    The 420E from Zim Sailing sets a new standard in enclosed deck technology for high school and college sailing. The airtight foredeck has taken weight out of the bow, increasing performance and safety, without sacrificing the durability Zim Sailing's boats are known for. Institutions such as high schools, colleges, and community sailing programs, demand a unique combination of performance and toughness, and the 420E delivers.  

    420E Construction

    • Toughened resin and plexus bond for superior strength and durability
    • All through-deck mounted hardware is supported by tapped aluminum backing plates
    • Shroud chain plate is a forged eye strap supported with an aluminum back-up bar under the rail
