Broker's Comments

Swedish built with unquestioned quality, the Nimbus Nova 26 is a stylish Walkaround Sports Cruiser.

The combination of luxury deck space and comfortable cabin, wins time and again for practical, all inclusive use -the Nova 26 does this perfectly.

Exceptionally well built, the craftsmanship on this model is hard to miss. Fine teak decks, plush upholstery, teak rod holders, cabin heating, the craft even comes with 'Nimbus' branded cutlery, crockery and glassware, all stored neatly in finely fitted draws.

Powered by a Volvo Penta KAD44, the boat cruises happily at 20+ knots and accelerates in to the high 30's with ease. The engine has been maintained professionally by local outfitters- Dale Sailing, the most recent maintainance includes 4 new batteries fitted (12th June 2023).

Large deck space, comfortable interior, well appointed galley and heads and the ability to tackle a decent sea state with relative ease. All these attributes make this the perfect choice for top end day boating, with optional overnighters if desired.

With navy blue hull, teak pennant and large ensign fluttering, this boat is sure to turn heads on the water.
