Nordhavn announces new addition to sales team
Pacific Asian Enterprises, Inc. (PAE) is pleased to announce the newest addition to its sales team, Devin Zwick, who will be based out of the Southwest Sales office in Dana Point, CA. A Southern California native who grew up puttering around in small boats, Zwick has spent the majority of the past 12 years working in the marine industry and brings a wealth of world experience and technical skills to his new position selling Nordhavns.
As a teen, Zwick worked as a deckhand on various sportfishing boats prior to studying for his Associates Degree in Fire Science. He then hooked up with the owner of a 55-foot Viking as a mechanic, staying with the owner as he upgraded to a 70-foot Queenship and then a 145-foot Westship. The job took him to places all over the globe from the east and west coasts of the U.S., to the Bahamas, the Caribbean and Central America, and a season in the Mediterranean.
Following up his job managing the Westship, Zwick founded Delta Yacht Management, where he oversaw the budget and crews of the boats he formerly worked on. At the same time, Zwick was introduced to Nordhavn as captain of an N55, which led to more jobs delivering different Nordhavns, including one trip from the Galapagos to Auckland. Other deliveries took him from Panama to Brazil with stops in the San Blas Islands, Trinidad & Tobago and Brazil as well as Uruguay.
“I’ve helped a wide range of boat owners enjoy their vessels, which I have come to love over the past six years,” notes Zwick. “I know these boats well and feel I can be a great asset to anybody looking to buy a new or brokerage boat by steering them in the direction most prudent for their personal cruising plans.
“I especially look forward to helping newcomers appreciate [their Nordhavns] to their full potential.”
In his free time, Zwick enjoys fishing and freediving off his 15’ Boston Whaler, doing projects around the house, playing golf, riding motorcycles and exploring new places.
PAE staffs seven sales offices around the world including California, Washington, Rhode Island, Florida, England, Australia and Turkey.
