Captain's Report

Builders Commentary

For the past 15 years, Pacific Asian Enterprises, Inc. (PAE) has devoted its efforts toward the development of the Nordhavn line of offshore passage making trawlers. Endeavors such as the Around-The-World voyage in a Nordhavn 40 and the Nordhavn Atlantic Rally, combined with innovative design ideas have set PAE atop this growing industry. However, the roots of the successful bluewater power yacht franchise actually lie under an impressive sailing legacy that saw the construction of over 250 cruising sailboats. PAE’s Mason line was first introduced in 1979 and models ranged from 34 to 64 feet.

PAE’s interest in sail has been rekindled with their innovative design: a motorsailer that will have true Nordhavn capabilities with transoceanic range under power alone and modest sailing performance in offshore conditions.
