Broker's Comments

When you walk up to the Nimbus 280 you immediately get the impression of a well designed sea boat. Ideal for family cruising, exterior lines are clean with safe wide walk-around deck. The feeling of quality extends to the interior with a lovely combination of materials and clever design.
The overall condition is very good, extremely well maintained by the current owner. I am sure you will not be disappointed with this much loved and well cared for family vessel.
The owner has recently completed a 9 week passage, so all the systems have been thoroughly tested, and passed with flying colours!
