Thanks to social media, the world of entertainment and celebrities has become more visible than ever in a past few decades. With 22 successful seasons of “The Bachelor” and 13 of “The Bachelorette,” ABC has created a reality TV phenomenon with a dedicatedly loyal fanbase—now commonly referred to as "Bachelor Nation." Through all the drama, the group dates, the one-on-ones, and the rose ceremonies, contestants have somehow found a way to fall in love in the extravagant, camera-heavy environment.
Recently boats.com gave you a closer look at a Ferretti Custom Line Yacht featured in the current season of “The Bachelor” (which two-part finale airs this coming Monday night, March 5 at 8 p.m. on ABC). While season 22 star Arie Luyendyk Jr. gets closer and closer to his future, we’re shifting our focus to the past. After 16 years of filming and almost 230 episodes, it’s time we highlight just a few of the many yachts featured on the show—and on social media—throughout the recent years.

Denison Yacht Sales Leight Star (Nick’s Season 2017)
From helicopter to mega yacht, Nick Viall sure was traveling in style during his season of “The Bachelor.” Denison Yacht Sales boasts that Leight Star has “143 feet of contemporary external lines, four levels of spacious deck space, modern luxury interior and professional crew, she is without a doubt one of the premier yachts of the West coast.”
Deep Sea Fishing in the Bahamas (Ben’s Season 2016)
Talk about getting your hands dirty… Ben Higgins puts his date to the test as they head out on a deep sea fishing adventure while in the Bahamas. Sure, it’s no yacht, but look at that catch!

South of France by Boat (Andi’s Season 2014)
Josh won Andi’s heart (temporarily) while making a stop in the South of France in Marseille. Although he may have been the winner at the end of the season, we all know how that turned out… Andi, a small piece of advice from the team at boats.com: forget the boys...stick to the boats!
As "The Bachelor" wraps up its 22nd season, we know Bachelor Nation is already awaiting the premiere of this summer's "Bachelor in Paradise," and the announcement of "The Bachelorette" this coming fall. Inevitably, hearts will continue to be broken, some will find love, and *fingers crossed* there will be yachts...
