Broom 345 OS

Designed by Andrew Wolstenholme, the 345 was the smallest model in the Offshore range. The enclosed cockpit provides a sheltered seating area, and there is all round deck access with only a slight incline to the stern. The early models had a “wrap-around” front windscreen and side windows, although later models reverted to the more traditional GRP framed windows.

The interior layout is similar to the 35 CL, with the staircase to the aft cabin on the port side and the ensuite toilet and shower sharing a combined stall to starboard. Forward, the second heads is opposite the galley and also serves the forward V-berth guest cabin.

Typical engine configuration for the 345 is twin 220HP Mercruisers or 230HP to 250HP Yanmars.
