Project: Broom 300

After presenting two new models the past September at the Southampton show, this British builder since a year under new ownership presses more the accelerator and shows the project for a new 300 model.  The 300 is a sport cruiser design set to put entry level boaters into its range of cruisers. As far as I know Broom has never built a fully open sport cruiser as the 300, but I am not totally sure about this.  Whatever it was I cannot remember it, but I do know they build open speed boats during the sixties and seventies. This model although looking very Broom all the way will offer modern amenities as bonded side windows, and skylight serving all the lower deck.  The provisional plans show a spacious single level cockpit.  Inside in the lower deck will be an owners room to fore, shower head, galley, and L-shaped saloon.  Power or propulsion choices have not been yet advised but it does look to be a traditional line shafts by the layout of the interior especially since it does not feature a mid-ships berth.
