Reality TV show will profile yacht crew

A new reality series set to debut July 1 on Bravo is documenting crew life aboard a 164-foot charter yacht called Honor.

Harkening to “Downton Abbey,” a report at says “upstairs and downstairs worlds collide when this young and single crew, known as yachties ... work together on board the luxurious, privately owned yacht while tending to the ever-changing needs of their wealthy, demanding charter guests.”

The report features an interview with the 29-year-old chief stewardess, Adrienne Gang, who said she was glad viewers would get some insight into the yacht lifestyle and also realize how much work it is to be part of the yacht crew.

“It gives a very unique perspective to this secretive lifestyle that many people never knew existed,” Gang told the Examiner. “I am excited for people to see what it is and how much fun it can be, but also how hard the work is and sometimes that doesn’t come across when I tell people I work on a yacht. I want people to walk away with a true understanding of what yachting is, and that is to work hard first, play hard second.”

“Below Deck” premieres at 10 p.m. ET/PT Monday on Bravo.
