The new Swedish built Nimbus 405 Coupé is the largest boat in the Nimbus Coupé Series, which includes the 335 Coupé and 365 Coupé.

Nimbus will be one of hundreds of exhibitors launching products at the 45th annual Boot Dusseldorf, which runs 18 to 26 January at the Dusseldorf Exhibition Centre.

The 405 Coupé is built using the same 'sidewalk' concept as the award winning 365 Coupé and which was voted 'European Power Boat of the Year 2012'. Sidewalk is an asymmetrical deck layout where the side deck along the starboard side is extra wide and provides generous freedom of movement.

'It has become apparent that our coupé boats are not just for the older generation who prioritise functionality and comfort, but also for families and for younger people who want both fun and to voyage securely and safely,' said Jonas Göthberg, marketing manager, Nimbus.

The boat has many similarities to her smaller sisters but offers several new features, these include twin touch screens at the helm, room for five to ride facing front, a new D-pillar with integrated ventilation, wholly glazed aft deck door, electric powered table on the aft deck and a 'granny hatch' that conceals a mains power plug on the stern.


The saloon has an open Scandinavian layout with large flat surfaces and is light and airy, roomy and modern.

'We would never build a boat that is not considered practical in her natural element, although we always try to make her as beautiful as possible,' said Joacim Gustavsson, head designer at Nimbus Boats Sweden AB.

'It is a balancing act. It is always easier to design beautiful lines if you don’t need to take functionality into account. Our customers are very conscious and they appreciate our designs because they understand that we build crafts that are actually used at sea and not only look good in pictures or at boat shows. That is the secret of our success.'

The 405 Coupé is a modern, solid and functional boat perfect for an uncomplicated and enjoyable life at sea and causing a minimum of environmental impact. The 405 is built in Sweden at the Nimbus yards in Mariestad. The world premiere will be held in Düsseldorf on the 18th of January 2014.
