2004 Broom 42CL for sale

Penned from the drawing board of legendary naval architect Andrew Wolstenholme, the Broom 42CL gives you the widest cruising potential without compromising on seaworthiness. It is a great cruising boat, whether on the inland waterways due to her low air draft capability or out at sea. Offering sumptuous accommodation for 6 in 2 separate cabins and dinette conversion, she is ideal for spending extended periods of time on board.

"Freya" has been thoroughly enjoyed and has cruised extensively around the UK, Ireland and much of mainland Europe. Fitted with the biggest Yanmar 440hp engines, she offers good offshore cruising potential. Extensively equipped as you would expect from a boat from this renowned British yard.
