This season on Below Deck, Captain Lee has his hands full with a greener-than-usual crew, but fortunately he can rely on trusted veterans Kate and Nico to help him manage the rough seas ahead. For Kate, the frustrating task of getting two new stews quickly up to speed forces her to deal with her stress in interesting ways, including engaging in some off-boat escapades with a handsome sailor down the dock. Nico’s first challenge of being senior deckhand is balancing his new leadership role onboard with the painful and difficult circumstances his family is facing back home. When he realizes he has a history with new stew Brianna, things get even more complicated. Also vying for Brianna’s affection are Chef Matt and deckhand Chris, who has bigger things to worry about than pursuing an onboard romance. First-time deckhand Bruno and single mom-turned-stew Jen are living their dreams by working on a yacht, but the heavy workload and the scrutiny from their bosses may turn it into a nightmare. After a scary mishap, Captain Lee is forced to “reconfigure” the deck crew. Nobody is happy with decision, except Baker, who may have ulterior motives for welcoming the sudden change. It’s all hands on deck this charter season as the crew struggles to work as a team, while meeting the needs of the always demanding, frequently eccentric charter guests.
