What Makes HMY the U.S. Nimbus Dealer of Choice?

By HMY Contributor   May 24, 2024

Founded in Sweden in 1968, Nimbus was built upon three core values: functionality, comfort, and safety. And while these qualities certainly appeal to the U.S. yachting community, it took several decades before the brand decided to expand to our shores. Doing so was a big move, after all — one that called for support from the right partner.

Since December of 2022, we’re proud to say HMY has been Nimbus’s U.S. dealer of choice for the East Coast of Florida. As the only dealer for Nimbus in the state of Florida, we’re thrilled with the opportunity to present our clientele with vessels featuring a sensible design and classic Scandinavian features, and the Swedish boat maker fits flawlessly into our exclusive lineup of premier brands. Here, we share a closer look at how this blooming partnership came to be.

A Reputation Built on Relationships

For a global brand like Nimbus to expand into the U.S. market, having the right sales partner was key to building a legacy market. Their leadership team knew that the ability to pursue repeat sales was fundamental to their long-term growth — and they also knew it’s an area in which HMY excels.

That’s because HMY doesn’t simply sell yachts; we forge meaningful relationships with each of our clients, taking the time to understand their visions and goals. Each HMY Sales Professional cherishes the opportunity to pair their clients with the right vessel for their intended adventures, which is in part why we continue to greet familiar faces year after year. 

Being a relationship-based business with repeat customers was a major factor that attracted Nimbus, as they knew we’d help to establish consumer confidence in their boats. Thanks to our strong industry reputation and expertise, HMY was Nimbus’s first choice in establishing a base on the U.S. East Coast.

Embracing Scandinavian Prestige

With exceptional handling, superb functionality, and the versatility of their Weekender, Tender, and Commuter (“WTC”) models meeting the needs of a diverse range of boaters, it’s no surprise that the Nimbus product line has been well-received by HMY customers and the industry as a whole. Though they may have originated in Sweden, these boats offer an exceptional onboard experience that feels specifically designed for cruising in Florida. 

Nimbus Technical Sales Director Lew Davies notes that HMY was a key player in this growth, assisting Nimbus in achieving more than a six-fold increase in sales since becoming a dealer in 2022. Coupled with high-quality products that offer year-round boating capabilities, partners like HMY have helped to position Nimbus as a force in foreign markets, em​​powering them to sustain retail velocity.

HMY & Nimbus: A Partnership with a Promising Future

“Feel the difference.” It’s a simple yet powerful message Nimbus has chosen for their motto, summoning boating enthusiasts to see for themselves what sets their vessels apart. Acting as an extension of the Swedish company, HMY aims to offer more opportunities that give you a taste of what life aboard a Nimbus could look like. From showcasing Nimbus models in our boat show displays, to featuring exclusive glimpses across our social channels, we’re excited to get our audience even more acquainted with these exquisite Scandinavian yachts. As Lew puts it, “The momentum is strong, and we’re just getting started.”
