Tour the Below Deck Mediterranean Season 8 Yacht, Mustique (VIDEO)
Tumi Mhlongo and Luka Brunton share an exclusive look around the luxurious yacht.
Below Deck Mediterranean Season 8 premiered on September 25. Now that the new season has set sail, chief stew Tumi Mhlongo and Bosun Luka Brunton are prepared to welcome guests — and Bravo viewers — for a look around the glamorous vessel. In the clip above, the cast members offer a complete tour of the boat's interior and exterior.
Season 8 takes place aboard the 180-foot M/Y Mustique. According to a press release for the show, the new vessel "challenges" Captain Sandy Yawn's deck crew as they "attempt to navigate the busy industrial port with utmost precision." While the crew focuses on precision, the charter guests can focus on fun.
As you can see in the clip above, the superyacht has everything from inflatable slides to a gorgeous dining room with a massive chandelier overhead. "The decor of the boat is beautiful. It's classic," Tumi says. "It kind of reminds me of Harry Potter."
Inside the Below Deck Mediterranean Yacht, Mustique
In addition to a rarely-used main salon filled with silky sofas, a spacious galley, and, of course, the chandelier-laden dining room, the interior holds plush guest cabins. In the tour above, Tumi lets viewers peek inside the primary cabin and the more spacious V.I.P. cabin.
"It's my favorite cabin, personally," Tumi says of the latter, standing in the swanky space. It's outfitted with gleaming wood bookcases, a cozy bed with a tufted headboard, and two windows with decorative crystals. After showing off the "very, very big laundry room," Tumi heads to the bridge deck aft, where there's a spacious dining table and cushy guest seating. Luka takes the tour from there.
The Exterior of the Below Deck Mediterranean Yacht, Mustique
Luka's tour of the exterior starts with the toys. "We've got a waterslide which goes over the side [of the bridge deck aft]," he says before heading up to the sun deck. The upper-level space has a storage area filled with water toys, including standup paddleboards, kayaks, and jet skis. "The guests love these," Luka says of the latter.
After showing the sun deck bar, jacuzzi, and gym, Luka heads into the bridge for a chat with his newly engaged boss. "What I really like about this bridge [is] it actually has a steering wheel," Sandy says. "I like a steering wheel because it feels like you're driving."
Sandy adds that the Mustique has stabilizers that prevent it from swaying. "We don't have drinks flying everywhere," she assures.
Even without the flying beverages, the new season is bound to get hectic. According to the press release, "From outrageous guests to after-hours antics, the boat gets rocked throughout each charter as the crew navigates complicated dynamics and unexpected rifts. In a franchise first, unprecedented staffing changes dominate the season, which tests each department as they struggle to find their sea legs through unforeseen turnover."
