Nimbus 345 fitted with two large sliding hatches in the saloon deck head, side opening windows in the main saloon make the Nimbus 345 a very versatile cruising motor yacht. The white GRP hull is constructed of a sandwich making for a strong and light hull with excellent thermal insulation. The interior layout has an owners double forward with a second spacious mid cabin under the saloon. The ergonomics flow and with many years of yacht building behind them, the layout is very well conceived, works well at sea and when you are at anchor or berthed in the marina.
The Nimbus 35 semi displacement hull gives a solid and smooth ride with no vices and is happy in a Solent chop at speed or simply trolling along at displacement speed. The hull design is very capable and cross channel work is very easy and even when it cuts up rough, the sea keeping provides a secure and comfortable ride.
The Nimbus 345 “Simba” has been well cared for with regular annual maintenance. She has just had a hull polish, new antifouling and is always subject to the required engine servicing. Viewing is recommended and we believe she is well priced in the market with relatively low engine hours and well equipped.
