As Below Deck Down Under viewers learned in the first few episodes, Captain Jason Chambers has been involved in a major superyacht accident in the past, but with a different vessel.

The reality star captain was at the helm of Moatize, a 45-metre luxury yacht, when it crashed while docked in Cairns, Australia in 2019. The crash, which is available on video and also shown on Below Deck, saw the motor yacht collide with the quay. Afterwards, Chambers said in an interview that it was due to a technical error.

“We came [into the marina] and made a tight turn… and our starboard gear was stuck ahead when I selected reverse,” he explained The Daily Telegraph. “We used the bow thruster to get a clear view, headed aft to exit the marina but still made it.”

Luckily for all involved, the yacht avoided colliding with another ship-turned-restaurant and there were no injuries as a result of the accident. “We did what we learned from collisions: we turned off all engines, dropped an anchor and thank God we chose a nice spot with no staff around,” he shared.
