All Broom Boats For Sale
Broom Boats Ltd
Broom boats have a long and distinguished history in the design and manufacture of sailing & motorboats, initially producing wooden sailing boats popular amongst local sailors for exploring the nearby Norfolk Broads. In more recent times, Broom has championed the creation of the aft cabin cruiser, which, whilst still ideally suited for inland waterways with low air draft and spacious accommodation, is equally at home in the open sea as a serious cruising vessel.
Year of Formation
The Broom company started manufacturing boats in 1898 under the leadership of one Charles J Broom. The wooden sailing craft he manufactured was well respected. By the early 1900s, when visitor numbers to the broads called for boats to be available for hire to visiting tourists, Broom thrived, producing their wooden sailing craft in great numbers. By the 1930s, the demand for hire craft leads Broom to begin manufacturing Motor cruisers, whose success led Broom to be approached by others to build bespoke boats for private individuals.
During the 2nd world war, Broom did not close down like other brands, instead of being approached to use their skills to build launches, lifeboats and tenders for the Royal Navy, a step that strengthened Broom's position as a fast and efficient production facility. In the 1960s, Broom was amongst the leaders in using fibreglass as the principal construction material for pleasure craft. Since this point, they have not looked back, being acknowledged leaders in the production of aft cabin cruisers for both coastal and inland waterways.
