Chief Stewardess Jenna MacGillivray

Originally from Canada, Jenna wasn’t planning a career in yachting, but once she was bitten by the travel bug, she couldn’t turn away from the lifestyle it provided. From her tablescapes to the way she manages her crew, nothing is left unfinished when she is in charge. This girl boss does have a sarcastic sense of humor and is always ready to party.

Second Stewardess Madison Stalker

Born and raised in the suburbs of Detroit, Madison succumbed to the wanderlust lifestyle and bought a one-way ticket to Fort Lauderdale where she jumped headfirst into the yachting industry.

Deckhand Ciara Duggan

Having spent most of her childhood traveling on her family’s 45-foot sailing catamaran, yachting seemed like a natural career choice for Ciara. She got her first taste of yachtie life at 17 working as the sole stew and crew cook on a 27-meter sailboat in Spain. This charter season, Ciara steps in as a deckhand and although she has been dating her boyfriend Paget for over four years, they have never worked in the same department.

Below Deck Sailing Yacht arrives as the newest iteration of the popular Bravo franchise. The series, premiering Monday, February 3, takes place on a luxury sailing yacht with a new crew and equally demanding charter guests looking to follow the wind as they cruise along the crystal-clear blue waters of Corfu, Greece.

Chef Adam Glick from Below Deck Mediterranean returns to the galley aboard the180-foot-long sailing yacht Parsifal III. Additional crew members include Captain Glenn Shephard, yachtie couple Paget Berry and Ciara Duggan, Jenna MacGillivray, Byron Hissey, Madison Stalker, Georgia Grobler and Parker McCown.

When the sails are up, the crew’s already difficult job gets tougher as they must contend with maneuvering the sails in high winds and adapting to the steep tilt of the boat, all while troubleshooting the needs of the guests and any issues that may arise.

Constantly at the whim of the wind, it’s a sailing lover’s paradise and getting there is part of the fun as they visit the colossal cliffs, explore the breathtaking sites and the beaches in the sun-drenched Ionian Sea. The physicality of working on a sailing yacht brings new challenges to these young, attractive and adventurous yachties who are ready to work hard and play harder.

Below deck, tensions between the crew are amplified by the conditions of working aboard a sailing yacht which has a sleeker design than their motor yacht counterparts, with a smaller galley, almost non-existent stew stations and cramped living quarters. And while two yachties start a roller coaster romance so intense that it might sink the yacht, resident couple Paget and Ciara’s existing relationship gets pushed to new boundaries.
