A good example of the popular Nimbus 2600 built in Sweden she has a GRP hull and superstructure, a semi displacement hull form with single shaft diesel and skeg keel. Eureka has a Teak interior fit out and is great option for anybody looking for a comfortable cruiser with a good range and low air draft which, of course, help in making her a really versatile craft. The current owners have crossed the Channel in her and cruised the French canals as well. She has been in their ownership for over 20 year and is part one registered.
The boat is in need of some TLC in terms of a good clean and polish but is a solid boat with very good navigational equipment fitted. Currently ashore and had new antifouling and anodes ready for the next owner to launch and enjoy - so a good time to visit her and have her surveyed if you are interested!
Eureka is a good honest, value for money choice and is only for sale due to ill health.
The owner has just renewed the Sea Start policy on the boat and this is valid until June 2021.
We have many more photos available on request - this boat, with a little TLC, is not one to pass by.
Videos of the boat are available at youtu.be/2_M7uJoBWWk and youtube.com/watch?v=c5p2luhEtJw
