The Broom 50 and 530 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 has been designing and building aft cabin boats for generations. The 50 and 530, with its sheer size and beam, allowed Broom to create a really spacious, comfortable craft that provides superior accommodation throughout the boat. 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 and 530 model will achieve speeds in excess of 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. When tested by Motor Boat and Yachting-they were extremely 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 sun-bed. The ergonomic 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.

John Bennett designed this powerboat. 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.
Ergonomically well laid out, the console design permits ease of monitoring the engine systems and navigation equipment, together with an excellent view. Weather protection is provided by the large windscreen. A two part hood protects the helmstation and cockpit area, or in terms of the hardtop version, this protects the helmstation while the hood protects the cockpit area.
Saloon 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.

At the heart of every serious cruising vessel is the galley. With the 530, 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.
