According to Crewfinders, a website where people who want to work at sea can look for employment, a chief stew like Kate Chastain stands to earn between $62,000 and $75,000 per charter season on the kind of yacht featured on Below Deck, most of which are in the 150-foot range. Meanwhile, second and third stews are reportedly pulling in about $50,000 per season, chefs make anywhere between $52,000 and $72,000. A bosun, or senior crewman, will earn up to $52,000, and deckhands will apparently pull in between $40,000 to $52,000.
Last but most definitely not least, a captain's salary allegedly starts at $120,000. In fact, it's estimated that Captain Lee himself could make up to $210,000 per year, depending on the size of the boat he's manning, which isn't bad at all.
Luxury Yacht Group also suggests that wages could potentially be even higher, depending on the experience of individual crew members. For instance, the site reports that an experienced captain can make up to $25,000 a month. Yes, in just one month.
Kate Chastain discussed yacht crew tips in an interview with Entertainment Tonight and said,
"We're working not just eight-hour shifts...we're working pretty much around the clock...All the days start to blur together. And during the tip meeting, Captain Lee will say what we got and I'm always like, 'Is that good? I don’t know anymore…$3,000, are we happy with this?'"
