The first season of Below Deck Sailing Yacht has taught us a lot about life aboard the Parsifal III. The show's producers had a firsthand look at the yachtie and charter guest shenanigans — and the team revealed all in an enhanced version of Season 1, Episode 13 that aired on May 4.

So what kind of secrets did the producers and crew shared exclusively from the episode with Bravo Insider?

1. Honorary Yachties

Since most of production also worked on Below Deck and Below Deck Med, they consider themselves "honorary yachties." They've spent so much time aboard these boats, it's only fair.

To really become part of the experience, producers had a glossary to learn as much as they could about the sailing process and vocabulary before filming began.

The creator of Below Deck is actually an avid sailor, too!

3. Hot Tub Findings

So, have any... odds things been found in the hot tub?

"People's dignity," say producers. Not the best find, but somewhat better than what we were expecting.

In general, the most common items charter guests leave behind on the yacht are jewelry, sunglasses, cell phones, and chargers.

4. Different Territory

"The tilting and tacking" is the biggest different between filming on a sailing yacht versus a motor yacht. "Also, the sailboat is much smaller, so everyone is crammed together and overhears everything," say producers.

According to the film crew, "Using the tender to run personal errands is 'the captain's call.'"

5. Ready for Any Emergency

There were a couple of scary moments in this episode. Producers confirm bees were indeed attacking on the show, emphasizing, "So many bees."

But don't worry, no one got stung. Medics were close by if needed, especially when Adam Glick was injured. When Adam hit his nose, producers say it seemed "very bad — he really smashed his face into that log."
