Captain Lee Rosbach’s Below Deck journey started sailing yacht Honor in season one. He then went on to command a dozen of superyachts: Ohana, Eros, Valor, My Seanna, meeting new cast members and making more fans each season.
Captain Lee discovered his never-ending love for the water while managing restaurants in Turks & Caicos. At the time, he landed an opportunity to serve as a mate on a sailboat delivery. This led him to obtain his Captain’s license at 35. And, so he left the restaurant business behind, instead, pursuing a career of commanding superyachts.
Then one day, he received a phone call that said some TV network wanted to do a TV show on the boat, that they want to charter it for six weeks, and all he was required was to go down to St. Maarten and drop the boat off. And, so happened Below Deck and Captain Lee a forever name attached to it.

While the other trusted reports estimated his net worth to be standing somewhere between $800K–$1 million (before Feb. 2021).

Captain Lee’s son Joshua Lee “Josh” Rosbach, died untimely at the age of 42 on July 22, 2019.
Even though his obituary read: “he passed away in the comfort of his home”, it was a tragic passing. Especially for Lee and the family who lost their beloved one to an accidental drug overdose.
On Feb. 5, 2021, talking to Ellen DeGeneres on her celebrity talk show, Captain Lee for the very first time reflected on Joshua’s passing. He stressed discussing the importance of speaking out about deaths by accidental overdose.
“It’s the elephant in the room that people don’t want to confront, and I just think it has to be, even though it makes you extremely uncomfortable and [it’s] very painful to do so…Somebody has to step up.”
Lee even got his son’s face tattooed on his chest.
