Manufacturer Provided Description

Broom have long been regarded as European leaders in the design of the aft cabin, serious cruising boat and the 450 carries this to a new level of sophistication and sea going ability. The 450 is designed to fit in the Broom Range between the 415 and the 50. The accommodation provides for a third twin cabin or a large dinette area on the same floor level as the galley. The hull is a development of the Broom Offshore marque refined and perfected over the past thirty years. The aft deck layout maximises the outside living space with an easy to use, full size hood. The forward section of the hood incorporates the new Broom quick release system, which eliminates the need for studs and fasteners. With a choice of the world's best marine engines, Broom's reputation for reliability and seagoing quality is further improved with the introduction of the 450.
