Builder/Manufacturer Broom


The Broom 33 is a well-proven stylish, practical, and spacious cruiser from the highly regarded Broom yard. Ideal for long term cruising they are well suited to coastal trips or exploring rivers and estuaries thanks to a clever planing hull design with a keel to improve handling at slower speeds. 'Fat Duck' benefits from the larger Volvo Penta TAMD41A 200hp engines and additional internal helm, making her a truly capable sea cruiser, even on colder days! Her inventory includes a bow thruster, diesel heating, folding arch, electric windlass, chart plotter, radar, and more. Internally she is presented in extremely good condition, the owner has arranged for the hull and superstructure to have a complete compound polish and wax, ready for her next owners. A great opportunity to buy a rare smaller Broom with all of the important extras.
