Welcome to Nordhavn.com - Power Thats Oceans Apart
P.A.E. marks 10 years since going around the world
It was 10 years ago this week that a 40-foot boat called NORDHAVN wound its way into Dana Point Harbor covering the last few miles that would cap off a glorious circumnavigation and launch Pacific Asian Enterprises, Inc. into the trawler juggernaut it is known as today. Dubbed the Around The World voyage, or ATW, it was an unprecedented trip, mainly in the manor that it was executed: five different crews – consisting mainly of P.A.E. staff – guiding a 40-foot production powerboat around the world with stops made only for re-fueling, waiting out weather or crew changing. It was a record-setting trip for the speed – and size of vessel – in which it was completed (a record that still holds today). But more important, it provided a global platform to prove just how capable Nordhavns are.
To celebrate this historic occasion, nordhavn.com will be launching a special section dedicated to the ATW complete with Q&As with all of the crew members who took part in the voyage, a look at where the ATW boat is now, the impact the trip had on the trawler world, video footage taken onboard, and more.
