Nimble by Nature: Agility and Comfort Aboard the Nimbus W9

Nimble by Nature: Agility and Comfort Aboard the Nimbus W9

By HMY Contributor   July 20, 2023

Swedish boat maker Nimbus has long been hailed for their detail-oriented approach to quality, comfort, and safety. Each vessel they unveil is a masterclass in Scandinavian design and unparalleled performance, delivering premium comfort and quality in a range of models designed to accommodate all boating endeavors. And the Nimbus Weekender (W) 9 is no exception. 

Built for boating enthusiasts with an adventurous side, this 30-foot day boat easily extends into a weekend cruiser. The W9 also offers the same stability and many of the streamlined features seen on other Nimbus models, including an iconic stepped hull coupled with a sharp bow for outstanding seaworthiness. Whether you’d prefer a social setting where comfort and class converge, or you’re a thrill seeker craving a bit more speed than what a larger vessel might offer, this award-winning powerboat has something for everyone. 

Sturdy and Spry 

Aboard the W9, you’ll find distinctive Nimbus elements that have been borrowed from some of the brand’s most successful models. The interior layout is similar to that of the 26 Epoca and 32 Ballista, featuring a straightforward cabin with a separate head, while the expansive fore deck similar to that of the Max II makes boarding a breeze. 

What sets the W9 apart is how Nimbus empowers you to tap into an extra dose of adrenaline. While there’s no skimping on the safety, security, and elegant simplicity we’ve come to love from the boat maker, we get a new twist on these classic features in a high-speed day cruiser that will exceed 40 knots with ease. 

Pairing the sharper bow with the celebrated Nimbus hull design has given the W9 immaculate handling capabilities. Both those captaining the vessel and passengers alike will be pleased with its minimal spray — you’ll stay comfortably dry even while cruising at considerable speeds. With multiple engine options, you also get to decide exactly how fast that will be. Choose among the Mercury Verado V8 with 250 HP, V8s with 300 HP, or V10 with 350 HP for the greatest cruising capabilities.


Fully Equipped for Weekend Trips 

In spite of her agility, the W9 still maintains the sturdy, award-winning Sidewalk design exclusive to Nimbus. With generous space to move about the boat and foredeck, you’ll enjoy a sense of ease and a high degree of mobility on board. A large window screen offers protection within the cockpit, while the fully equipped outdoor seating space can be modified to support your favorite outdoor activities with minimal effort. The sizable L-shaped sofa converts to a sunbed and is accompanied by a foldable coffee table, while the bow is also home to its own sizable sundeck. Within the galley, you’ll find everything you need to enjoy dining during a weekend getaway, including a 65-liter refrigerator and a gas or electric hob. 

Below deck, a double bed in the fore cabin with a separate head will sleep up to two, while the large sofa in the cockpit can also be converted to a double bed in the evening for accommodations of up to four in total.
