Share

From the cute «Peppy Longstocking» to the mysterious «Girl with the Dragon Tattoo», from the legendary ABBA band to the iconic Roxette and Ace of Base, from the reliable Saab and Volvo to the fast-paced Koenigsegg, from the communicative Ericsson to the ubiquitous Skype, Sweden has always been able to surprise itself by being surprised by our stereotypes of the Swedish wall, buffet and family.

It has something to be proud of: in almost any business, any niche market there is a Swedish brand of world-class, and often even a few. Nimbus - the special pride of the Swedes.

Company history Nimbus started in 1968. Actually, it started with a boat called the Nimbus, which was created to help the company... Volvo Penta to solve problems with engine marketing. Pelle Petterson's Nimbus boat was so successful and in demand that a new shipbuilding company was born. Nimbus Boatsnamed after the lucky firstborn. The name Nimbus aboard the boat soon became synonymous with beauty, seaworthiness and high quality.

More than 80% of the Swedish home market is owned by this company.
Today's Nimbus Group is one of the five largest yacht producers in Europe (by production and sales). It has 3 shipyards and 4 brands: Nimbus, Storebro, Paragon Yachts и Ryds. Despite the crisis, the company remains profitable and has a stable financial position, producing more than 1,500 «small» boats Ryds (up to 23 feet) and about 350 hulls of «senior» brands of the group (from 25 to 50 feet) during the year.
These Scandinavian boats have a stylish but discreet design, high functionality, excellent layout and well thought out space organization. The hulls, produced by the modern vacuum infusion method, are notable for their durability and reliability. The quality of finish is above all praise.
The yachts are . Nimbus are built under the supervision of the classification society. Det Norske Veritas (DNV), and this is unique for boats of this size, as DNV specializes in certification of megayachts and large commercial vessels. Boats are not cheap, but really worth the money. Their equipment is very different from that of other shipyards. The bow thruster, navigational instruments, teak deck, stern anchor, etc. are already included as standard equipment. Characteristically, these boats are practically not cheaper on the secondary market.
I think it would be superfluous to say that boats and motor yachts... Nimbus are well suited to Russian conditions - the Swedes know the price of comfort in the changing weather of short summers.
In the new season. Nimbus has prepared several different models of boats and yachts. Some of them we present to our readers.
The flagship of the sports series R is the Nimbus 300R.
The boat is designed for people who prefer active recreation. The hull with two transverse edanas, rapid profile, wide bathing platform and a spacious cockpit with a cozy semicircular sofa. In the cabin, trimmed with wood, a large bed for two. Thanks to the spacious cockpit 8 people can enjoy the speed and rest here. The 370 hp Volvo Penta D6 diesel engine easily accelerates the boat to 39 knots, consuming fuel efficiently and economically.
Paragon 31 is also called an S.U.V. because of its original appearance and driving characteristics.

A unique boat for comfortable navigation in the harshest conditions. The patented marine hull is designed together with the Swedish Coast Guard and Rescue Services and is designed for the harshest marine conditions. The rubberized welder allows the boat to moor without cranes to any berths, while the strong pillars all around the boat protect the crew. The cabin is spacious with a height of 1.9 m, 4 beds and a comfortable bathroom. The interior design is stylish and functional, one word is «Nordic».

Cruiser Nimbus 34 Nova - the newest model introduced in autumn 2011.


Being essentially a classic boat of the brand, it combines the most modern technical developments and has a number of extraordinary functions and solutions. Easy to operate, fast and navigable, it will be of interest to both the youth company and the family with children. The spacious cockpit and large bathing platform are well suited for entertainment and outdoor activities. Inside there is a spacious salon with two laconic and elegant cabins, five berths. 34 Nova is available in open or hardtop version, with one or two Volvo Penta diesel engines.


Nimbus 43 Nova - senior model in the «cruiser»range.


Combining the highest level of comfort, safety and attractive design, the boat has received the widest recognition. Regardless of the drive, be it shafts or loudspeakers, it can be equipped with a large bathing platform with hydraulic immersion system (which easily accommodates a small tender or aqua bike). Once again, thanks to the sliding doors and the deckhouse roof, this motor yacht can be easily «opened» for rest in good weather. Inside there are three cabins and two bathrooms with shower. Some innovations are not immediately noticeable, so successfully and unobtrusively they fit into the interiors. Almost perfect boat in its size, one of the most popular and widely used models Nimbus.


Flybridge yacht. Storebro 435

Flybridge yachts of the Nimbus Group are produced at the yard. Storebro. Her slogan is «Yacht for true connoisseurs», so their appearance combines restraint, style, classic and power. The Storebro 435 is available in two versions: Suntop and Commander. The only difference is that the first has no flybridge. The salon and three spacious cabins are finished in classic style: specially selected mahogany and light textiles. The universal layout of the cabins and cockpit will provide excellent comfort for relaxation with family or numerous guests. At low engine speeds, the yacht slides almost silently over the water. У Storebro 435 a surprisingly small amount of sediment, only one meter. This is achieved by placing shafts and screws in the half-tunnels of the hull.

Without changing traditions and easily recognizable style, the «Nimbus Group» creates diverse, reliable, comfortable and modern boats and yachts. Boats that do not become obsolete after many years.
