Collegiate 420

The Zim Collegiate 420 is designed to meet the challenging demands of colleges, high schools, camps, and other institutional sailing programs. Our Collegiate 420 combines the proven performance capabilities of the Club 420 with added features that enhance the boat’s strength and durability. Some of these features include a heavy-duty rubrail, bow bumper, and recessed centerboard gasket. Although it is the same hull, the Collegiate 420 does not include a spinnaker or trapeze.

Each Collegiate 420 sailboat is custom-built and can include any of these options:

  • Heavy-duty rubrail
  • Aft rubrail filled with Plexus
  • Molded bow bumper
  • Recessed centerboard gaskets
  • Tennis ball style transom bailer
  • Gelcoat bow numbers
  • Custom sail graphics


  • Toughened resin and plexus bond for superior strength and durability
