Throughout Season 11 of Below Deck, viewers witnessed the St. David crew navigate through unexpected yachtie departures, “rude” charter guests, and dangerous weather conditions. Despite those issues, Captain Kerry Titheradge and his poised team were able to stay afloat and deliver an outstanding yachting experience.

In fact, on the Season 11 finale of the series, which aired on May 27, the final charter guests of the season enjoyed their vacation in Grenada so much that they found a way to extend their gratitude.

After saying their final goodbyes to the primary charter guest, Michele, who applauded the team’s “amazing” service, handed a jumbo envelope to Kerry, who replied, “Thank you.”

Moments later, the staff regrouped in the main salon for their last tip meeting, where Kerry shared details on the total of combined tips for the season, which nearly topped $210,000.

“So final tip of the season [was] $20,000 – $1,538 each,” Kerry told the crew, adding, “What did we get all season $208,750.”

Of course, the earnings garnered a happy reaction from the deckhands and stews, with Dylan Pierre De Villiers sharing in a confessional interview, “Woo! I just can’t stop thinking about all the protein I can buy…”

The large tip amount wasn’t the only thing that made the St. David crew smile. Kerry expressed some positive remarks about his employee’s work ethic. “You exceeded my expectations, the guests’ expectations, you did amazing,” he said. 

The team reviews didn’t stop in there. At the end of the episode, Kerry met with Fraser Olender and Ben Willoughby to praise them on their “growth” in their roles as chief stew and bosun. 

As for Kerry’s final thoughts on his first season onboard St. David? He concluded: “I came here knowing I had big shoes to fill. We had some epic highs, and there were some lows that I’d rather just forget about. But that’s yachting, and I’m grateful for all of it. Boy, that was one hell of an adventure.”
