Captain Harold Lee Rosbach is the captain of a luxury mega-yacht and a reality TV star who appears on Bravo TV’s hit series ‘Below Deck‘. Captain Lee has been a fan favorite during all his time on the show, since the show’s inception in 2013. ‘Below Deck’ follows the personal and professional lives of a crew of “yachties” (people who live and work aboard luxury yachts) as they serve high profile, super-rich, ultra-demanding clients during charter season.
Captain Lee heads his crew aboard whichever mega-yacht they are serving on with firm leadership and fatherly advice. He may look totally at home on a yacht but contrary to what most fans believe, Captain Lee was not born on a boat. He was born and raised in landlocked Saginaw, in the state of Michigan, and is 71 years old (as of 2020). He is married to the love of his life, Mary Anne. His youngest son, Joshua, passed away in 2019 due to an accidental drug overdose. Joshua was 42 at the time and his parents have now devoted themselves to raising awareness around opioid addiction.
