The Swedish holding company R12 AB is the new majority shareholder of the Nimbus Group with the brand names Nimbus Boats and Paragon Yachts.

The Swedish privately held holding company R12 has acquired the assets relating to the Nimbus Boats and Paragon Yacht brands and intend to invest further to strengthen the Group’s position as the leading Nordic producer of leisure boats in the 20 – 40 feet range.

The core focus going forward will be to further develop the market and relationship with existing dealers and to strengthen the product development efforts of the group under the two brand names Nimbus Boats and Paragon Yachts.

"We will continue to build our success with a wider range of our Nimbus Coupe, that was nominated boat of the year 2012 with a bigger 40ft aiming for the European, Russian and Asian markets," says acting CEO Magnus Andersson.

All business focus now will be at the coming boat shows, first Friedrichshafen and then Hamburg Boat Show and the launch of the new Paragon 25 Ranger for the Nordic markets.

We are very optimistic with the new more focused and cost efficient organization, continuing building the two brands with our skilful workforce and distribution network.
