  Remarks  
The Nova 42 was the top model of the Nova series. It was characterized by a large cockpit and protected gangways.

Concept
The Nova 42 was introduced in 2005 and shared the hull with the Storebro 410 Commander presented in 2004. As with other Nimbus boats, the hull was available in different colours. These were blue, white, red and beige. Blue was probably the most popular colour.
On special request the ship was delivered as Storebro 42 Nova. For the Storebro Nova, the grille behind the side windows was replaced by a wooden part painted in Storebro style with a milled crown logo. Another alternative was to replace the Nimbus flags on the grille with the Storebro crown.
The ship had three cabins and two toilet rooms. This arrangement was possible because the deck saloon of the Nova 42 was smaller than that of the SRC 410 Commander. On the latter, this layout could only be achieved by reducing the size of the owner's bathroom shower.

Engines
The Nova was offered with two engine options. Either with a stern-drive or a classic shaft drive. Unlike the SRC 410, the motors were not straight-lined, but connected to the shafts via V-gears. From the start of production D6 370I with 363 hp for shaft drive and D6 350A with 337 hp for stern-drive were installed. The D6 350A were the most powerful engines available from Volvo Penta for stern drive at the time of production. With the release of the D6 370A the D6 350A were exchanged for them.

Miscellaneous
Actually, Nimbus should only build boats up to 40 feet within the Viamare shipyard group. With this ship the old plans were cancelled. The Nova 42 was built parallel to the SRC 410 Commander in the shipyard halls at Storebro in Storebro. All wooden components for these ships were also built at Storebro. Apart from the type plate and design, these are Storebro boats, which is why these ships are also listed on this page.
Another characteristic for inaccurate classification of the Nova 42 is its CIN. While the first ships were still designated SE-NIMZ00xx..., later ships were designated SE-SRCZ00xx... in conformity with Storebro.
The manual shows Storebro Bruks AB as the shipyard. It is also interesting to look at the cover of the manual. Here the lettering "STOREBRO True Scandinavian" is clearly in the centre and the depicted ship shows the Storebro crown and the typical wooden parts with white "STOREBRO 42 NOVA" lettering.
