Captain Glenn Shephard Says He Walked a "Fine Line" During "Long Island Bros" Charter

The Below Deck Sailing Yacht boss explains why he didn't intervene more with these guests.

This season of Below Deck Sailing Yacht has definitely been filled with memorable charter guest moments, but the one group of guys we will certainly never forget is the so-called "Long Island bros."

In case you need a refresher on just how crazy that charter was, when the guests weren't drinking and eating a ton or opening bottle after bottle of champagne with a saber, they wreaked plenty of other havoc on the Parsifal III crew. Need we remind you of the charter guest who picked up Madison Stalker and lifted her up in the air as if he were working out with a weight, or the night they invited some ladies and a DJ back to the boat, which ended with vomit on the deck?

Considering how wild these charter guests got, Andy Cohen asked Captain Glenn Shephard if he regrets not intervening more when they were onboard during the May 4 episode of Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen: @ Home (clip above). "That's a tough one. Charter guests pay a lot to be on the boat. We walk a fine line. During that rowdy party, they did come and get me and made an appearance and things calmed down," Captain Glenn explained. "But it is a fine line because paying people are paying a lot to be on the boat to enjoy themselves."

After the incident with the charter guest, Madison explained why she didn't bring it to her superiors' attention. "Having a charter guest manhandle you puts you in an awkward position. If you make note of this to, let's say, Jenna [MacGillivray], the captain, you're putting people's tips in jeopardy, you might piss off guests," she explained on Below Deck Sailing Yacht. "So I'd rather just keep my mouth shut."

She opened up more about the moment on WWHL on March 9. "Yachting's a very weird industry. I've been a deckhand before, I've been a stewardess, but you kind of come into these realities where you almost feel like you have to suck things up because you're in the industry, and you're like, 'All right, some dude's gonna manhandle you this way,'" she said. "That's why I was like, 'Everything's fine, everything's fine.' I didn't want to make a big deal about it."

Madison also said the charter guests were "great guys," but noted that being picked up "was very aggressive."

Keep up with the Parsifal III crew on Below Deck Sailing Yacht Mondays at 9/8c. See what's coming up for Madison, below.
