    Beautifully presented example of the very popular Nimbus 305 Coupé with only 115 hours used by her first and only owner. Only used during the summer months in the Finnish archipelago and stored over winter in a heated facility.


    With just one owner since new in 2018, this stunning 2018 Nimbus 305 Coupe is presented in ‘as new’ condition. She has been used very lightly during summer months only with only 115 hours on her Volvo Penta D2 220hp engine. She presents a very attractive alternative to a new build with a great saving on list price and no wait for delivery.

    Her specification highlights include:-
    • Coupe configuration with opening sun hatches
    • Volvo Penta D3 220 hp diesel engine with very low hours
    • Bowthruster
    • Electric anchor windlass
    • Eberspacher D4 diesel heating
    • Electric heads with holding tank
    • Recent Simrad chart plotter with radar scanner


    Sturdy, smart functionality in an attractive design and with elegant lines for families, bons vivants and inveterate seafarers. Apart from a number of improvements and smart functional solutions, it’s below deck that the greatest innovation is to be found. The biggest news is the boat’s hull, which has been developed and optimised for speeds from 0 to 22 knots. It is made for smaller engines (Volvo Penta D3), Torqeedo fully Electrical and built to run equally comfortably irrespective of speed. The hydro-dynamic shape of the hull means that the boat has no planing threshold at all.

    The biggest news is the boat’s hull, which has been developed and optimised for speeds from 0 to 22 knots. It is made for smaller engines (Volvo Penta D3), Torqeedo fully Electrical and built to run equally comfortably irrespective of speed. The hydro-dynamic shape of the hull means that the boat has no planing threshold at all.

    ”At Nimbus our concern is that a boat should run comfortably at the speeds at which it is used. We know that Coupé owners are fond of cruising at speeds from 4 to 20 knots, when normally boats produce large wake burn a lot of fuel. For the 305 Coupé we have designed a hull that rides comfortably throughout the entire speed range. In practice, the 305 has no real planing threshold and returns low fuel consumption at all speeds. Speed can be adjusted to weather conditions, which provides better safety, comfort and the best possible ride from which to appreciate your natural surroundings,” said Mats Jacobsson, product development manager at Nimbus.


    Nimbus started in the 1960s when Volvo Penta was having problems finding a market for its engines. They needed a dedicated recreational boat, so the then President of Volvo Penta commissioned designer Pelle Peterson - a legend in yachting circles - to design the 'perfect boat' for the job.

    The result was the Nimbus 26. The next year the Nimbus 26 won the Boat of the Year in Sweden, and the company has since gone on to become one of the biggest pleasure boat builders in Scandinavia.

    Nimbus Boats Sweden AB manufacturer leisure boats primarily for the North European market. They build all their boats in Sweden, primarily at their boat yard in Mariestad.
