As for the company name, ZIM stands for Zou Inter Marine. Steve Perry had partnered with the manufacturer in 2008 when the business was started. The short form of the name was popular and most customers received it well. The company however got listed last when it came in the Notice of Race that was put up for charters. Initially the company formed as a distributor, but today it has moved into manufacturing as well.
