Nimbus C9, a fast commuter with extra freedom of movement
The C9 is the third in the new nine-metre 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.
Extra space to move around in
The C9 prioritises spaciousness, surfaces and functionality to provide the best possible onboard load capacity and freedom of movement. The result is easily accessible stowage, wide gangways, extra-large sliding doors and passages through which two people can pass in comfort.
“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 prioritised 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.
Modern Scandinavian design
The Nimbus C9 is a boat for connoisseurs of contemporary Scandinavian design; those who appreciate well-though-out solutions and smart functionality. The spacious cockpit offers splendid natural light, with a large, sliding glass roof hatch and a modern, snug driver’s 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 forecabin has room for a double berth with separate WC and kitchenette.
“Unlike other boats in the commuter category, the C9 offers excellent overnight facilities, with room for three adults and two children thanks to its spacious forecabin 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 one large 16” or two smaller 12” plotters. The foredeck houses a large loading hatch with access to the forecabin, as well as a sun divan that creates extra seating for four people complete with table. The aft deck houses a wide sofa with ample stowage. The C9 can be equipped with an outboard or inboard engine.
“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.
Who is the C9 aimed at?
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. It is planned to launch a further two models in the commuter series, one of eight metres and one of eleven.
