Zhik are delighted to announce the appointment of Dismarina as the brand's exclusive distributor for Spain. Established for 25 years, Dismarina set out to represent the best brands of boating equipment, hardware and sail cloth in the Spanish marine sector. The business has grown to become a market leader representing a large portfolio of prestigious marine brands and is now owned by Plastimo.

"We are excited to be working with the Dismarina team, with their extensive knowledge and relationships with Spain's nautical outlets and their connections with the Spanish dinghy sailing world," comments Mat Belcher, Zhik CEO. "We see this partnership as a perfect fit with Zhik's strategy to expand the strength and quality of our distributor network across the globe."

Yann Cornec Plastimo CEO adds, "Since we took on in France in 2020 we have been impressed with the extent of Zhik's continuous product development and innovations, especially working closely with sailors like Yoann Richomme who recently won the Route du Rhum. It is the most natural step for our relationship to extend into Spain with Dismarina and offer Zhik as a premium range alongside our other equipment brands."

Zhik is also working directly with Diego Botin & Florian Trittel, the dynamic Spanish duo who won Gold at the 2022 49er Europeans as their debut event and subsequently took the Silver at the 49er Worlds in Canada. They are actively campaigning for Paris 2024 in the 49er class and are also part of the core team for SailGP Spain.
