IMTRA’s Zipwake Dynamic Trim Control System has been selected as the standard trim control system for new models from several manufacturers including Grady-White, Cruisers, Hatteras, Mag Bay and MJM Yachts.

“As a small family company, we want everyone who comes on board the Mag Bay 33 to have the best experience possible,” said Barrett Howarth, vice president of Mag Bay Yachts, in a statement. “She is a very unique boat and in a class of her own. We use the highest quality components in every aspect of the boat. IMTRA supplies our underwater and overhead lights, windlass gear and Zipwake Trim Control System. Very quick and responsive, the Zipwake system is easy to use and does exactly what you want. We tried out the system and loved it so much we made it standard on all of our boats.”

Added David Clubbs, director of product development at Hatteras/Cabo Yachts, “The Zipwake trim system is a robust and advanced solution for high-performance boats. The CAN bus network with integrated display for a simple, fail-proof installation. During testing we were very pleased with the system’s fast response time, auto trim performance and its extremely intuitive controls, all of which come standard.”

IMTRA says Zipwake Dynamic Trim Control Systems deliver a more comfortable ride, better performance and improved fuel consumption. The system incorporates patented fast-acting interceptors that provide lift. Each interceptor extends 1.18 inches compared to 5.9 inches for conventional trim tabs. Zipwake’s design allows for full blade deployment in 1.5 seconds. Each kit comes two interceptors and all required hardware and additional blades are available.
