On the Below Deck reality TV series, TV viewers can get brief glances at the interior of the Ohana, but if you are really curious about how the Ohana looks, be sure to watch the video tour of the luxury yacht below. Those of you who like what you see might be interested in chartering the Ohana for your own sea adventure. The Ohana is available for charter, but the name of the ship has changed. The Below Deck luxury yacht charter is now called the Rhino.

According to Yacht Charter Fleet, the Rhino, formerly the Ohana, can accommodate up to 10 guests.  Inside, there’s a master suite, two double cabins and two twin cabins. The yacht is air conditioned and has Wi Fi. The Jacuzzi on the deck of the ship is a familiar sight on Below Deck. Other amenities include a waterslide, wave runners, a trampoline, snorkeling gear and more. The yacht can be chartered for either the summer or the winter season. Yacht Charter Fleet has the luxury yacht charter price listed as $140,000 per week in addition to any other expenses for both seasons.

In Below Deck, the yacht is in service in the British Virgin Islands.  The Rhino actually services New England, the Bahamas, the Caribbean, and St. Barts in addition to the Virgin Islands. The information to charter the yacht is on the Yacht Charter Fleet site.

There had been some rumblings on the net about another crew that had been hired to do the actual work on the Ohana during the show. It is evident, however, from the cast bios on VH1 that most of the crew members do have some boating experience.

That’s in spite of the fact that Below Deck cast member Andrew Sturby left one of the portholes open in his  room, and sea water  was on the floor in one of the first few episodes of the show.  Andrew is actually a former Abercrombie and Fitch model; no other deckhand experience was listed in his VH1 bio. Jennice Ontiveros, however, was a deckhand for at least one summer in 2013 in Michigan, and Deckhand Kelley Johnson is a former Marine who worked on a yacht before entering the corporate world. On the show, the crew earns dollars in tips. The amount varies, based on the generosity of the guests on the ship.

In real life, the Ohana, now the Rhino can accommodate a crew of 10 people. So, even though the Below Deck cast is not on the Rhino at this time, anyone who plans to charter the yacht should figure in the cost for the charter and a lot of extra cash for the tip if great service and pampering is received onboard. The Rhino appears to be a beautiful yacht!

Below Deck airs on Tuesdays on Bravo at 9 p.m. Easter/8 p.m. Central Time.
