2002 Nimbus Nova

Groton Long Point, Connecticut

$199,000

This heavily enjoyed lightly used Nimbus 33 Nova desinged and built in Sweden sits at her dock only seasonally. She has been very well cared for by her original owner who is meticulous about keeping her in LIKE-NEW condition. She purrs like a kitten with her twin Volvo Penta diesel engines, commands attention and turns head much like the Chris Craft weekenders and Hinckley picnic boats.
