After having been nominated for the third time since the start of the Best of Boats Awards in 2014, Nimbus finally took home the victory in this year’s Best of Boat Awards 2020. The new Nimbus T8 won in the category “Best for Fun”.
Nimbus T8 is a multifunctional, well equipped and fast day-boat intended for day-to-day activities and water sports, with overnight accommodation for two. The T8 provides stable, safe, and quiet performance, which makes it easy to operate the boat at high speed, even in poor weather conditions. 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. It was a tough competition as boats from more nations than ever had made it to the finals this year. An expert jury of boat journalists from 15 nations selected 21 finalists from 13 countries in five categories amongst international motorboat novelties all over Europe during the very special conditions of this year. The award ceremony was held on the 19 November as a live streamed broadcast event.
“We are very happy that our newest model T8 won this award! The boat combines elements of design, functionality, and DNA from the 230R, 250R and 26 Nova with Nimbus’ current classic style – a functional day tender for those who appreciate genuine Scandinavian design and value well-considered solutions and comfort. The T8 has been extremely successful and we have sold more than 165 boats worldwide since the launch on the BOOT in Duesseldorf in January 2020”, says Jonas Göthberg, Commercial Director of Nimbus.
