Brokers Comments

This Nimbus3003 is a great boat that was well ahead of its time in terms of design and features. With its hard top enclosed wheelhouse & canvass back, this boat can be used all year round. On a cold or wet day, you just slip your lines and away you go and on a warm sunny day, roll up the rear cover, open the sunroof and its like being in an open boat. It has 5 comfortable berths including a large aft double cabin with separate access from the cockpit (ideal for the kids), a huge “U” shaped seating area in the cockpit set around a table & a well equipped galley with oven, hob & fridge that is very conveniently also in the cockpit. She is powered by a single Volvo Penta TAMD41 diesel engine giving 200hp & has many other features including a Bow Thruster & Trim Tabs to create a comfortable ride and easier handling, a Raymarine C120 Plotter with Radar & Eberspacher Cabin Heating for those cooler days.

This Nimbus 3003 is in good condition for its age and has clearly been well maintained and upgraded by her various Owners. If you are looking for a spacious, hard top Diesel Cruiser, then this boat is definitely worth viewing. It is currently lying afloat in Southampton.
