Step aboard the Nimbus 305 Coupé via virtual tour.
The 305 embodies sturdy, smart functionality in an attractive design with elegant lines, made for families, bons vivants and inveterate seafarers alike. This model's greatest innovation can be found below deck with a number of improvements and smart functional solutions to maximize comfort on board.
The biggest news is the boat’s hull, which has been developed and optimized for speeds from 0 to 22 knots. It is made for smaller engines (Volvo Penta D3), Torqeedo fully Electrical and built to run comfortably irrespective of speed. The hydro-dynamic shape of the hull means that the boat has no planing threshold at all.
The most important attribute on the 305 is the hull, which has been developed and optimized for speeds from 0 to 22 knots. The hull is designed to suit smaller engines such as the Volvo Penta D3 and the fully-electric Torqeedo, and built to run comfortably irrespective of speed. The hydro-dynamic shape of the hull means that the boat has no planing threshold at all.
“At Nimbus our belief is that a boat should run comfortably at the speeds at which it is used. We know that Coupé owners are fond of cruising at speeds
between 4 and 20 knots, which avoids producing a large wake and burning a lot of fuel. For the 305 Coupé we have designed a hull that rides comfortably throughout the entire speed range. In practice, the 305 has no real planing threshold and returns low fuel consumption at all speeds. Speed can be adjusted to weather conditions, which provides better safety, comfort and the best possible ride from which to appreciate your natural surroundings,” said Mats Jacobsson, product development manager at Nimbus.
The “Sidewalk Design” is an asymmetrical deck layout where the side deck along the starboard side is extra wide, providing safe and generous freedom of movement.
Based on the same Scandinavian design philosophy as her popular and award-winning sisters, the 405 and 365 Coupé, the 305 Coupé will mark a new entry into Nimbus’ popular Coupé series featuring the “sidewalk” concept.
The “Sidewalk Design” is an asymmetrical deck layout where the side deck along the starboard side is extra wide, providing safe and generous freedom of movement. It makes moving about the boat from bow to stern much more convenient and enjoyable, as well as easy to get on and off the boat along the entire starboard side.
The Sidewalk also allows for maximum use of the interior volume, allowing the cockpit, salon, lower deck and cabin to be larger than would otherwise be the case in a boat of this size. An important feature of the Nimbus sidewalk design concept is the large flush fitted sliding door to starboard. The sliding door provides quick access when docking alongside and enables maneuvering the boat from a standing position on the side deck.
The helm has been maximized to provide the greatest possible customization and can be equipped with accessories according to individual requirements. Glued windows with a large, curved windscreen provide a great panoramic view. The salon features large flat surfaces and is both light, airy and cozy, thanks to the choice of materials and LED-lighting. The large glass roof and roof hatches provide a flood of natural light in the salon. A dinette provides plenty of room for four people to share a meal, but also converts easily into a double berth. The dining table can also fold down into a cocktail table with glass holders, making the salon a perfect place for socializing. The galley is well-equipped with ceramic gas heated glass hob with integrated ventilation, Corian top, 65-liter refrigerator and extra refrigerator/freezer box below the sofa on option.
Textiles have been carefully selected. Not only shall these be pleasantly attractive but also withstand sun, salt water and hard wear. As option textiles are from Sunbrella and renowned for withstanding hard climates and UV rays without colours and performance being affected. The cushion covers are machine washable, this being a demand among our customers.

The interior of the 305 embodies wonderful quality and atmosphere, particularly in regard to space and light.
