Broom 35 Captain
The Broom Captain was introduced as a more spacious version of the standard four-berth cruiser and at the time offered a new standard of comfort and convenience. The central wheelhouse had either a fixed or hinged wooden canopy, or one of folding canvas.
The so-called stateroom was forward with two single berths in an L-shaped configuration – later converted to a double on the port side by some owners. Bathroom facilities ran only to a basin and toilet, but a shower was added later in some models. The saloon provided two further berths and the galley ran across the aft of the boat. The open cockpit seating area was a special feature and set the tone for future designs.
The Captain was fitted with a single Morris engine and also came complete with a 12ft sailing dinghy.

Hello Back in the late 1960's my father had a Broom Captain which we had until 1975. He then moved onto a 45ft steel Degroot The style of the Broom Captain , was different to most I have seen, as the front cabin window was a small oval. It also had oval window towards the rear on both sides. Does anyone know the style of this vessel with this type of front cabin window.
