Here below you can experience the Nimbus C9 up-close in a virtual tour.

The C9 is the third in the new nine-meter Nimbus series following the latest W9 and T9 models. The C9 is a purpose-built, rapid commuter vessel, constructed to equally meet the needs of year-round commuters, active day-trippers, or those planning longer, staged journeys with overnight stays.

Contemporary Scandinavian design

The Nimbus C9 is a boat for connoisseurs of contemporary Scandinavian design; those who appreciate well-thought-out solutions and smart functionality. The spacious cockpit offers splendid natural light, with a large, sliding glass roof hatch and a modern, snug helm position.

The swiveling cockpit chairs provide ample space for four people to dine or space for five people in total. The cockpit passenger sofa converts easily into an extra bed for two children or one adult. The forward cabin has room for a double berth with separate head and kitchenette.

“Unlike other boats in the commuter category, the C9 offers excellent overnight accommodation, with room for two adults and two children thanks to its spacious forward cabin and convertible salon.” says Joacim Gustavsson.

In place of the glass roof (fitted as standard), the boat can be equipped with an electronically opening canvas canopy, ideal for those wishing to optimize the open-air feeling on warm summer days. The driver’s position has space for two people and can be equipped with single 9″, 12″, or twin 12″ chart plotters. The foredeck features a large loading hatch with access to the cabin as well as an optional daybed which creates an extra seating area that seats 4 people with either a table or extended sunbed. The aft deck houses a wide sofa with ample stowage.

“It is important to us that we are able to meet the needs and wishes communicated to us by our customers, the people who use their boats to get around on a daily basis. This is why we have created a modern commuter, for those who travel in typical Nordic weather throughout the year. However, it would be remiss not to point out that this remains a leisure craft and should not be compared with models built for professional boat categories,” says Jonas Göthberg, commercial director at Nimbus.

Comfortable all year around

“The C9 is a contemporary commuter vessel designed to make daily life onboard as simple and comfortable as possible, irrespective of whether you are travelling alone or with passengers. We have prioritized freedom of movement over interior volume in order to make it as easy as possible to board, move freely around the vessel and disembark. As a starting point for the design process, we sought inspiration and DNA from our Max II Coupé and Paragon Series,” explains Joacim Gustavsson, chief designer at Nimbus Boats Sweden AB.

The Nimbus C9 is a thoughtfully designed vessel that offers appropriate functionality for those seeking a spacious, fast, year-round commuter but who would also like to travel under cover on longer staged journeys or active daytrips.
