Dana Point, CA – (April 24, 2015) – Pacific Asian Enterprises, Inc. (PAE) is pleased to announce it has teamed up with Northrop and Johnson Asia, LTD, which will serve as the company’s liaison in the Southeast Asian market. The firm will assist with sales of new and brokerage Nordhavns primarily in Hong Kong, Singapore and Thailand where they currently have offices.

Bolstered by success and commitment, Northrop and Johnson Asia has established itself as one of the premier yacht brokerage and management houses in Southeast Asia. With the addition of Nordhavn to its dealership portfolio, Northrop and Johnson Asia further broadens their representation which also includes Royal Huisman custom super sailing yachts, Solaris sailing yachts and Heliotrope power catamarans.

“We have always been impressed with the branding of Nordhavn and the loyal following they have,” said Bart Kimman, director of Northrop and Johnson Asia. “We are very proud to be part of the Nordhavn team.”

The relationship between PAE and Northrop and Johnson Asia was initiated after the company oversaw the sale of a brokerage Nordhavn 55 in Hong Kong a few years ago; it was further fostered last year when Northrop and Johnson Asia acted as agents for PAE during the delivery of the Nordhavn 120 Aurora.

“They are a prestigious outfit, have a solid track record and have proven to be trustworthy as well as a pleasure to work with during our past dealings with them,” said PAE vice president Jim Leishman. “I look forward to our future joint efforts and growing our business in that region.”

Northrop and Johnson will represent Nordhavns at many of the Asian Boat Shows including Pattaya Boat Show, Pimex, Singapore Yacht Show and the Hong Kong Boat Show.
