Nimbus 305 Drophead set for spring launch
Motorboat & Yachting: The Swedish boatyard Nimbus has revealed details of its first model in a new range, new Nimbus 305 Drophead day cruiser, which promises a comfortable ride at all speeds.
Nimbus explains that the new model is to provide a comfortable ride at all speeds up to 22 knots with no perceivable planning threshold. Powertrain options are the same as the 305 Coupé – single Volvo Penta D3 engines or the Torqeedo Deep Blue electric alternative. The first models are due to roll off the production line in March 2016.
“We are turning to those looking for a wonderful and comfortable boat trip with focus on socialising and where speed is not the most important factor.” said Joacim Gustavsson, head designer at Nimbus.
The interior styling is a typically Scandinavian flavour with Mahogany woodwork and lacquered surfaces. Some of the key features include two double cabins below decks, a single-level main deck, wide side decks for ease of crewing, and a powered canvas hood cover.
