This week, Pacific Asian Enterprises (PAE) officially opened its new Northwest Sales and Service office in Anacortes, WA. The new location will serve as the brand’s top client service resource in the cruising-rich Pacific Northwest region. Catering to both current and prospective Nordhavn owners, the brand new office is located in Cap Sante Marina, a long-established go-to berthing option for cruisers in Washington state. With Anacortes being a gateway port to Alaska and Canada-Pacific cruising, the office will serve as an ideal jumping off point for northern destinations or a sojourn for those making the return trip down the coast.
The newly-launched Nordhavn Yachts NW will be managed by longtime salesperson Devin Zwick, who has spent the past three years establishing the brand’s presence in Anacortes. Joining Zwick is Tom Gilbert, a yacht broker and marine industry veteran who spent 15 years running Cap Sante Yachts, as well as Julie McKee, an experienced yacht sales admin who will serve as NNW’s office manager.
By putting down stakes in Anacortes, the company aims to aid buyers with their yacht shopping research experience, primarily by increasing their exposure to Nordhavns. “With the number of Nordhavns in this area, our team will be able to more easily accommodate buyers looking to inspect different models in our line-up,” said Zwick.
For the past 18 years, Nordhavn Yachts Northwest had been based on Seattle’s Lake Union. NNW will continue to maintain a presence in Seattle with broker Mark Gilbert representing Nordhavn there. Outgoing sales manager Don Kohlmann will relocate to southern California and work out of PAE/Nordhavn headquarters in Dana Point.
Nordhavn Yachts Northwest will continue its stellar partnership with nearby Harmon Marine, which operates as Nordhavn’s preferred service provider in the area. Harmon began its relationship with Nordhavn over a decade ago at its original location in Dana Point, CA, and has developed into one of the premier Nordhavn maintenance specialists.
A grand opening event will take place Saturday, June 25.

Nordhavn’s worldwide sales and service locations can be found in Dana Point, CA; North Palm Beach, FL; Anacortes, WA; East Greenwich, RI; Southampton, UK; Gocek, Turkey; and Brisbane, AUS.
