Join the Seattle Yachts Florida team at the Portland Boat Show from January 8th through the 12th right at the Portland Expo Center. We will be featuring Nimbus Boats at the show including the Commuter 9 (or C9) which is part of their award-winning WTC series. Seattle Yachts was also recently named the Nimbus Dealer Of The Year at the recent Nimbus dealer meeting, so our team is factory-trained and experts on the product.
If you would like to schedule a time to see our in-stock Nimbus inventory, we have 3 locations on the west coast that represent Nimbus:

“The C9 is a contemporary Commuter vessel designed to make daily life on board as simple and comfortable as possible, irrespective of whether you are travelling alone or with passengers. We have prioritized freedom of movement over interior volume in order to make it as easy as possible to board, move freely around the vessel and disembark. As a starting point for the design process we sought inspiration and DNA from our Max II Coupé and Paragon Series,” explains Joacim Gustavsson, chief designer at Nimbus Boats Sweden AB. The C9 puts this functionality to the forefront by designing extra-wide gangways for moving about the boat, the greatest possible onboard load capacity, and large sliding doors so that more than one person can enter and exit the boat at one time."

At first glance, the Nimbus C9 simply looks like it is what it does best - a boat to move you and your passengers to destinations with a purpose. Always being practical, the designers at Nimbus also opted to give owners the option of using the C9 recreation-ally as well. It is a boat, after all. The overnight accommodations on board can sleep three adults and two children in the spacious fore-cabin as well as the salon which converts to a bed. “It is important to us that we are able to meet the needs and wishes communicated to us by our customers, the people who use their boats to get around on a daily basis. This is why we have created a modern commuter, for those who travel in typical Nordic weather throughout the year. However, it would be remiss not to point out that this remains a leisure craft and should not be compared with models built for professional boat categories,” says Jonas Göthberg, commercial director at Nimbus.
The Nimbus Commuter 9 can reach speeds of over 40 knots, giving you the ability to get to your destination quickly. There are two engine options whether you prefer inboard or outboard power. For more information, contact one of our Seattle Yachts offices on either coast.
The aft deck of the Nimbus 305 Coupe' shares the same level as the swim platform and salon. The interior of the boat is of wonderful quality and atmosphere, particularly in regard to space and light. It has a generously sized, comfortable L-shaped sofa for five people with fold-able seating. In the salon, the dining table folds down into a cocktail table with glass holders and stainless steel handles. Perfect for relaxing or social activities with friends and family!
There is integrated ventilation with five large opening port lights for extra light intake. Upholstered bulkheads in light colors help to reduce noise. The 305 Coupe' has two cabins, an owner’s cabin and a guest cabin, sharing a common head with shower.
In all, this Nimbus model is a contemporary, super-functional boat with reduced environmental impact and which is perfect for an uncomplicated and enjoyable life at sea.
