Graham Raspass

Director

Having dreamed about boating his whole life, in 2003 Graham decided it was finally time to tick the dream off his bucket list.

Graham loved his time on the water so much that he turned his back on his successful corporate career determined to combine his love of boating with business.

“I chose to represent Beneteau because I knew they build the best production boats on the market and I wanted our clients to have the best possible on-water experience.

Beneteau power boats deliver a superb on-water lifestyle and are perfectly designed for Australian conditions.”

Director

Micah started racing boats at the tender age of eight and enjoyed a number of years on the professional racing circuit. After he retired from full-time racing he wanted to help others purchase quality boats … so he bought into the Beneteau dealership.

“I have been selling boats since 2003 and absolutely love what I do.

My favourite part is getting to know clients, helping them find their first boat and sharing with them the best ways to enjoy an awesome on water lifestyle. Many have become good friends. We often run into each other out on the harbour and catch up for a beer.”

Sales

Mark has over 15 years’ experience in the marine industry and a wealth of knowledge about our range of Beneteau luxury power yachts.

Growing up in England, his love of being on the water started at an early age.

“I started sailing as a kid. I used to sail dinghies after school as a hobby. My first real sailing experience, on a keelboat, was in the Greek Islands when I was 15. That gave me a taste of sailing in warmer weather!”

Moving to Australia in 2003, Mark soon decided to trade in his corporate life for a career on the water. A chance meeting saw him buy his own boat brokerage here in Sydney.

“I learnt a lot about boats during that time; it was a bit of a baptism of fire! But I did get to do a lot of sailing out of the CYC.”

Now Mark has turned his attention to power and motor yachts and there’s a lot about Beneteau that excites him.

“One of the things I really like about the Beneteau Power range is that there’s so much variation in what we can offer our clients,” says Mark. “The range is unrivalled, in my opinion. Plus, the quality is well known. Beneteau has been building yachts for over 130 years so you know you are getting a quality product.”

And Mark loves getting out on our warm Australian waters.

“The most enjoyable trip I’ve done is the trip up the east coast of Australia. What we’ve done a few times is, we’ve gone from Sydney Harbour to Pittwater to Port Stephens and up to the Gold Coast. When I talk to people who are thinking about buying a Gran Turismo or Monte Carlo, it is certainly something I’d recommend.”

From AFL to surfing, Shane has always been big on sports. He found boating later in life and made up for lost time competing in races such as the Sydney to Hobart.

Shane works with clients throughout their entire journey with their boats, starting with overseeing commissioning, to any add-ons and modifications clients may need later down the track, and warranties.

“I have helped with many modifications over the years. Once was for someone with serious health conditions; they needed medical equipment onboard with backup systems. Your boat is your leisure, and I am here to help make it whatever you want.”
