Nimbus 42


Made in Sweden, this twin DIESEL SHAFT DRIVE family cruiser is a truly impressive boat!  She’ll easily cruise at 25kts and run at top speeds over 30kts on a hull design that’s excellent both inshore and offshore plus easily handled by a solo operator.  With the twin opening helm doors and bow thruster this family cruiser will make your days all the more relaxing as you can manage berthing, anchoring or collecting moorings with ease and without having to pass back through the main cockpit and disturb the guests.

The Nimbus brand is built to a high standard and is considered the Riviera of Sweden. Nimbus is now gaining traction in Australia with many new models being sold and delivered here and we have personally tested and reviewed them for Dan’s Boat Life YouTube channel.


The layout consists of three cabins below with a master island bed forward that has it’s own head and separate shower. The twin guest cabins are midships and feature a large Queen bed to starboard and a double bed in the port cabin. These guest cabins are serviced by a second head which also operated as a day head with it’s own shower. The entire accommodation below is air conditioned and receives it’s power from the genset or shore power depending on your location.


The helm is amazing with twin sliding access doors on port and starboard plus two opening sun roofs. The L-shaped saloon lounge can pivot to face forward allowing for two people to face forward and enjoy the ride. When you’re in social mode the port seat pivots back to L-shaped lounge mode and creates the inside dining area directly opposite the galley. This area has great connectivity with the aft cockpit via two sliding doors that concertina to starboard to allow excellent connectivity with the aft deck lounging area. The aft deck has two lounge seats that can be extended plus a removable full sized dining table that can sit atop the bar tables creating a lunch table for 6.


Engine access to the Volvo Diesels and V-drive is via dual deck hatches and aft of this you find a generous storage lazarette. With BBQ and dinghy storage on the transom plus built-in fender holders this Nimbus 402 Nova will be at home both lunching at anchor on a Saturday arvo or cruising North to the Whitsundays in winter, the choice is yours!
