Below Deck Sailing Season 1 Headshot Parker Mccown

Parker McCown


Born and raised in Maryland, Parker has been immersed in sailing culture ever since he was a kid, where he learned to sail at summer camp. For two years, he was a deckhand on an historic Skipjack built in 1901 where he mastered his detailing skills working on the repair and maintenance for a fleet of historic boats.  Although new to the world of luxury yachting, Parker is a confident and capable sailor who has spent plenty of time on smaller boats. He is a hard worker who is not afraid to ask questions and is sponge when it comes to learning new tasks. A self-proclaimed “James Bond of the sailing world,” this ladies’ man brings his high energy and magnetic charisma to Parsifal.
