Broom Boats A History
Posted on : 31/07/2012
We are delighted to say that Broom Boats have produced a lovely collectors item; a book about Broom Boats history, highlighting the inspiration and evolution of this marque with each of the new models they have Launched.
The Skipper’s Guide felt it was a ‘must have book’ not only for Broom owners but enthusiasts that admire good boats with a good pedigree, attention to detail and craftsmanship. Broom Boats have been immensely successful and retain a reputation for crafting boats for the most discerning of tastes. The book is a lovely keep sake spanning the period from 1898, with Charles Broom creating the beautiful 35ft estuary cruisers, through to the luxury Broom Boats of today. Many of the traditional wooden yachts are still in Commission and there is a lovely collection of them at Broom Boats Boatyard in Brundall, Norfolk. The older vessels were hand crafted using the prevalent methods of the time. Nowadays, the modern ones are crafted using cutting edge technology and modern materials most recently typified by the Broom 455.
The book is not heavy going and includes beautiful illustrations of boats they have launched over the years, along with some charming stories. Like many long established businesses, Broom Boats have seen their fair share of hindrances, two world wars and various recessions to name a few, but still they maintain a position at the forefront of Marine Craft.
As you will see from this book, Broom Boats are here to stay. Having an historical background of merit and an extremely exciting future we look forward to seeing what comes next.
The current Broom 455 certainly captures the fine traditions of the company with modern design, finishing and performance.
