The Broom 30 Coupe was a revival of the popular Broom 29, a medium powered displacement cruiser designed mainly as a river boat but with a capacity for estuary cruising. Aimed at the entry-level market, the 30 is ideal for the Broads as well as other river systems with restricted air draught, and was also introduced as part of the new Broom Boating Holidays fleet in 2013. An optional hardtop was introduced in 2014 with a retractable canvas roof and bonded windscreen with opening inserts.
The modernised accommodation provides a double offset berth forward as well as an occasional single berth in the saloon sofa. The open aft cockpit makes good outdoor socialising space in fine weather and there is an all-weather upholstered seat on the coach roof. Interior and exterior styling has been given a contemporary feel in keeping with the new Broom DNA, introduced under the new ownership by designer Graham Warren.
The 30 comes with a 60HP Nanni diesel, with the option of a bowthruster for additional maneuverability .
