Pacific Asian Enterprises, builder of Nordhavn yachts, obtained a new location in Dana Point, Calif., for its headquarters that will put sales, project management, engineering, accounting, commissioning and shipping/receiving under one roof.

On March 22, after months of negotiations and discussions, the Orange County Board of Supervisors ratified the 30-year lease with Pacific Asian Enterprises for  the nearly 9,000-square-foot building that a local restaurant vacated in January 2010.

Staff at the company's Dana Point operations is in 6,700 square feet of space split among five locations; unifying the departments in one space has been a long-term goal of Pacific Asian Enterprises ownership.

"Communications and efficiency will vastly improve by having the entire company together," president and owner Dan Streech said in a statement. "And this will lead to a better customer experience for visiting clients."

Pacific Asian Enterprises plans to move into its new headquarters at the end of this year after spending about six months converting it to a state-of-the-art office.

One part of the Beach House restaurant that will remain, however, is a 6-foot section of the bar and several of the oak tables and chairs. It's where the other two-thirds of Pacific Asian Enterprises' ownership team, Jim and Jeff Leishman, sat one evening almost 25 years ago, hashing out over a couple of beers the concept of a long-range motoryacht.

The result was the Nordhavn 46 design.
