Hugo wants to win!

Hugo wants to win!

Hugo´s story is impressive. In just a few years on the water, he amassed a technical knowledge and sailing experience that others would need decades to acquire. After converting his first sailboat by himself, he went on to participate in the Clipper - Round the World race and win the Classe Mini race Marie-Agnès Péron in October 2020.

SVB & Hugo - a good team because we...

SVB and Hugo - a good team because we...

...Share the same
passion for boating

We love water sports!
And it's been that way for over 30 years.

That's something we have in common with Hugo, who discovered sailing during his studies and has not been able to leave the water since.

From the mountains to the sea >>

die Dinge selbst in die Hand nehmen

...Have a hands - on
mentality to get things done

We also like to do things ourselves, which means cutting wood according to our customers' personal needs, programming our online shop ourselves and designing our own catalogue. We love "sailing into a task ourselves".

Thanks to his practical skills and
down - to - earth approach to life, Hugo gets things done by himself and solves most of the technical problems on board on his own.

Hands On >>

Träume verwirklichen

...make the dream of living on the water come true.

Under the motto "Let`s sail the world", we want to encourage everyone to realise their dreams.

In pursuit of his dream, Hugo quit his job and dedicated his life to sailing.
