Nordhavn appoints Eastern Mediterranean sales agent

Pacific Asian Enterprises, builder of the Nordhavn line of long-range cruising yachts, has named Emek Marin of Gocek, Turkey, as the Eastern Mediterranean agent for Nordhavn.

Emek Marin will market the Nordhavn brand under the name Nordhavn Eastern Mediterranean, or NEM.

Emek Marin is a longtime figure in the Mediterranean boating industry. It was established in 1950 as a marine engine builder and distributor. The company followed the path of marine service and product distribution and later added yacht sales and service. It represents Amel sailboats.

Riza Cakir, sales and marketing manager, has followed Nordhavns for years and has serviced numerous Nordhavn customers cruising the Eastern Mediterranean. Cakir, the grandson of Emek’s founder, believes the trawler brand is a perfect fit with the Amel trademark.

“The quality, philosophy, company support and Nordhavn owner participation and passion are in line with the type of product excellence Emek Marin is known for,” Cakir said in a statement.

With the addition of Emek Marin in Turkey, PAE has increased its sales representation to seven locations worldwide, including offices in Dana Point, Calif.; Seattle; Portsmouth, R.I.; Stuart, Fla.; Southampton, U.K.; and Brisbane, Australia.
