Broker's Comments

When it comes to cruising the Scandinavians certainly know how to make great boats. This seems to have so much more than other 27 footers. Because the galley is located in the centre cockpit, but still protected from the elements by the hardtop, the saloon is simple and spacious, the "captains" single berth looks comfortable, and the aft cabin must be such a bonus.
The single diesel, provides all the power for half the servicing costs of its twin cousins.
This Nimbus presents really well.
