The Boat Captain was a fictional unnamed henchman to cyber-terrorist and former MI6 operative, Raoul Silva, who served as the captain of Sévérine's boat, the Chimera. A minor character, he appeared in the 2012 James Bond film Skyfall, portrayed by Serbian actor Milorad Kapor.


The Boat Captain is first seen in his boat in Shanghai awaiting for Silva's mistress Sévérine following the death of Patrice at the hands of MI6 agent James Bond. However, Silva soon learns that Sévérine has defected herself to Bond for her safety.

To that end, Silva gets the Captain and his crew to hold both Bond and Sévérine hostages and deliver them to his island, near Nagasaki Harbor. During the meeting between Bond and Silva, the Captain is seen at the background, acting as a guard. He later helps the rest of Silva's men in preparing a classic game by using Sévérine as a target with a glass of alcohol on her head. By Silva's orders, the Captain holds Bond at gunpoint to make him shoot down the glass if he can. After Bond fails, Silva kills Sévérine, but this resorted an angry Bond to smack the Captain's arm before shooting down the rest of the Silva's men with the Captain's gun. He also pulls the Captain's leg. Eventually, one of the henchmen tries to shoot down Bond with his rifle, but Bond spins the captain into the path of the bullets. As such, the Captain is accidentally shot to his death by the thug, who would later end up shot to death by Bond while Silva is arrested by MI6.

Bond would later find out that Silva was planning to get himself arrested as part of his true plan to discredit MI6 and kill M for betraying him to the Chinese (which became a complete success), and that the Captain was nothing more than a pawn alongside Silva and the rest of Silva's thugs as part of Ernst Stavro Blofeld's true plot of wreaking psychological pain on Bond.
