Nimbus 365 Coupe

Like its smaller sibling, the 335, Nimbus’s new 365 Coupe features an asymmetric deck, giving priority to the starboard side deck, but still allowing movement around the port side.

A door from the helm leads out to the starboard side deck so the skipper can no longer escape the ropework.

This new 365 has a much lighter look than previous Nimbus models thanks to a large sunroof and deep, frameless window lines.

Mahogany is the wood of choice – so Nimbus traditionalists won’t be disappointed.

Below decks, the forward master cabin houses a proper island double berth, while space has been made in the mid cabin for a useful mini-sofa and decent storage space.

Back at deck-level, a galley sits behind the helm seat, and across the way there’s a U-shaped dinette offering an excellent view.

The 365 is a very comfy cruiser at 18-20 knots, but will push on happily if required.
