The Storebro 465 Biscay was one of the new models that have been developed within the Nimbus Group from 2000. Although the shape reminded the SRC 430 Biscay and also used the same flying bridge, the ship was in many parts a new development. The design heavily followed the previous Nimbus design line.
Compared to the SRC 430 Biscay, the side windows were cut narrower and the stairway to the flybridge was now a fixed staircase. These stairs at the same time reduced the width of the aft sliding door and so took the inside of the ship quite a bit of light.
Although the hull resembled in its design the SRC 420/430, it had a completely different propeller / rudder design. The long propeller shafts associated with a small angle of inclination ranged almost to the transom. The rudders were stern-mounted. The exhaust pipes no longer ended under water at the transom but now on aft side of the hull.
Overall, with the construction of the ship it was a development of an exceptionally quiet ship.
