Nimbus 405 Coupé
The Swedish built Nimbus 405 Coupé is the largest boat in the Nimbus Coupé Series, which includes the 305 Coupé and 365 Coupé. The 405 Coupé is built using the same “sidewalk” concept as the award winning 365 Coupé and which was voted “European Power Boat of the Year 2012”. It offers 3 cabin + 2 bathroom + large saloon and large front and aft cushions.
The boat has many similarities to her smaller sisters but offers several new features; Nimbus Design Team has added several interesting aesthetic and functionally integrated details. These include twin touch screens at the helm, room for five to ride facing front, a new D-pillar with integrated ventilation, wholly glazed aft deck door, electric powered table on the aft deck and a “granny hatch” that conceals a mains power plug on the stern. Other innovations include newly designed engine room ventilation in the hull sides with powered extractors, galley with ceramic gas hob and dark composite worktop, 120 litre capacity fridge plus extra cool storage in pull-out drawers beneath the saloon sofa and much more.
– “We would never build a boat that is not considered practical in her natural element. Although we always try to make her as beautiful as possible. It is a balancing act. It is always easier to design beautiful lines if you don’t need to take functionality into account. Our customers are very conscious and they appreciate our designs because they understand that we build crafts that are actually used at sea and not only look good in pictures or at boat shows. That is the secret of our success,” said Joacim Gustavsson, head designer at Nimbus Boats Sweden AB.
