Very nice condition Nimbus, she has recently been ashore for her annual maintenance all clean and anti-fouled with a gloriously polished hull. Her hull is dark blue with white superstructure; teak capped side decks, cockpit and stern platform. I really liked the control fitted to the cockpit for the thruster. For her size she provides very good accommodation for six people and the navigator double seat folds back to increase the table seating.
She is a safe and easily manoeuvred motor boat. Her handling at sea is both predictable and comfortable. The helm is responsive while the bow and stern thrusters make for easy stress-free berthing in the marina. She will move sideways if necessary! For most of her life she has been cruised on the South Coast of England and has made several cross-Channel passages. Two people can manage her with ease.
The accommodation lends itself readily to entertaining. The layout is versatile and the spacious saloon has easy access to the cockpit and the fore cabin. The cockpit has fittings for the main saloon table and is a delightfully sheltered area when at anchor. Families and couples alike will find her to be a very homely and rewarding craft. Storage space is generous and access to machinery is good.
She is a good looking boat with a clear nautical pedigree.
