Broker's Comments

Great Boats, and rare, as they were rather expensive new compared to the likes of Sealine / Fairline etc, but they do offer a beautful "yacht" kind of finish like all the Nimbus boats. The stiff , light high tech, hull mouldings make them an economical cruising boat to push through the water and add an amount of insulation from cold/heat as well as noise.
