About Grahame Bear

My first delivery was when I was 18 years old, a 25ft quarter tonner to Eden and back for a regatta. Since then I have done countless yacht deliveries for numerous skippers I raced with but it wasn’t until eight years ago when the skipper I was racing with offered to pay me to deliver his yacht back to Sydney from Airlie Beach that “Special Delivery” the business, began. Since then I have logged over 70,000 nautical miles and 95 successful deliveries.
