Nimbus group - Paragon gone

I had a look on the Paragon site Paragon Yachts only to find a message that they have gone bankrupt along with Nimbus. I liked the look of the paragon boats. I hope they can be resurrected.

Send a message via MSN to Zippy
real shame as they were good boats but i guess the exchange rate is killing their export orders.

i would think someone would buy up the brands that are selling.

i always liket the Paragon range and do think there is a market for them but like anything, it needs to be cost effective and at the moment, people just arnt spending money!!!

"FOG IN CHANNEL. CONTINENT CUT OFF!"

A shame - I really liked those boats, not that I would ever be able to afford one.
