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.
