Michael Gilman On Below Deck Adventure
Michael “Mike” Gilman is the 3rd mate from SUNY Maritime College with a B.S. in Marine Transportation. So, he is new to the yachting industry. But, despite this, he was confident that he can certainly hang with the rest of the Below Deck crew. He also said on the show that he enjoys a nice beer or wine between his hectic job.
Driven, ambitious, and dedicated he acquires an Unlimited Tonnage 3rd mate License from the US Coast Guard. On his LinkedIn, he precisely marks being a full-time third mate at the International Organization of Masters, Mates, & Pilots since January 2021 from until now.
Before this, Michael also had a career as a platoon commander and chief supply officer at the State University of New York Maritime College, as a line Cook and prep cook, as well as a customer service representative.
His BIO for Below Deck explains that he ditched his computer science studies for a life at sea. He is introduced as a green deckhand with experience working on commercial vessels, as someone eager to learn the world of yachting.
Then, when seen on Mercury keen about the water and travel, he struggles to keep up with the demands of a motor yacht. With pressure from his deck team and cross-department drama, he is caught in the dilemma if the white boat life is made for him or not.
Michael Gilman’s Net Worth
Michael Gilman reportedly had less than $200K net worth as of 2022.
According to Refinery29, the cast of Below Deck makes quite a hefty salary for just doing their jobs working on a superyacht. On a yacht the size of Mercury, a deckhand is expected to usually make around $3,500 to $4,500 a month, and up to $50,000 a season.
Deckhands, like bosuns, are the most essential crew members, as they are in charge of maintaining the ship’s deck, docking, and other operations.
Also, at the end of every charter, the whole crew gets a tip from the guests on the boat. On the seasons of Below Deck, the crew usually brings in an estimated $15,000/person in tips for about six weeks of work. That is extra to the crew’s standard salary. Moreover, the cast on the show does not work a whole yacht season, so it is likely they make more throughout the season as they shift from boat to boat.
