Adam Kodra, the new deckhand on Below Deck Down Under season 2, is making a buzz, but for all the wrong reasons. Long story short, he gets seasick, is afraid of water, and can’t swim!
Below, you’ll learn everything you need to know about him including his age, height, girlfriend, and family.
Meet Adam Kodra, Deckhand On Below Deck Down Under Season 2
Below Deck Down Under premiered on July 17, 2023, and this time, the M/Y Northern Sun cruised the spectacular waters of Australia. Captain Jason Chambers and Chief Stew Aesha Scott returned for the installment and also a few new crew members were added including the deckhand Adam Kodra who generated quite a buzz among fans!
Firstly, viewers were surprised that Adam had only been working in the yachting industry for a year — considering the responsibilities that came with being a crew member on a luxury yacht. But it’s not uncommon for crew members to have more experience before taking on such roles. However, if you combine his inexperience with his other weakness, it’s a perfect recipe for disaster.
In case you missed the eps, Adam gets seasick, especially considering his profession. Dealing with seasickness while working on a yacht can be quite challenging, but he was managing it somehow. On top of that, he lacked swimming skills, which was indeed an unusual and potentially concerning characteristic for someone in the yachting business.
Additionally, Adam’s unprofessional behavior of leaving the deck unsupervised at night was a serious issue. It’s standard practice to have someone on anchor watch overnight to ensure the safety of the vessel and its guests. Failing to do so could lead to dangerous situations, as evidenced by the obnoxious guests’ decision to go for a night swim without proper supervision.
But then again, thanks to these intriguing elements in the play, Adam became a central figure in the show.
How Much Is Adam Kodra Net Worth?
Adam Kodra garnered a net worth of under $250 thousand by 2023. Reportedly, his Below Deck salary was about $3,500 to $4,500 a month.
Now, talking about his profession, while it’s known that Adam only had a one-year experience before boarding M/Y Northern Sun, it also means that he has had some prior experience traversing large water bodies and certainly possessed the talent of navigating boats only through his knowledge of stars, like an old-time sailor.
Before working on boats, he worked as a waiter at Siricos.
He also said, “I was close to becoming a professional skateboarder.” Sadly, things didn’t work out for him. Instead, he joined a maritime school, the United States Merchant Marine Academy from 2016 to 2020, thanks to his counselor’s advice.
Now, he has a license that allows him to work on any ship in the world
This also means he never intended to work at the sea. But having poor grace in school, he didn’t know where else to go.
When Adam wasn’t working, he loved being social and going out to bars, clubs, plays, and sports games.
Fun Fact: Adam’s favorite place to travel was Fitzroy Island, Australia.
Adam Kodra Girlfriend
