A multifunctional, well equipped and fast day boat intended for day-to-day activities and water sports, with overnight accommodation for two – a worthy successor to the Nova and R-series.

The T8 has a cruising speed of between 20-35 knots, with a maximum speed in excess of 40 knots.
The construction, quality, excellent seaworthiness and handling, combined with superior speed resources, invite a more active style of driving.

The T8 is intended for day-to-day social activities, transportation, water sports and leisure activities. It is based on a newly developed air-lubricated stepped hull with excellent seafaring qualities and a low planning threshold. The T8 has a cruising speed of between 20-35 knots, with a maximum speed in excess of 40 knots.

The T8 provides stable, safe and quiet performance, which makes it easy to operate the boat at high speed, even in poor weather conditions. The construction, quality, excellent seaworthiness and handling, combined with superior speed resources, invite a more active style of driving that still feels safe and secure, even when really putting the T8 through it’s paces.

Integrated functionality

The T8 has a wide walk-around design with generous areas for moving around the boat

As with the T9, the T8 has a wide walk-around design with generous areas for moving around the boat, which contributes to extra freedom of movement on board and makes it easy to board or leave the boat. In front of the cockpit it is possible to have a “sunbed” which, in combination with the spacious areas on the foredeck, provides room for 4 people. The foredeck conceals a large loading hatch with access to the cabin for easy loading.

Sunbed mode seats
The backrest on the aft sofa can be set to three different positions (angles) depending on how the sofa is being used at the time – seating during a journey (upright position), aft lounge sofa (angled) or full sunbed (folded down).

The cockpit has inherited the same clean “look-n-feel” as the T9 and can be equipped with 7”, 9” or 12” plotter. Reversible driver’s seats and a mounted retractable table make it possible to produce a dining area for five people in three easy movements. The aft sofa accommodates 6 people, 3 facing the stern of the boat and 3 facing the bow. The backrest on the aft sofa can be set to three different positions (angles) depending on how the sofa is being used at the time – seating during a journey (upright position), aft lounge sofa (angled) or full sunbed (folded down). Under the aft sofa there is a retractable refrigerator and an easily accessible equipment area. On the aft deck there is also a shower outlet and two side storage compartments for fenders, mooring lines and shore power.

Below deck there is a two-person berth with integrated ventilation, LED lighting, ample stowage and separate head with sink. An optional galley facility is available via a retractable gas burner next to the hatch with a hand basin on the port side of the cabin. The T8 is available with three different canopy solutions – mooring canopy, spray hood or as a T-top design with a large canopy that covers the entire afterdeck.

T-top with Polycarbonate roof

The Polycarbonate roof on the T-top, in combination with the canopy, makes it possible to stay sheltered during the journey
The combination of the T-top and large canopy, which covers the entire afterdeck, makes it possible for 5 people to sit comfortably in a bright and spacious yet sheltered setting.

A new feature of the T8 is that it can be equipped with a robust T-top with Polycarbonate roof that provides sun protection without detracting from the open-air feel you want from a day boat. The combination of the T-top and large canopy, which covers the entire afterdeck, makes it possible for 5 people to sit comfortably in a bright and spacious yet sheltered setting. The T8 is approved for a maximum of 8 people.

The Polycarbonate roof on the T-top, in combination with the canopy, makes it possible to stay sheltered during the journey, even when the weather takes a turn for the worse. This extends the boating season and expands the areas of use, not least in Scandinavia.

What they say


“The new T8 is the one we were most looking forward to testing. It may be the smallest of the bunch at 26ft 9in (8.15m) long but with up to 300hp hanging off the transom and a very tidy-looking twin step hull, it should also be the fastest and most agile.

Two other factors make it of particular interest to sportsboat fans; it’s considerably more affordable than the other models, with a starting price of £87,142, and it’s trailable. Just.”

  • Motor Boat & Yachting

“Nimbus has hit the sweet spot with its new Nimbus T8. It has easy and safe walkaround deck for socializing and all kind of water activities. A real life size cabin with separate toilet adds the comforts for the day and weekend trips. The Nimbus T8 is a joy to drive and is has a sparkling performance – it’s made for fun and action!”
