The Nimbus 3000 is a respected Swedish motor cruiser and is, as you would expect, well built and very well designed.

Like many Scandinavian designs, the use of space is excellent - the wheelhouse contains the galley and a good size seating/dining area. The saloon area has ample storage and seating with access to the port side double berth cabin and the heads.

The aft cabin is accessed from the wheelhouse providing a well designed cabin with a double berth, plenty of storage and a vanity unit.

As you can see from the photos and the details, this particular Nimbus 3000 is a nice example and looks to have been well maintained making this a much sought-after motor cruiser, both for coastal use as well as inland waterways. She could also be ideal as a stylish but cosy liveaboard for a couple.
