• Building Your Boat


    Quality and consistency are the top priorities in our production approach. Small boat construction is an entirely hand-built process performed by skilled craftsmen. Zim boats are built in a controlled environment with carefully measured amounts of material to ensure compliance with strict one-design standards of weight and durability. Production tooling for all of our boats are built from a master set of plugs and continually maintained to ensure the consistency of the final product.

    Every Zim boat undergoes a comprehensive quality check during final assembly at our shop in Bristol, Rhode Island. Tanks and ports are pressure checked for leaks, the hull and deck finish is carefully inspected, and key structural components are checked. Our habitual attention to detail is evident in the final product.
