I am so very pleased to be able to offer this magnificent example of a Broom 39 Cruiser.

This boat has to be seen to be fully appreciated as she is both very well cared for and incredibly spacious. She has just been serviced and was last antifouled in mid 2021

Being a Broom she is one of the best built boats out there, and this is reflected in her current condition and spec.
She offers a true spacious three cabin, two shower / heads layout for extended cruising with family and friends, also benefiting from the convivial dinette opposite the well equipped and modern galley.
From her teak woodwork to her soft furnishings and GRP she is very hard to find fault with. If I was to be overly critical then the front cabin fabrics would benefit from a mild clean over as they are cream and pick up marks easily. Her beautiful saloon and lower dinette are all trimmed in sumptuous cream leather.
She has a Victron 2kw inverter charger system fitted and has diesel heating throughout the boat to keep things warm when winter cruising, or living aboard.
The factory fitted folding means this big boat can squeeze under an 11 foot bridge, giving her massive flexibility and scope to cruise other river systems of Europe with ease.
She has a full suite of quality nav kit, including Radar, plotter and autopilot, and a flip-flop triple helm seat that also becomes a relaxer seat and a social bench on the vast elevated aft cockpit, which can seat 9 in comfort.

The wide safe decks and all- round rails give a secure working deck, plus the incorporated fender baskets make working the deck a breeze for the crew.

She has her BSS cert and broads toll paid and is very much ready to go boating almost anywhere.

These are sought-after, versatile boats with a great following and industry wide respect for the build, design and performance. This one is quite special coming up in her current condition, so swift viewing is strongly recommended.

These boats are renowned for their sea-keeping and build, and this great example is powered by the reliable and respected Volvo Penta TAMD62A 330HP motors, giving plenty of power whilst also able to cruise the rivers in a relaxed economical manner.
A bowthruster is also fitted to aid manoeuvring.

She comes complete with the 3m barely used inflatable and Honda 2.3 outboard motor too for those little backwater adventures.
