Nimbus Boats to Start Production in Florida

Nimbus T8
The Nimbus T8 will be produced in Edgewater, Florida starting in 2024

After acquiring Edgewater Powerboats in Florida in early 2023, Swedish conglomerate Nimbus Group will now bring some of its manufacturing to North America.

The move is part of a larger trend to transition the group's assets and capabilities to North America.

The conglomerate also announced they would be introducing European line Aquador to the U.S. in early 2024.

Nimbus Group currently owns the Alukin, Edgewater, Flipper, Paragon, and Nimbus brands, among others.

In a company statement, Nimbus Group said the plan includes building Nimbus brand boats at the Edgewater facility. The first model to be produced stateside will be the Nimbus T8 center console. The T8 is expected to be ready in the U.S. for 2025.

According to the group, "(l)ocal production of the Nimbus brand boats is another step in the Nimbus Group's strategic investment in the sale of premium boats in the important North America market."

"The North American powerboat market is by far the largest in the world and accounts for approximately half of the world market."

The T8 is a well-equipped dayboat or tender with T-top and walk-around design intended primarily for day trips and water sports. On the foredeck is a sunbed with lounging space for four passengers. The foredeck also conceals a large loading hatch with access to the cabin. Reversible helm seats and a mounted retractable table allow for a dining area for five people at the stern, while an aft sofa can accommodate six people, three facing aft and three facing the forward.

The Scandinavian-style layout also includes a two-person berth with a seperate head and sink for overnighting. A galley option is available via a retractable gas burner, as well as an optional wet bar with wash basin on the port side of the cabin.

During 2023 Q3, Nimbus reported an uptick in sales of 19%, with an overall increase in North American orders to $52.4 million, which amounts to 58% of their total order book.
