We Have a Major Update on Malia White’s Yachting Career

The Below Deck Mediterranean alum made an exciting announcement and was immediately congratulated by several of her fellow Bravolebrities.

Malia White’s yachting career is going swimmingly — so much so that she recently took it to a whole new level by receiving a major certification.

How to Watch

Watch Below Deck Mediterranean on Mondays at 9/8c and next day on Peacock. Catch up on the Bravo app

The Below Deck Mediterranean alum took to Instagram on Monday, January 30, to reveal as much, sharing a photo of herself with a test labeled “PASS” in one hand and a celebratory Guinness in the other. “It’s official: your latest Officer of the Watch!” Malia captioned the post. “Thank you to all those who’ve supported me and helped get me here today… It’s been a stressful studying period but it paid off today!”

Several members of the Below Deck family congratulated Malia, including her former boss Captain Sandy Yawn and Below Deck Sailing Yacht’s Captain Glenn Shephard

Malia’s fellow crew members shared sweet messages as well. “Yewwwwwwwwwwww, congrats Malia!” Mzi “Zee” Dempers wrote, while Katie Flood commented, “So proud of my partner in crime.” 

Eddie Lucas, Natasha Webb, Dave White, Storm Smith, and Elena Dubaich were also among those to congratulate her. 

Malia isn’t the only Below Deck Med alum to go on to receive the yachting certification, though. In 2021, João Franco — who landed his first captain gig at the end of Season 4 — announced that he had passed the exam, writing, “Another milestone. Another accomplishment. Finally!!! With so many obstacles, it’s taken so long to get this ticket but I’m so effing glad and grateful for the people who believed in me and helped me through this stage of my life.” 

“Upwards and onwards,” João added after thanking the many people who helped him achieve the feat. “If you believe you can or believe you can’t, you’re right.”

Watch Below Deck Mediterranean on Peacock and the Bravo app.
