The first five Nimbus were built

Back when it all began when the first five Nimbus 26’s were built. By a boat-building team that had no inkling they were creating Scandinavia’s leading boat building company and one of the leading brand names on the market.

“Björn Borg, a swedish tennis legend”

The Nimbus 800 Turbo, launched in the 1980s, was an obvious choice for world-famous tennis player Björn Borg. The joint marketing campaign was a big success. Björn signed a tennis racket for Nimbus as a gesture of thanks for such a fine craft. The racket was framed and is well preserved even today.

The norwegian convoy

Customers travelled to the Nimbus head office in Långedrag and then sailed their new Nimbus’ home in convoy. A voyage that took three days to cover the 475 nautical miles to Bergen. The convoys started in 1984 and remained a tradition for 15 years.

From Nimbus to Ferrari

Nimbus caught the eye of famous Italian designer Nuccio Bertone in 1998. The result was a very special and limited edition of the Nimbus 26 DC. The 26 DC Epoca has become one of the most beautiful and sought after boats in the history of Nimbus.

A gift worthy a king

The Swedish King celebrated his 50th birthday on the 30th of April 1996. Members of the royal clubs of Sweden had taken a collection to buy the King a present; a Nimbus 19 Nova fitted with an Evinrude 115hp outboard.
