Zipwake Boat Trim Control System: How Do Interceptors Work?

Florida Sportsman Managing Editor Steve Dougherty joins Jamie Simmons, Product Manager for Imtra, to discuss the innovative Zipwake Boat Trim Control System during the 2023 Miami International Boat Show. Zipwake is the world's first economical trim control system, incorporating a state-of-the-art series of durable and fast-acting interceptors that eliminates the well-known trim problems of planing and semi-planing boats between 20-100 feet. The system is fully automatic and significantly enhances performance, fuel economy, comfort and safety when accelerating, turning or running in a seaway. The Zipwake system has two available series: Series S, a product family designed for boats under 50 feet that includes four straight, four V-shaped, four chine and one intermediate interceptor and the Series E, a family of large, fast-acting interceptors that includes four straight, three tunnel and four chine models that are designed for boats up to 100 feet.
