A day cruiser for socialising

A new kind of day cruiser suitable for comfortable weekend and day trips. The boat is built on the new Smart Speed concept to create maximum comfort for all aboard at all speeds. Design and function are optimised for social activities and entertaining aboard. Nimbus 305 Drophead is an open day cruiser and built on the same platform as the award winning 305 Coupé. This means stylistically pure Scandinavian design focused on simplicity of usage and clever functional solutions.

Smart speed concept

Smart Speed features a hull designed for comfortable ride at speeds from 0 to 22 knots. The hull has no distinct planing threshold and runs with good fuel economy at all speeds. Speed can be adapted to sea conditions, and this means higher safety, better comfort and the best possible way to experience the surrounding scenery. As it’s sister, the 305 Coupé, the boat can be fitted with electric engine from Torqeedo.

Scandinavian design

The 305 Drophead virtually breathes Scandinavian design and materials have been selected with care. The interior of the boat exudes sheer quality and feels spacious and airy. The boat is fitted with integrated ventilation and opening port lights for generous light intake. Bulkhead covers in light coloured materials reduce noise. Mahogany fittings create a beautiful contrast with the lacquered surfaces and provide a warm atmosphere. Lighting is cleverly designed for both comfort and efficiency. The boat has two very comfortable cabins; the “owners cabin” and a side cabin, sharing the head and shower.

All Nimbus models are equipped with a specially designed “ready-to-cruise” package. It contains all the extra equipment you need to start cruising and enjoy your boat from day one.

Attractive and hardwearing textiles

Textiles are in spin-dyed acrylic, a material that is not only hardwearing and withstands salt and sun without fading, is also soft and comfortable to sit on. The colours of the upholstery are light blue and beige. The colour scheme and contemporary patterns of the cushions enhance the furnishings. Interior in varnished Mahogany with textiles in light Scandinavian beige or Marine classic blue with Sunbrella light blue technical fabric as option. All light in LED and with several points of curtesy lights.

Textiles have been carefully selected. Not only shall these be pleasantly attractive but also withstand sun, salt water and hard wear. As option textiles are from Sunbrella and renowned for withstanding hard climates and UV rays without colours and performance being affected. The cushion covers are machine washable.

Weatherproof, smart and simplicity

Using, owning and looking after a Nimbus should be simple and easy. Simplicity can sometimes be mistaken for less comfortable and less well built, but for us it means the opposite.

Everyone aboard is to feel safe and comfortable in the knowledge that the required functionality is integrated where it should be and that it really does work.
One example is the powered canvas hood cover, which folds down into an integrated cassette in the window frame at the touch of a button – simple and elegant. When in place, the canvas roof shelters the entire cockpit, that is to say the helm, the wet bar and the dining area.

The four-seat dining table converts easily into a spare double berth. The front sofa to port can be turned so two people can travel facing front. The cockpit and aft deck fit seamlessly due to a wonderful choice of materials and the large 6-seater U-sofa aft – perfect on sunny days for those coming along for the trip.
The cockpit features a fully equipped, glass-fibre wet bar with 65-litre fridge. The boat feels especially large owing to the integrated bathing platform, after-deck and cockpit being built on the same level. The spacious socialising areas make this boat perfect for entertaining friends.
Cockpit and aft deck materials are carefully selected to provide an elegant and comfortable atmosphere while being as hardwearing and maintenance-free as possible. All that is needed is to raise the hood cover when you leave the boat over-night.
