Captain Lee Rosbach


Dec 11, 2016

Vancouver, B.C. – Captain Lee Rosbach, star of Bravo TV’s popular reality series Below Deck, is setting sail for Vancouver from January 18 to 22 2017 to mingle with, share stories and answer questions from Vancouver International Boat Show attendees and show fans. 

“Every year we strive to bring new and exciting elements to offer the public and this year is certainly unique,” says Show Manager, Eric Nicholl. “We are thrilled to have Captain Lee join us as the celebrity guest for the 55th annual Vancouver International Board Show. With Captain Lee’s adventurous, no-nonsense personality, show goers will definitely want to hear from his vault of stories from being at-sea.”


On Below Deck, Rosbach oversees the command of the 154-foot superyacht Valour, an eclectic crew and an even more diverse group of on-board guests as they sail through exotic Caribbean destinations. The show is into its fourth season and gaining in popularity with anyone who ever dreamed of living on a yacht year-round.


Although the Captain has more than 20 years experience in the industry, it wasn’t his first career choice. While living in Turks and Caicos and managing a restaurant for a living, Rosbach discovered the allure of the high seas after serving as a mate on a sailboat part time. He soon realized his passion was the sea and at age 35, obtained his captain’s license and left the restaurant industry behind.


Rosbach will be onsite meeting fans and sharing stories of his luxurious life at sea during the following times:


•Wednesday: 12pm-3pm & 5pm-7pm

•Thursday: 12pm-3pm & 5pm-7pm

•Friday: 12pm-3pm & 5pm-7pm

•Saturday: 12pm-3pm & 5pm-7pm
