New Model: Broom 430

Its always nice to see Broom pushing the design in the British aft cabin motor cruiser style. Since relaunched in 2011 Broom have been on the upswings of things presenting two totally new models sub eleven meters, an important size for the first time buyer, and now presents this new 430 representing its core market in both size and design. The 430 is pure Broom British aft cabin cruiser, and does not change the World in the looks of its type, but it is surely an important move forward which has been waiting a long time to arrive. There is the modernity in the two cabin interior, and some important options as the hard top in the exterior, which is sending an important message to buyers who want to have an all year round cruiser capable of navigating both inland waterways thanks to the low height, and offshore. Options will be also important inside in the 430 with three optional layouts; standard extended saloon, optional split galley, and dinette layout. This last reduces the size of the fore cabin replacing the double island berth with a V-shape double and adds an extra dinette below. Power options are a single 370hp, and twins from 225 up to 435hp.
