The Broom European is one of the earlier models to utilise the, now classic, Broom layout of  forward guest cabin, midships saloon, aft owners’ cabin with en-suite toilet and shower, and the helm on the aft deck.  Equally capable as a sea-going coastal cruiser or for trips along the estuaries and rivers.  This is an opportunity to purchase a classic, spacious boat at a very competitive price.
