Another charter season in the Mediterranean gets under way as Captain Sandy Yawn and the crew of Motor Yacht Talisman Maiton cruise the legendary Italian coast. Chef Adam returns and is ready to redeem himself with Sandy after nearly getting fired last season, and he's determined to stay in the galley and out of love triangles. Meanwhile, returning chief stew Hannah enters her eighth season in yachting and finds herself at a crossroads on whether she should continue her yachtie life or look to settle down and start a family. Bosun Conrad is only 23, but wise beyond his years, and when fellow deckhand Joao questions his age, he quickly has to establish who's in charge. Third stew, and former beauty queen, Kasey comes aboard teeming with confidence, but is quickly sidelined with a sudden illness causing Hannah and second stew Brooke to pick up the slack. When the first charter guests of the season arrive full of demands and criticisms about the food and service, Sandy quickly wonders whether she made a mistake bringing back Adam and Hannah.
