  • Remarks: Nimbus 26 Nova For Sale. "Cassis" is of robust build and high specification. Presented with a navy blue hull and elegant Nimbus waterline stripe, she has a sporty appearance. Her large aft cockpit with teak decking, quality adjustable and removable vinyl seating and a teak dining table gives her a feeling of space and luxury. As a dayboat, ideal for coastal port-hopping or exploring the river, she has a comfortable two-berth cabin, galley area and decent-sized head compartment. Attention has been paid to detail in every aspect of the design of this boat.

    This particular example has been doted on in her current ownership and dry stacked under cover and presents very well indeed. Serviced, polished, antifouled and new anodes (2020) with a comprehensive service history and set of manuals, she must be the nicest 26 Nova that we have listed. Will not disappoint any viewing.
