Pre Purchase Surveys of ‘Broom Boats’ built in Brundall Norwich on the Norfolk Broads
We have in the last month surveyed three different models of Broom Boats, namely the Broom 425, Broom 395 and the Broom 37 with ages ranging from 7 to 25 years
Broom 425 – The larger of the three models, with a great aft double cabin, a very clever double / twin single arrangement up front where the ‘berth’ pivots apart to make two singles or back together for a cosy double. An interesting and different arrangement that works very well
Broom 395 – One feature that all these models have in common is that they are all aft cabin versions with a medium V hull and a central box keel giving great sea-keeping capabilities
Broom 37 – One of the limited number of 37s designed with only the upper steering position, where most 37 had dual station controls
This is a Trio of Broom’s, all with twin diesel engines for excellent performance, a medium V hull for fine sea keeping qualities, an aft master double stateroom and an upper steering / control helm station – all models passed with flying colours
As with all modern production boats utilising fit-out GRP mouldings / modules there is a downside. With all these Broom models as per most expensive production vessels built to high specifications, our access to areas such as bilge spaces, fuel tanks, along with seacock valves (plus much more) is very restricted.
