The pristine Mediterranean waters of Malta will serve as the ideal backdrop for the new season of Bravo’s “Below Deck Mediterranean” which will be premiering next Monday, with Captain Sandy Yawn and 163-foot motor yacht “Home.”
Different from previous charter seasons, Sandy is working with a complex hybrid vessel making it more unpredictable to navigate. To ensure smooth sailing this year, Sandy brings on a trio of new department heads, but when surprising friction in the galley intensifies between the Chief Stew and Chef, who came onto the boat as colleagues and friends, tension permeates through the entire boat.
Meanwhile, the deck team faces an uphill battle when one crew member is unable to adapt to the high demands of Mediterranean superyachting, forcing others to pick up the slack. From difficult charter guests to roller-coaster “boatmances” and challenges with hierarchy on board, these yachties go to unthinkable lengths to survive the charter season.
“Bravo’s Below Deck Season 7 filmed on location in Malta will provide viewers with an excellent opportunity to see why Malta is a favorite hub for Mediterranean yachting,” said Michelle Buttigieg, Malta Tourism Authority Representative for North America, adding that “exploring the Maltese islands by yacht is like sailing through 7,000 years of history. With approximately 122 miles of Coastline, Malta’s clear blue sea allows yachting guests to enjoy beautiful, secluded beaches, an abundance of reefs, stunning caverns and caves.”
“Below Deck Mediterranean” is produced by 51 Minds with Nadine Rajabi, Jill Goslicky, Mark Cronin, Wes Denton, Shane Maroufkhani, Tania Hamidi, Christian Sarabia and Zachary Klein serving as executive producers.Actress Tori Spelling Spotted In Malta
Malta has welcomed yet another star, as actress Tori Spelling landed on the island yesterday. Having starred as Donna Martin on Beverly Hills, 90210, which started in 1990, Spelling has become a household name for many.
She is now staying in a St. Julian’s hotel in Malta for the rest of the month, appearing happy to have arrived to her welcome treat and warm evenings. And Spelling seems to have fallen in love with the island at first sight: “It’s already a love story”, she wrote on her Instagram story.
She is the latest celebrity spotted on the island, just a week after the Mediterranean Below Deck crew was seen filming on a superyacht.
The crew behind a popular maritime series have been spotted filming in Malta – and local fans most definitely noticed.
Below Deck and its various spinoffs, including Below Deck Mediterranean, have had viewers at the edge of their seats as drama unfolds around Captain Sandy and her crew as the rich and wealthy live out their best lives aboard glamorous superyachts around the world.
Though the newest season is all about Croatia, the crew was spotted by some keen-eyed Maltese fans doing some work while enjoying some sun and fun in Mellieħa.
The crew was seen aboard the superyacht, named HOME, whilst possibly shooting their next big scene. Sources have revealed that the crew will be shooting scenes across Malta, Gozo, and Comino in the coming weeks. The crew is also expected to dine at local restaurants.
Some local crew members are even working alongside the Below Deck Mediterranean team.
