Season 5 of Below Deck Mediterranean will take place aboard the largest boat in the series' history — and, quite possibly, also its most glam. From her dock in Mallorca, Spain, captain Sandy Yawn invited BravoTV.com to tour the stunning yacht, calling The Wellington "by far, the biggest vessel I've ever run." Ready to peek inside?
Starting in the main salon, the captain shows off the "nice and spacious" room with plush couches, gilded lamps, and a giant flat-screen TV. ("This is where I think I'd do my pre-charter meeting — and perhaps my tip meeting," Sandy muses.) Next, there's a stop in the wood-paneled cigar room, which has tufted leather lounge furniture and a cabinet brimming with top-shelf whiskeys and scotches. "Obviously, they spared no expense when it comes to this," Sandy says. "This owner really loves his cigars and his whiskey."
Past the sumptuous indoor dining room, there's the master cabin. The 1920s-theme suite has been refurbished with mahogany and inlaid leather, and its Pratesi sheets go for about 2,000 Euros a pop. "The cool thing about this [suite]," Sandy adds, "it's got an actual closet. It's a proper dressing room."
Formerly an observation lounge, the V.I.P. suite has a glass ceiling. "It's almost like driving under the stars," Sandy says, looking up at the ceiling dreamily as she lies on the bed.
Next, Sandy dips into the crew quarters, where third stewardess Jessica More is at work ironing. "This is like entering the Bermuda Triangle," the captain jokes. "Some things that come in, never make it back out." While she walks through the rather cramped crew mess, Sandy jokes: "If anyone wants to get romantic, they have to get really creative to get romantic in these small little cabins." (Why do we have a feeling the crew will still find a way?)
After a walk through her "amazing" bridge and wing station, Sandy meets up with her new "favorite bosun," who might look familiar: It's Below Deck Med veteran Malia White! Malia leads the next segment of the tour, showing the lazarette that holds toys ranging from jet skis to a jellyfish pool, slide, and trampoline.
On the bridge deck, Malia shows off the cushioned area where the deckhands have wrestling matches, and then points out the waterfall-equipped jacuzzi on the sundeck. Sandy, who grew up in the meat industry, pauses to say: "This is a pretty badass grill."
As Sandy says, "The bigger the boat ... I don't know!" We'll all have to watch Season 5 to find out. In the meantime, watch the video above to get the complete Wellington tour.
