Aleix Selles

A man of theory and practice
Born in Barcelona in 1987, Aleix Sella is an experienced sailor. He proved himself on the 4.20, 4.7 and J80 circuits from a tender age, which is where his dream of sailing fast, at one with the elements, took shape.
Passionate about engineering and naval architecture, he excelled in his studies at the Polytechnic University of Catalonia and the University of Southampton. The quest for comfort combined with speed was central to his research during this period of education.
After kickstarting his career in Barcelona with the BYD Group S.L, Aleix joined the JYD team in 2014.

A relentless worker
Aleix brings his creativity and passion to bear in designing high performance yachts for JYD’s R&D department. He adapts to every project with ease thanks to his global view of the various projects. Attracted by everything mentally and physically related to nature, he relishes outdoor pursuits and mountaineering, climbing, running and paragliding in particular. 

Juan K: “Aleix is a really hard worker: dynamic and creative, with his finger on the pulse, he adds real zing to the research and development department”.
