Alleged yacht assault by Diddy’s son unacceptable: Captain Sandy

(NewsNation) —  If Diddy is thinking about chartering another luxury yacht for himself or his family, he may have to think again, according to one of the most famous yacht captains on the high seas.

“There’s a lot of guests that are blacklisted,” says Capt. Sandy Yawn, the star of “Below Deck Mediterranean” on Bravo.

On NewsNation’s “Banfield,” Yawn said she has no first-hand knowledge of the alleged incident involving Diddy’s son Christian Combs, but it’s safe to say that word has spread in the very tight yachting community.

“Captains talk to each other and (cruise) brokers talk to each other. There’s a lot of celebrities that we do not charter to.”

Exactly who’s been banned, she won’t say, citing her contact’s confidentiality language. But Yawn adds that yacht owners, often billionaires, also talk to each other. So when famous guests misbehave, it’s over.

“They trash the boat. They’re rude to the crew. So it’s hard for them to charter a boat.”
