Pace Marine Technology is owned by Ken Lanouette, who developed a strong bond with boating and salt water through his family's 1962 Pacemaker 35 Express. He has experienced a lifetime on the ocean in almost every type of powerboat including Runabouts, Sport Boats, Competition Racers, Cruisers, Sportfishermen, Motor Yachts and Trawlers. His deep respect for the ocean is evident in his company's Faithful approach to Marine Service. Pleasure and Safety are equal partners at sea.
He later developed a personal friendship and professional relationship with David P. Martin, Naval Architect, who designed Pacemakers and Ocean Yachts. Privileged insight to the design & construction process and myriad development parameters resulted, giving Pace Marine Technology a clear advantage in diagnosing existing issues and designing workable solutions.
This company is named in honor of the original Pacemaker Yacht Company, owned by the late C.P. Leek and his son and grandson - John and Jack Leek - on the Mullica River in Lower Bank, NJ. For all intents and purposes, Pacemaker later became Ocean Yachts. Located on the same river and with the same designer and owner, Ocean Yachts was for a time the largest manufacturer of Sportfisherman in the world...and also the best!
