Below Deck Mediterranean: Inside The Wellington Superyacht

US network Bravo has released a video tour inside the 56.2 metre superyacht The Wellesley, star of the upcoming Below Deck Mediterranean Series 5.

The yacht, which was renamed The Wellington for the hit yacht-based US reality show, is owned by property magnate and hotelier Khalid Affara and named after his luxury art deco London hotel, The Wellesley.

Built by Oceanco in 1993, The Wellesley was transformed into a modern charter yacht under the watchful eye of Affara and features extended deck spaces and Donald Starkey-penned interiors that replicate the grandeur of the eponymous Knightsbridge hotel.

Affara focused on ensuring every detail on board is connected with the hotel, from the 1920s styling and linen in the six guest cabins to the Arabescato Corchia marble and Hermès amenities in the bathrooms.

Affara’s passion for cigars is also evident on board thanks to a bespoke humidor housing a selection of fine cigars, which guests can enjoy in the club lounge or on the connecting outdoor smoking deck.

Designed by Gerhard Gilgenast, The Wellelsey underwent a complete refit in 2016 and accommodates a total of 12 guests in five cabins.
