Miha Breskvar

After graduating from mechanical engineering and completing my bachelor's degree at the Faculty of Computer and Information Science, I continued my formal education at IEDC Business School, where I got my MBA degree.

My career started in a development team of the system for online stock exchange trading at brokerage company CBPD. Later on, I worked for Lexpera, where I was responsible for the technical and business development of one of the best legal information system IUS-INFO.

In 2013 I started my own business as a co-founder, partner, and CEO of FrodX d.o.o. – a company that consults and technically supports the biggest companies worldwide to help them grow their revenues online, such as Canon, SAP, Microsoft, Velux, Addiko Bank, Generali, Fraport, etc.

As well as helping companies to sell the way their customers want to buy, sailing is an important part of my life. During my student years, I built a racing boat with which my team and I won dozens of regattas. While making more than several thousand of nautical miles on various sailboats, I've gained a lot of valuable nautic and life lessons and experience. I've used my sailing knowledge, skills, and experience to teach more than 500 people how to sail, from 2018 I'm using them as a partner of Pegasus Yachts in order to build a modern blue water cruiser, Pegasus 50.

Dr. Ernst Thomke

I have been sailing for 50 years, during which time I have owned 4 yachts. The first of these, I built myself and the others I commissioned, and they were built to my specific requirement. These proved to be successful and close to what I needed, but the Pegasus is the first to fulfil all my needs and expectations.

Pegasus enables me to cross oceans single-handed or with a crew of friends and always feel safe, comfortable and exhilarated.

Pegasus 50 most significant difference is the concept – a bluewater sailing yacht with a well-protected covered cockpit, 360-degree vision in the saloon and gimballed saloon sofa, and double insulation for the engine, which is sited away from the living and sleeping areas of the yacht. She also provides safe movement for her crew with only a few steps and good access to well-proven equipment that is easily maintained.
