Below Deck S11: Meet Dylan De Villiers, New Deckhand Who Replaces Jared

Below Deck S11: Meet Dylan De Villiers, New Deckhand Who Replaces Jared

It took longer than fans anticipated, but incompetent Bosun Jared Woodin finally got fired by Captain Kerry Titheradge on Below Deck season 11‘s episode 7. After plenty of screwups worthy of him walking the plank, Captain Kerry finally reached the end of his rope. The wayward bosun got overly drunk and woke him up repeatedly after a crew night out. In a pinch, Captain Kerry managed to find a replacement deck crew member to join superyacht St. David. South African yachtie Dylan De Villiers was able to join the Below Deck season 11 crew on the fourth charter.

Show Star News was able to confirm Dylan joined the crew while Primary Charter Guest Lesley Guadiosi, her husband James, and their friends enjoyed the fourth charter in picturesque Grenada. One of Lesley’s friends let the cat out of the bag. He posted a photo back in 2023, showing the group of charter guests along with the crew, which included Dylan.

Not only that, much of the crew followed Dylan on Instagram back while filming Below Deck season 11 back in March 2023. Dylan also followed much of the crew back.

Originally from Langebaan, South Africa, he’s from the same country as Second Stewardess Xandi Olivier. In the last several years, Dylan, age 25, has worked on superyachts throughout the Mediterranean. He’s traveled to Cannes, France, Monte-Carlo, Monaco, Ventimiglia, Italy, Portofino, Corsica, Hamburg, Germany, and many other places in Europe. He previously worked as a deckhand on superyacht Insomnia, an 86-foot luxury boat.

“I just feel like i want to look back in time, here is a picture of myself in 2012-2013 as you can see i had a C-cup and the second photo is me in January this year, the third picture is five months ago before I started gym and crossfit and the last picture is my current body condition,” Dylan shared on his Instagram back in 2018. He’s now serious into bodybuilding and working out. Many of photos are of him shirtless, showing off his physique. Dylan’s TikTok shows off his different workout exercises and his journey to being as fit as he can be.

Lead Deckhand Ben Willoughby and deckhand Kyle Stillie better watch out, they’ve got some serious competition with pursuing the ladies aboard St. David. However, it looks like deckhand Sunny Marquis and stewardess Barbie Pascual are taken by Ben and Kyle respectively. That said, with stewardess Cat Baugh‘s sudden departure, her replacement Paris Field might be available for a boatmance with the South African.

Outside of work, Dylan is also very close with his mom and sister, Meg.

While not working for the rich and famous on boats, Dylan likes to wear designer clothes and hit the clubs. He’s got a big South African bru crew. Dylan also recently got a snake tattoo sleeve. That adds to his arrow and rose tattoos he already had. He also likes to acquire designer sunglasses, like Prada, but his favorite pair are his Pit Viper sunglasses. Besides working as a yachtie, he also has an OnlyFans account called “@lilldill” where he posts risqué content.

Dylan is also good friends with Below Deck Med season 8 star Max Salvador, the slightly lazy deckhand. They hiked and camped in the French Alps together back in November 2023.
