It all began in 1968 when the first five Nimbus boats were built by a boat-building team that had no notion they were creating Scandinavia’s leading boat building company and one of the leading brand names on the market. A Nimbus boat seamlessly combines beautiful design, comfort, quality and safety at sea; values that every owner requires for themselves and for their families.
Nimbus build boats that exceed the requirements of the discerning yachtsman who appreciates smart functionality, comfort, safety and Scandinavian design. Properties Nimbus considers essential whether you go for a quick drive, a social weekend or a long international cruise.
A core value of Nimbus is to carefully consider every ingredient put into the boat, from design, production method, selection of materials and craftsmanship to delivery, service and accessibility. Irrespective of size or model, every part or function in their boats has been developed to satisfy your needs and to create the right ambience aboard. Form, function and materials seamlessly combine to fulfil a clear purpose where the proportions of the boat, functionality and sea keeping abilities are in harmony.
Simple, elegant, comfortable…
Nimbus excels in using stylistically pure Scandinavian design focused on simplicity of usage and clever, functional solutions. The Nimbus 305 Drophead is an open day cruiser and built on the same platform as the award winning 305 Coupé.
Utilising their extremely popular Sidewalk Design, Nimbus’ designers have made moving around the boat and the fore deck both easy and safe.
The hull is designed for a comfortable ride at speeds from 0 to 22 knots. This hull has no distinct planing threshold and runs with a good fuel economy at all speeds. Speed can be adapted to sea conditions, and this results in a feeling of security, increased comfort and the best possible way to experience the surrounding scenery.
The Nimbus 305 Drophead has two inviting cabins; the “owners cabin” and a side cabin, sharing the head and shower. The four-seat dining table converts easily into a spare double berth. The front sofa to port can also be turned so that two people can travel facing forwards.
Mahogany fittings create a beautiful contrast with the lacquered surfaces and provide a warm atmosphere throughout. Textiles are in spin-dyed acrylic, a material that is hardwearing, withstands salt and sun without fading, and is also soft to the touch.
All materials have been carefully selected to provide a tasteful and relaxing atmosphere while being as hardwearing and maintenance-free as possible. All that is needed is to raise the hood cover when you leave the boat overnight which can be done simply with the touch of a button.
