Z Marine North America LLC, formerly Zodiac Recreational of North America LLC, announced that its California-based dealer, Inflatable Boat Specialists, is moving into a larger facility with more inventory to accommodate increased demand in the West Coast market.

“IBS has been a very successful dealer for us for years and this new location only enhances our presence in this market,” Z Marine vice president of sales Gary Durnan said in a statement.

The new location, a 15,000-square-foot facility, is at 2900 Golf Course Drive in Ventura, Calif. The inventory will include many of the Z Marine RIBs, such as the Pro 750 and 850, the Pro Open 650, the Rec Pro 650, the Bayrunner 420, the Cadet 310 and Zooms. Much of the inventory will be at significantly reduced costs to the consumer.

A grand opening, including live music and free food, will be held 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. on June 1.
