Captain Graham Barnes

Graham Barnes has just celebrated his 11th year captaincy of the M/Y Captivator. Born in Leeds, Yorkshire; he immigrated to South Africa in 1984 as a ten year old. Educated and schooled in Johannesburg and Cape Town, Graham grew sea legs at an early age.  Wanting to travel, Graham left South Africa after 4 years of service as a Navy Deep Diver Combat Operator. He served as Senior Diver aboard a Torpedo Recovery Vessel, and then worked for 2 years in operations for an Operational Diving Team assisting British and American Militaries in various operations around the world.

After the Navy, Graham lived and worked in Nassau, Bahamas for 2 years as a Dive/Charter Captain. In 1999, Graham charted his way back to the United States.  After working on various yachts, he assumed command aboard Captivator, a Palmer Johnson Yacht, built in Sturgeon Bay, WI.

Captivator spends 4 months a year on Lake Michigan where Graham continuously captains the boat north and south each year. He has over 35,000 miles on our country’s inland waterways and lakes. Lake Michigan in general is his favorite.

Graham actively supports environmental awareness in the industry and its beneficial properties for the cause of emissions into our environment. He is also a father to two little girls who motivate him to protect our natural resources.
