Now ‘Below Deck’ Fans Can Charter My Seanna
If watching Below Deck made yachting look like a dream come true, now fans can actually charter the same yacht featured on season six.
According to Yacht Charter Fleet, My Seanna is ready for charter–and at a discount. “For the first three yacht charters in the Bahamas this summer, the 56m/185ft motor yacht ‘My Seanna’ is offering an incredible 35% price reduction,” the yachting media resource reports.
Captain Lee Rosbach was happy to announce the yacht was ready for hire too. Rosbach was at the helm of My Seanna so he knows the vessel well. “Can’t go wrong there, I love that boat,” he tweeted.
Viewers have a pretty good idea of what the guest rooms and living areas look like. They also know what crew quarters are like. Plus, Rosbach recently shared how spacious the captain’s quarters are too.
My Seanna is equipped to comfortably accommodate 12 guests among six guest cabins. “The principal charterer will benefit from a well-appointed owner’s suite complete with a decadently frescoed en suite and wide windows that allow natural light to flood in,” Yacht Charter Fleet wrote.
Other features include 22-carat gold brushed surfaces and the main salon finished in cream and bronze. Dining can occur starboard or poolside. Cocktails can be taken in the skylounge at the glossy wood bar. Plus guests can enjoy alfresco dining on the aft deck (just don’t get super drunk and pass out on the aft deck).
This is what it could cost
Guests can charter this fabulous yacht at a discount. But what is the actual price? For summer, the full price for one week is about $320,500. With your 35% discount and you’ll still pay more than $200,000.
The price includes the cost to hire the yacht itself. Plus “all equipment in working order in addition to the cost of food and wages for the crew during the entirety of the charter.” Price may vary based on the season and special events. For instance, chartering a yacht around Cannes Film Festival or America’s Cup could result in a higher fee.
So how does privately chartering a yacht compared to going on Below Deck? Like the crew, guests agree to be filmed on the show.
Your discount is far larger if you agree to be on the show
Agreeing to have your luxury vacation filmed and possibly used as fodder has to have some kind of reward. Below Deck guests pay considerably less to party on the yacht than those who go totally private. Of course, a private charter means you likely won’t have Rosbach as your captain or chief stew Kate Chastain taking your drink order.
According to The Forward Cabin, Below Deck guests pay about $11,00 apiece to be on the show. That means a party of five would receive the same yacht, sophisticated dining, toys and more for only $55,000.
According to an email to Forward Cabin, the price also included “roundtrip airfare to Croatia, two nights at a 5-star hotel, alcohol, water toys, transportation, crew tip and three days on the 154ft yacht.”
