Transpac Marine is one of very few companies that can boast a heritage of building boats in Asia going back nearly 50 years. Originally, experienced sailors, a Californian husband and wife team - Nancy and Ennals Ives, had a 38' wooden sailboat built for themselves in Taiwan, but the result was so successful that they ended up building boats for their sailing friends and hence the birth of Transpac Marine. They matched their experience and knowledge of what Western boat buyers wanted in terms of strength, quality, integrity and value, by joining forces with local artisans and the managerial and marine expertise of Mary Chou, who, for many years, has been on the Board of Directors of the Taiwan Yacht Association. Their partnership with Mary has led to the present day success of Transpac as one of Taiwan's most respected, quality boat builders.
Today Transpac boats are sold in Asia, Australia, USA and Europe and construction of wooden sailing boats was succeeded by modern state of the art, trawler yachts, that are still built with the original founders' objectives of strength, quality, integrity and value for money. Ennals' design sketches are now replaced with Italian, Marine Architects' computer originated perspectives, but because of the company's low volume production, each boat can be personalized to an owner's requirements and a very high degree of personal service is the hallmark of the company. Many of the changes made in their boats originate in feedback from customers and many of these customers change from clients to personal friends during and after the buying experience.
Following their target of giving the best value for money, Transpac's range of Eagle yachts are now built in a modern facility in Ningpo on mainland China, where labor rates are now more competitive than Taiwan, resulting is significant savings for the buyer. The hardware that is fitted to Transpac boats, such as engines, electronics, kitchen equipment etc, is sourced from the quality suppliers around the world, in particularly the USA and Europe. This ensures easy, ongoing parts availability, and international warranty on the boat's machinery which compares equally with more expensive, western built boats. All Eagle boats are built to US Coast Guard regulations regarding the installation of the engines and running gear, and the electrics and plumbing, to give you peace of mind when buying from maybe the other side of the world from your location. Plus Transpac has international dealers who help guide you through the fabulous experience of specifying the interior details and layout of your own yacht.
Transpac owners and staff have great communication skills, and between them speak fluent English and Italian as well as, of course, Chinese, to make sure your wishes are accurately interpreted and your boat matches your dreams down to the smallest detail. With email communication making the world so much smaller today, you can get the best of Western design, equipment and materials built in a cost effective, labor situation in Asia and still have daily contact with the building process. You may even want to make a trip to China to inspect your yacht before she is shipped to you. Imagine what an exciting trip that would be!
