Versatility and Modernity: Meet the Highly Adaptable Nimbus T9
Boasting exquisite Scandinavian craftsmanship, the Nimbus Tender 9 spans just over 30 feet and delivers an array of features designed to suit a broad range of boating needs. Marked by the detail-oriented design, quality, and comfort that has characterized Nimbus vessels since their founding in 1968, the Tender series is an updated interpretation of their award-winning Nova line which took the yachting world by storm in the 1990s. Here’s a closer look into the walk-around day boat that checks all the boxes.
The T9 has a double berth for two people and is the first of the manufacturer’s three models built with the same nine-meter hull; Nimbus also includes its Commuter and Weekender options in the lineup. With an eight-person capacity, the T9 has been crafted with recreational boating in mind. It reaches a top speed of 40 knots and has an air lubricated stepped hull, open cockpit, and a 250-hp Mercury outboard engine. However, there is the ability to upgrade if desired, with a wide range of engines to choose from.
Cockpit layouts include a straight sofa for more open space — an option that may be preferred by those seeking to optimize functionality, such as skippers or anglers — or a U-shaped design with added seating for socializing. The teak table is foldable and can be kept in a dedicated in-deck storage spot. Rounding out the T9’s core features are its extended aft swim platforms, custom-built refrigerator, aft deck shower, and spacious interior storage. Both seasoned and new boat owners will also take comfort in the fact that Nimbus is well-known for its unwavering commitment to the utmost safety standards, including certification from DNV, one of the most esteemed marine certification agencies across the globe.
A Wealth of Options to Consider
The T9 is about as multifaceted as it gets in boating. Whether you’re a watersports enthusiast seeking your latest thrill or you prefer sipping cocktails under the sun (or both), this vessel offers near-endless options to make it truly your own. It also has features available to support sportfishing, or to simply serve as a commuter boat to transport supplies to larger yachts.
For instance, you can choose between single or twin Mercury outboard engines, add on a wet bar with a hand basin and a portable grill behind the helm seat, and outfit the helm with single or twin chart plotters. There are also three canopy options available: harbor cover, spray hood, or T-top.
Other upgrades include Mercury joystick steering, underwater LED lights, rod holders, a water ski pylon, and a foredeck sunshade, among others. The foredeck has a large loading hatch with access to the cabin and an optional daybed, which can also be used for extended seating with a table. With so many possibilities, the boat can adapt to virtually any use with ease.
