All price's shown are INCLUDING VAT & a extensive standard specification. Weekender 9 is intended for those looking for a well-equipped, somewhat faster day cruiser with obvious Nimbus DNA; a boat for those who value functional Scandinavian design, simplicity, safety, security and attention to details.
The W9’s hull is long, with a sharp bow section and a relatively flat hull at the stern. The Nimbus development team has purposely made every effort to maintain a low centre of gravity and to obtain a beneficial length to width ratio that causes the boat to take a certain wavelength and cover the ocean safely. The new hull makes the W9 fast, with a maximum speed of +40 knots.
“Our aim was to ensure that the boat was secure and harmonic at all speeds, especially between 20-35 knots, and also have a minimal planing threshold. Those who have test driven the W9 up to now have experienced precisely that. The fact that – due to its excellent balance, stability and well-defined flair – the boat remains extremely dry without excessive spray, only increases the sense of security. It certainly feels as if we’ve succeeded,” says Mats Jacobsson, Technical Director at Nimbus.
“We realise the importance of meeting the needs of a larger target group by offering boats with great flexibility for various areas of use, based on a single platform. As things look today, these needs vary from long, year-round transportation in northern Norway to short, speedy day trips in the Mediterranean, and everything in between. We are also aware that engine requirements vary depending on the intended use. This is why the customer themselves can decide between a diesel or petrol inboard engine or an outboard engine,” explains Jonas Göthberg, Commercial Director at Nimbus.
The W9 features the prize-winning Nimbus Sidewalk design. This provides the boat with generous space for its size and also makes it safe to move around the boat and foredeck. Clear walkways around the entire boat increase safety and provide a sense of security both in port and at sea.
The bow design is new and is the result of a desire to draw out the water line as far as possible to achieve the desired cruising characteristics. The bow angle facilitates an integrated front anchor winch and reduces the risk of collision when docking on rocks.
The cockpit provides protection for everyone on board with its large window screen. The interior layout and furniture arrangement is specially designed for social activities and entertaining in a variety of situations. One significant asset of the W9 is the unusual ease with which it can change use, for example when it’s time to take a dip after a meal on board.
“It can often be complicated to change from one activity to another, requiring lifting, clearing away, screwing and unscrewing components and removing or putting out cushions. On board the W9, only a few simple actions are required to change the boat’s function from a dining area to sunbathing and swimming activities,” says Joacim Gustavsson.
