ANNAPOLIS, Md. – Zodiac of North America, Inc., a manufacturer of inflatable boats and rigid-hull inflatable boats (RIBs), has promoted Gary Durnan from his role as director of Canadian Operations to vice president of the Recreational division for North America, the company reported in a recent statement.
“I’m looking forward to our new consolidated operations that unites U.S. and Canada operations under a single roof. It will help us be more responsive to our dealers and customers on both sides of the border,” Durnan commented. “We’ve got great product coming from the R&D labs, RIB sales are up for the second year in a row, and our inflatable products are better than ever, so this is sizing up to be a dynamic year.”
Durnan explained that Zodiac’s Recreational Division will return to its roots and re-establish a specific yacht-oriented division and will continue to position their RIBs as fuel-efficient alternatives to traditional center console runabouts. Durnan attributes the fuel advantage, as revealed in independent performance tests, to RIBs being inherently lighter in weight.
