Made in Sweden
Swedish yard Nimbus has launched the new W9 day cruiser boat at Boot Dusseldorf boat show.
The W9 is a high-speed day cruiser and weekend boat for social activities, offering overnight accommodation for four people. The W9 can be equipped with an inboard or outboard engine and is the first boat in an entirely new series of eight models.
“We have carefully selected some of the highlights from our best-selling boats, carefully refining the design and developing new functionality in order to make life as easy and comfortable as possible for everyone on board. The W9 has inherited a great deal of its design language and elements from our older, iconic models,” explains Joacim Gustavsson, Chief Designer at Nimbus.
The W9’s hull is long, with a sharp bow section and a relatively flat hull at the stern. The Nimbus development team has purposely made every effort to maintain a low center of gravity and to obtain a beneficial length to width ratio that causes the boat to take a certain wavelength and cover the ocean safely. The new hull makes the W9 fast, with a maximum speed of +40 knots. Power is provided by a single Mercury Verado outboard engine delivering 300 hp.
The W9 is the first model in an entirely new series. The new Nimbus series will be available in three hull lengths: 8, 9 and 11 metres. The series consists of three different models for specific areas of use. The Weekender (W9, W11) for day, weekend trips and social activities, the Tender (T8, T9, T11) for all types of day-to-day activities, transportation, water sports and leisure, and the Commuter (C8, C9, C11) for year-round transportation.
