Zim Sailing Enters as New Competition in the Small One-Design Sailboat Market

WARREN, RI – June 3, 2009 – Zim Sailing emerges as the country’s third independent full-service small one-design sailboat manufacturer, specializing in production of Optimist and Club 420 dinghies. Unique from its competitors, Zim’s focus is to provide the best value for the customer with an emphasis on supporting the development of grassroots youth sailing.

“For many youth sailors and their parents, the lack of quality and affordability in the small one-design sailboat market has served as the most significant factor decreasing participation in the sport,” said Steve Perry, Founder and President of Zim Sailing.

Perry, an operations veteran with mass production experience, brings over 20 years of boatbuilding experience to his new role. Perry, a Canadian native, previously served as Vice President of Operations at Vanguard Sailboats and began his career building Tornado catamarans at Sailcraft of Canada.

“We’re excited to share our commitment to provide the highest quality products to the small sailboat market at the best value for the end consumer,” said Perry. “Our goal is to deliver unparalleled competitive advantage to youth sailors by providing technological know-how and quality construction at an unmatched price.”
