Once you go side-door, you’ll never go back – at least that’s what Dave Marsh argues in his video review of the Nimbus 405 Coupé.

Our venerable boat tester is a big fan of this practical Swedish marque and the latest arrival is a case of business as usual, with the side access door playing a vital role.

Dave explains that this has two key benefits: ease of mooring and a smoother flow of people around the boat.

Below decks we also take a look at the clever three-cabin layout, which includes a useful hanging space for drying off your oilskins.

Finally, we examine the storage space around the engine bay and cockpit, which is as comprehensive as you’d expect from a Nimbus.
