Originally posted on February 6, 2020 @ 1:38 pm

Could there be a better job than a one where you get to travel around the world in style? Let’s be clear here; there are no jobs like that unless you count jobs like that of the ‘Below Deck: Sailing Yacht’ who work in lavish yachts and vessels for high-class clients.

Below Deck Sailing Yacht‘ is the brand new ‘Below Deck’ spin-off, which features a new crew and a sailing yacht instead of a motor one to make things more interesting (not that they were not exciting enough already).

With ‘Below Deck Sailing Yacht’ recent premiere on February 3, 2020, you must be dying for some insight on the show. What better way to understand the show then to have a look at the cast members. Meet the Cast composing of Paget Berry, Ciara Duggan, Jenna MacGillivray, Byron Hissey, Adam Glick, Madison Stalker, Georgia Grobler, and Parker McCown led by Captain Glenn Shephard.

Captain Glenn Shephard Net Worth

A team is only as good as its leader; luckily, the leader of this crew and cast is Captain Glenn Shephard. Captain Shephard is a man of experience of 20 years captaining, 10 of which in the same 180-foot sailing vessel, Parsifal III, which will be featured in season 1 of ‘Below Deck Sailing Yacht.’

Glenn Shephard Net Worth & Salary

Glenn Shephard hails from Montreal, Canada, who started as a deckhand in a 50-foot Yacht in his younger years. So, even as a Captain, he is known to have tended for hundreds of high profile guests personally. Despite having an outstanding career, somehow, his net worth and salary are still under review.

As a Captain of the show, Glenn Shephard probably has the highest net worth and salary among all the cast. Even for yachts ranging from 150 to 180 feet in size, the salary for the Captain can start from $120,000 to $210,000. We know the longtime ‘Below Deck‘ Captain Lee Rosbach earns anywhere from $95,000 to $130,000 salary in a year. Even his net worth remains under review.

Captain Glenn Shephard may be less popular than Rosbach, but he still means a larger vehicle and a much harder to handle, sailboat. With no motor, Shephard is at the mercy of the winds and his skills to keep his guests and crew safe.

So, while his net worth is still under review, his salary may range easily over $300,000. By that calculation, we will not be surprised if it turns out that he has a net worth of over $1 million.

Glenn Shephard Dating Life

Glenn Shephard is not a married man, and he seems to be enjoying his single life to the fullest as per his social media account. He is very active on Instagram, where he lists himself as a photographer, mountain surfer, world traveler, and golfer. Seeing some stunning pictures on his account, we don’t doubt him.

First Mate Paget Berry & His Dating Life

Paget Berry was born and raised in England, but he was just as much raised in a boat, considering that he started sailing since he was only 13 years old. Since then, he has come to work in boats of all sizes, from yachts to catamarans to an oil barge. He has even had experience in lifeboats.

It is surprising to know that Paget Berry did not make the cut for ‘Below Deck: Mediterranean‘ considering how he spent three years on a 27-meter Sailboat in Spain voyaging almost every part of the Mediterranean when he was just 18 years old. It was here he made his way up from a deckhand to the first mate.

He even got to taste the role of a Captain when he was 22 years old in a 45-foot Catamaran. Still, his fondest achievement from this experience may not be the role of the Captain but a chance meeting with current co-star Ciara Duggan. They started dating and have since become partners in crime through different boats they have gone to work together in.

Paget Berry Net Worth

Finally, they venture into a new adventure as the only couple in ‘Below Deck Sailing Yacht’ cast. It is very difficult to find Paget Berry’s net worth primarily because his salary as a first hand can range anywhere from $69,000 to $108,000, which are average salaries as calculated by different sources.

Considering that Paget Berry is second-in-command after Captain Shephard, we can’t say he is undeserving of it. His net worth remains under-review, but it can range anywhere from $200,000 to $300,000 now that he is a reality star as well.

Deckhand Ciara Duggan & Her Dating Life

Ciara Duggan, like her boyfriend, Paget Berry, had her upbringing done on water in her family’s 45-foot Catamaran, where she would meet her boyfriend. It was surprising that she did not meet him earlier as at 17 years of age, she too was working in a 27-meter sailboat in Spain around the same time as Berry. Maybe they crossed paths without knowing, but then again, the Mediterranean is a large sea.

She and Berry have continued their dating life working from one yacht to other, but Ciara works not just as a deckhand but also as a chef, stewardess, and first mate. So, ‘Below Deck Sailing Yacht’ will be the first time they work in the same department on the same ship.

Deckhands, at an average, make a yearly salary of more than $45,000 in the U.S. Her long experience as a chef and stewardess must have been a factor in her salary, and then there is the salary as a cast member of the show. She can have a salary of $50,000 to $80,000, which can equal a net worth of nearly $100,000.

Chief Stewardess Jenna MacGillivray Net Worth

A fellow Canadian after Captain Glenn Shephard, Jenna MacGillvray, found her love for working in water vessels quite later in life than most cast members. It was only in 2004 that she started in the business, but with her attention to detail and perfection, she made it to becoming the Chief Stewardess in no time. She left the sea life for a while to focus on a career as a social worker.

However, that change made here surer that Chief Stew in Yachts is truly where her desires lie. She returned and has not looked back on land since. Although a controlling boss by the day, she is not a stranger to letting lose outside of work and partying.

The work of Chief Stewardess is a tough one, and for a sailboat the size of Parsifal III, the salary can range well-over $80,000 and even $100,000. As a reality star, we would not be surprised if her net worth was between $150,000 and $200,000.

The chief stew MacGillivray is not married nor dating anyone as she stepped on to the Parsifal, but it seems like that might not be the case when she walks out. She and the Yacht chef, Adam Glick, have been exchanging some flirting while also fighting other times. We will have to wait and see more episodes before we officially call them a couple.

Chef Adam Glick Net Worth & Girlfriend

Adam Glick is the only cast member in the show who is a recognizable face for past ‘Below Deck’ fans. Adam Glick is a surfer from California who lives up to the title he gave himself of an “adventure chef.” He lives in a camper van when not in a charter and loves to be outdoor or camping.

He shares his love for surfing with others by volunteering in a non-profit called ‘A Walk on Water,’ which provides therapy to all kinds of people through contact with water and surfing. He has a dog, Tex, who is just as cool as Adam and joins him in surfing and other adventures.

Adam Glick also was a star of season 2 and season 3 of ‘Below Deck Mediterranean’ and also had a 3-episode show he hosted called ‘Stoked with Adam Glick.’ He has been a bigger reality star than his co-stars, so although the average salary of luxury Yachts chef is only over $75,000, Adam Glick probably has an annual salary of over $100,000 and a net worth of around $200,000.

Adam Glick Dating Life in the Show

We have already mentioned his ongoing relationship with Chief Stewardess Jenna. Things may have gone further than we may be thinking as Adam Glick’s words in his recent appearance in ‘Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen.’ A fan called asked Adam Glick if he was single. He did not give a straight answer and instead told the viewer she would have to watch the show to find out.

Moreover, Andy Cohen decided to give his audience a better idea of what Adam meant by showing a clip of the show. The clip was of the ‘Below Deck Sailing Yacht’ cast in the hot tub with Adam and Jenna getting pretty close with each other. They even end up walking away together, hinting at a possible hook-up. Maybe they even start dating, who knows?

Chief Engineer Byron Hissey Net Worth & Married Life

Chief Engineer Byron Hissey is the only crew member after Captain Glenn Shephard, who has worked on the Parsifal III, which was five years ago. The Australian from Sydney now returns to the sailing yacht as the engineer to make sure the ship does not break down in the middle of anywhere.

Byron Hissey had a pretty wild time in his 20s so he can give even his younger co-stars a run for their money when he is partying. At the same time, he is the only married cast member on the show. He is not just a married man but a family man. He met his wife when he was working in Fort Lauderdale in Florida. The couple also has a baby daughter.

The task of a chief officer is as important as that of a Captain, so typically they are the second-highest paid in a Yacht. Byron’s long experience in the field and being the sole engineer aboard the ship in ‘Below Deck Sailing Yacht’ only adds up to his net worth and salary.

So, while chief engineers have an average salary of $150,000 to $200,000, it wouldn’t be surprising for his salary to be over $225,000, which equals a net worth of around $500,000.

Second & Third Stew Madison Stalker & Georgia Grobler

The Captain, officers, chefs, and the chief stewardess may keep the boat afloat, but it is the stewardesses who entertain and take care of the guests 24/7. If the ‘Below Deck Sailing Yacht’ cast wasn’t impressive until now, the second and third stewardesses, Madison and Georgia, would complete the whole package.

Madison Stalker is this energetic, bubbly girl with a sense of humor who was born and brought up in the Detroit suburbs. She was a competitive figure skater in her childhood who, after graduating from the University of Michigan in her childhood, bought a one-way ticket Fort Lauderdale, Florida. She followed her passions, and it paid off as she now has over 3.5 years of experience in the field.

Georgia Grobler, on the other hand, was born in South Africa and sought to teach in Thailand after completing her high school. However, she would end up in a world of Private Yachts, Catamarans, and Charters for years’ worth of experience. This will be the first time, however, where she is not the sole stewardess in a vessel. She claims to be an extrovert who can party and throw down like no other.

Madison Stalker & Georgia Grobler Instagram

While Madison and Georgia both look like cute girls, they can easily turn their sexy side on. Madison Stalker has an Instagram page, and so does Georgia Grobler, which you can follow to see them in smoking swimwear or bikinis.

Try to get close to them without consent, and they will destroy you. One jacked guest can be seen lifting Madison up and down like a weight. Instead of getting flustered or weirded out, though, she calmly asks him to let her go. The trailer also hints a possible relationship between her and co-star Parker McCown, the deckhand.

Madison & Georgia Net Worth & Salary

Madison Stalker and Georgia Grobler’s salary may be the same or at least very similar. An average Stewardess makes an annual salary of around $62,000 to $70,000. As only two stewardesses to tend to such a big vessel with the harder living conditions in a sailboat may mean they get a salary from $65,000 to $70,000.

Their net worth may vary from the personal venture, but simply from their salary and career as reality stars can be around $75,000, which would mean net worth of at least $50,000.

Deckhand Parker McCown; Dating Madison?

Last but not least, we have deckhand Parker McCown who has been in love with sailing since he learned it in summer camp as a child. He boasts an experience of working in repair, maintenance, and sailing of historic boats in a Skipjack dating back to 1901.

He may be new to a boat as big as the Parsifal III, but he is a sponge when it comes to learning through application. His long experience with smaller boats will come in handy, plus he will be paid a handsome salary as a deckhand of such a large luxury vessel. The average salary for deckhands ranges from $42,000 to $55,000. We think it is still too early to estimate Parker McCown’s net worth, which may be well below $50,000.

Park McCown Dating Co-star, Madison Stalker

So far, Parker McCown is neither married and nor dating anyone. The trailer of the ‘Below Deck Sailing Yacht’ teases that he may start dating co-star, Madison Stalker. However, we all know hook-ups are more common than actual relationships in the ‘Below Deck’ franchise. In one clip he and Madison look like a couple with him feeding her with a spoon while in other Madison can be seen saying,

“I get that you like me, but that does not mean I need your P in my V.”

It seems like the lives of the crew members of a luxury Yacht is just as strange as the high-end guests they tend to. Let us solve the mysteries of their dating life and relationships by seeing the show together. Make sure you do not miss out on the new show ‘Below Deck Sailing Yacht,’ and it’s cast which features every Monday at 9 p.m. E.T.

So far, only one episode has premiered in February 3, and episode 2 titled ‘My Big Fat Bleak Wedding’ will be coming in February 10, so make sure you do not miss out.
