About this Nimbus 30 Nova S

This 2010 Nimbus 30 Nova S benefits from being upgraded to the latest Volvo Penta engine fitted new in 2013 during her ownership by Volvo's Scandinavian Sales Director.

Owners Comments

Unique key points for us -  good heads/shower arrangement for size of boat; up top galley; good weather protection with covers up and good for sunny days with covers back/off; easy launch and recovery of tender via aft cockpit with gate removed; aft cockpit with beanbags is a great place to relax at water level; raised gunwale very safe.

This Nimbus 30 Nova S has been professionally maintained and has new antifoul, new anodes, and polish ready for the 2023 season.

Brokers Comments

We know this Nimbus 30 Nova S well having sold her to her previous owner in conjunction with the Swedish Princess Agent in 2019 and since then to her current owner.

Designed to RCD Design Category B 'Offshore', she benefits from being originally owned by the Volvo sales director for Scandinavia who had a 2013 engine installed where no expense was spared and as you can see from her recent maintenance that trend has continued throughout her life. 

Complete with original Nimbus toolkit.
