After Sydney started her sailor’s life at the age of 6 days aboard her parents’ boat Athena, she has continued to be on the decks. She was about 6/7 years of age when her parents bought the Schooner Freedom (2001). And according to The Freedom’s own website, Sydney has been “either below decks, doing homework, above decks, working the sails, or behind the scenes, working the office.”
The website also mentioned that Sydney was working as Schooner’s resident blogger and social media expert. Actually, Sydney’s education was also in a similar field. She was actually a Broadcasting and Communications major during college. She graduated from the University of Florida in 2017.
Apart from being aboard The Freedom, Sydney was also a world traveler as well as a yogi.

Apart from her parent’s Schooner, Sydney had worked for another yacht called Parsifal III. And because Parsifal III was part of the Bravo TV reality show called Below Deck Sailing Yacht, Sydney also appeared on the second season of the show. Sydney worked as a deckhand in Parsifal III.
Sydney Zaruba Boyfriend
Like any other reality show, Below Deck Sailing Yacht has its own drama. And for the short time that Sydney Zaruba has been a part of the show, she has been involved in one of the dramas of the show: the love triangle between Sydney and her co-stars Alli Dore and Gary King.
A little background first: Gary King is the first officer of the yacht and Alli was one of the stewardesses. During one of the episodes of the show, it was revealed that Gary and Sydney had hooked up, which they both admitted was just a one-night-stand.
However, Sydney started to develop feelings for Gary, whereas Gary had started to develop feelings for Alli. Gary started to actively pursue Alli and Sydney got a bit jealous. She said a few not very nice things about Alli and the relationship between them just soured. Before all that drama, Alli and Sydney were actually starting to become good friends.
Anyway, Gary and Alli eventually become girlfriend and boyfriend. And Sydney and Alli pretty much stopped talking after that. Sydney even blocked Alli on Instagram. As the new episodes of the show were appearing, there were new developments. Apparently, Alli halted her relationship with Gary after she found out about Gary and Sydney’s earlier hook-up. And Gary was seen already flirting with Sydney.
Having said that, the shooting of the show was over and everything that was happening in the show had already happened long before. And the latest real-life out-of-TV news was that Gary and Alli were moving in together.
And also that we knew nothing more about Sydney Zaruba’s boyfriends, past or present.
