PAE celebrates 40 years of businessMar 30, 2018
Dana Point, CA – (March 29, 2018) – Pacific Asian Enterprises, Inc. (PAE) is pleased to announce the celebration of its 40thanniversary as a company. To mark the occasion, PAE will be holding a 40th Anniversary Gala and Nordhavn Rendezvous the weekend of April 27-29 at its world headquarters in Dana Point, CA.
Approximately 175 guests made up of current and new Nordhavn owners, past owners, staff from PAE and its partner factories as well as distinguished guests are expected to attend. We are proud to be able to mark this occasion with the people who have helped shape our company’s identity and success. Delicious food, entertainment, educational seminars and an open house will round out the weekend event.
As part of the celebration, PAE is pleased to partner with our charity, the Ocean Institute, a non-profit dedicated to ocean conservancy and marine education. All proceeds collected from multiple raffles will go to the Ocean Institute.
In addition to the lectures and parties that will be going on, we’re excited to once again feature a Vendors Exhibit. A tremendous success at our last Rendezvous, the Vendors Exhibit gives key vendors -whose products PAE and Nordhavn owners have come to rely on - the chance to discuss what’s new in their product catalog as well as answer customers’ questions.
“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. “Today, PAE is stronger and more influential than ever thanks to the continually groundbreaking Nordhavn brand and the accomplishments of Nordhavn owners. It is with extreme pride and gratification that we are able to commemorate this milestone.”
The 40th Anniversary Gala/Rendezvous will be PAE’s most spectacular event to date.
