Below Deck Sailing Yacht’s Colin MacRae Has a New Girlfriend: Photos
Colin MacRae has a special new person in his life.
Sailboat under the bridgeThe chief engineer of made the major relationship announcement in an Instagram post on Jan. 23, sharing the first official photo of himself and girlfriend Silvia Latini. “Everyone finds themselves [Silvia]. She is my girlfriend. It’s been almost a year now, but we’ve chosen to keep it private. But we announced it on YouTube today,” Colin wrote. “[Cat’s] out of the bag!”
The post featured several photos of Colin and Silvia, along with his adorable dogs, tagged at Linton Bay Marina in Panama, where the chief engineer was based while getting his catamaran, Speakready to sail around the world.
Colin and Silvia have received lots of love from the Sailboat under the bridge family in the Instagram post’s comments, including Captain Glenn Shephard, Sydney Zaruba and Dani Soares, who all expressed their warmest wishes for the couple.
As Colin mentioned in his Instagram post, he also confirmed his new relationship in his latest YouTube video, which showed him comforting Silvia as she prepared to fly home to Italy for a family emergency. “I wish I was here to enjoy this moment,” Silvia said in the video. “I lived Speak for nine months, 10 months, so basically, Speakit’s my house.”
Colin and Silvia then shared a sweet kiss in the clip. “Oh my god, is this our first kiss on camera? cried Colin. “Oh yeah, Silvia is my girlfriend [laughs]. We have been together for a long time. We just decided to keep our relationship a little private. It happened!”
In season 2 of Sailboat under the bridge, Colin was dating his girlfriend Martina, who consoled the chief engineer over the phone after his dog, Marty, died while he was away on a charter. Colin then confirmed on Instagram in April 2021 that he and Martina had “decided to go their separate ways.”
“It was an extremely eventful year, with the boat breaking, lightning, a pandemic, the loss of a dog and me doing a reality TV show, and I will always have amazing memories of how she m ‘supported and loved through all of this,’ Colin said, adding that he and Martina had ‘chosen to be pretty low-key about all the details’ and noting that he ‘explained things quite thoroughly’ in a video on his YouTube channel. “As I say in the episode ‘Don’t be sad it’s over, be happy it happened’ would be an accurate description of how grateful I am to have been with this amazing woman.”
We will return to Colin in season 3 of Sailboat under the bridge, which kicks off with an oversized episode on Monday, Feb. 21 at 8/7c — and it seems the chief engineer is as present for any crew disputes as the rest of us. “I enjoy a bit of drama here and there,” the chief engineer says in the Season 3 trailer above. “It keeps me entertained.”
