Luke Jones From Below Deck Down Under: All We Know About the Star

If there’s one thing nobody can deny, it’s that the ‘Below Deck’ franchise has done wonders in reality television by bringing the luxurious world of yachting right to the front and center. Thus, its latest iteration, ‘Below Deck Down Under‘ — a Bravo/Peacock original living up to its title as it takes us through an archipelago just off the coast of Queensland, Australia — is no different. Yet for now, if you wish to learn more about season 2’s Bosun Luke Jones, with a focus on both his personal and professional experiences, we’ve got all the details for you.

Luke’s Early Age Affinity for Water Sports

Reportedly born on June 19, 1988, in Gold Coast, Australia, Luke was relatively young when he first developed an interest in water sports and activities owing to his sandy, wondrous surroundings. It hence comes as no surprise that he gradually evolved into a complete adventure seeker, which his family has supported at every step of the way despite sparking a physical distance between them. After all, even though the 35-year-old prefers to keep them well away from the limelight for privacy reasons, he has made it clear they understand his passion, and he’s lucky “that they love to travel” too.

Luke Jones’ Profession

While there’s not much public information regarding Luke’s educational qualifications or early career, we know he’s a devoted world traveler and a successful entrepreneur. Whether it be Andorra, California, Costa Rica, France, Spain, or Sri Lanka, among many more, the current Dubai, UAE resident has been everywhere in the past few years alone. Nevertheless, Luke recently candidly told Bravo the best place he has ever been to is the East African island nation of Seychelles, where he was fortunate enough to be based for four years: “That place is heaven on Earth.”

As for if Luke ever misses his native Australia, the truth is, he doesn’t. He stated, “I don’t miss home anymore because I’ve been away so long and have had so many other homes. I honestly feel like the world is my home.” Yet, Luke also admitted that traveling and yachting, the latter of which he has specifically been doing for over seven years, is not all sunshine and roses due to the “isolation from friends and family.”

The Bravo star continued, “It’s about understanding that while working on boats, you’re opening up your mind and life to an abundance of new people and experiences. You’re going with the wind letting yourself be free with the travels.” Coming to Luke’s incredibly thriving entrepreneurial endeavors, he co-founded two Dubai-based brands: an action, fitness, and sports training center called Madness X Go, as well as a wave coaching plus jet board distributor Wave Shark Dubai.

Dating Speculations: Luke Jones’ Current Status

Although Luke hasn’t explicitly specified his relationship status to anybody in any way, shape, or form recently, it is possible he’s currently involved and is simply keeping it on the down low. The reason — he does prefer to keep his private life away from prying eyes, and it’s simple protection from trolls since he has now evolved into a reality star thanks to ‘Below Deck Down Under.’ Nevertheless, unless Luke himself clarifies his romantic standing, we’ll go by the assumption he’s happily single at the moment despite rumors suggesting he could be dating Abu Dhabi-based fitness trainer/yoga teacher Diana Maldonado.
