About the founders
Leif A. Stavøstrand
Leif was born in Canada, but grew up on, in and by the ocean on a fairy tale island in Western-Norway, Svanøy. His passion for boats led him into a maritime career where he sailed the seven seas for many years and he has circumnavigated the globe numerous times, visiting more than 40 countries and countless ports. In 2012 he decided to go ashore where he became CEO on Norway’s largest oil supply base, Saga Fjordbase. He kickstarted the “Green & Lean Base” initiative cutting great amounts of greenhouse gas directly and indirectly – a successful project that is still ongoing. He supplemented his competence with a B.Sc. Naval Architect and an Executive MBA. In 2018 a new era began where Leif decided to combine all his passions, concern for Global Warming, and experience together with his Father Gunnar to start Evoy. In the summer of 2019, the demo boat Evoy1 was baptized by the PM of Norway – Erna Solberg – and in the fall the boat made an unofficial World Record with 55 knots. The voyage has only just begun, and Leif is in for the long-haul!
