The new Broom 370 retains the legendary handling and sea keeping of Broom's hand-crafted boats, but this boat offers power, economy, green credentials and sleek interior design. The beautiful and flush panoramic transom window, shows off the joys of the vast aft cabin. The chaise longue in the saloon is contemporary and comfortable and the pop up LCD television is discerningly blended into the hand made solid wood furniture.
For raw power, engine choices include twin Volvo 330's producing 30+ knots. For pure economy, the Nanni hybrid gives four hours of electric only cruising, saving £s in diesel. For the best of both worlds, the single Volvo 370 gives economy and 20 knots plus. The versatility of the boat affords luxurious cruising, both at sea and on the river
The Andrew Wolstenholme hull design has a medium 'v' planing hull with a shallow skeg/ keel which allows higher cruising speeds whilst retaining low speed handling. The air draft can be further reduced by lowering the radar arch. This allows freedom to cruise unrestricted in many of Europe's finest inland waterways. As with all Broom motor yachts customer feedback has played a major role in the design and interior layout of the 370.
The hull mouldings are produced using hand laid chopped strand mat and woven rovings in Lloyds approved isophthalic and orthophthalic resin over a double-brushed isophthalic gel coat, all but eliminating the risk of osmosis.
Transverse and longitudinal stringers are incorporated for strength.
The hull and deck joints are both riveted and bonded.
