At the beginning of Below Deck Down Under season 2 Chief Stewardess Aesha Scott talked about how her and long-term boyfriend Scott “Scotty” Dobson were planning to buy a new home together. Although most yachties find it hard to maintain a relationship when working in remote locations away from home for many months of the year, Aesha and Scott are still going strong after three years together. The couple have lived in an old reconverted ambulance the past three years traveling America. So who’s Aesha’s boyfriend Scott Dobson exactly?
Scott surprised Aesha by visiting her on a crew day off while she was working charters in Cairns, Australia, in 2022 and shown on episode 11 of BDDU season 2.

Scotty Dobbo, as he’s nicknamed, is also into mountain climbing, surfing, snowmobiling, snowboarding, dirt biking, and any other extreme sport he comes across.

We decided to use the circumstances of cancelled work to our advantage and made lemonade out of lemons, and what an unforgettable adventure it turned out to be!!!” Aesha said.
The two plan to get a home back in Tauranga, New Zealand, once they’ve saved up enough money.
“Scott and I have been together for over two years now, and we’re planning to buy a house in New Zealand,” she said. “Because living in the converted ambulance has been lovely, but we would really like to poop in real toilets instead of in buckets. The next step in our relationship is flushing.”
