Nordhavn Yachts For Sale
Nordhavn is owned by Pacific Asian Enterprises (PAE), a company formed in 1976 to import and market the Transpac 49, CT yachts, and Mason sailing yachts from Taiwan. In 1989 the company introduced their first trawler design, the Nordhavn 46. Just as a backlog of orders was beginning to develop, in 1991 the industry was hit with the 10% luxury tax. PAE did not sell a single new boat to an American during this period. Building on their reputation for quality construction, the company introduced the Nordhavn 62 in 1995, and in 1997 the Nordhavn 50 was was unveiled—both to excellent reviews. Recent years have seen the Nordhavn brand evolve as one of the premier producers of quality diplacement trawlers, many with ocean-crossing capability. Resale values on used Nordhavn models have been consistently strong in all boating markets.
