expert crews working these boats are the best of the best (despite what the hit show and its spin-off, may lead us to believe), and the amenities boasted by each truly have to be seen to be believed. Put simply, this is a once in a lifetime vacation.

Take the Ionian Princess, which boasts a sun deck featuring a Jacuzzi and breathtaking views. The gorgeous boat, originally built in 2005, also includes luxury accommodations across six cabins for up to 12 guests. Likewise, the Dutch-built Sirocco, which was made in 2006, also features a sun deck but it's equipped with a gym, making it even more special. Elsewhere on-board there's an alfresco party deck, theater, and plenty of other amenities for fun both on and off the water. 

The yachts featured on Below Deck are basically floating luxury hotels

The mighty Talisman Maiton, meanwhile, fittingly named for a stunning Thai island, is a superb, tri-deck yacht. Although it accommodates 12 guests total, the boat also features a master suite and a VIP stateroom, so exclusivity is key. It was refit in 2016 (the yacht was originally built in 2006) and now features a glorious sun deck and spa pool complete with a bar, gym, and an all-important observation deck with panoramic views.

The  huge My Seanna also boasts a master suite and VIP stateroom, as well as a chic beach club, fittings brushed in 22 carat gold, a sundeck sauna and gym, helipad, and even an outdoor movie theater. Act quickly and you might just get a discount on it, as  Yacht Charter Fleet  previously advertised that the first three charters to the Bahamas this past summer were subject to an insane 35 percent price reduction. 

Chartering a  Below Deck  yacht is something most of us will only ever dream of doing, but it's not hard to understand why those who have the cash choose to splash out for the privilege.

'Below Deck' season 1 promotional image

If anything is apparent from an episode of Below Deck , it is that the top-end yachts featured on the reality series are highly luxurious. Guests expect the highest-quality experience for their money, and in return, the crew on the yachts are pushed to their limits to deliver the utmost, most efficient service.

For those who watch the show and want to try the Below Deck experience from above deck, it is possible to charter a yacht featured in the series. Be warned, if it wasn’t obvious enough, boarding these ships requires some seriously deep pockets.

'Below Deck' season 2 promotional image

According to the experts at  Yacht Charter Fleet , the yacht from season 1, named Honor, costs a cool €155,000 per week to charter, which is around $170,000 in US dollars. This includes an entire deck crew from chefs to ship stewards but does not include additional costs, such as fuel – and it only goes up from there.

As the seasons have gone on, the yachts have only gotten bigger and better, with more glamour packed per inch. Season 10’s ship, St. David, has a hefty charter rate of €325,000 a week, roughly $350,000. For your money, you’ll get access to a spa pool, a cinema screen, and a titanic-like spiral staircase fitted with a skylight. There are six luxurious suites on board, designed for you and your 12 wealthiest friends to have the best week of your lives.

If your purse strings are a little tighter, the Northern Sun superyacht from the current season of  Below Deck Down Under  is 167 feet long at a rate of $162,000 per week. The Lady Michelle from season 6 of  Below Deck Mediterranean  offers an open-air cinema, a dining room for 12 guests, and an owner’s suite for the VIP of the ship.

How To Book The 'Below Deck Mediterranean' Yacht, Because Everyone Needs A Luxury Vacation

If you aren't yet familiar with Below Deck Mediterranean or its predecessor, Below Deck , then you probably have close to no idea how glamorous yacht life is. But if you have been a fan of the Bravo series, and caught the Below Deck Mediterranean series premiere, then you're probably wondering, can you book a trip on Below Deck Mediterranean ? If you've got a couple hundred thousand dollars sitting around, then yes, you can absolutely book a trip on the Ionian Princess of Below Deck Mediterranean .

Much like the series before it, Below Deck Mediterranean will feature the sort of drama fans have come to love and expect from not only Bravo but Below Deck itself. Some of the only differences this time around are the location, which will find us enjoying the insane sights of Greece and since it's in European waters, we can also expect to have the sort of cast and crew made up of all sorts of cultures, ethnicities, and accents. A melting pot at the sea, if you will.

The trailer for the first season of the new series features all sorts of dramatics already, from the crew getting in fights (surprising) to passenger/steward relations (also super surprising. Only, you know, not). Naturally, though, the experience on Below Deck Mediterranean looks like a nonstop party and who doesn't want to be a part of that? So, how do you charter the yacht from Below Deck and what does it even entail? Should you find yourself wanting to be in thick of all of that drama, then here we go.

How Much Does It Cost?

As to be expected, in order to charter the Ionian Princess for a week at a time, it costs a pretty penny . If you are looking to have it for a week in the winter, it's going to run you around $140,087, and should you prefer to take a trip for a week in the summer, costs start at $163,501. For one week.

How Can You Book The Yacht?

Believe it or not, in order to rent a yacht, there is a lot more to it than calling the owner and giving them your credit card info. A vacation rental in Myrtle Beach this is not. Instead, you're looking at speaking to a yacht broker in order to have a middle man of sorts to speak to the owner and crew of the yacht you're looking to charter. Think of them as a travel agent , but kind of on a higher level.

How To Ensure A Spot On The Actual Show

What's that? You want to take a 3-4 day trip on a luxury yacht around the Mediterranean Sea and also appear on a hit Bravo reality show? Yeah, I know. But you don't need to be a millionaire to get to take a trip on the Ionian Princess in this instance. Bravo actually casts for guests specifically , so it has nothing to do with paying to charter the yacht yourself. For a chance to be on Below Deck Mediterranean and get a spot on the Ionian Princess, all you need to do is send your name, phone number, location, picture, and some reasons why you want to go on the yacht to [email protected]. So yeah, you have to somehow come up with why you want to take an awesome luxury yacht trip.

Below Deck Yachts

Yacht with Below Deck logo

If you’ve never seen the show, it follows the crew of a luxury yacht during peak “charter season.” The original Below Deck, for example, showed off the glitz and glamour of the Caribbean, especially around St. Thomas, the British Virgin Islands, and the Bahamas. The Mediterranean spin-off, on the other hand, highlights European hotspots, including Italy, Spain and Croatia.

The show is undeniably a ton of fun. From the drama in the crew quarters, to the incredible beaches, the show provides an entertaining look behind the curtain.

Yet, the chartered superyachts are the real stars of the show. Each season, Below Deck features a truly stunning super yacht. All of them measure over 150 feet and are decked out in opulent features, staterooms and amenities. And here’s something you might not know: The majority of the Below Deck yachts are available for charter!

Below Deck Charter Yachts

Through five seasons, Below Deck has featured some of the most magnificent super yachts in the world. Some of the yachts have changed ownership since the show, been renamed, or have undergone a refitting. Yet, most look like they did from the show.

But beyond the name and maybe a few changes to the interior, there aren’t many differences. All of the water toys, Jacuzzis and stunning outdoor dining areas are what you’ll find on the yachts available for charter! So which charter yachts are available?

Here’s a more detailed look at the yachts featured on the original Below Deck:

Honor – Season 1

Lumiere yacht

Honor (which is now LUMIERE) kicked off the first season, and she put on a dazzling display. The yacht, originally built by Benetti in 1999, is one of the largest yachts ever featured on the show, and it was actually booked for a five-week charter for filming.

HONOR benefited from the new-found fame of the show. She sold after it aired for nearly $15 million, and the new owners completely refit her interiors and renamed the boat. Today, LUMIERE is a masterpiece of nautical engineering.

She features luxurious accommodations for up to 12 guests and an abundance of deck space, including a sprawling sun deck. The yacht also features a wide array of water toys (the slide was a struggle for the crew all season!).

Ohana – Season 2

Yacht Rhino

Season 2 took the crew on a tour of the British Virgin Islands and featured some familiar faces. Captain Lee, Chef Ben, and Bosun Eddie were back, much to the pleasure of fans. Yet, the yacht was completely different.

OHANA (real name is RHINO) was featured on the second season, a stunning 154-footer, with beautiful decks, a horseshoe outdoor bar, and a stunning outdoor sun deck. After the show aired in 2014, Ohana underwent an extensive retrofit.

She now features an updated interior with a decidedly modern, airy vibe, as well as new hardware, including a state-of-the-art stabilization system.

Eros – Season 3

Yacht Mustang Sally

EROS took centerstage in Season 3, and the 161-foot yacht, originally built for the founder of Tim Hortons, was one of the most luxurious featured on the show. The beautiful tri-deck, featured a stately saloon, a sky lounge Jacuzzi, and sleek exterior styling.

EROS – which was sold prior to the third season – has since been renamed and was also remodeled. She’s now known as Mustang Sally, and unfortunately, this is one of the few Below Deck charter yachts that’s not available for charter.

Valor – Seasons 4 & 5

below deck mediterranean home yacht cost

The stately VALOR was a fan favorite in Season 4 and 5. Built in 1990 by Dutch-based Feadship, the 154-foot VALOR featured a sprawling aft deck, perfect for sunset dinners and afternoon lounges. Plus, the ship – when featured on the show – had a range of water toys, including dual jet skis and a sleek, boutique hotel-inspired interior.

Like Mustang Sally, VALOR – which is now known as simply BG – isn’t available for charter. Yet, fans will always remember all the drama that took place on board.

Below Deck Mediterranean Yachts

Below Deck Mediterranean premiered in 2016, and through three seasons, the show has featured some of the Med’s best yachts. All of the yachts from the Mediterranean spin-off are available for charter, exactly how you see them on the show.

Ionian Princess – Season 1

Yacht Ionian Princess

Season 1 of Below Deck Mediterranean launched with a bang, featuring one of the strongest premieres for the franchise. Although there was plenty of drama throughout the season as the crew traveled around Greece, the beauty of IONIAN PRINCESS couldn’t be missed. The ship, which was originally built in the U.S. in 2005, featured a sleek, streamlined tri-deck design and gorgeous interiors.

The sun deck – where guests partied all season long – is one of the yacht’s star attractions, featuring a Jacuzzi with world-class views. Her interior, though, is one of the most stunning, featuring a chic design. The yacht also includes six cabins with accommodations for up to 12 guests.

Sirocco – Season 2

Sirocco yacht

Season 2 took the crew to Croatia, aboard SIROCCO. The Dutch-built yacht originally launched in 2006, and thanks to its unique two-tone, third-deck exterior, she was remembered for her striking exterior. All of the yacht’s features made great TV. From her incredible sun deck, to the African chic interior, and all of the many water toys, SIROCCO’s impressive design and amenities stood out.

Today, she’s available for charter throughout the Mediterranean. A few unique features include a sun deck gym, an alfresco party deck, a theatre, and a wide array of water toys.

Talisman Maiton – Season 3


Named for an island in Thailand, TAILSMAN MAITON is a stunning tri-deck that cruises the pristine waters of Italy and all of the Mediterranean. The largest to ever be featured on the show, TAILSMAN is truly incredible.

The yacht accommodates 12 guests, in 6 beautifully appointed rooms. There’s a master suite, as well as 1 VIP stateroom, and four smaller cabins. The yacht was built in 2006, but most recently refit in 2016 with a timeless Art Deco aesthetic. The yacht also features a sundeck spa pool with a beautiful bar, a full-service gym, and an observation deck with panoramic views.

How Long Are the Below Deck Charters?

Here’s a little-known secret about Below Deck: The “charter season” on the show is just a few weeks. In fact, the yachts are actually booked for about six weeks, and their regular crews are sent home. In other words, the charters on Below Deck are actually a charter within a charter!

Each of the Below Deck charters last just a few days, and each episode features new charter guests.

Below Deck Yacht Rental Costs

Hiring a yacht from Below Deck isn’t cheap. The majority cost in the neighborhood of $150,000 per week. Yet, that charter rate doesn’t include expenses, including fuel, dockage fees, and taxes.

Yet, for that price, you’ll get a truly world-class experience. The crews of each of these yachts provide first-class service and all of the boats are fully loaded with amenities. There’s nothing quite like it in the world. And by hiring one of these superyachts, you’ll also have bragging rights for chartering a yacht featured on a TV show!

Below Deck Med 's Captain Sandy reacts to arrest of the builder who left her home unfinished: 'This is the beginning'

"We just want to enjoy our lives after this nightmare."

Emlyn Travis is a news writer at  Entertainment Weekly  with over five years of experience covering the latest in entertainment. A proud Kingston University alum, Emlyn has written about music, fandom, film, television, and awards for multiple outlets including MTV News,  Teen Vogue , Bustle, BuzzFeed,  Paper Magazine , Dazed, and NME. She joined EW in August 2022.

Below Deck Mediterranean star Captain Sandy Yawn is feeling hopeful for the future after the developer who disappeared after starting construction on her Nocatee, Fla., home was arrested on multiple money-related charges on Thursday.

“We have a badass detective John McGuire working non-stop,” Yawn said in an exclusive statement to EW. “This is just the beginning and justice has and will continue to be served.” 

The Bravo reality star explained that she and her fiancée Leah Shafer are “continuing to build our home ourselves” moving forward. “Hopefully it will be done by June after our wedding,” Yawn added. “We just want to enjoy our lives after this nightmare. We are working hard to earn money to finish and now have to get a construction loan.”

Ralph Bavaro/Bravo via Getty Images

The St. Johns County Sheriff’s Office confirmed in a social media statement on Friday that Pineapple Corporation president Spencer Calvert, whose company Yawn purchased the $1.6 million house from in January , had been arrested and charged with “embezzling and misappropriating more than $100k in construction funds, first degree grand larceny of $100k or more, and organized scheme to defraud.”

“Calvert is the owner of Pineapple Corporation and was in contract with customers to build several homes in Nocatee’s Vista neighborhood,” the statement read in part. “The victims purchased lots from Calvert between 2019-2023, that were ultimately left abandoned and incomplete.”

It added that “thirteen initial victims came forward and reported their experience to SJSO Property Crimes Unit detectives” who, with help from investigators from the State Attorney’s Office 7th Judicial Circuit, discovered that “Calvert received millions of dollars in deposits from customers to build their custom homes and misappropriated over $15,000,000.” 

“Additionally, Calvert failed to pay subcontractors with the funds provided by the victims for labor, services, or materials provided which caused more than $900,000 in liens to be filed against the victims,” it continued. “Calvert is accused of knowingly and intentionally accepting deposits and abandoning the project without any attempt to refund or correct the situation.”

The statement concluded by noting that the investigation is still “active” and that “further details will be released when appropriate.”

A Pineapple Corporation rep did not immediately respond to EW's request for comment.

Yawn and Schafer previously told First Coast News that they invested all of their money into their custom home only for the builder to go “ MIA with all of our money .” In the aftermath of their disappearance, Yawn told the outlet that she's since had to foot the bill for work crews to compete the project, and estimated that it would cost the couple an additional $800,000 in order to get it fully move-in ready.

Katie shared during a Season 6, Episode 1 interview. "We were just so young, too passionate, never gonna work. But, like, at least we were together for about a year-and-a-half, you know? It kind of makes it worth it, right?"

What happened to Jack Stirrup during  Below Deck Mediterranean Season 4?

Jack's official bio gave a good indication of what we'd see from the deckhand during Season 4.

"Born and raised in Liverpool, Jack spent time working in the Merchant Navy as an engineer and brought those skill to the exciting world of yachting. With his crazy curls, year-round tan, and smooth accent, it is easy to see why Jack is quite the ladies’ man."

"Leaving the Merchant Navy full of scruffy, smelly, geezers and coming to, like, the most luxurious yacht full of beautiful women is a bit of a shock to the system," shared Jack during a confessional in Episode 1.

Ultimately, he ended up best know for his relationship with second stew Aesha.

The two first connected while dancing together in Episode 5, and  Jack was smitten . By Episode 9 they were going on romantic dates, and Episode 13 saw them moving into the same bunk. Hopes were high for the couple when the season ended.

What happened to Jack Stirrup's relationship with Aesha Scott?

The couple split shortly after filming ended for Season 4, when Aesha found out Jack was cheating on her with the woman he'd been dating before joining the crew, they revealed during the Below Deck Mediterranean Season 4 After Show .

"We left the boat, and then he was like, 'Oh, I really want you to come to London with me and meet my family,'" Aesha explained. "But then he's like, 'Don't book a ticket 'til I've gone to this wedding, because we've got family staying, and it's really busy, and I don't know what date we'll have a room for."

She then discovered that he'd renewed his romance with the woman from back home almost immediately and taken her to the family wedding. She had to call him to break it off, and got calls from the other woman telling her to stop calling Jack.

"He definitely owes me a massive apology, and I'm gonna rip him to pieces if we talk," she said at the time. "But then after that, I hope that we can just put it at peace because it wasn't just on the show; we genuinely did have such a great friendship."

During a July 2022 episode of Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen , Aesha revealed that she'd gotten her apology from Jack following their breakup .

"He actually came specifically to France to apologize to me for cheating on me, which I don't actually think his girlfriend knew," Aesha revealed in the Bravo Clubhouse. "So, hope this isn't live."

A year later, Aesha told fans what happened after that fateful French meeting during another WWHL appearance .

"We kind of carried on our friendship after that, because, at the end of the day, we did get on really, really well," Aesha said. "But then when I started seeing [her now-boyfriend  Scott Dobson ], I cut that off because I thought it was respectful to my new relationship, even though it was just friendship."
