Scandinavian design is generally understood to be an environmentally conscious, holistic view in which functionality is central. Proportion, form, function, and materials in combination should fulfill a clear purpose; to ensure that the comfort, safety, and sea keeping abilities of every boat are as good as they can possibly be when used in their natural element.
Nimbus builds four distinct lines of boats: Nimbus cruisers, Nova day cruisers, the new 9 Meter series – that could be described as trailerable expedition-style boats – and the Paragon line that was developed with, and is being used for, search and rescue and coast guard duties in several countries.
Each of the lines have hull forms that have been developed for specific uses, each optimized to perform best in the speed ranges that will typically be useful for that application, whether that is a long distance cruise (Nimbus), a summer weekend run to a favorite harbor (Nova), an adventure vacation to Lake Superior (9 Meter), or just getting home in stormy weather, knowing that you are on a boat that was designed and built to operate in the harshest conditions (Paragon).
It should be said that Nimbus has a 51 year history of building some of the most highly regarded boats in the world. All Nimbus boats are tested and certified by Det Norske Veritas, which has certified marine vessels since 1864 and has some of the most rigorous certification processes used today.
Efficiency and the environment are not afterthoughts in Scandinavia; each of the Nimbus lines are designed to be highly fuel efficient and impart minimal impact on the environment. Even Nimbus's state of the art factories have received environmental awards in a country that is one of the most environmentally conscious in the world.
