Pacific Asian Enterprises adds to sales team

Pacific Asian Enterprises, builder of the Nordhavn line of long-range cruising yachts, said it added Southern California native Devin Zwick to its sales team.

Zwick will be based at the company’s Southwest sales office in Dana Point, Calif.

He has spent the majority of the last 12 years working in the marine industry and brings a wealth of world experience and technical skills to his new position selling Nordhavns, the company said.

As a teen, Zwick worked as a deckhand on sportfishing boats before studying for an associate’s 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, including the east and west coasts of the United States, the Bahamas, the Caribbean, Central America and the Mediterranean.

Zwick subsequently founded Delta Yacht Management, where he oversaw the budget and crews of the boats he formerly worked on. At the same time, he was introduced to Nordhavn as captain of an N55, which led to more jobs delivering 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 and Tobago, Brazil and Uruguay.

“I’ve helped a wide range of boat owners enjoy their vessels, which I have come to love over the past six years,” Zwick said. “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.”
