Zhik moves to new home in Malta at RLR Yachting
“After 8 years representing Zhik in Malta, Zach Zammit is passing the baton on to RLR Yachting. From this week RLR will be the main Zhik stockist in Malta and will be presenting a wide range of Zhik products for both dinghy and big boat sailors in the RLR chandlery in Gzira.
“This is a really exciting development” says Thomas Ripard, RLR Yachting’s Sales Manager, “we recognise the great work that Zach has done as an independent seller to establish Zhik in Malta and we are looking forward to continuing to work closely with him as we start to stock the Zhik range in store at RLR. Together we can offer the sailing community in Malta a reliable source of Zhik’s world class sailing gear.”
Zach Zammit said “I have been passionate about Zhik for many years and I’m delighted to help RLR Yachting grow the brand presence in Malta over the coming seasons. Zhik’s innovation has pushed it to become a leader in the market and fits perfectly in the atmosphere found at RLR. I can’t wait to see what the future holds for Zhik in Malta!”
To celebrate the transition RLR Yachting and Zhik are sponsoring the Double Handed Figure of Eight Race, hosted by the Royal Malta Yacht Club which takes place this Saturday 4th December.
