The Nimbus 305 Coupé is tested off the Needles

VIDEO: Nimbus 305 Coupé review

The Nimbus 305 Coupé, the smallest Coupé model yet, aims to deliver the Nimbus philosophy for under £200,000

The Nimbus 305 Coupé puts an end to the recent accusation that Nimbus’ boats are just too expensive.

This 30ft, single diesel-powered, twin cabin wheelhouse cruiser, bestowed with all of the high quality and practical boat building detail that we expect from Nimbus, comes in at just under £200,000.

The test boat had the largest 220hp Volvo Penta D3, which made for smooth progress and a top speed of just over 20 knots. The semi-displacement hull, with a small keel section, makes slow speed tracking easy and also cuts through the chop with minimum fuss.

The real beauty of the Nimbus 305 Coupé, though, is its year-round usability and the fact that you can simply shut the doors, turn the key and go, even in the depths of winter.
