Connecticut-based Dwyer Aluminum Mast Company, a manufacturer of sailboat spars, rigging, blocks, extrusions and hardware, has sold its assets to Zim Sailing.

The new company — Dwyer Mast and Rigging — will be relocated to Bristol, R.I.

“We are excited about taking on the Dwyer brand and product lines and continuing to serve the small sailboat market,” said president Steve Perry in a statement.

Dwyer Aluminum Mast Company has been in business in Branford, Conn., since 1963 and the company builds equipment for sailboats between nine and 35 feet.

Dwyer products can be found on boats from Com-Pac Yachts, Precision Marine, American Sail, Marshall & Stur-Dee Cat boats, Catalina, Dyer Dhow, O’Day, Rhodes, Club 420s and Flying Juniors.
