Dwyer Aluminum Mast Company, a manufacturer of high-quality sailboat spars, rigging, blocks, extrusions, and hardware out of Branford, CT, has sold their assets to the owner of Zim Sailing. The new company is Dwyer Mast and Rigging and will be relocated to Bristol, RI.

Dwyer Aluminum Mast Company has been in business in Branford, CT since 1963. The new owner will build on this legacy by maintaining and exceeding the previous owner’s 55-year reputation for providing industry leading products and excellence in customer service. Dwyer is well known for spars built for a vast range of sailboats between 9 and 35 feet, including Com-Pac Yachts, Precision Marine, American Sail, Marshall and Stur-Dee, Catalina, Dyer Dhow, O’Day, Rhodes, Club 420s, FJs, and many others.

“We are excited about taking on the Dwyer brand and product lines and continuing to serve the small sailboat market,” said Zim Sailing president Steve Perry. “It will be a large task to learn and transfer all the skills of so many years of experience to the new team, as well as re-energizing and modernizing the business in Bristol, RI, a town with a rich boat building and marine trades tradition.” For further information, contact Dwyer Mast and Rigging at 203-484-0419 or sail@dwyermast.com, or visit dwyermast.com.
