Broom 30 Bosun
Believed to be the immediate predecessor to the Broom 30, the Bosun shares a similar round-bilged GRP hull but the decks and superstructure are entirely timber, and the interior has a significantly different layout. In addition, the Bosun has a (now) classic sliding saloon roof and sides, rather than the fixed, upright saloon of the Broom 30.
It is believed that 3 of these boats were built – one for a private owner and two for the Broom hire fleet.
Engines are a single Perkins 4-cylinder diesel of 35hp.
