Meet ‘Home,’ the Sleek 164-Foot Superyacht That Starred in ‘Below Deck’

The 164-footer was not only the backdrop for the reality series but also has hybrid propulsion and a "50 shades of white" interior., julia zaltzman, julia zaltzman's most recent stories.

Superyacht Home by Heesen

The 164-foot motor yacht Home was Heesen’s first hybrid yacht when it delivered in 2017. It was also the first yacht to combine hybrid propulsion with a Fast Displacement Hull Shape (FDHF), which is proven to outperform conventional hull forms at all speeds. Built in lightweight aluminum, Home delivers 48 percent more fuel efficiency than other yachts of the same size.

Another perk of the hybrid propulsion package is reduced noise and vibration. Sensory expert Barry Smith, founder of the Centre for the Study of the Senses, discovered that the enjoyment of fine dining and wine while cruising in electric mode is significantly enhanced.

“Our research has shown that the brain’s processing of taste is affected by noise, which reduces the tongue’s ability to detect salt, sweet and sour,” says Smith. “The beauty of Home is the ability to run at a sound of around 46 decibels—the sound level of softly falling rain—enabling those on board to enjoy food and drink with no diminution of taste.”

Home began as a speculation build by the shipyard, before the American owner stepped in to the project. The initial interior was not to his liking, so he engaged Italian designer Cristiano Gatto to rework the design. He mandated simplicity, rather than minimalism. He also requested decor inspired by his residences, reflecting their contemporary Ibiza style. One perfect example: The slinky metal chaise lounge in the main salon by Italian designer Franco Poli.

Here are 10 facts about one of the world’s first hybrid yachts.

Star of the Med

below deck mediterranean yacht names

Home ’s fortune took a sharp turn in 2022 when it became the star of the seventh season of Below Deck Mediterranean . Filmed in Malta, the reality series followed its crew over an eight-week charter season, with Captain Sandy Yawn at the helm. Unlike most yachts on Below Deck, Home retained its real name on screen. It was the first diesel-electric motor yacht to appear on the show, and in typical style, the producers added a dancing pole to the sundeck to spice up the onboard antics.

50 Shades of White

below deck mediterranean yacht names

Home takes the trend for neutral interiors to a whole new level. Alongside a color palette of black and gray with pops of deep red, the yacht features 50 shades of white, from off-white to ivory. The original owner mandated an interior that gave him a “home away from home”—hence the yacht’s name. Low-slung sofas and bespoke loose furniture create a relaxed and welcoming beach club ambience. The vessel’s teak flooring and full-height glass windows blur the distinction between inside and out.

Party Lounge

below deck mediterranean yacht names

One of Heesen’s signature areas is an upper-deck sky lounge. Home ’s casual bean bags, daybeds, and stark-white bar with LED strip lighting provide a natural extension to the alfresco dining terrace. When the doors to the aft deck are shut and the furniture removed, a mirror ball and a smoke machine are added turning the area into a dedicated party room for nighttime use.

A Dreamier Shade of Pale

below deck mediterranean yacht names

Full-height windows in the full-beam, main deck owner’s suite bounce natural light off the paler-than-pale color scheme. The off-white bed, rug, walls, and ceiling are offset with a sky-blue bed throw. There is a dressing room, an en suite with shower and a private office. There’s also a full-beam VIP cabin on the lower deck, as well as two double cabins and two twin cabins to accommodate 12 guests, including families.

Moody Sundeck

below deck mediterranean yacht names

Home ’s sundeck is the hub of the boat. There are sun lounges forward with privacy glass safety screens to shelter guests from sea spray and wind. Beneath the hardtop bimini is a large sit-up bar and lounge area, which also doubles as an outdoor dining area. The bar lights up in soft pastel shades at night to bring the party atmosphere. Aft is a Jacuzzi, while a projector and a screen set-up transform the deck into an outdoor cinema.

On the Nose

below deck mediterranean yacht names

The yacht is easily spotted on the horizon, thanks to its distinctive plumb bow. The vertical front increases Home ’s waterline length, helping it to slice through waves and lift in rougher water. It guarantees a smoother and faster ride for guests, as well as creating more room on the interior for crew accommodations. For a more immersive journey, a telescopic seat on the foredeck rises from the bow for 360-degree views.

Sea Terrace

below deck mediterranean yacht names

A central staircase on the main deck aft leads down to an oversized swim platform that doubles as a sea-level sun lounge. With plenty of room for daybeds and sunrise yoga sessions, it’s the perfect waterside hang out.

The Athletic Club

below deck mediterranean yacht names

The lower-deck gym is a full-beam, air-conditioned space for guests to sweat it out. It’s kitted out with a range of equipment, including a workout bench, Techno Gym dumbbells, an exercise bike, and a rowing machine. When guests are done with their workout, they’re just a few steps from the sea for the ultimate plunge to cool off.

The Electric Package

below deck mediterranean yacht names

The twin 805 hp MTU engines (smaller than those typically fitted on a yacht of this size) can be operated in four different cruising modes: hybrid (with noise levels in the owner’s stateroom measuring as low as 46 decibels), economic, cruising (consuming as little as 12 gallons per hour at 9 knots), and boost, which pushes the boat to a top speed of 16.8 knots.

Fast, Efficient Hull

below deck mediterranean yacht names

At the time of launch, Home was the first yacht to combine the super efficiency of an FDHF hull, designed by Van Oosenan Naval Architects, with hybrid propulsion. The combination was celebrated with a RINA green award presented by HSH Prince Albert II of Monaco.

Why Lady Michelle Is Captain Sandy's Favorite Below Deck Mediterranean Yacht to Date

In an exclusive chat with e news, captain sandy yawn explained why the season six yacht for below deck mediterranean is her favorite. see what she had to say.

All aboard!

In an exclusive chat with E! News, Below Deck Mediterranean 's Captain Sandy Yawn dished all about her season six yacht, named Lady Michelle. Fans of the Below Deck franchise got a taste of the luxury vessel during season two of Below Deck Sailing Yacht . Yet, in the new season of Below Deck Med , viewers will get a front row seat to what the yacht has to offer.

And, from what Captain Sandy told us, Lady Michelle is one impressive yacht. "My favorite boat ever," she shared. "It was like so solid, I didn't even know we were at sea."

While the layout of Lady Michelle is certainly breathtaking, boasting six guest cabins and over 180 feet in length, the captain revealed that she loved the way it handles. "For me, how it responds in the sea," she explained. "You know, the layout was great, it's for charter...The volume for the size was incredible."

This is certainly high praise coming from Captain Sandy, who has previously captained mega-yachts Sirocco, Talisman Maiton and The Wellington. However, after learning of Lady Michelle's $310,000 winter rate/per week, we can't say we're shocked that the yacht is so spectacular.

Although Lady Michelle typically sails the Caribbean and Bahamas, Captain Sandy led her through the waters of Croatia this season. On returning to the European country's coast, she relayed, "It was absolutely beautiful. The people were great. You know, remember, it was very quiet 'cause of what was going on around the world."

Per the captain, she was "just grateful" that they "got to go there."

Speaking of the coronavirus pandemic, Captain Sandy assured us that season six will be just as entertaining and fabulous as its predecessors. "We made it incredible, right?" she said. "So, that's the beauty of being on a boat is you can quarantine off-shore and have this epic time and see these beautiful places while the rest of the world is shut down."

The captain highlighted how the charter business also helped the economy. She concluded, "At the same time, you're employing people, you're provisioning, you're buying goods. You know, so you're helping the community at the same time."

Below Deck Mediterranean  premieres tonight, June 28 at 9 p.m. on Bravo . All new episodes will be available on Peacock one week early, starting June 21.

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 Mediterranean

below deck mediterranean yacht names

Below Deck is now firmly positioned as the ultimate sea-faring reality TV series of our times.

Now Below Deck Mediterranean is on our screens, you may be starting to form visions of your own adventure in the Med. The good news is it’s totally possible to create your own Below Deck Mediterranean experience, without necessarily breaking the bank. Read on  for our guide to how to go Below Deck on a budget. 

wellesley charter yacht

The Wellesley (named the wellington in the show) is the largest vessel to feature on the series so far – an incredible 184 foot mega yacht! She was built by Oceanco in 1993, and received an extensive refit in 2016 – featuring masses of luxurious marble, leather, velvet and mahogany panelling. The master suite sits proudly on the upper deck with elevated views. The 2016 refit saw the creation of a second VIP suite. 

Whilst all of these luxuries are wonderful to experience on a charter experience, not everyone needs a formal dining room or cigar room aboard their boat. If you’re looking for the full Above Deck experience, we have many incredible super yachts we can offer to you. However, if you’re working with a tighter budget, we can easily work within your means to create the perfect charter for you.

In the Mediterranean we offer all-inclusive packages aboard stunning gulets for as low as €1500 per person, per week. This experience gives you a week aboard a traditional wooden motor-sailing boat, with a full crew (though we can’t promise Captain Sandy will be at the helm). 

If a gulet doesn’t take your fancy, a catamaran or motor yacht will surely appeal. Whatever the case, our experts are on hand to find the best boat option for you and your group.

The Destination

On our screens, we see the Below Deck crew taking the lucky guests around the breathtaking island of Mallorca, Spain. We have an incredible selection of boats available in the Balearic Islands, so if you have your heart set on this area we’re poised to create your dream experience with you.

If you’re open to other Mediterranean destinations, you may also consider Turkey, Croatia, Greece, Italy, Montenegro, French Riviera… the list goes on. All of these destinations offer unique cultures, landscapes, sightseeing and diverse sailing experiences. If you’re not sure where might be the best location for you and your group, we’d be happy to discuss the different options in more detail.

Ok, so as we mentioned, we can’t promise that Captain sandy will be available to welcome you aboard your charter, or that Chef Kiko will be preparing all of your meals for you during your stay. However, we can guarantee a very warm welcome from an experienced, professional crew. Depending on the package you opt for, your crew will include a captain, chef and a couple of deckhands/sailors. They will take care of everything for you during your vacation – all you need to do is worry about relaxing. We can also assure you that there will be a lot less drama on your charter than you see on screen!

Ahead of your vacation, you will speak with your crew to discuss the details of your itinerary. As local experts, they will be delighted to make suggestions for the best spots you won’t want to miss out on. You will also discuss your dietary preference with your chef, so that they can prepare a delicious menu featuring fresh, local produce. All of your meals will be prepared for you during your stay, and the fridge will be kept topped up with your favorite drinks. 

Budget-Friendly

All-inclusive packages, by their very nature, are incredibly cost-effective, not to mention stress-free. There are no hidden charges once you’re aboard the boat. You have full access to the bar, water toys, and all other amenities.

If you’re keen to cut costs further, you may consider a half-board charter. This means that all of your breakfasts are included, as well as some lunches and dinners, but otherwise you can head ashore to bars or restaurants to sample the local cuisine. Again, your crew will be able to make recommendations and reservations for you, and will be happy to zip you ashore in the tender (unless you’d rather swim!).

Another great option for smaller groups, couples or individuals wishing to have a taste of the Mediterranean is a cabin charter. Cabin charters give you the opportunity to experience life aboard a luxury vessel, with your own cabin and ensuite, and the opportunity to meet some interesting fellow passengers. You’ll still have the full all-inclusive experience, with access to all facilities aboard the boat, but the itinerary will be decided by the crew. 

Let’s Go Below Deck!

This is just a brief introduction to the world of Mediterranean sailing – as seen on your new favorite TV show. The real take-away here is that these packages are totally custom, and we’re here to help you create it. Contact your charter consultant today to start planning your own Below Deck Mediterranean experience!

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 yacht names

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

Talisman

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!

20 Best Reality TV Shows Right Now

90 day fiancé's jasmine pineda reveals shocking update about gino's whereabouts amid split rumors, the golden bachelor star gerry turner accidentally exposes shocking secret on his phone.

  • Johnathan Shillingford joins Below Deck Med as the new chef for season 9.
  • Aesha Scott returns to save the show after a feud in season 8.
  • Johnathan brings a positive, energetic vibe and has a unique culinary background.

Below Deck Mediterranean season 9 has undergone a major cast shakeup, and one of the new names joining the franchise is Johnathan Shillingford. The Below Deck spin-off series will be led by Captain Sandy Yawn and former Below Deck Down Under Chief Stew Aesha Scott. Below Deck Med needed a revamp after Natalya Scudder and Tumi Mhlongo’s feud in season 8. Captain Sandy called Aesha to save Below Deck Med , and it’s likely her presence on the show will bring a lighter energy to season 9.

The Below Deck Med season 9 cast sports a slate of new franchise yachties. Captain Sandy, Aesha, and Elena Dubaich are the only returning Below Deck personalities in season 9. Notably, Elena made a very short appearance in Below Deck Med season 7 to fill in for Kyle Viljoen after he was injured. J ohnathan joins the cast as the Mustique’s new chef . As one of the newbies onboard the superyacht, it will be interesting to see how he fairs alongside franchise vets like Captain Sandy and Aesha.

Reality TV is more popular than ever. With so many to choose from, here are some of the best reality TV shows to stream or watch right now.

Johnathan Shillingford’s Age

How old is johnathan shillingford.

It’s unclear how old Johnathan is. However, his profile introduction on The Daily Dish revealed that his birthday is July 7. He’s originally from Roseau, Dominica, and his zodiac sign is Cancer. Aside from cooking, Johnathan added that he enjoys “ twerking ” and “ singing .”

Johnathan Shillingford’s Job

Johnathan shillingford wasn’t originally planning on becoming a chef.

Johnathan will serve as the Mustique’s chef on Below Deck Med season 9. Per The Daily Dish , he went into the season with seven years' of experience in the yachting industry. Johnathan has a self-proclaimed “ special skill ” for “ food and design ,” which will be on full display in Below Deck Med. On Instagram, Johnathan revealed that he has a master’s degree in architecture and “ became a chef by accident .” He took on a temporary cooking role on a yacht roughly eight years ago, which turned into a two-year-long job.

“About 8 years ago I turned my passion for food into a profession, and pivoted my career to become a Culinary Architect.”

Johnathan expressed how grateful he was to be able to turn his “ passion ” into a fully-fledged career. While he went to school for architecture, he encouraged those who go down an “ unconventional path ” to keep pushing and chase their dreams. His background in architecture is evident through some of the pictures he shares of his dishes on Instagram. Johnathan’s career in yachting allowed him to visit French Polynesia and the Tuamotu islands, his admitted favorite charter locations.

Johnathan Shillingford’s Instagram

What is johnathan shillingford’s instagram.

On the chef’s Instagram, he posts a blend of personal and professional content. Johnathan shares pictures and videos of his dishes. On the contrary, he posts fun, trendy Instagram Reels that showcase a different side of himself. Before the Below Deck Med season 9 premiere, Johnathan posted photos from his time on the Mustique with his co-stars. “ So excited for you all to see what our crew is getting up to this season, ” he captioned the post. He posed with Aesha in many pictures, hinting that the Chef and Chief Stew form a new friendship.

Aside from his personal Instagram page, Johnathan also has a professional profile. His second Instagram account, @culinaryjono, is a private page with only 17 posts. In the page’s bio, Johnathan called himself a “ head yacht chef ” and “ culinary architect .” As Below Deck Med starts airing, he may choose to switch his Instagram profile to public.

Johnathan Shillingford’s Experience On Below Deck Mediterranean

Johnathan shillingford will be a fun addition to below deck med.

Johnathan’s journey in the season is teased in the trailer for Below Deck Med season 9. It seems he got along swimmingly with Chief Stew Aesha, as they danced together in the teaser clip. During one moment, a charter guest asks Johnathan where he trained, and he reveals that he’s a “ self-taught ” chef. There was a lot of drama teased among the interior team in the trailer, and Johnathan seemed to be excluded from that conflict.

During the final moments of one charter, a guest tells Captain Sandy “ the food was okay ,” to which he replies in a confessional interview, “ damn .” It will be interesting to see how Johnathan fairs throughout the season. From the looks of the trailer, it appears that he’s a high-energy chef who gets close to Chief Aesha. It’s unclear what his journey on Below Deck Med season 9 will look like, but all will soon be revealed.

Johnathan is the new Chef on Below Deck Med season 9. With an impressive background and an interesting pathway to his career, it will be interesting to see how he fares under Captain Sandy’s leadership in the new season. Johnathan seems to be a lively person who will likely bring positive energy to the forthcoming season of Below Deck Med .

Below Deck Mediterranean season 9 premieres Monday, June 3 at 9 p.m. EDT on Bravo.

Why Below Deck Mediterranean Season 9 Is Already More Promising Than Season 8

  • Oops! Something went wrong. Please try again later. More content below

Below Deck is changing things up on us with the order its spin-offs are airing, but we are glad! After Below Deck Mediterranean Season 8 fell short with viewers, Below Deck Season 11 premiered on its heels. In typical Below Deck fashion, Below Deck Sailing Yacht Season 5 would be next to air. However, this is not the case.

Recently, Bravo threw Below Deck fans for a loop by announcing Below Deck Med Season 9. Thankfully, the trailer teases a fun and upbeat season, unlike Season 8. Below Deck Med Season 9 has the potential to save the spin-off after Season 8, and we are confident it will. Here’s why!

Aesha Scott is Season 9’s Chief Stew

View this post on Instagram A post shared by Aesha Scott (@aesha_jean)

The most exciting reveal from the Season 9 trailer was the fact that Aesha Scott will be Season 9’s Chief Stew. Aesha made her debut on Below Deck Med Season 4, where she started as a 2nd Stew. After two seasons of Below Deck Med, Aesha served as the Chief Stew on Seasons 1 and 2 of Below Deck Down Under .

Aesha has been a fan favorite since day one, in part because her sense of humor is just unmatched. In addition to being hilarious, Aesha is a great team player and a good friend to her fellow crew as well. Aesha also takes her job very seriously, and excels regardless of which position she is in. It will be a lot of fun to see Aesha work as Chief Stew under her old boss, Captain Sandy Yawn . The two make a good team, and have always worked well together.

While Tumi Mhlongo was a good Chief Stew during Season 8, she wasn’t the most personable. Tumi was good at her job, but ultimately got caught up in too much drama. Aesha, on the other hand, is not one for the drama at all. It will be refreshing to have a fun Chief Stew like Aesha, rather than a serious one like Tumi.

Season 9 features an all new cast

No shade to the Below Deck Med Season 8 cast, but we needed a change! Apart from Captain Sandy and Aesha, Season 9 will feature a completely new cast of crew members. It’s always fun to meet a bunch of new cast members at once, and we are ready!

One of the biggest problems with the Season 8 cast was the repetitive drama. 2nd Stew Kyle Viljoen worked to ensure that there was always a problem, which became exhausting. Furthermore, Bosun Luka Brunton had a chaotic boatmance with Stew Jessika Asai , which also got old. There weren’t any cast members really worth rooting for, which made the season hard to watch.

Season 9, on the other hand, already looks more enticing than Season 8. While we don’t officially know the new cast members yet, they look pretty entertaining from what the trailer shows. Hopefully this new cast can work well together, while also sprinkling in a little captivating drama. This is reality television after all!

We will get to see Captain Sandy’s engagement

View this post on Instagram A post shared by Captain Sandy (@captainsandrayawn)

The trailer teases Captain Sandy proposing to her now wife Leah Shafer , which we can’t wait to see! Sandy first announced her engagement to Leah in September, which is presumably when Season 9 was airing. The trailer teases the crew hiding nearby to take photos, while Sandy proposes to Leah at dinner. This will be a fun change of scenery, and we are excited to see this special moment onscreen.

Despite receiving criticism throughout the seasons, Sandy has shown a lot of growth as a leader. During Season 8, Sandy got along great with her crew, despite all the drama onboard. However, we really didn’t see too much of Sandy during Season 8, as the crew was so chaotic. It will be nice to see the show focus on Sandy for a little bit, as she is the heart and soul of Below Deck Med!

While Below Deck Med Season 8 may not have impressed viewers, we are confident that Season 9 will . Between an iconic Chief Stew, a new crew, and a surprise engagement, Season 9 already looks like a blast!

Yacht Bosun Iain Maclean Joins 'Below Deck Mediterranean' as Dating Life Speculation Brews

Who else is looking for a hunky boat hand to fall in love with? Well, here's Iain Maclean's relationship status, just so you know.

Alex West - Author

May 30 2024, Published 4:57 p.m. ET

There's a new leader on board the Mustique. Iain Maclean is taking over as Bosun on the ship for Season 9 of Below Deck Mediterranean and the shakeup could cause major rifts on the seas.

According to Bravo , the budding reality television star is from Cape Town, South Africa, and boasts five years in the yachting industry. In his personal time he likes "going to the gym, hiking, kloofing, surfing, jolling, music festivals, hanging out with friends and family, and going to the beach." Nowhere in there does it mention a partner, though, so it lends the question... is Iain single?

Who is Iain Maclean dating?

Sadly, there's not much to go off of in regards to Iain's dating life. While being on Bravo is sure to make him a person of interest for fans, it looks like he's pretty private on social media.

Without being able to snoop through a social media page, it's hard to say if he's dating anyone at all. For now, until fans can get a peek on board, Iain's relationship status is simply unconfirmed.

If he is single, that could definitely add a little bit of spice to the plot. After all, drama is known to arise aboard when the crew members start to catch feelings.

What is Iain Maclean's job on 'Below Deck Mediterranean'?

The yacht is full of plenty of jobs to get done and too many slip ups can be costly. If you really want to follow along on the show, you'll want to know what each crew member is supposed to be doing.

Iain is the team's Bosun which is a pretty senior level and pretty much puts him in charge of day-to-day operations. There's not many people higher than the Bosun, except the captain, of course.

According to Marine Insight , "the main duties of bosuns revolve in the deck area of the ship. The Bosun is a member of the deck department and his duty, among others, is to supervise the deck crew of the vessel."

"The bosun is also involved, under the purview of the Chief Officer (and eventually the Master), in the planning, scheduling and assigning of work to the deck crew on the ship," the site added.

This shift in leadership could prove to have a change on the overall working conditions and mix up some of that ongoing drama. We'll see how long Iain lasts considering the team's last Bosun, Ruan Irving, was fired when Captain Sandy realized quickly that something was wrong with his documents.

So far, though, it looks like Iain is more than qualified for his job with five years of yachting experience already under his belt. It's hard to say what his top concern will be coming in, but we do know what he things of Mustique. He told Bravo that he boast is "in need of some good maintenance, but a good-sized strong ship with solid bones."

Iain enjoys his job, so hopefully he'll be along for the long haul. "Honestly, I find that the job as a whole surprises most people that aren't in the industry," he added.

How to charter a Below Deck superyacht

Want to know how much it would cost to charter one of the luxury superyachts featured on US hit TV series Below Deck ? We take a look inside Below Deck ’s famous superyachts that you can charter for yourself, and find out what they have to offer charter guests on board.

Northern Sun

The star yacht of Below Deck Down Under season two, the 50.8-metre Northern Sun (originally delivered as Hokko Maru ) has lived a full and fascinating life. She was the largest yacht built by Narasaki Shipbuilding at the time and worked as an ice-class research vessel, analysing marine life and ocean currents in the North Japan Sea. As a result, she has the hardy constitution of an explorer, transformed from ship to superyacht under the stewardship of her new owners.

Northern Sun’s main deck is now dedicated entirely to entertainment, from the al fresco dining area to the main saloon with its piano and games table. Other leisure highlights include gym equipment, a dedicated library on the lower deck and an outdoor Jacuzzi, surrounded by sun pads and lounge beds. The owners’ addition of a forward seating area during her refit allows for versatile recreation, whether the mood calls for cocktail parties or quiet, waterside contemplation. 

Accommodation is for up to 12 guests across six cabins, with rich, warm interiors that feature natural materials such as narra and makore wood (commonly known as cherry mahogany). The ex-explorer also – naturally – has impressive stowing capacity. She's able to carry two Laser sailboats, scuba-diving equipment, a waterski and a two-deck-high inflatable water slide, with the broker describing her as a "family-orientated" vessel. 

Charter cost: Northern Sun is managed for charter by Ocean Independence with a weekly charter rate starting from $161,700.

60 metre Benetti motor yacht St David is the star of the tenth season of Below Deck, returning to the Caribbean with beloved Captain Lee. A finalist at the 2009 World Superyacht Awards , St David is a full-custom yacht with both interior and exterior design by British studio Winch Design .

She has made appearances at a number of high-profile events such as the Cannes Film Festival and has been spotted at various locations around the world including the Seychelles, Red Sea and Abu Dhabi. Accommodation is for 12 guests in six cabins, with a split-level master suite that lets in plenty of light.

A palatial theme characterises St David ’s social spaces, with features including a generous skylounge and a spiral staircase that leads through all three decks and is lit by a skylight in the spa pool of the sun deck. Elsewhere, St David has expansive water toy facilities and storage, including scuba dive gear, a new 7.2m tender, new Waverunners, and an electric foiling surfboard.

Charter cost: St David is managed by Morley Yachts with a weekly charter rate starting from €325,000.

The star of Below Deck Mediterranean season seven, 49.8 metre Home is the first “green” superyacht to appear on the show. Featuring a ground-breaking combination of a super-efficient Fast Displacement Hull Form by Van Oossanen Naval Architects with power provided by a hybrid propulsion system, Home boasts reduced emissions and fuel costs for the eco-conscious charter guest.

Defined by a distinctive vertical bow and large expanses of glass, Home was penned by Omega Architects and launched by Heesen in 2017. Her interiors, designed by Cristiano Gatto in a modern “Ibiza style”, can accommodate up to 12 guests in six cabins including a full-beam master cabin with a dedicated dressing room and a private office. There is also room for nine members of Below Deck crew on board, including Captain Sandy who has returned to the helm for the seventh season while Home is cruising the coasts of Malta .

The main socialising spot is up on the sundeck, complete with a Jacuzzi and sit-up bar, a shaded lounge and protection from the elements provided by glass screens. Closer to the water, a beach club with an air-conditioned gym is situated next to the swimming platform from which guests can launch the water toys including SeaBobs, Hoverboards, E-foils, Jet Skis and a Flyboard. Home also carries gear for scuba diving, waterskiing and wakesurfing for guests to make the most of their time on board.

Charter cost: Home is managed for charter by Burgess with a weekly charter rate starting from $245,000.

Sailing under her own name around the South Pacific islands of French Polynesia on Below Deck’s sixth series, the 56.4 metre My Seanna (now Starship ) was built by Delta Marine in 2000 and refitted in 2014. The Glade-Johnson designed superyacht reappeared again for season eight, where she was filmed cruising in Antigua. She is now starring in the latest season of the show, season nine, following her recent sale .

Key features include an open air Jacuzzi surrounded by an al fresco drinks bar, a gym, a sauna room, a helipad and a spacious beach club complete with a lounge, flatscreen TV and a small galley for preparing snacks or drinks. Her opulent interiors can accommodate up to 12 guests and 11 crew and even offer a home cinema and piano for entertaining in the main saloon. There are multiple toys carried on board as well, including gear for diving and spearfishing, Seabobs and equipment for underwater filming.

“The thing that I really love about My Seanna is the spacious cabins” says Worth Avenue retail charter broker, Shannon McCoy, who has appeared on episodes of Below Deck . She describes My Seanna as a “well-appointed yacht with a good collection of toys for the guests to enjoy,” offering an excellent layout with a variety of spaces that allows charterers “to have breakfast in a different place every morning or enjoy dinner whether it's outside under the sun or in the formal dining area.”

Charter cost: Starship is managed for charter by Worldwide Boat with a weekly charter rate starting from $275,000.

Lady Michelle

Sailing under her real name, Lady Michelle was the star of the sixth series of Below Deck Mediterranean , which was the latest series from the Med spin off. The 54.8 metre Benetti superyacht is the second biggest yacht ever to feature on the show, following just behind the 56.2 metre motor yacht The Wellington from season five. During season six Lady Michelle hosted charter guests in Ibenik, Croatia with Captain Sandy behind the helm.

First delivered in 2003, Lady Michelle features accommodation for up to 14 guests including a split-level master suite with its own panoramic observation lounge. Her Stefano Natucci interiors offer indoor and al fresco dining spaces, an expansive sundeck with a hot tub and dedicated gym. There’s also a range of toys at the guests’ disposal, from Jet Skis and Seabobs to fishing gear and a waterslide.

Charter cost: Lady Michelle is managed by Burgess with a weekly charter rate starting from $325,000.

The 47 metre Heesen -built superyacht Sirocco took centre stage in both the second and fourth series of Below Deck Mediterranean and introduced captain Sandy Yawn, who has become a returning cast member on the show. Launched in 2006 with a refit in 2013, Sirocco features a dark blue hull and was designed inside and out by Omega Architects . She accommodates up to 12 guests and nine crew and offers charterers an eight person Jacuzzi, a gym, plenty of al fresco entertainment areas and a well-stocked toy box comprising Jet Skis, a waterslide and gear for wakeboarding or waterskiing. Worth Avenue retail charter broker Shannon McCoy describes Sirocco as a “very, very popular charter yacht” and with her fleet of water toys and pedigree Heesen design, provides “an excellent platform for a great time at sea.”

Charter cost: Sirocco is managed for charter by Worth Avenue with a weekly charter rate starting from €195,000.

Ionian Princess

Appropriately named for the first season of Below Deck Mediterranean , which was set in Greece, the 45.7 metre Christensen -built yacht was captained by Mark Howard during filming. Launched in 2005 and last refitted in 2016, Ionian Princess features a luxurious Greek-style inspired interior finished with high-gloss sapelle mahogany joinery and custom in-laid stonework throughout. Ionian Princess can host up to 12 guests in six cabins, including two master cabins, and also boasts plentiful dining options and a sundeck equipped with a hot tub and sunpads. She also comes with a fleet of water toys from waterskiing and wakeboarding kit to Jet Skis and kayaks. Thanks to her shallow draft, she can also access hard-to-reach hidden gems in the Mediterranean Sea that other larger yachts aren’t able to. “ Ionian Princess is ideally suited for cruising the Mediterranean, which is the most sought-after region for summer yacht charters,” says her management team at charter brokers Northrop & Johnson.

Charter cost: Ionian Princess is managed by Northrop & Johnson with a weekly charter rate starting from $175,000.

Parsifal III

Parsifal III has been the star of the sailing yacht spin off of Below Deck , captained by Glenn Shephard during filming. The 54 metre Perini Navi was launched in 2005 and was designed by Rémi Tessier . She was most recently refitted in 2020, and offers accommodation for a total of 12 guests and nine crew. Her design has seen her scoop a number of World Superyacht Awards and provides her with excellent performance capabilities at sea; when the weather is on your side, Parsifal III can hit speeds of up to 18 knots under sail. While at anchor, there is still plenty to keep guests entertained with a variety of al fresco and indoor dining spaces, a flybridge hot tub, gym equipment, a swimming platform and a fully-stocked toybox.

Charter cost: Parsifal III is managed for charter by Camper & Nicholsons with a weekly charter rate starting from €195,000.

This 46.88 metre Feadship yacht has so far starred in three seasons of Below Deck , filmed while cruising in the warm-weather destinations of the US Virgin Islands, Saint Martin and Thailand. Featured under the name Valor , she is actually called BG and is owned by Canadian entrepreneur Bobby Genovese . Delivered in 1990 to a design by Frits De Voogt ,  BG  can accommodate 12 guests and 11 crew members. On board highlights include her deck hot tub, on board gym and al fresco dining spaces. She also carries an extensive fleet of toys from Jet Skis and wakeboards to a climbing wall and inflatable slide. In 2021, BG  emerged from an extensive, multi-million dollar refit, with her owner detailing that “everything that could have been done to the boat, has been done”, from tech upgrades and new toys to a fresh lick of paint on her hull. “I love that boat, and the more boats I go on, the more I like my boat,” says Genovese.

Charter cost: BG is available to charter privately , POA.

Appearing under an alias, Eros –named after the Greek god of love - was actually called Mustang Sally during season three, which was filmed in the pristine waters of The Bahamas. Since airing in 2015, the 49.07 metre superyacht has been renamed Stay Salty . Built by Trinity Yachts in 2008 to a design by Geoff Van Aller , Stay Salty accommodates a total of 12 guests and 10 crew members on board. Inside, highlights include the split-level master with a private study and panoramic views, as well as a formal dining area and skylounge with a drinks bar. Above deck, viewers would have seen guests enjoying themselves in the hot tub and al fresco dining and lounge areas. Toys carried on board that charter guests made full use of during the show include Jet Skis, fishing equipment and a beach picnic set up. Powered by twin caterpillar engines, Stay Salty can reach a top speed of up to 20 knots.

Charter cost: Stay Salty is not currently available for charter, but in 2020 was sold by Denison Yachting with an asking price of $12,900,000.

Andy Cohen Sent Captain Sandy a 'Generous Gift' After Missing Her Wedding

Andy Cohen couldn't attend Below Deck Mediterranean star Captain Sandy Yawn ‘s wedding to Leah Shafer - but he sent a memorable present.

"He was very generous - he sent us a very generous gift. He actually wanted to come. He said, ‘Yes, send me the invite,'" Sandy, 59, exclusively told Us Weekly . "It would have been awesome to have him there but it was really sweet - his message and his gift."

After Leah, 49, called Andy "so supportive," Sandy opened up about their bond with the Bravo executive producer, 55, adding, "He responds to Leah's messages. It's really cute."

Sandy has been a Below Deck staple since she joined the Mediterranean iteration in 2017. The first (and only) female captain in the franchise also made history when she briefly crossed over to the OG series, stepping in for Captain Lee Rosbach , in 2023.

From Lee to Sandy! A Guide to Every Captain in the 'Below Deck' Franchise

Fans who have watched Sandy lead Below Deck Med will get a glimpse into her personal life when she gets engaged to Leah on the upcoming season . In addition to the proposal, Sandy and Leah's wedding on May 11 in Florida was filmed for Bravo - and viewers might catch a glimpse of some other Below Deck alums too.

"We only had a capacity of 60 people. So with our family and our intimate friends, it was hard to invite people that we really wanted there from Bravo," Sandy explained. "So we had the people that have been in our lives since the beginning. Because they saw me, [when] I was single when I started the show. Then everybody knows when I met Leah because that's all I talked about."

Sandy still found a way to incorporate people from Bravo and NBC in her special day, including executive producer Nadine Rajabi and Vice President of Current Production for Bravo Josh Brown .

Former 'Below Deck Mediterranean' Stars: Where Are They Now?

"[We had] Nadine there and Josh Brown and just people that have been in my life from NBC. We really wanted people there [such as] Kate Chastain [even though] we're not in each other's lives on a daily basis. And then Aesha Scott , of course," she said of two of the franchise's most popular chief stews.

After tying the knot in front of their friends and family, Sandy and Leah opened up to Us about their excitement for their future.

"At this stage of our lives … every moment we have together, we make it into a honeymoon," Leah gushed. "Like, it doesn't have to be set days. Even yesterday, we're walking around Tampa and we just saw this little green two-seater boat and we're like, ‘Let's take it out.' You know, every second is a honeymoon for us."

She continued, "We're just to find this kind of love at this stage in our lives and to have the acceptance by our family and friends. It really is a beautiful love story and celebration, and that's the truth."

Below Deck's Captain Sandy Yawn and Leah Shafer's Relationship Timeline

The couple said they had been living a "fairy tale" since their wedding - and, naturally, they honeymooned on a yacht.

"We already did a little [honeymoon]. My boss, John Flynn, gave us his boat - it's a brand new Sunseeker 90-footer with a crew - and we went to Little Palm Island [in Florida]," Sandy shared. "We don't have a lot of time because we're building a house and we're moving and Leah's daughter's graduating so we had three days on his boat. It's where you go where you don't want to be bothered. [It] is the most exclusive island ever since the last hurricane that came through did a lot of damage."

Sandy had nothing but praise for Little Palm Island, adding, "We had great food. I ate a lot because we didn't eat a lot before the wedding. We made up for it. We slept a lot. Oh, my God we rested, we played in the sun … [and we were] playing in the water."

VIDEO: Below Deck Mediterranean Season 4 yacht & destination revealed

By Editorial Team   18 April 2019

It has been revealed that Below Deck Mediterranean Season 4 has been filmed around the glittering cruising grounds of the South of France , with the 47m/154ft superyacht SIROCCO playing host to the season 4 crew and guests.

Hitting our screens on June 3, Below Deck Mediterranean is making its triumphant return for season 4, and this time we can expect Captain Sandy Yawn and her crew to be exploring the billionaire’s playground of the French Riviera .

The home port for season 4 has been identified as Vieux Port Golfe Juane, which sits in between the glitzy yachting marina of Antibes and Cannes. This prime situation means there will be a number of excellent locations on the itinerary for season 4; take a look at a South of France yacht charter itinerary for more information.

Which yacht will be starring in Season 4 of Below Deck Mediterranean?

Superyacht SIROCCO will be starring in season 4 of Below Deck Mediterranean. She is a returning favourite of the show, having starred in season 2, when the crew headed to Croatia. The Heesen-built motor yacht has a variety of alluring features, including an 8-person jacuzzi, exotic interiors and a multimedia entertainment room.

If you'd like to view a complete run-down of Below Deck yachts, their real names and how much it costs to rent them , you can head over to our article. We even have the scoop on the brand new series 'Below Deck Sailing Vessel '.

Which crew members are starring in Below Deck Mediterranean season 4?

As well as a returning superyacht, season 4 of Below Deck Mediterranean will also see plenty of familiar faces in the crew. An original fixture since season one, Chief Stewardess Hannah Ferrier will be back again to head up the interior crew, under the guidance of Captain Sandy Yawn at the helm. Below her, Colin Macy-O’Toole and freshly-promoted bosun Joao Franco will be striving to ensure smooth sailing.

Two new deckhands will be joining them; Travis Michalzik and Jack Stirrup are making their television debuts on the show, and Bravo TV has hinted that both of them could be at the centre of drama during season 4.

Below Deck season 4 cast members

Adding to the interior crew, Hannah will be joined by experienced second stew Aesha Scott and third stew Anastasia Surmava. The three seemed to enjoy a budding friendship, over the course of filming, with Scott posting a picture of them laughing under the sun in Antibes.

Marking a first for the Below Deck franchise, Mila Kolomeitseva will be the first female chef in Below Deck’s history. The experienced chef boasts Cordon Bleau training from Paris, so she should be right at home in the French Riviera setting; but she has her work cut out for her after suffering from a bout of food poisoning before the first charter.

View this post on Instagram Filming this show was easily the most fun thing I’ve ever done!! SO excited for that first episode to air and laugh as everyone rips the shit out of me. I’d say these two probably managed everything a bit more gracefully than I did 😂 A post shared by Aesha Jean (@aesha_jean) on Apr 16, 2019 at 7:18pm PDT

Could Chef Ben be back?

Social media was sent into a frenzy when a picture was posted showing Chef Ben Robinson hanging out with the crew of Below Deck Mediterranean season 4 in a restaurant in Nice. While the Below Deck yachties have been known to meet up during filming, fans were quick to point out that Chef Mila did not appear to be present at the table. This would not be the first time Ben has swooped in mid-way through a charter season to help out- after Chef Leon was sent packing in Below Deck season 3, it was Ben who stepped in to save the day.

If you're counting down the days until the original Below Deck is back, check out our article, which tells you the destination and the yacht which will feature in Below Deck season 7 .

Where was Below Deck Mediterranean Season 4 filmed?

Below Deck Mediterranean season 4 was filmed around the South of France’s Cote d’Azur. As mentioned above, the home port has been identified as Vieux Port Golfe Juane, which is located in close proximity to the buzzing bars and nightclubs of Antibes. The yachties will have plenty of opportunities to let loose at the end of every charter.

Bay and promenade in the South of France

On the shores of Antibes, the crew can expect to find picturesque squares filled with lively cafes, boutique shops and authentic ice-cream parlours. Off the coast, the waters of Antibes are crystal-clear, creating the perfect opportunity to drop anchor and enjoy some watersports.

The historic city of Cannes, home to the iconic Cannes Film Festival, will be one of the destinations on the yacht’s itinerary. As well as some great beaches, the romantic city is also home to cobbled streets, ornate Belle Epoque architecture and fantastic waterfront restaurants.

Cannes town aerial view

One of the most iconic destinations in the South of France, St Tropez is a superyacht playground. The once-humble fishing village is now a happening hotspot, with a vibrant shopping scene, relaxing beach clubs and wild entertainment line-up in the evenings.

The land of luxury and a certified superyacht hub, Monaco is awash with glitz and glamour. When the F1 Monaco Grand Prix comes to town, the pint-sized principality is transformed into a hive of celebrities and F1 legends.  The region is equally alluring at other times of the year, with plenty of designer fashion houses, world-class restaurants and the casino of Monte-Carlo to keep guests happy.

Ile Saint Marguerite

Set adrift from the mainland, Ile Saint Marguerite is a lovely little island covered in pine forests, with plenty of charming beaches located here and on the neighbouring Ile St Honorat. Guests exploring this island chain, known as Les Lerins, can expect to see the legendary cell of the 'Man with the Iron Mask' or dine at an ancient monastery, where the monks make their own honey, wine and lavender oil.

Nice and the surrounding coastlines offer up some of the most blissful beaches in the region, all of which are backed by palm trees swaying in the mind. The beautiful city is brimming with examples of classic French architecture, with warm stone houses, elaborate fountains and plenty of bars and nightclubs.

Calanque de Saint Barthelemy

This beautiful, secluded beach can almost exclusively only be accessed by boat and superyachts who know about this secret hideaway can drop anchor off the coast and let their charter guests take a tender in. It’s an excellent site for a beach picnic, thanks to the wide expanse of beach lapped by crystalline water.

Inside Captain Sandy Yawn and Wife Leah Shafer’s Honeymoon After ‘Fairy Tale’ Wedding (Exclusive)

Inside Captain Sandy Yawn and Wife Leah Shafers Fairy Tale Honeymoon to Little Palm Island

Below Deck Mediterranean star Captain Sandy Yawn and her wife, Leah Shafer , have been living a “fairy tale” since their wedding.

“We already did a little [honeymoon]. My boss, John Flynn, gave us his boat — it’s a brand new Sunseeker 90-footer with a crew — and we went to Little Palm Island,” Yawn, 59, exclusively told Us Weekly on Friday, May 17, during a joint interview with Shafer, 50. “We don’t have a lot of time because we’re building a house and we’re moving and Leah’s daughter’s graduating so we had three days on his boat.”

The Bravo star added, “It’s where you go where you don’t want to be bothered. [It] is the most exclusive island ever since the last hurricane that came through did a lot of damage.”

Yawn and Shafer went on wave runners in “the bluest water” and “explored” the town in Florida.

“We had great food. I ate a lot because we didn’t eat a lot before the wedding,” Yawn added. “We made up for it. We slept a lot. Oh, my God we rested, we played in the sun … [and we were] playing in the water.”

Yawn and Shafer have been together since 2018. They wed earlier this month in a “beautiful” ceremony aboard a yacht. While their honeymoon was abridged due to prior commitments, they are planning a secondary getaway.

“I got my fairy tale, but [in] July, [we] will probably take a trip,” Shafer said. “We’re going to do something.”

“For me, [getting married] was so surreal,” Shafer said. “Sandy was telling everybody that she didn’t realize how in marriage felt so amazing [and] to know that I’m actually going to take her name — and I’m in the midst of changing my name to Leah Rae Yawn — [and] to not be a girlfriend anymore, it just feels good to be like, ‘Wow, I’m her wife.’ When we check into a hotel, it’s like, ‘It’s the Yawn party.’ It’s a really good feeling.”

Below Deck Mediterranean returns to Bravo Monday, June 3 at 9 p.m. ET.
