0007 Rhylee

Rhylee Gerber


Below Deck fans were first introduced to this no-nonsense deckhand last season, as Rhylee began her initial voyage into the white glove world of yachting. Hailing from The Last Frontier, she is no stranger to hard work and spent her career moving up the ranks of charter fishing vessels in her home state of Alaska, becoming a captain in 2015. As a fearless co-captain and first mate of a 36 foot aluminum catamaran, she has navigated rough waters and gale force winds at freezing temperatures. After finishing the season with the My Seanna crew, Rhylee went back to work in Alaska for the summer fishing season. She then had a brief stint in Hawaii working on a dolphin and turtle boat, and traveled to Key West for a few fishing charter trips. Eventually landing back in Florida to be near her mother and stepfather, who was recently diagnosed with stage 4 bone cancer, she began work alongside longtime friend and fellow captain in more creative endeavors. Rhylee is assisting in the fauxteak process of her friend’s creative artistic designs, painting boat transoms, toerails and pods on beautiful sport-fishing yachts. Whether on the water or not, it’s clear her motivation to “live the life of Rhylee” is what drives her to follow her passions towards travel and adventure wherever it may lead.
