Improve-it = Nimbus 27 Nova S

Nimbus presents the E-power version for the 27 Nova S developed in collaboration with Electroengine AB, a company that develops solutions for electrical power in different kinds of vehicle, including private cars. The E-power 27 Nova S is a standard production boat, neither deck nor hull have been specially prepared or lightened in any way. In other words, the electric-powered engine we have installed has been given a really tough job. The power unit and the battery cells come from Electroengine. The transmission is a DPH duoprop drive from Volvo. This boat has a cruising speed of approximately 23 knots and a top speed of 27 knots. At cruising speed the boat has a range of 20 nautical miles. Nimbus says it will be able to present versions with longer range when the boat is launched onto the market. The craft is charged from a standard 230V power point. Charging takes 28 hours. When using a standard 3-phase 400V power point, full charging takes approximately four hours. A battery gauge replaces the fuel one to monitor the battery level. But just in case the power does run out, we have fitted a small diesel generator to get you home. The diesel generator runs at optimum speed to reduce emissions. The 27 Nova S E-power version will be built at the yards in Mariestad, Sweden. Nimbus hopes to move the E-power technology in its other boat brands as Ryds and Paragon in the very near future.
