Nordhavn Yachts began in 1973 when Jim Leishman, Dan Streech and Joe Meglen formed a small brokerage in Dana Point, California, known as PAE (Pacific Asian Enterprises). PAE began by importing Transpac Yachts from Taiwan. The first PAE boat building project was the Mason 43 sailboat by yacht designer and naval architect Al Mason. They delivered 132 Mason 3 Series sailboats. When the cruising sailboat market began to decline in the late 1980s PAE began designing a new kind of powerboat, the 46 Nordhavn, named for its resemblance to the North Sea fishing trawlers.
Steady growth in the 1990s allowed for more Nordhavn model launches and the company has been creating amazing long-range trawling yachts ever since. With over 400 models delivered, the sea-worthiness and reliability have come to be a staunch part of the Nordhavn brand. This shipyard delivers many types of yachts with many customizations available to their customers, they are made for long voyages and traversing the globe, and have a reliable customer service approach that owners love.
