The list of television shows canceled has been released by the networks. Is Below Deck Mediterranean and Below Deck Sailing Yacht on that list?
No one knows exact reasons for the cancellation of particular shows. In specific, decreased viewship, lack of political correctness, unpopular storylines?
Per TV Insider, in no particular order, some shows did not fare well. For example, gone are ABC’s, The Baker and the Beauty, and CBS’s, Criminal Minds and God Friended Me. In addition, Cinemax’s Strike Back, The CW’s, Arrow, and Facebook Watch’s, Sorry for Your Loss. Further, Fox’s Almost Family, Freeform’s Party of 5, the History Channel’s, Vikings, and POP TV’s, Schitt’s Creek.
Good news, viewers. The Below Deck shows are not on the chopping block this season.
In conclusion, this year has been a series of challenges. For instance, the Coronavirus Pandemic, protests about police brutality and racism (think George Floyd and Breonna Taylor, etc), and decisions to wear or not to wear masks (and thoughts of political motivations behind health choices). In addition, the Australian bushfire, the deaths of Kobe Bryant plus 8 passengers in helicopter crash, flooding in Indonesia, the phases of the moon and planets, business closures, you name it.
Life is returning to normal. Yes, it is a “new normal,” but nonetheless, MORE normal than in the past few months. Yachtsmen and women are renting yachts and going on vacation again.

Thinking of sheltering in place? First, in a remote destination? Second, in private? Third, on a luxury yacht charter vessel? Great thought, but STOP. Before you get your hopes up, we have a report. Getting on a yacht may be a BIG problem right now. This is a result of more islands closing their borders to yachts. It is particularly difficult for all.
Traditionally, spring is the most popular season for Caribbean yacht charters. We have fully-crewed superyachts in position. They are ready to accept guests. For example, from the Bahamas to Bonaire.
Unfortunately, the unexpected outbreak of a global viral pandemic has affected the industry. It brings the idea of a charter in the Caribbean to a screeching halt.
This started as travel advisories and then curfews. It morphed into full closures of most island nations in the Caribbean. This affects both air and sea access.
In some cases, charter guests already onboard may stay onboard. However, as of March 30, most charter vessels are restricted. Therefore, they cannot accept new guests in almost every inhabited island in the Caribbean. For instance, the British Virgin Islands and St. Marten.
Restrictions exist. For instance,
In conclusion, this is not a complete list of all restrictions in the Caribbean. Border and marina/port closures change rapidly. Moreover, air traffic suspensions change, too. In the meantime, 1-800 Yacht Charters will keep this information updated as much as possible. We encourage our blog readers to check official country websites and local news sources for the latest travel advisories and closures/restrictions.

Avid yachtsman Gregory Kutsen is the owner of Mantus Marine. His company manufactures and sells nautical items. For instance, boat anchors, boat lights, SCUBA gear, and other products. Mantus Marine products are found on many luxury yacht charter vessels.
Kutsen’s goal is to make everyone’s boating experience more enjoyable and safer.
“We constantly look at new ways of solving existing problems.” Gregory Kutsen
Apparently, Kutsen’s company mission goes beyond the marine industry. Greg Kutsen, nautical business owner, is also Dr. Greg Kutsen, MD. Kutsen is an emergency room physician in Houston Texas. There’s a critical shortage of personal protective equipment (PPE) in his community. As a result, Kutsen and Mantus Marine are shifting from building anchors. Now, they convert snorkel masks into PPE medical devices to address the shortage!
Kutsen sees firsthand the importance of medical equipment to protect the hospital workers in Texas.
“I work as an ER Doctor so the shortage and the need for PPE was very clear (amid the COVID-19 pandemic).”
Mantus Marine has several innovative solutions to address the needs of health care professionals and hospitals. They use 3D printers to convert snorkel masks into BiPAP ventilator masks. They also design and produce acrylic intubation shields.
The masks and shields are donated to local emergency rooms and ICUs in the Houston area.
Simultaneously, the anchor manufacturer addresses the immediate shortages of PPE in health care systems. A recent media article states
“…(using their connections with) international supply chains…Mantus Marine purchased over 1.5 million surgical masks, 100,000 *KN95 masks, and 70,000 face shields to help supply hospitals across the state, including the Memorial Hermann and Methodist Hospital systems in Houston and regional hospitals and clinics in the Dallas area.”
Yes, you read it* correctly in the quote. Masks donated were KN95 (not N95) masks. KN95 masks are made in China and have a different fit than N95 masks, among a few other differences. Both are authorized for use during the Covid-19 pandemic. For more information about the differences in KN95 and N95, click here.
Jana Sheeder, President of 1-800 Yacht Charters and her team are proud to acknowledge Dr. Gregory Kutsen and Mantus Marine. These heroes solve problems and make a difference. Both on sea and on land. APPLAUSE AND GRATITUDE.
