Pacific Asian Enterprises, Inc., the builder of Nordhavn Yachts, is celebrating its 40 anniversary in business with an event and Nordhavn Rendezvous the weekend of April 27-29 at its headquarters in Dana Point, Calif.

As part of the anniversary celebration, PAE is partnering with the Ocean Institute, a non-profit dedicated to ocean conservancy and marine education. All proceeds collected from multiple raffles will go to the institute.

“Four decades ago, a trio of 20-somethings with a love for cruising-style boats, came together to form Pacific Asian Enterprises, a company that would have a historical impact on the world of ocean-crossing sail and power boats,” said PAE Marketing Director Jennifer Stern in a statement. “Today, PAE is stronger and more influential than ever thanks to the continually groundbreaking Nordhavn brand and the accomplishments of the Nordhavn owners. It is with extreme pride and gratification that we are able to commemorate this milestone.”

In addition to lectures and events that will be taking place during the weekend, PAE will feature a vendors exhibit.
