The Nimbus W9 is intended for those looking for a wellequipped, somewhat faster day cruiser with obvious Nimbus DNA; a boat for those who value functional Scandinavian design, simplicity, safety, security and attention to details. The W9 is a high-speed day cruiser and weekend boat for social activities, offering overnight accommodation for 4 people. The Nimbus W9 can be equipped with an inboard or outboard engine.
The W9’s hull is long, with a sharp bow section and a relatively flat hull at the stern. The Nimbus development team has purposely made every effort to maintain a low centre of gravity and to obtain a beneficial length to width ratio that causes the boat to take a certain wavelength and cover the ocean safely. The new hull makes the W9 fast, with a maximum speed of +40 knots.
The boat is secure and harmonic at all speeds, especially between 20-35 knots, and also have a minimal planing threshold. Due to its excellent balance, stability and well-defined flair – the boat remains extremely dry without excessive spray, only increases the sense of security.
The Nimbus W9 features the prize-winning Nimbus Sidewalk design. This provides the boat with generous space for its size and also makes it safe to move around the boat and foredeck. Clear walkways around the entire boat increase safety and provide a sense of security both in port and at sea.
The cockpit provides protection for everyone on board with its large window screen. The interior layout and furniture arrangement is specially designed for social activities and entertaining in a variety of situations. One significant asset of the W9 is the unusual ease with which it can change use, for example when it’s time to take a dip after a meal on board.
