Below Deck yacht names revealed - and how much it costs to rent the celebrity superyachts

YachtCharterFleet

Since 2013, Below Deck has been captivating TV audiences across the globe by offering a highly sought-after 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 and Below Deck Sailing Vessel.

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.

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.

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 on Below Deck. 

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.

For the first time in Below Deck's history, filming took place in the jaw-droppingly beautiful cruising grounds of St.Kitts and Nevis. This two-island nation spellbinds yacht charter guests with its palm-fringed beaches, mellow waters and innumerable bays.

Season 8 saw superyacht STARSHIP (known as MY SEANNA) become the second yacht, after VALOR, to feature in more than one series of the show, having been the motor yacht on which season 6 was filmed. Airing for the first time on 2 November 2020 the show followed her to the beautiful cruising grounds of the Caribbean.

Viewers were introduced to a number of new faces, as the show returned to the Caribbean for the first time since season 5. Filming for the new season was wrapped up earlier than normal to keep the cast and crew safe in light of the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic.

For the third time in Below Deck history, charter yacht BG (known as VALOR) was back as the Season 7 superyacht. 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. 

Season 7 saw the crew head even further afield, with filming taking place around the resplendent cruising grounds of Thailand. From the iconic Phi Phi Islands to the beautiful beaches of Ko Yao Yai, the crew were treated to a truly memorable South East Asian experience.

Airing in October 2018, Below Deck season 6 featured an almost entirely brand-new cast and the largest superyacht ever to be featured on the show: motor yacht STARSHIP (aka yacht MY SEANNA). She is known for being among one of the most opulent yachts on the charter market due to her ornate interiors.

It is the first time in the show's history that a yacht has appeared under its original name. Plus, set in the South Pacific islands of Tahiti, the season was the first to be filmed in a destination outside of the Caribbean, presenting a sought-after insight into more far-flung cruising grounds.

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, the luxury yacht 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.

Following on from the success of Below Deck, a 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 for seasons two to six. Chief Stewardess Hannah Ferrier was another permanent fixture on the show from season one to five, before leaving the show in season six.

Premiering on 3 May 2016, Below Deck Mediterranean is a spin-off of the increasingly popular franchise. 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. Truly opulent, she bears interiors which 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.

This is the first time the Below Deck franchise has branched away from multi-million motor yachts, and the sailing vessel component of the latest spin-off series is expected to add even more drama and excitement.

This is partly due to the fact that the design of luxury sailing yachts creates far more confined crew areas than we are used to seeing on the original Below Deck. Sailing yachts generally 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.

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.
