As Below Deck Sailing Yacht Season 3 wraps up with a reunion on June 27, fans of the Below Deck franchise will be thrilled to find out that a new season of Below Deck Mediterranean is set to debut on Bravo on July 11 (episodes will drop a week early on Peacock).

Longtime star Captain Sandy Yawn is back on the show, and she's joined by Season 6 deckhand, Mzi "Zee" Dempers, on the mega yacht Home. The rest of the crew is new, but, based on the teaser trailer, it won't take long for them to become acquainted with one another.

As the vessel cruises around the Mediterranean Sea via Malta on Season 7 of the show, we rounded up some information about the nine cast members, including their bios, and where you can find them on Instagram.

For the sixth season in a row, Captain Sandy is back to steer the vessel on Below Deck Mediterranean. Since she joined the cast of the Bravo spin-off in Season 2, Captain Sandy has become the face of the show.

This time around, Captain Sandy doesn't have a returning chief stew or Bosun to help her out (Zee Dempers is the only other cast member who has appeared on the show before).

You can check out her Instagram account here.

The Season 7 chef hails from the United Kingdom, and he has a passion for adventure. When he's not cooking, Chef Dave climbs mountains (he will attempt to climb Mount Everest in 2023), skydives, and skis.

In addition to cooking on boats for seven years, Chef Dave also has a restaurant in France that is open seasonally.

Dave's Instagram account highlights his food, and his outdoor adventures.

The chief stew is from the English countryside, and she loves to throw a themed party on the boat. When she's not working on a yacht, Natasha operates a recruitment agency, Indie-Pearl.

As viewers learned from the trailer, Natasha's romance with Chef Dave will be a major storyline on Season 7.

Other than Captain Sandy, Zee is the only other familiar face on the show when Season 7 begins. Zee, who is from South Africa, became a fan favorite when he was a "green" deckhand on Season 6 (and when his alter ego, Maverick, emerged during crew nights out).

Zee and his two brothers work in the yachting industry, and you can keep up with the Below Deck Med star on Instagram here.

Storm is currently based in Italy, and he shares his travel posts on his Instagram profile.

Before he became a deckhand, Jason actually worked in finance for about a decade. He then worked as a skipper on a sailboat, before he decided to give superyachts a try.

Jason also is skilled in sewing and in embroidery, and he makes custom swimsuits for his pals. You can check him out on Instagram.

Below Deck Mediterranean Season 7 will premiere on Bravo on July 11 at 8 p.m. ET. Peacock subscribers can watch new episodes a week early.
