Below Deck Mediterranean alum Malia White celebrated a yachting career milestone, and the Below Deck family has come out to congratulate her.

Malia was a green deckhand when Below Deck Med viewers first met her in Season 2, more focused on her love triangle than work.

When she returned for Season 5 of the show, Malia had spent time honing her skills on deck and moved up the ranks to bosun.

The brunette beauty held that position for two seasons on the show before deciding to take a step back to further her yachting career.

It looks like that was the right decision.

Malia just revealed she’s once again moved up in the yachting ranks.

Taking to Instagram earlier this week, Malia revealed that she hit another one of her career goals. With a Guinness in one hand and a piece of paper with the word PASS written on it, Malia was all smiles over her big news.

“It’s official: your latest Officer of the Watch! ⚓️ Thank you to all those who’ve supported me and helped get me here today. A HUGE shoutout to Brayton @thebridgedeck for helping me prepare. It’s been a stressful studying period but it paid off today! ? #oow #officer #yachting #deckcrew #girlsondeck #results,” she captioned the post tagging the location as La Ciotat France.

Malia has become an officer and is now well on her way to becoming a captain. It didn’t take long for her Below Deck family to rally around Malia, using social media to congratulate her.
