Chase From Below Deck Sailing Yacht: All Fans Need To Know

Below Deck Sailing Yacht season 4 deckhand Chase Lemacks is a hardworking southern gentleman who likes to think of himself as dependable. The Charleston, South Carolina, native despite his eagerness to do a good job doesn’t start off on the best foot with his boss, First Officer Gary King. However, the rest of the crew sailing on Parsifal III in Sardinia, Italy, enjoy Chase’s infectious positive attitude and hard work ethic. Here’s everything fans need to know about Chase from Below Deck Sailing Yacht.

As a true Southerner, Chase puts family, friends and God first. He’s very close with his best friend and older brother Dalton, as well as his mom, dad and grandma. He’s also built up a strong bond to his family’s pet Dachshund or wiener dog Charlie. He posts a lot of videos and pics hanging out with Charlie. After finishing high school, Chase studied at Charleston Southern University for an undisclosed degree. Although Chase’s age isn’t available online, he’s in his early twenties based on his timeline of when he went to college.

After graduating from college, Chase sold all of his possessions in 2019 and moved to Fort Lauderdale, Florida to train to become a yachtie. Before working on BDSY, he worked as a deckhand on 80 meter motor yacht Excellence.

From the show, Chase clearly prioritizes his physical fitness. He not only hits the gym regularly, but is also big into running races. Some fans have noted Chase’s multiple tattoos all over his one arm, shoulders and chest. Some of his tattoos include a sail ship, exotic flowers, a pineapple, bald eagle, and inspirational writing.

Before heading to university, devout Christian Chase did volunteer missionary work in the Dominican Republic.

A few years ago, Chase went on an epic travel trip throughout Europe, Africa and Asia. He toured London, England, Paris, France, Switzerland, Morocco, Barcelona, Spain, Croatia, Ireland, Thailand, Bali, Indonesia, and Germany. The globetrotter with wanderlust has also been all over the Caribbean working as a yachtie. After filming BDSY season 4, Chase became good friends with other first-time cast members: Chef Ileisha Dell, Alex Propson, and Mads Herrera. The four of them rented an RV and did an epic road trip in California together. The jury’s still out if Alex or Chase ended up winning over their mutual crush, Mads.

Chase also appears to be an adrenaline junkie. Chase’s Instagram shows he likes to wrestle crocodiles, drive sports cars and his Jeep, skydive, snowmobile, and solo backpack traveling.

The deckhand says he’s in yachting to make lots of money in the hopes of retiring by age 30. Perhaps he should talk to the rich charter guests chartering the sailing yacht for financial advice, like BDSY guest and loud-mouth John Cerasani. Fans wanting to chip in to his retirement fund can buy a shoutout video from Chase’s cameo profile.

Some Below Deck fans have also noted how similar Chase looks to fellow Southerner and Below Deck Adventure star Kyle Dickard. However, where Kyle got fired for ridiculously bad behavior and arrested after the show, Chase helps give Southerners a good name again.
