Norrtälje-based aluminium boat builder ALUKIN is merging with Nimbus Boats in order to increase access for boat buyers nationwide. Nimbus thereby increases its brand portfolio with an aluminium boat brand as a complement to the company’s existing range of products.
“For Nimbus, this is an important step in our product expansion through which we can offer a new and
complementary segment, with leisure craft and working boats in aluminium via our reseller network” says
Jan-Erik Lindström, CEO of Nimbus Boats Sweden AB
Alukin has experienced not only continued strong demand for all-welded aluminium boats in the domestic
market but also an increasing demand across Europe.
This feels like a perfect fit. We can identify with Nimbus and their history as one of Sweden’s premier boat builders. We see great advantages in allying ourselves with Nimbus and their well-established reseller network. In concrete terms, this means that we can make it easier for boat buyers to see and test drive Alukin’s boats at more locations, as well as pave the way for exports.
We share a passion for boats but also for technology, production, construction and design, something that bodes well for the future
owner of Alukin

Initially, Nimbus’ resellers will focus on selling Alukin’s leisure craft. For the time being, Alukin will continue
to sell their Work series directly from Norrtälje, as well as deal with B2B/corporate and public-sector
The new organisation will see Maria Nikula take over as CEO for Alukin with continued brand responsibility.
Previous CEO Peter Nikula will now be able to focus fully on the role of head of production for Alukin
“This constellation will provide us with the opportunity to focus further on developing the company and our
boats, as I shall be increasingly concentrating on production, construction, design and product
development,” concludes Peter Nikula.
