Below Deck Mediterranean is back for a second sailing! And there’s some big changes for Season 2 — with seven new cast members joining the nine-person crew.
There’s also a whole new superyacht, the 154ft Sirocco, after we exclusively told how last year’s boat the Ionian Princess was put up for sale.
And while the 2016 season took place in Greece, this year Below Deck Mediterranean is headed to Croatia.
The only remaining castmates from the show’s initial run are Chief Stew Hannah Ferrier and deckhand Bobby Giancola.
Without further ado, let’s meet the Season 2 crew…
Sandy Yawn, Captain
Sandy has more than 27 years on boats under her belt, and has worked across the globe.
She is one of just a few female captains in the industry — and is a tough cookie, having survived everything from cancer to being chased by pirates.
You can check her out and keep up with her latest goings-on on her Twitter.
Adam Glick, Chef
When not on boats, Adam is a free spirit, living in a van and surfing whenever he can.
He has been working on yachts for the past decade but hopes to one day open a chain of taco stands — by the beach, obviously.
Hannah Ferrier, Chief Stew
Ozzie Hannah returns from Season 1, but it’s actually her seventh season as a Chief Stew in the industry.
She’s all for working hard and likes to keep her boat to the highest standards, but also likes to let her hair down. She says she wants to have a “softer approach” to managing the crew this season.
Christine “Bugsy” Drake, Second Stew
Bugsy is from South Africa and used to work as a chief stew, but has spent some time off boats to try and give herself some TLC, and said before the season started that she was more than happy to be second stew on the Sirocco as it means less pressure.
Find out more about her and see some of her pics on her Instagram.
Lauren Cohen, Third Stew
Lauren hasn’t always lived the Below Deck life, and used to work as a cheerleader in the NFL before spending a year working in the Hamptons.
She’s a glass half full kind of person, and likes to keep people entertained.
Bobby Giancola, Deckhand
Bobby, the second returnee from Season 1, and a memorable one at that — after his crush on fellow crew member Julia became a main part of the storyline.
He’s still looking for the love of his life, but says he’ll be much more focused on work this season.
Wesley Walton, Bosun
Wesley is a bit of a brain-box, with a degree in economics and environmental.
He’s always been a high-flier, and not just in class, but in everything from sports to chess.
He grew up in South Africa, and became bosun when he was just 25.
Malia White, Deckhand
As Captain Sandy being the exception shows, yachting is a male-dominated industry.
So there’s no better way to prepare for it than to have five older brothers, like Malia did growing up.
She’s also just 5ft tall, so has had to learn how to stand up for herself in other ways.
She’s new to the yachting scene, but is a certified dive master so is used to working on boats.
She’s single, but says she’s not in a rush to find a long-term partner anytime soon.
Check her out on Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter.
Max Hagley, Deckhand
Brit Max is a big party-goer, and enjoyed a stint as a bartender in European party capital Ibiza.
He’s always cracking the jokes, and while he’s never worked on a superyacht before, he’s a big believer in faking it till you make it.
You can find him on Facebook.
Below Deck Mediterranean airs Tuesdays at 9/8c on Bravo.
