ZipwakeDynamic Trim Control Systems Offer Affordable and Efficient Vessel Control

New Bedford, Mass. – IMTRA, the leading manufacturer and importer of quality marine products, announced today that it is now the exclusive distributor for Zipwake Dynamic Trim Control Systems in the U.S. and Canada. Under the terms of the relationship agreement, IMTRA is responsible for increasing awareness of the Swedish manufacturer’s latest developments in trim control solutions while driving North American sales.

“By leveraging the respective strengths of both organizations, IMTRA and Zipwake will offer an outstanding new product set to the recreational and commercial boat markets,” said Chip Farnham, vice president of sales, IMTRA. “Zipwake’s innovative and competitive solutions for the well-known trim problems of planing and semi-planing boats attracted us to work with them as they fit in well with our existing portfolio. We are excited to offer these high-quality products to North American boat owners and operators who choose comfort and enjoy performance.”

“We are very proud to have reached this agreement,” said Lorentz Simonson, CEO, Zipwake. “With IMTRA as our agent in North America we are confident they will be able to provide effective market penetration and unparalleled customer support. We look forward to a lasting and rewarding partnership.”

Featuring advanced, intuitive 3D controls, Zipwake Dynamic Trim Control Systems deliver a more comfortable ride, better performance and improved fuel consumption for any boat from 20 to 60 feet, regardless of the type of vessel or the sea conditions. Offering unmatched control of running trim, heel or heading, the system incorporates patented, durable fast-acting interceptors that provide efficient lift. Installation of the modular unit is simple with four different size blades allowing a near full beam arrangement. The key innovation of the Zipwake interceptor design is each blade extends just 30 mm – exactly where it is needed. Other trim tabs often project 150 mm into the water and create substantial drag. Zipwake’s design allows for full blade deployment in 1.5 seconds – five times faster than conventional trim tabs and much more efficiently. Each kit includes all the parts needed to install a Dynamic Trim Control System with one pair of fast-acting straight interceptors. Additional interceptors can be purchased and added depending on the shape of the hull. A base installation allows a total of six interceptors without the need for additional connectors or power supply.
