Slim Bouricha earned his degree in mechanical engineering at George Washington University in the US. Working in merchant marine shipyards in the early stages of his career, where he learned the importance of maintenance and operational systems in commercial shipping, he also successfully designed and built equipment and facilities in the oil and gas industries. This experience is clearly reflected in the yachts designed and produced by Lynx Yachts. Importantly, the sea is part of his DNA. Having sailed since childhood with the rest of his family, he also designed his first boat at the tender age of four!
