Below Deck Sailing Yacht premieres in February and will be the third entry in the hit franchise.
Last year, Bravo announced that they would be expanding their hit Below Deck franchise with a new edition set on the east coast of the U.S. and today, we got our first look at Below Deck Sailing Yacht.
The franchise is responsible for some of Bravo’s highest ratings, even out performing some of The Real Housewives, so it was a no-brainer for the network to capitalize on the success and expand the universe with a new spinoff.
According to the network, #BelowDeckSailing will premiere on Monday, February 3 at 9pm and will follow the crew of a 180-foot-long sailing yacht called The Parsifal III. Earlier today, Bravo released a first look at the new show on their official Twitter page, sharing a preview of the upcoming season.
According to an official release from the network, the spinoff will highlight eight of the ship’s crew members. The newbies are sure to have every aspect of their behaviour analyzed by a very savvy reality TV audience but at least one of them will be familiar with how all of this works. Adam Glick appeared on Below Deck Mediterranean’s first two seasons and will be returning to this new show as Chef, as well.
The rest of the cast are as follows:
• Captain Glenn Shephard
• Paget Berry, First Mate
• Ciara Duggan, Deckhand
• Brian Hissey, Chief Engineer
• Madison Stalker, Second Stew
• Georgia Grobler, Third Stew
• Jenna MacGillivray, Chief Stew
• And Parker McCown, Deckhand
While this new spinoff is set to continue the crazy that we know and love from the franchise, the network promises that Sailing Yacht has upped thing even further. “The physicality of working on a sailing yacht brings new challenges to these young, attractive and adventurous yachties who are ready to work hard and play harder,” reads the show’s official description.

“Below deck, tensions between the crew are amplified by the conditions of working aboard a sailing yacht which has a sleeker design than their motor yacht counterparts, with a smaller galley, almost non-existent stew stations and cramped living quarters. And while two yachties start a roller coaster romance so intense that it might sink the yacht, resident couple Paget and Ciara’s existing relationship gets pushed to new boundaries.”
While this spinoff certainly has a lot to live up to, if the first look and the official description are any indication, it won’t have any problem doing so.
