Below Deck Sailing Yacht Season 5: When does it premiere?

Captain Glenn Shephard on Below Deck Sailing Yacht

Below Deck Season 11 has yet to hit Bravo airwaves, but that hasn’t stopped fans from asking about Below Deck Sailing Yacht Season 5.

Captain Glenn Shepard and his Parsifal III crew have been fan favorites since the show was revamped for Season 2.

Fans wait to have Below Deck Sailing Yacht back on Bravo airwaves each year.

This year is no exception, especially after fans were less than thrilled with Below Deck Med Season 8.

Let’s look at when the sailing show will be back on the small screen.

When will Below Deck Sailing Yacht Season 5 premiere?

Unfortunately, the wait for Captain Glenn to return with some new and returning crew members will be awhile. There is an entire season of the OG show to air before we get to see the sailing show.

Below Deck Season 11 premieres on Monday, February 5 at 9/8c. If Bravo follows past seasons, there will be anywhere from 15 to 17 episodes of Below Deck featuring Captain Kerry Titheradge.

Based on that timeline, Below Deck would air the Season 11 finale in mid to late May, with a possible reunion show to follow. That means Below Deck Sailing Yacht Season 5 will kick off at the beginning of June.

Even if the Below Deck Season 11 finale ends in mid-May, the Memorial Day holiday will push back Below Deck Sailing Yacht. Bravo won’t start a new season on a holiday, that’s for sure.

This points to four more months until the Parsifal III guys return to Bravo airwaves.

What else do we know about Below Deck Sailing Yacht Season 5?

We know the upcoming Below Deck Sailing Yacht season was filmed last summer. Photos of Daisy and Gary filming on Parsifal III were leaked well ahead of Bravo’s confirmation of the show’s renewal at BravoCon.

Colin wasn’t in any pictures, and his travel adventures at the time have fans believing he won’t be on the next season.

Meanwhile, Gary’s future on the show remains up in the air amid sexual assault allegations made against him by a production team member.

As Monsters and Critics previously reported, the scandal broke right after filming, and Gary was soon removed from the BravoCon list of attendees.

So far, Bravo and 51 Minds has been tight-lipped on what that means for his presence on Below Deck Sailing Yacht. Gary has played a key role on the show since Season 2. Editing him out or reducing his role will drastically alter the season.

Keep checking back for more updates, as details on the next sailing season will be here before we know it.

Below Deck Sailing Yacht is currently on hiatus on Bravo. Below Deck Season 11 premieres on Monday, February 5, at 9/8c on Bravo.

Gary needs to be gone. Don’t diminish what the victim said! He’s a drunk, aggressive, horrible person with no boundaries. What gives him the right to act in this way?

Below Deck Sailing Yacht Season 5 Cast & Charter Guests

Leaks of the ongoing production of Below Deck Sailing Yacht season 5 continue to surface online. In the middle of June, a fan spotted superyacht Parsifal III and the BDSY season 5 crew filming in Ibiza, Spain . A day later, fans spotted the Below Deck Sailing Yacht season 5 cast eating dinner at a restaurant in Ibiza’s old town, Dalt Vila. And on July 10, another BDSY fan on a cruise in Ibiza spotted the sailboat with a group of charter guests off the coast of Ibizan village Es Cubells .

Although Bravo hasn’t yet announced Captain Glenn Shephard ‘s BDSY season 5 crew, Show Star News did some sleuthing and found out some of the returning cast members, some of the possible new crew, as well as charter guests sailing in Ibiza for BDSY season 5’s charter season.

Captain Glenn recently did interviews where he stated he’d be back working on Parsifal III in June. It’s no big surprise the kind and gregarious Canadian captain is back for another BDSY season. Glenn’s very popular with the fanbase.

A little more surprising, however, are pictures confirming both Chief Stewardess Daisy Kelliher and First Officer Gary King are back for another charter season. The two left a bad taste in fans’ mouths while on Below Deck Sailing Yacht season 4 . Fans found King behaving like a creepy older uncle by chasing after much younger stews like Mads Herrera grotesque. Viewers also found it terrible he went for Kelliher while his good mate MacRae started a boatmance with her. Daisy’s relentless flirtations and denial of any responsibility in the tardiness of service or essentially two-timing MacRae didn’t sit well with fans, either.

Perhaps King and Kelliher will redeem themselves on the latest season. The two-part BDSY season 4 reunion revealed both of them were in Spain. Fans suspect they both recorded the reunion in the same Ibiza hotel room, sparking rumors Daisy and Gary are dating on BDSY season 5 .

Unfortunately, Chief Engineer Colin MacRae parted ways with Bravo after his rocky relationship with Daisy on season 4. He’s currently sharing videos on his YouTube Channel Parlay Revival of him sailing across the Pacific Ocean on his Catamaran, spending time in the French Polynesia with his girlfriend Brittany Amodeo .

The rest of the BDSY season 4 crew didn’t return at the start of the BDSY season 5, according to pictures on a crew night out in Ibiza and the locations of the BDSY season 4 cast during the virtual reunion. However, South Carolinian deckhand Chase Lemacks returning midway through season 5 looks likely after he stopped posting his daily content on Instagram and is following suspected new crew members.

Some fans thought the one blonde on the BDSY season 5 crew night out pictures was Daisy’s sister Bonnie . However, the woman looks very similar to yachtie Danni Warren, who’s Instagram recently was followed by both Gary and BDSY season 5 charter guests. She’s also follows and is followed by Charter Yacht Chef Cloyce Martin . Chef Cloyce’s recent follows are all people currently located in Ibiza, so there’s a good chance he’s BDSY season 5’s chef, too. Chase recently followed them both, too.

Is There a Below Deck Sailing Yacht Season 5 Release Date?

Image of Chris McMullen

Between Below Deck, Below Deck Down Under and Below Deck Sailing Yacht , Bravo’s nautical reality TV franchise is ruling the ocean waves. But is there a Below Deck Sailing Yacht Season 5 release date? Here’s the answer.

Does Below Deck Sailing Yacht Season 5 Have a Release Date?

There is no confirmed release date or even a release window for Below Deck Sailing Yacht Season 5. Bravo confirmed a new season back at BravoCon in 2023, though Bravo’s website calls it Season 6 for some reason.

Season 5 seems to have finished filming (via ScreenRant ) and the general consensus is that it was filmed in and around Ibiza, finishing around March. However, the four previous seasons of Below Deck Sailing Yacht had all begun airing by this time of year. So what’s going on?

It could be down to unexpected production delays and a host of other issues that crop up when you’re filming a reality TV show, especially in an environment other than a studio. But, as reported by Dexerto , Reddit has a theory. And they could be right.

Why Has Below Deck Sailing Yacht Season 5 Been Delayed?

Reddit thinks that Season 5 of Below Deck Sailing Yacht has been delayed due to the sexual misconduct allegations against First Mate Gary King.

“Do we think the delay in season 5 is because they’re potentially not going to air it at all given that Gary was a main cast member?” asks Redditor PowerfulHorror987 . It’s possible, certainly, but it seems unlikely that Bravo would simply ditch an entire wrapped season.

However, it could be that they’re trying to minimize King’s involvement or edit him out completely, which could be a difficult task. As First Mate, he’d have a pretty significant role and a lot of on-screen time so if that’s indeed what’s happening, they may end up excising whole scenes.

Even though the Below Decks franchise is reality TV, there’s often an argument/issue of the week which is threaded throughout each episode. If any of those threads heavily involve Gary, and Bravo has chosen to dial his appearances back, they could find themselves having to assemble new ‘storylines’.

“I have a very strong feeling it’s going to be one of the weirdest seasons to watch because they’ve never had to edit out a HoD before. It’s probably going to feel very disjointed and like it’s missing huge chunks,” another Redditor adds .

But that’s just a theory, Reddit could be barking up entirely the wrong tree. So, the answer to is there a Below Deck Sailing Yacht Season 5 release date is no.

Is Captain Kerry Going to Fire More Crew Members After “F-cking Blatant Disrespect”?

Certain Below Deck crew members didn't seem to follow the captain's instructions.

below deck sailing yacht season 5 cast reddit

Through watching  Below Deck and its offshoots over the years, we've learned how important it is to obey your captain's instructions. When you're working on a boat — whether it's a mega yacht , a dinghy, or any other floating structure — there are certain rules that need to be followed. Cabin inspections, for example, are no joke.

How to Watch

Watch  Below Deck on Bravo Mondays at 9/8c and next day on  Peacock . Catch up on the Bravo App .

During Season 11, Episode 16 of Below Deck , which premiered Monday, May 20, Captain Kerry Titheradge made a morning announcement that cabin inspections were on the day's schedule. It also just so happened to be the last charter of the season.

"All crew, all crew, let's get this show on the road. Also, at six o'clock tonight, cabin inspections . Make sure everything is in order," he said via walkie talkie as his staff were beginning the day, eliciting plenty of grumbles.

While most of the crew did their part in cleaning up their quarters on the St. David , two cast members didn't bother to tidy:  Kyle Stillie and Ben Willoughby .

Captain Kerry's reaction to Kyle and Ben's cabins

The sight of Kyle and Ben's cabins made Kerry's "blood boil," he said in an interview. 

"No attempt to make it clean, it's like a bomb's gone off," he added. "It's disrespectful. I'm f-cking beside myself. I'm very old school; there is a hierarchy. You don't have to understand why a superior makes a decision, you just have to go do what you're asked to do. There's no bigger 'f-ck you' to a captain than to go against what he says."

Does captain kerry fire kyle or ben after cabin inspections.

After seeing their disappointing living quarters, Captain Kerry confronted Kyle and Ben.

"Did you guys not take seriously inspection today?" asked the captain, to which Ben replied they were "just working" — the wrong excuse, in Captain Kerry's eyes. 

"It wasn't just a little messy. It was f-cking rude. Every single person on this boat went to their cabin. Chef broke out from cooking food to go. Interior did their bit. You're the f-cking bosun, mate," responded Captain Kerry. "It's f-cking blatant disrespect. I've shown both of you respect. I've been out there busting my f-cking ass to help you guys out, and this is the way you guys say f-cking thank you?"

The Below Deck episode ended before Kerry's lecture could continue, but he has yet to fire Kyle or Ben.

Why do cabin checks happen on Below Deck ?

As Captain Kerry explained, "We have standards to uphold throughout the boat. Standards of cleanliness, tidiness. And we are now due to do cabin inspections, make sure there's no fire hazards, make sure the escapes aren't blocked. It's part of health and safety that we do this."

Chief Stew Fraser Olender also gave some insight into the cabin check process. "As a yachtie, cabin checks can be weekly, they can be twice a month, they can be monthly. But they do happen, and they're important. It shows how much you respect your vessel."

What happens next for Kyle and Ben? You'll have to watch the newest episode of  Below Deck, which airs Mondays at 9/8c on Bravo,   to find out.

Below Deck Stars With The Biggest Egos

  • Reality stars on Below Deck often develop egos from media attention and rotating casts.
  • Beloved crew like Aesha Scott can return, but egos can inflate, affecting behavior.
  • Captain Sandy is known for authoritative decisions, while chefs like Adam and Ben let their egos shine.

Plenty of Below Deck crew members who've been on the show have massive egos. Reality stars garner large egos, inflated by the press and the attention surrounding their shows. Below Deck often features a rotating cast, meaning individuals have one chance to make a good impression on the audience . This can lead to crew members acting out of character and putting on for the cameras. There were plenty of crew members from Below Deck season 11 who demonstrated villainous behavior that stirred up drama for the show.

There have been so many personalities featured in the Below Deck franchise. Some have been deemed fan-favorite crew members who return for multiple appearances. Aesha Scott is one of those beloved personalities, ranking as one of the best Below Deck chief stews ever. The crew, captains, and audience take a liking to some crew over others. Sometimes, when a Below Deck star starts getting a little attention, it can all go to their head and, in return, their egos.

20 Best Reality TV Shows Right Now

Reality TV is more popular than ever. With so many to choose from, here are some of the best reality TV shows to stream or watch right now.

Captain Sandy Yawn

Below deck mediterranean seasons 2-9.

Captain Sandy Yawn has been the resident captain on Below Deck Mediterranean since season 2 of the spin-off series. She’s known for her no-nonsense attitude that some think makes her the best Below Deck captain of the franchise. On the contrary, Captain Sandy has had to make some tough, controversial decisions throughout the years. She is not afraid to exert her power as captain, which can intimidate her crew. Captain Sandy has the experience to be a little bit egotistical, and Below Deck Med wouldn’t be the same without her.

Below Deck Mediterranean Seasons 3 & 4, Below Deck Down Under Season 2

João Franco’s behavior during Below Deck Med season 3 was entirely unacceptable. He's so egotistical he self-named his alter-ego, Jezabob , who would come out in his worst moments. João channeled Jezabob when he was drinking. When he was drunk, he degraded many of his fellow women crew members and got rather aggressive. João called Aesha a “ Russian prostitute ” and broke a glass in his hands one night when the crew was out. He changed his ways in Below Deck Med season 4, but his ego was only inflated more when Captain Sandy promoted him to bosun.

Rachel Hargrove

Below deck seasons 8-10.

Despite having somewhat of an ego, Chef Rachel Hargrove is still one of the best Below Deck chefs . She was the chef during Below Deck seasons 8-10 and was beloved for her impeccable cooking skills. At times, Chef Rachel could be dismissive when given requests. During Below Deck season 8, she fled the yacht when she didn’t want to make what the guests wanted for dinner . Sometimes, it was Chef Rachel’s way or the highway, though she still succeeded at winning over guests and fans alike.

Below Deck Sailing Yacht Season 1 & Below Deck Mediterranean Seasons 2 & 3

Adam Glick was the first chef on Below Deck Sailing Yacht and appeared in two seasons of Below Deck Med . He notably went against a request for no onions in any dishes from a group of charter guests during Below Deck Med season 2. Chef Adam did not care about their no-onion rule at all. He was asked on three separate occasions not to cook onions but did so anyway. Chef Adam thought that he knew best and continued to include onions in their food despite being asked not to.

Leon Walker

Below deck season 3.

Chef Leon Walker had an abundance of talent during Below Deck season 3. However, where he faulted was his ability to apply critique. Chef Leon butted heads with Chief Stew Kate Chastain throughout his time on the season. He was unwilling to adjust his dishes and to cook what the charter guests had requested during Below Deck season 3. Chef Leon was eventually fired for starting a fire in the galley due to his uncleanliness. The fire was preventable, but he was very stubborn and didn’t take any advice from his fellow crew members.

Ben Willoughby

Below deck seasons 10 & 11.

Ben Willoughby’s ego was out of control in Below Deck season 11. He went into the charter season with one year under his bet, having appeared on Below Deck season 10 the year prior. Heading into the new season, Ben wanted to be hired by Captain Kerry Titheradge as the St. David’s Bosun . He told Us Weekly it felt like he was “ taking a step down ” by joining as a deckhand. Ben was upset Jared Woodin got the job instead of him and was critical of his performance as bosun during the start of the charter season.

However, Jared was fired, Ben took over his role, and Ben was overjoyed. His ego was displayed again throughout the season in his boatmance with Sunny Marquis. Ben strung her along and was ambiguous about the state of their relationship. During one charter, he posted on Instagram that he wasn’t over his ex, Camille Lamb, while he was still hooking up with Sunny. Ben thought that he could have his cake and eat it too. He was rather power-hungry during Below Deck season 11.

Tom Checketts

Below deck mediterranean season 5.

Chef Tom Checketts joined Below Deck Med season 5 late as the replacement for Chef Hindrigo “Kiko” Lorran. He wasn’t expecting to join the season but stepped in as requested by his then-girlfriend and fellow crew member Malia White. Chef Tom was a little unprepared heading into the season, but he did a great job as a chef. He bragged about working with Gordon Ramsay to his crew members and said his mother had cooked for Queen Elizabeth. Tom was one of the most unhinged chefs from the Below Deck franchise .

Eddie Lucas

Below deck seasons 1-3, 8-9.

Eddie Lucas was full of himself during his multiple seasons of Below Deck . He went as far as to cheat on his then-girlfriend during Below Deck season 3 with stewardess Rocky Dakota. Eddie thought he had everything under control and hid their boatmance from the crew. He thought he was cool enough to have two girlfriends but forgot that his then-girlfriend would see all the footage of his affair on TV. On Below Deck season 9, he also didn’t do anything when Rayna Lindsey told him that Heather Chase said a racial slur in front of her.

Below Deck Sailing Yacht Seasons 2-5

Gary King is a controversial crew member on Below Deck Sailing Yacht . He’s been involved in many boatmances over his tenure on the series. His ability to swoon over women has likely boosted his ego. However, the fans think Gary is very problematic because of his behavior on the show. He’s had serious allegations made about him by the Below Deck Sailing Yacht season 4 makeup artist Samantha Suarez. Per Rolling Stone , she alleged Gary grabbed and restrained her one night when he was drunk. Samantha reported this to Below Deck production, and no further action was taken.

Ryan McKeown

Below deck down under season 1.

Chef Ryan McKeown thought he was better than everyone on Below Deck Down Under season 2. Throughout the season, he was disrespectful to those around him. Chef Ryan took things a little too far when he was rude to his captain and didn’t greet guests when they boarded the superyacht. He had a negative attitude that seeped into his performance as a chef. Captain Jason Chambers ended up firing him, which was the best decision for the rest of the crew.

There have been many Below Deck stars with huge egos across the franchise. It can be exciting for the yachties when they make it onto the show. However, it can get to their heads, leading them to act outrageous and out of character.

Below Deck Mediterranean season 9 premieres Monday, June 3 at 9 p.m. EDT on Bravo.

Sources: Us Weekly , Rolling Stone

Below Deck is a popular reality TV franchise that focuses on a group of crew members as they work on luxurious yachts and cater to their client's needs.

He showed exceptional skills and became the lead deckhand within the first five episodes. In 2024, Ben joined Below Deck season 11 . He earned another promotion and assumed the role of bosun. Besides earning the promotion, Ben was also successful at sparking a boatmance . He impressed Canadian Deckhand Marie "Sunny" Marquis , which became a controversial subject on Captain Kerry Titheradge's boat.

Since Ben is one of the most notable names on the show, fans have wondered if he plans to be a regular on the franchise like some of the former cast members, such as Kate Chastain. Thankfully, Ben has shared his two cents on the subject and revealed what is in the future for him. Recently, he answered a fan who asked, "will you return next season?" The bosun wrote, " don't count on it, " telling viewers not to get their hopes up about seeing him return in Below Deck season 12.

Reality TV is more popular than ever. With so many to choose from, here are some of the best reality TV shows to stream or watch right now.

Is Ben Willoughby Dragging Down Below Deck Crew?

Ben had a public fight with his below deck co-star, barbie pascual.

Ben has been blunt about his feelings for fellow cast members and whether he wants to work with them again. Previously, the bosun posted an Instagram Story in which he refused to work with Captain Kerry. He wrote, "I will never work for Captain Kerry in the future." In May 2024, he found himself in a heated feud with Barbie Pascual on social media, sparked by a photo he posted without her consent. The stew told him to stop embarrassing himself. However, Ben escalated the fight by accusing Barbie of "blowing smoke up people's a**."

It seems like Ben doesn't want to return to Below Deck . However, that doesn't mean he'll quit the franchise. The Below Deck bosun doesn't want to work with Captain Kerry but can still be part of Captain Sandra "Sandy" Yawn's team.

Captain Sandy is far more peaceful and known for her soft leadership. She may be someone Ben could work with in the future. The bosun could also join the Below Deck Sailing Yacht . Captain Glenn Shephard is compassionate and treats his crew like his kids . Ben may enjoy working with him because of his kind nature.

Unfortunately, Ben will have to fix his behavioral problems if he ever wants to stand out again. The new bosun has ruined his reputation by showing problematic behavior throughout season 11.

He has become a villain, someone many viewers don't want to see on the show again. Ben must alter his attitude if he wants to continue his reality TV journey. The bosun must show behavioral improvement and an ability to co-exist with his team. Another controversial bosun, João Franco, was also unlikeable in the Below Deck spin-off. However, he fixed his image by showing genuine change and quitting alcohol.

Below Deck airs Mondays at 9 p.m. EDT on Bravo, then streams the following day on Peacock.
