    Why charter with Zim?

    Getting a race ready boat to a big regatta is a logistical nightmare. All you want to do is focus on sailing your best and winning the regatta. Zim charter boats come standard with all the proper race gear used by the top sailors, so you can do just that. We feel that if you charter a top notch boat for a regatta, you should not have to deal with the hassle of bringing parts and rigging from your own boat to make it race ready.

    Although it is not always feasible, we make every effort to have the boats off the trailer and masts stepped before our charter customers arrive. Your boat will be available the day before the regatta and will be checked back in after racing on the last day of the event.

    Zim charter boats are available at many of the biggest regattas in North America. If you don't see the event listed that doesn't mean we won't be there. Additionally, Zim boats can be made available upon request at local regattas throughout Rhode Island and New England. Give us a call at 401-237-6117 for more details, or send an email to charters@zimsailing.com.
