Continued successful cooperation between Prevas and the Uppsala company, Electroengine, has resulted in the world's first and largest electrically driven boat. Nimbus Boat is first out on the market with their Nimbus 27 model, which has a cruising speed of around 20 knots and a cost of SEK 50 for a full tank.

Nimbus' goal is to be best in the world when it comes to the environmental segment and they turned to Electroengine for development of an electrically driven leisure boat. For some time already, Prevas has been participating in the development of Electroengine's electric car. The cooperation has been expanded and Prevas has been engaged to develop an electrically driven boat and continue working with the company as a development and cooperation partner.
