5 Reasons to Watch the Below Deck Mediterranean Premiere Now!

This season is sure to ruffle a few sails. 

By John Brandi
This Season on Below Deck Mediterranean...

Prepare to flip a ship when Below Deck Mediterranean returns for Season 2 on May 2 at 9/8c. The Sirocco mega-yacht is setting sail out of Croatia with both familiar faces and some new yachties alike. But if you can't wait until then, you can watch the full season premiere now! Here are the 5 reasons you need to check it out.

How to Watch

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

1. There's a New Captain

And she's way more hands on than some would like...Captain Sandy Yawn does not play! She has a professional reputation to defend, and she isn't afraid to pitch in, much to the chagrin of Chief Steward Hannah Ferrier. Hannah returns this season, but recalls that when she's worked with female captains in the past, it wasn't always smooth sailing. Tensions rise in the premiere between the two when Captain Sandy tries to teach on the job. 

2. Learn the Secrets of Flipping a Yacht in 24 Hours

This season, viewers will really see what it's like to get the yacht in tip-top shape before guests board. It takes almost a full day to swab the deck, organize the cupboards and stock the bar before the yacht can leave port. There's a lot more than meets the eye when it comes to the crew meeting the demands on the high seas. Right down to if there's butter in a dish!  

3. Bugsy!

There's a second stew in town and her name's Bugsy! No, that's not her real name, rather a nickname given to her by her parents back in South Africa. The name alone will provide a season worth of delight. 

4. Trouble on the High Seas

Not everything goes according to plan. That's what Captain Sandy learns when working with such a "green" crew. Will they figure out issues with the anchor that could derail the first charter?  

5. If Nothing Else, There's a Really Hot Crew

Exhibit A: Bobby Giancola

See all of the trials and tribulations of charter life when Below Deck Mediterranean Season 2 pulls into port on Bravo May 2 at 9/8c.
