The Story part 1
The story of Nimbus is really two histories running in parallel
– the history of a fantastic boat and the history of a dynamic
company and the people working there.
In the Sixties, Volvo Penta had problems with the marketing
of their engines. A suitable pleasure boat was needed and
head of Volvo Penta, Harald Wiklund, ordered the perfect
boat from design engineer Pelle Petterson.
Pelle named his drawings “Nimbus”. The first test runs were
made over the waves of Lake Vänern in September 1969…
The Nimbus 26 became “Boat of the Year” in 1970 and has
never looked back since. A very long list of boats have born
the Nimbus name for more than thirty-five years, a name
synonymous with beauty, seaworthiness and the highest quality
– boats to dream about. Click to read more >
