Below Deck is back for season 9 — this time setting sail on the crystal clear waters of St. Kitts. An unexpected delay leaves Captain Lee on land, putting superyacht My Seanna in the hands of a new captain — Captain Sean Meagher. Eddie Lucas returns as first officer, along with Rachel Hargrove who’s ready to redeem herself after an unforgettable last charter season.
The new yachties include chief stewardess Heather Chase, stews Jessica Albert and Fraser Olender and deckhands Jake Foulger, Rayna Lindsay and Wes O’Dell. The whole crew will struggle with Captain Sean’s “hands-on” approach, patiently awaiting Captain Lee’s return.
Eddie is high off of his promotion, but soon comes to terms with having to help out on deck if his team is going to succeed. Chief stew Heather is in a similar situation — one of her stews is lagging behind, pushing her to hustle to pick up the slack and keep the guests unaware of what’s happening behind-the-scenes. Meanwhile, Eddie and Rachel will have to put their differences to rest if their charters are going to be smooth sailing. Expect blossoming romances, new friendships and a whole lot of tension as My Seanna sails through the Caribbean in season 9.
