Asiamarine has recently delivered the first Nimbus T8 in Hong Kong to its owner. The regional dealer has represented the Swedish boat builder in Hong Kong, Singapore, Thailand and Vietnam since late 2021, and the T8 in Hong Kong was sold to a Swedish client.
Winner of the Sportsboats & Ribs category in the 2021 Motor Boat Awards, the T8 from the Tender series is based on an air-lubricated, stepped hull with excellent seafaring qualities and a low planing threshold. Propulsion options are a Mercury Verado V6 (200hp) or V8 (250hp or 300hp) outboard engine, offering a cruising speed of 20-35 knots and a top speed over 40 knots.
The Hong Kong unit features a T-top with Lexan roof
Joacim Gustavsson, Chief Designer at Nimbus, said: “The T8 provides stable, safe and quiet performance, which makes it easy to operate the boat at high speed. The construction quality and excellent seaworthiness and handling, combined with superior speed resources, invite a more active style of driving that still feels safe and secure.
“This boat is a functional day tender for those who appreciate genuine Scandinavian design and value, well-considered solutions, and comfort.”
The T8 has a length of 26ft 2in (7.93m)
As shown on the Hong Kong unit, the T8 can be fitted with a T-top with Lexan roof that provides sun protection, while an additional canopy can cover the aft deck. In the covered area, the two helm seats are reversible and the table is foldable, while the aft sofa fits both forward-facing and aft-facing passengers and has a flexible back rest that can even fold down to produce a large sunbed.
Under the aft sofa is space for a retractable refrigerator and easily accessible equipment area. The aft deck features a shower outlet and storage compartments on each side.
The pilot seats can reverse to face the foldable table
The T8 features a wide walk-around design and a forward-facing sofa in the bow, which can offer an optional sunbed and conceals a large hatch with loading access to the cabin. The double cabin is accessed by stairs forward of the co-pilot seat to port.
Founded in 1968, Nimbus builds boats from 26-44ft (7.9m-13.3m) across four ranges: Tender (T8, T9, T11), Commuter (C8, C9 and C11), Day Cruisers (Weekender 9, 305 Drophead) and Cruisers (305, 365, 405, 405 Flybridge).
Asiamarine has added Nimbus to its portfolio of brands after the Swedish builder appointed the company as its official dealer across multiple markets in the region.
