Recently, a throwback photo of Captain Glenn began circulating on social media as fans commented on how handsome they thought he looked and joked that Captain Lee had been replaced as the “Stud of the Sea.” One post, shared by the Instagram account “Bravo Then vs Now,” had a couple of side-by-side photos of the captain showing the throwback photo next to his “Below Deck Sailing Yacht” cast photo:
Captain Glenn himself commented on the post, writing, “I’d sail with that guy” along with a crying laughing emoji. The throwback photo was also shared on Instagram page “Below Deck Above Average.” The original photo was first shared by Shephard as a throwback photo on January 6, 2022, and he captioned it:
New Years Resolution: Try to get back down to my fighting weight. Or at least a bit closer, wish me luck. From back when I was a chamois technician in my early days, circa 2004. And yes, I am holding my gut in. On the dock in St Barth’s, my favorite Caribbean island.

Captain Glenn Has Been in the Industry for Over 20 Years & Now Lives in Palma de Mallorca, Spain
As he mentioned on “Below Deck Sailing Yacht,” Captain Glenn is originally from Montreal, Canada, but now lives in Palma de Mallorca, Spain. His Bravo bio states, “Capt. Glenn’s life has always been dictated by the need to see the world. Early on in his travels, he was invited onboard a 50-foot classic sailboat to work as a deckhand and was immediately hooked and has never looked back.”
According to Bravo, Shephard has more than 21 years of experience working in the yachting industry and spent the last 12 years captaining Parsifal III, the boat used on “Below Deck Sailing Yacht.” His bio adds, “Glenn knows how to keep his cool while catering to the uber elite. This laid-back Captain is calm until his limits are pushed. Don’t mess with Capt. Glenn!”
The show is not only popular among Bravo fans, but Shephard shared that his family members are also huge supporters. “My mom loves the show,” he spilled in March 2021. “My brother, his family, they all love it. Maybe I’m sort of like a pseudo-celebrity in the East Coast of Canada, Nova Scotia, where my family’s from.”
