The trailer for Below Deck Mediterranean season seven is officially here, introducing fans to Malia White’s replacement, Raygan Tyler.
The bosun recently confirmed that she will not be returning to the Med spin-off of the Below Deck universe, leaving us all waiting to find out who would be in charge of the deck crew.
But it turns out the newbie has a lot of work to do, as she’s seen being given a stern talking to by Captain Sandy Yawn.
‘You gotta manage this deck. I don’t want to be the bosun,’ she warns as the gang take the chaos to Malta.
Raygan is joined on the deck by returning castmate Mzi ‘Zee’ Dempers, as well as new stars Storm Smith and Jason Gaskell.
It’s all change in the interior as well, with Natasha Webb replacing Katie Flood as chief stew, leading stews Natalya Scudder and Kyle Viljoen.

‘The chief stew and the chef have to work well together,’ Sandy teases of the new relationships on board. ‘It permeates through the boat.’
According to a synopsis, via US Weekly, things aren’t quite smooth sailing between the pair, when ‘surprising friction in the galley intensifies between the Chief Stew and Chef, who came onto the boat as colleagues and friends’.
It is also a chaotic charter season for the exterior team when one deckhand ‘is unable to adapt to the high demands’ – but will this lead to more tension between the crew?

Malia confirmed that she will not be returning to the fold last month, explaining that she had briefly hung up her epaulets.
Speaking about her exit, she insisted that it has nothing to do with the backlash from fans over her involvement in former chief stew Hannah Ferrier’s axe, vowing: ‘I didn’t leave for that reason.

‘I haven’t left. It’s not that I might never come back to the show. I’m just not on the next season. I got in a really bad scooter accident. And I’m studying for this big [exam], so it’s just a good time for me to take a break and take a step back. And the misconceptions are on the show [that] I got a lot of heat for the whole …read more
