The story behind My Seanna, the yacht returning for Below Deck Season 8
After taking guests throughout French Polynesia in Season 6, the 185’ superyacht My Seanna is returning to the Below Deck franchise for Season 8. Currently listed for sale, this could be My Seanna’s final season on the show.
Here’s what you need to know about one of the world’s most popular and successful superyachts.
How old is My Seanna and who owns it?
My Seanna was built in 2001 by Seattle-based yacht builder Delta Marine. Originally called the Gallant Lady, billionaire car dealer and philanthropist Jim Moran owned the yacht until 2006 when it was bought Robert Pereira and renamed Newvida. Periera is a construction magnate, whose Florida mega-mansion grabbed headlines when it went on the market for $159 million.
Beginning in 2013, Newvida underwent a breathtaking $17 million refit, rebuilding the entire interior, lengthening the ship to its current 185’ length, and adding a helipad (that to-date hasn’t been used on Below Deck). Designer Joseph Leone said the goal was to make the updated vessel ideal for charters, telling Superyacht News, “we decided the only way to make this work was to set ourselves the goal of making her the best possible yacht for charter.”
Rechristened My Seanna, the yacht continues to be one of the world’s most in-demand charter yachts.
How much does My Seanna cost?
The yacht is currently listed for sale for just over $26 million dollars. The listing details the ship’s expansive interior:
The Owners suite is a full beam master with enough closet space for the even the heaviest of shoppers. His and Her bathrooms with a walk in shower and large tub. A state of the art entertainment system make this owners suite a great place to relax and watch movies. The other four suites are beautifully appointed with all the amenities and large windows. The Starboard cabins have one King bed each while the port cabins have two Queen beds. Great for children, nannies or stowaways!Worth Avenue Yachts
The sale means this could be My Seanna’s final season on Below Deck, which has also frequently used the smaller Valor in recent seasons.
