New Model: Nimbus 43 Nova

Nimbus presents the new 43 Nova, successor to the successful 42 Nova. The focus for the new flagship of the Sweden boat builder is for a modern design and innovative, functional solutions in combination with a comfortable, low-resistance hull providing performance and excellent manoeuvring ability. This boat was revealed for the first time in Sweden at the LĂ„ngedrag boat show in 2010. The roomy saloon is light and modern but also snug and stylish, with elegant materials in cushions and upholstery setting off the beautiful joinery in saloon and cockpit. The helm and instruments are designed to meet modern demands for high functionality and the surfaces to reduce reflection together with perfectly matched ergonomic design. The remarkable properties of the craft include a number of innovative solutions, including a raised walkway to provide more space in the fore-cabin. Glass roof in the fore-cabin. Lots of stowage space and a layout providing large amounts of space for socializing, suitable for the whole family or for getting together with friends and acquaintances. The generously proportioned fore-cabin holds a luxurious double berth, plenty of drawers, a wardrobe and several conveniently placed stowage lockers and shelves. Two guest cabins, one to starboard the other to port, each fitted with large double berth, seating and good-sized wardrobe. There is a large head with separate shower adjacent to the fore cabin. The cockpit features the galley with its spacious work and serving tops, plenty of drawers, a specially designed wine and glasses cabinet and a practically sized stainless steel fridge. The boat can be boarded from either side via large doors leading directly to the helm and the passenger sofa. Behind the galley, and tucked well out of the way when not in use, is an electrically folding television set. The boat is available with the unique Volvo Penta docking system with joystick control. A very large and hydraulically operated bathing platform is attached to the enormous after deck. In the lowered position the platform lies about 40cm beneath the surface, allowing for the easy loading of a personal water craft. Power is from twin Volvo 370hp engines with line shaft propulsion.
