Broker Comments

The Nimbus 380 Coupe is the perfect boat for extended cruising, both at sea and inland waterways. Ideal for families with two large separate cabins including a full-sized queen bed in the master and a convertible double berth in the saloon. The heads compartment has a separate full-height shower cubicle and electric WC. The saloon offers light and bright accommodation with panoramic views and large sliding overhead roof lights. The generous teak-laid cockpit makes for an ideal entertaining space and can be sheltered from the elements by a full enclosure. This particular example comes with a bow thruster and the larger Volvo D4 300hp diesel engines with circa 800 hours, V-drive gearboxes and EVC.
