Aluminium boat producer is acquired by Sweden’s Nimbus family

Alukin Boats Sweden AB has been fully acquired by leading Scandinavian boat manufacturer Nimbus Boats.

The specialist aluminium boat producer, based north of Stockholm, has developed steadily, winning several awards since the company was established in 2008. During the financial crisis of 2007/08, the founders, Peter and Maria Nikula, still chose to invest in the company and the production of fully welded aluminium boats.

The marine manufacturer Nimbus Boats was established in 1968 in Gothenburg when the first five Nimbus 26s were built, and it became a part owner of Alukin in January 2018.

Maria Nikula, CEO of Alukin Boats Sweden AB, commented:


All Nimbus boats are tested and certified by DNV, (Det Norske Veritas), the most highly renowned marine certification agency in the world.

Nimbus CEO Jan-Erik Lindström commented:

The aim is to further continue the development and refinement of the model program. The latest model from the aluminium boat producer is the new bowrider, the Alukin DP 650, was launched at the Stockholm and Gothenburg shows earlier in 2020.
