we strive to build the perfect boat for the conscious customer who enjoys social activities comfortable living easy handling and excellent long distance cruising properties.

Side-walk design concept

“Side-walk” is an asymmetrical deck layout where the side deck along the starboard side is extra wide and provides generous freedom of movement. It becomes convenient and enjoyable to move about on-board from bow to stern and easy to get on and off the boat along the entire starboard side. Maximum use is made of the interior volume, allowing the cockpit, saloon, lower deck and cabin to be larger than would otherwise be the case in a boat of this size. A feature of the Nimbus side-walk concept is the large flush fitted sliding door to starboard. The sliding door provides quick access when laying alongside and enables manoeuvring the boat from a standing position on the side deck.

Seating for four to five facing front. Divided into two seats at the helm and two-three seats the reversible passenger sofa
Polyurethane glued windows in the superstructure and a large wrap around windscreen provide a very contemporary look, exceptional stability and a quiet saloon.
Generously sized and comfortable aft deck with an extra-large, L-shaped sofa. The electrically powered folding table converts into a sunbed.
Helm position with twin 12 inch touch screens. Visibility is exemplary owing to uncluttered surfaces (nothing gets in the way), matt finish anti-reflecting materials and integrated folding wipers.
Sidewalk design with large flush fitted sliding door in starboard side.
Panoramic glass roof with integrated sun blinds.
Extra large galley with ceramic gas hob and dark composite worktop, 120 litre capacity fridge plus extra cool storage in pull-out drawers beneath the saloon sofa.
A “granny hatch” that offers great storage and conceals a mains power plug on the stern. The storage compartment can also be accessed from the aft deck.
Integerated sun-bed on foredeck and a large flush mounted skylight that provides natural light for lower deck.

Contemporary look and extremely quiet saloon

The saloon has an open Scandinavian layout with large flat surfaces and is light and airy, roomy and modern, but made cosy at the same time by special lighting, wood fittings and attractive seating and cushion covers.  The beautifully finished joinery in the saloon and cockpit exude a wonderful feeling of handcraft and quality. The large U-sofa seats 6-8. The dining table folds down into a cocktail table with glass holders, making the saloon a handy place for socialising.

Beautiful design and functionality

Panoramic glass roof

Large electric sliding glass roof with integrated sun blinds. When fully opened it provides a airy feeling inside  – it is almost as being outside. And with a touch of a button it offers perfect protection from occaisonal raindrops.

We got engines to meet
our customers high demands.

Fitted with twin Volvo Penta engines with straight shafts and tunnel system. A well proven technology with several advantages. The straighter shaft angle makes for a more efficient power line and thereby lower fuel consumption and more speed. Better course stability at low speeds and shallower draught.
