When the designers of 'NIMROD were approached by her original owner, he required a high sailing performance cruising yacht - with the best possible sailing speeds under a wide range of conditions - with a focus on light air performance. The hull lines were also designed for easy motion at sea by integrating a fine entry bow to prevent unnecessary motion. The NIMROD transom is powerful and wide without being excessive which keeps the boat well balanced under all sailing conditions. The hull lines are modern without going to extremes so the yacht has a traditional 'yacht' feel to her. Her deck layout was designed for easy handling for a small cruising crew and the main winches are all mounted within reach of the helmsman.
NIMROD has a hull, deck and super-structure constructed from modern performance composite materials. Her Divinycell foam core has been skinned with E glass Kevlar and carbon fibres for maximum impact resistance and stiffness. She also boasts the extra feature of watertight bulkheads which have been positioned at both the bow and her stern for extra safety and strength, which in turn make her well suited to charter duties.
In her second ownership, she underwent a serious nautical makeover at HYS in the UK. All her systems were either replaced or rebuilt as you can see from the list below. She is now in very full cruising trim and is ready for world cruising. She offers space, volume and rewarding sailing. She has been zero houred and will offer her new owners total reliability and much enjoyment.
Located at Lymington, UK, NIMROD is currently for sale VAT paid.
