Yacht and Boat – Boat of the Week II


Nimbus 380 Coupe – Boat of The Week

Brief Introduction

The Yacht and Boat team had the pleasure a few years back of enjoying some time aboard a Nimbus 42. Sydney Harbour proved to be the perfect place to test the Nimbus – See our original review here – https://www.yachtandboat.com.au/news/nimbus-nova-42-review In brief we found that the Nimbus 42 was superbly constructed, easy to manage and was the perfect boat to explore Sydney Harbour and to also entertain guests who constantly arriving once they discovered the Nimbus was moored close by!

When David Mason-Cox of Sunshine Boat Sales listed a Nimbus 380 Coupe with a stunning blue hull we had to find out more.

David informs us that this boat is in beautiful condition with only 170 hours showing on the twin Volvo 260HP D4 Diesels.
