Zim Sailing announced that its product line of Optimist, C420 and CFJ will expand to include the Byte CII dinghy.
“This is a very exciting time for Zim Sailing,” said company president Steve Perry, who recently acquired the Byte CII from PS2000 and will serve as the exclusive builder and distributor for the CII. “The CII is a perfect fit to the Zim line. It provides a great transition from the Optimist into a great single-handed boat.”
Zim will be distributing the boat throughout the United States, Canada, Mexico, Bermuda and the Caribbean.
“Zim would like to extend a very special thanks to [creator] Ian [Bruce] for his immense support while transitioning the build operation from Canada to Rhode Island. Ian has done a tremendous job with the Byte CII and has laid a great foundation for growth,” Perry added.
