Sweden-based Nimbus Boats has been building boats since 1968, and says growth potential in Asia is strong
Asiamarine has been appointed as the official dealer of Nimbus Boats in Hong Kong, Singapore, Thailand and Vietnam.
Sweden-based Nimbus Boats was founded in 1968, and has historically focused its sales in the European market and US markets. The brand became widely known for its collaborations with tennis star Bj√∂rn Borg in the 1980s. In 2018, Nimbus acquired Alukin Boats Sweden AB, an established manufacturer of aluminium boats, and Bella-Veneet Oy, with the Bella, Flipper, Aquador and Falcon brands. Brands from Finland-founded Bella-Veenet accounted for 35% of net sales in 2019.
“With the launch of our new models of Weekenders, Tenders and Commutes, Nimbus is ready for the next step into Asia,” Asiamarine said in a media statement. “Nimbus has great potential in Asia and we believe that the future growth for Asia market is very strong.”
The Nimbus team says it is confident with the new partnership. ¬†”We chose Asiamarine as our partner because of its strong presence and being a well-known organisation situated in Hong Kong, Singapore, Bangkok, Phuket and Vietnam,” said Jonas G√∂thberg, commercial director at Nimbus. “Asiamarine has high knowledge and high service grade. We believe that Asiamarine and Nimbus will grow strong together.”
Michel Joly, dealership manager with Asiamarine, added: “The signature of our regional dealership agreement with Nimbus today marks significant progress as the Nimbus range completes our offer with the highest quality product imaginable in this segment of yachts.¬†It also complements without infringing on our existing portfolio. Nimbus is well suited for Asian clients, who are mainly attracted to the best quality in their purchase. We are proud to bring¬† Nimbus in our region and the first slot has been pre-sold to experienced boat owners.”
To celebrate the dealership, Asiamarine has confirmed it is soon bringing the T8 and T11 models to Hong Kong.
