The Broom 50 is an aft cabin motor yacht of majestic proportions, incorporating Broom's unrivalled experience in building aft cabin offshore cruisers with the maximum of comfort and interior accommodation. The strong, sea kindly hull, is based on the proven designs of Naval Architect John Bennett. It is one of the reasons for Broom's reputation for boats with excellent handling qualities and confident performance in adverse weather conditions. Broom have been designing and building aft cabin boats for generations. The 50, with its sheer size and beam, has allowed them to create a really spacious, comfortable craft which provides superior accommodation throughout the boat. The aft cockpit model as shown demonstrates a serious commitment to meeting the specific requirements of any serious cruising yachtsman. There is a full size outside dining area, yet the aft deck runs right around the boat making working on deck both safe and easy. The aft deck model as shown provides an even larger aft deck with the side coamings set right out to the edge of the hull. This creates an enormous deck area for open air seating and sunbathing. The aft deck is finished in a beautiful teak and provides a comfortable surface to walk on in any climate. The interior space is incredible, with Broom's single helm station concept offering not only a superb helm position, but also creating more accommodation in the main saloon. With a pair of suitable engines the Broom 50 model can make speeds of up to 30 knots and has handling to suit. The 'hard top' option is available on both the aft deck and aft cockpit models giving another level of versatility. Tested by Motor Boat and Yachting-they were very impressed! The easy to use fully enclosed hood fits neatly round the coaming to create a large sun lounge, yet with the hood removed the dining area can convert to a spacious and well protected sunbed. The aircraft type helm and navigators seats give a really secure feeling and provides excellent all round visibility. The helmsman's seat is fully adjustable at the push of a switch.

Forward Guest Cabin
The forward guest cabin in the 50 is really superior with an ensuite shower and toilet compartment. There is plenty of space for storage together with overhead lockers

Dominating the centre of the craft is the deck saloon which has both a dining area and comfortable lounge seating. The raised dining area has excellent visibility yet is conventionally located near the galley. The powerful shaft driven diesel engines are located low down below the deck saloon. This enables the best possible stability and sea going qualities. There is very good access to the engine room for routine maintenance and for full service, the floor area can be removed easily.

Upholstery and Interior Fabrics
The choice of materials is very flexible to meet customers requirements. Externally, vinyl covering is standard material in a single colour with piping. Internally, the owner is free to choose from the range of materials offered by our interior designers
One of the pleasures of owning a Broom boat is that you get to choose the colours and fabrics from a large range of quality materials, which stamps your own individual taste and life style into the craft
At the design stage of the hull, the transom was given an immense amount of thought. The first aim was to provide a choice of methods to carry a tender, each one to allow for the variety of use and areas that the 50 can operate. This has been achieved by a choice of: 1) A hydraulic gangplank to link tender (as illustrated) 2) An electric crane located on the port side 3) A pair of conventional davits Having resolved the situation, attention was given to providing easy access by incorporating the built in steps and finally the location of the picture windows which double as escape hatches.
At the heart of every serious cruising vessel is the galley. With the 50, Broom's have surpassed their previous efforts to provide a huge working area which incorporates a fully electric system of hob, and microwave combination oven. There is of course, plenty of cupboard and storage space. A washer dryer comes as standard under the hob with a fridge freezer at the forward end of the galley.
Only the best marine diesel engines are considered for the 50. Please see the price list for full details and choice, performance figures and costs. Special attention has been directed at using the best sound proofing techniques and the result is a very smooth, quiet running craft. This extends to the outside of the boat as well, because the engine exhausts are discharged underwater from specially developed transom mounted silencers.
Designed by John Bennett, the hull and superstructure are manufactured by Broom's associate company Aquafibre. The mouldings are of excellent quality and are produced using hand laid chopped strand mat and woven rovings in Lloyds approved isopthalic gel coat and resin, over double brushed isophthalic gel coat all but eliminating the risk of osmosis. Substantial transverse and longitudinal stringers are incorporated throughout the hull for strength. The hull and deck joint is both riveted and bonded.
There are two deck layouts available, the aft deck model and the aft cockpit model. The aft cockpit model has a deck that runs right around the aft of the boat, making working on deck safe and easy. The aft deck model has side coamings set right to the edge of hull. This creates a large area for open air seating and dining. Both models are available with a hardtop, where patio doors are incorporated into the design.
