PAE expands global sales team with new Nordhavn Russia office

by Nordhavn 20 Jul 13:05 PDT

Pacific Asian Enterprises, Inc. (PAE) is pleased to announce it has joined forces with Alciona Yachting LLC in Moscow, which will serve as its new agents in the Eastern Europe/Central Asian market. Alciona will operate as Nordhavn Russia servicing clients in Russia as well as other ex-USSR countries including Ukraine, Kazakhstan, Azerbaijan, and Latvia.

Bolstered by success and commitment thanks to decades of experience, Alciona has established itself as a premier yacht management and brokerage house for clients in the Eastern European and Central Asian region. With the addition of Nordhavn to its dealership portfolio, Alciona further broadens its representation which also includes Nimbus, Greenline, Dynamiq, and Discovery Yachts.

"We are very excited to join the Nordhavn family and represent such a prominent builder," said Nikita Gorchakov, founder of Alciona Yachting, who will also serve as brand ambassador for Nordhavn Russia.

With growing interest in expedition-style yachts amongst boaters in CIS (Commonwealth of Independent States) nations, PAE wanted to improve the scope of its reach to this sector of clientele. Daniil Slugevich represented a Russian client wanting to build a new Nordhavn 68 last year.

"Working with Nikita the past year on the sale of N6843 has been a very positive experience," said PAE President Dan Streech. "We have great confidence that the Alciona group will open doors into a new rich market for Nordhavn Yachts."

Gorchakov and Slugevich aim to help the Nordhavn name gain traction in what has traditionally been an untapped market for the brand by making sales and marketing materials more accessible. Their first course of action will be translating portions of into Russian and providing Russian-language captions to corporate videos.

While Alciona will act with a specific regional focus as Nordhavn Russia, the company has a global reach with a second office in London that manages European deals. Alciona's multi-lingual agents will also help Nordhavn's other offices with language barriers that might exist with international clients.

Nordhavn Russia can be reached at or by calling +7 495 77 11 700.
