Almost five decades of experience in building sail and power yachts in Asia is limited to very few companies, and TRANSPACIFIC MARINE CO. LTD. is one of these few companies. Forty seven years ago, Nancy and Ennals Ives, Transpac's founders, began living in Taiwan, while building 38' and 40', wooden sailboats.

Sailing their own boats in California, prior to living in Taiwan, prepared Nancy and Ennals, to understand the necessity of high quality and strong, safe methods of construction needed in ocean going yachts. Their experience in sail and powerboat cruising and construction, and knowing how yachts will perform in various weather conditions, has contributed to the success of Transpac yachts.

Early in the life of Transpac, the Ives recognized the necessity to involve a local partner. Consequently the current President, prominent Taiwan business woman, Mary Chou, joined the company. After Ennals' passing in 2006, Nancy has retired a year after that, she is still involved as a consultant.

In the 1990s, Transpac moved its building operation to the Eastern China city, of Ningbo, where they continue production of the Eagle Motoryachts.

Parts and equipment for Eagles are purchased in the U.S., Taiwan and in China. U.S. Coast Guard Standards are followed in fitting out the yacht, including the engine wiring and fuel systems. All systems are thoroughly tested at sea before shipment.

The Transpac staff has excellent communication skills in English, Chinese and Italian, ensuring that each buyer's request is accurately explained to the workforce. Limited production enables Transpac to pay attention to the small details, as well as to the overall construction and outfitting of the entire boat.

The standard Eagle layouts continue to be popular with our customers, however, if you wish to customize your boat, we can help. The plans for the Eagle Yachts are fully computerized and our Italian Naval Engineer will use advanced computer technology to help you to achieve your ideal layout.
