Zim Optimist

Optimist

The Zim Club Opti utilizes the same hull as our Z Force Optimist. The spar and blade package make this an affordable and high quality entry-level Optimist dinghy for beginners, yacht clubs, and other learn to sail programs.

The Z Force Opti is the ultimate package for youth racers and comes equipped with the performance rigging and gear you will need to achieve success at every level of competition. The Z Force Opti is available in several colors including: Red, Orange, Light Blue, Dark Blue, White, Gray, and Black. Zim Optimists have won many local, regional and national regattas.
