Compass Yacht Delivery was founded by Sven. He is an extremely goal-oriented person, with his entire life being spent focusing on “what’s next”. Having spent half of his life out of his home country gives him the ability to tackle cultural barriers and gel with people from various countries and ethnic backgrounds.
Sven has spent much of life in, on and near water, growing up in the ancient Belgian port-city of Antwerp. A globetrotter, sailor, life saver, CMAS dive instructor and avid kite surfer from young age Sven holds the commercial qualification of Yacht Master Offshore 500T and is GMDSS licensed. Sven is also an elected OCC Port Officer for the entire Belgian coast until 2025.
He has over 20 years of experience on many different sailing- and motor- yachts on four different continents. From hobie 16 catamarans to 80ft barges to modern cruising and regatta yachts, and from fast RIB’s and tenders to slow big river-boats to planing 150ft luxury power yachts.
