SV Yachts was founded by the two partners Nikolai Sass and Mauricio Antonio Velez in 2015. Recognizing the lack of high performance inboard boats that combine ultimate power with the epitome of luxury and usability was the basis and goal of the model ALPHA.
The design carefully leans on the beauty and soul of European and American classic boats and sport cars of the 1960s and combines this with the modern elements found on today’s super yachts. ALPHA was designed with sensual curves and stylish elements that draw the eyes to explore the multi-faceted lines.
ALPHA does not intend to be loud and obnoxious nor vain and pretentious. ALPHA is unique and fit for any situation from uncompromising race speeds to intimate relaxation and swimming to high class entrances in any social situation.
SV Yachts goes beyond local markets and offers these works of art globally to connoisseurs and enthusiasts alike.
Educated in Switzerland and the United States and acquiring multiple degrees in design, Nikolai has been a boat enthusiast since his youth. Strongly influenced by the Mediterranean style of boating and the beautiful classic wooden boats on the lakes of Switzerland, Nikolai’s European heritage has greatly added to the design and quality of SV Yachts and the model ALPHA. Having sailed large parts of the Mediterranean and Caribbean makes Nikolai uniquely qualified as a founding partner of SV Yachts.
