Below Deck season 11 is currently filming in the Caribbean and started the charter season in early February 2023. Multiple charter guests are sharing posts of their time aboard superyacht St. David. They’re also following some of the Below Deck season 11 crew members on Instagram.
Below Deck Adventure‘s Captain Kerry Titheradge was also spotted in the West Indies, sparking rumors he replaced Captain Lee Rosbach on Bravo’s flagship yachting show. Well, celebrity news publication US Weekly confirmed Captain Kerry takes over for Captain Lee, who’s had ailing health issues in latter seasons (most recently missing most of season 10 due to lasting back pain from spinal surgery). Captain Lee wanted to return for another season, but Below Deck production and Bravo wanted to revamp the franchise with a new captain, retiring the Stud of the Sea.
I will if they invite me back. https://t.co/T2lpBoNxgg

The new Below Deck season 11 crew are again setting sail on the same motor yacht worked on in Below Deck season 10. St. David is an upgrade from My Seanna, the yacht used in some previous seasons of Below Deck. A Below Deck season 11 charter guest confirmed the new season is sailing on St. David when she posted a video of her on the sundeck with the superyacht’s trademark “D” logo on towels.
Below Deck Season 11 Cast: Returning Cast Members
TV Deets first reported Captain Kerry would replace Captain Lee from sources, and also reported Chief Steward Fraser Olender will also return for the latest Below Deck season currently in production. Captain Kerry recently followed both Fraser and Below Deck season 10 Lead Deckhand Ben Willoughby. Ben is also either following/followed by the apparent new chef and crew members. Many charter guests posting on Instagram about their yacht charter trips in the West Indies are also followed by him.
Below Deck production picking Ben to return makes sense since he got involved in two boatmances with stews Camille Lamb and Leigh-Ann Smith on season 10. Fans will be curious to see if the Australian can outcompete Below Deck Sailing Yacht‘s Gary King for female attention. Perhaps Ben will get promoted to bosun this season.
Below Deck Season 11’s New Crew
Private/Yacht Chef Anthony Iracane recently followed much of the crew and follows/is followed by Below Deck season 11 charter guests, too. Iracane trained in a French culinary school and owned an upscale restaurant in France for five years. He lives in South Florida and started a food truck business called SnackyBae serving French street food. Below Deck season 11 definitely needed a replacement five-star cook after Chef Rachel Hargrove quit working with Bravo. She starred in seasons 8, 9, and 10. Chef Rachel now works on another superyacht in the Caribbean.
Yachtie Dylan De Villiers most likely joins Ben on the Below Deck season 11’s deck crew. South African Dylan’s Instagram follows/followed many of the Below Deck season 11 crew and charter guests.
Meanwhile, Fraser’s interior team likely includes stews Marie Marq and Xandie Olivier based on their recent followers and follows on Instagram, too. Xandi also recently filmed a Club Tiki Piña Colada commercial Below Deck Adventure yachties. Show Star News previously figured out some of the Below Deck season 10 and Below Deck Adventure crews using the same method of sleuthing.
A lot of the Below Deck season 11 crew also follow Australian model and influencer Paris Field. Diehard Below Deck fans will know that name rings a bell. Paris dated Below Deck season 9‘s Lead Deckhand Jake Foulger, who claimed they were pretending to be engaged so the Australian bombshell could emmigrate to the UK. However, some fans think he made up the story and was actually cheating on Paris. Since that season, Paris became a yachtie stewardess (apparently influencing wasn’t paying the bills). So it’s very likely the blonde beauty is also part of the Below Deck season 11 interior team.
Below Deck Season 11’s Filming Location, Release Date & Charter Guests
US Weekly and other publications confirmed Below Deck season 11 is filming along the coast of Grenada. The country of Grenada has a population of 124,000 and is a tropical oasis. The islands surrounding it are called the Grenadines, so Below Deck fans can expect an adventurous Captain Kerry to take the charter guests to some of these smaller, more private islands.
Proud mom of five and Frigata Health Strategies business owner Tiphanie Wawrzyniak Forst also enjoyed being a guest on the boat on a separate charter.
Show Star News will update this article with more charter guests.
Below Deck season 11 is just wrapping up filming. So the first episode won’t air until fall 2023, when the original franchise’s season annually airs on Bravo. Although Below Deck Sailing Yacht season 4 ended, Below Deck Down Under season 2 starts airing on July 17 at 8 PM EST. The first part of the BDSY season 4 reunion also airs on Bravo right after.
Meanwhile, Below Deck fans can check out the latest on the cast and charter guests filming Below Deck Sailing Yacht season 5 in Ibiza, Spain.
