What Julia d'Albert Pusey Has Been Up To Since Below Deck Med

With every season of "Below Deck" (and its many spinoffs), we see familiar faces returning over and over. But there are also one-and-done yachties, like Rocky Dakota and Julia d'Albert Pusey. 

For Pusey's part, she only appeared in the first season of "Below Deck Mediterranean" before leaving the yacht life for good. But she made an impact on the show nonetheless, having been a favorite of viewers and crew members alike. Pusey quit working on ships to focus on her businesses, which had been her priority from the get-go.

Prior to hopping aboard, the "Below Deck" alum was already trying to make her mark in the fashion industry by creating her own labels. But she had to put her dream on pause in order to afford grad school, per Bravo's "Daily Dish." After working on and off on yachts, she decided to participate in a full season, thanks to the opportunity to work on a bigger ship with new crew members. "I wanted to experience a bigger yacht and team, and I had not cruised the Greek Islands before, so it was an exciting opportunity and would put me and Matty [her boyfriend at the time] in a better position for when I returned," she said.

As we all know, Pusey only lasted one season, but she has been working non-stop in a different industry after leaving the show.

It's pretty clear that Julia d'Albert Pusey's passion lies in fashion and business. That's why, after leaving the yacht life, she wasted no time working on her various ventures.

The former yachtie launched a business named Myrtle and Maude, which, according to the site, "creates natural wellbeing products for pregnancy" to "support parents through those early days of pregnancy and beyond." On Instagram, she also noted she's part of the management team for a talent and social media agency called Luxe & Co., which works with thousands of clients on tech and influencer coaching.

While the yacht life was clearly not for Pusey, she admitted that she initially found it tricky to transition to business. "Do you know what? It's a weird one, when you work in yachting. I was never fully committed to yachting, where I had a long career in it. I was very much — I dipped in and out," she told Nicki Swift in September 2021. "But I do find that people find the transition quite hard. And it is quite hard, it's just such a different lifestyle, to being on land [compared] to on sea. So I know people do find that quite difficult."

Right after leaving "Below Deck," Julia d'Albert Pusey also exchanged "I Do's" with her longtime boyfriend, Matty, in England. "We had a lovely intimate day," she shared on Instagram. They seemingly went on quite the adventure, too. "We are currently on honeymoon in Vietnam, Singapore, Bali," she noted. "We've been to 'ha long bay' on a junk boat cruising the bay, visited the caves and kayaking. We were in Hanoi when Vietnam won the football Suzuki cup and the streets were buzzing with excitement."

Now that she's living a whole other life, she does admit that she sometimes can't help but miss life on the sea. "I've got husband, I've got a dog now, so I've got my two feet firmly on land. But yet, business is going well, [I] absolutely love doing that. It's very stressful, [a] different kind of stress to yachting. But I do miss yachting," she shared with Nicki Swift. "But it's one of them games, where it's good to get into when you're younger, exhaust it, and get out. But yeah, very much do miss it."

And good news for fans! Pusey is not ruling out returning to the show. "I may do but I'm in a totally different place in my life and probably a little long in the tooth," she told Express U.K., admitting that she may no longer tolerate crew-related shenanigans. "I don't think I'd keep up with the drinking or drama. I'd never say never but I'm quite happy sitting on the couch and passing comment on the new cast doing Galley Talk."
