The ILCA is the most popular single handed one-design sailboat of all time, and has introduced countless people to the sport of sailing with over 220,000 boats delivered since inception. Zim Sailing continues the tradition of excellence by building ILCAs in the same great facilities that have built our C420s, FJs, 420Es, and Optis for years.

New in 2023 is the introduction of Zim Club, Race, and Pro rigging systems for each rig size. These have been developed to cater to the needs of a broad range of sailors, and allow for upgrading of individual systems or the rigging package as a whole.
