Broom Owners Club

Broom 34

Witch’s Broom

Introduced as the Broom Ocean 34, the boat was later rebadged as the Broom 34 to strengthen the Broom branding. Designed as a combined inland and coastal cruiser, the Ocean 34 features the wide decks and folding windscreens typical of the range. However some models, built without a radar arch and with a folding mast for the navigation lights on the coachroof, were clearly not intended for extended offshore passages.

With the same interior layout as the 35CL, the 34 could be fitted either with a forward V berth or dinette, in addition to the well specified aft master cabin and deck saloon. A sliding door from the saloon gave access to the side decks on the port side.

34s were typically fitted with single engines such as the Perkins 135HP for river use, but could also house twin Volvo 130HP or Yanmar 140HP for coastal cruising.
