The flybridge has been constructed to harmonize fully with the design of the new coupé series. The roof has light, sweeping lines and incorporates a folding mast. A large, fixed skylight makes the salon very light and airy despite the superstructure.
The flybridge features several cleverly functional and social spaces.
‘We have put an extraordinary amount of work into layout and design in order to ensure an optimal flybridge. Not only to create a beautiful boat, but also to provide multifunctional social spaces with the right ambience,’ said Joacim Gustafsson, head designer at Nimbus.
The flybridge includes a wet bar, with sink, grill and fridge, sun bed, large sofa and a twin helm seat. The twin seat can be turned 180 degrees and thus form a roomy social seating area in combination with the sofa. If desired, the sofa can be easily converted into an additional sun bed.
All functions on the flybridge have been designed to allow the boat to pass beneath bridges after a few simple adjustments. Thanks to the “sidewalk” deck layout, walking space is maximized on the starboard side, making it very easy to get on and off the boat and to spend time on deck, while allowing generous space in the cockpit and cabin.
The Nimbus Coupé series has been built since 1969 and more than four thousand of these boats have been sold worldwide. The 405 Flybridge is built in Mariestad, Sweden at the Nimbus boatyard.
“Sidewalk” is an asymmetrical deck layout where the side deck along the starboard side is extra wide and provides generous freedom of movement. It becomes convenient and enjoyable to move about on-board from bow to stern, and easy to get on and off the boat along the entire starboard side.
Maximum use is made of the interior volume, allowing the cockpit, salon, lower deck and cabin to be larger than would otherwise be the case in a boat of this size. An important feature of the Nimbus sidewalk concept is the large flush fitted sliding door to starboard.
The sliding door provides quick access when laying alongside and enables maneuvering the boat from a standing position on the side deck. The sidewalk concept also allows the use of the aft deck for various activities. And on the foredeck the extra space is used to integrate a large sun deck as a natural feature of the boat’s design.
