Broom 35 Sedan
Based on the same hull as the 35 European, this boat has an entirely different deck and superstructure. Two versions were made, both with an aft cockpit; one a single level cruiser, and the other having a flying bridge, which was enlarged on later models. Although these are both popularly known as the 35 Sedan, it is now thought that the Sedan label originated with the single level model, and the flybridge version should properly be referred to as such.
Two forward cabins provide twin v-berths and a side-accessed double, whilst another double can be made from the convertible settee in the wheelhouse/saloon. With so much space taken by the cockpit, there is only room for a single bathroom alongside the galley. There is an interior helm in the wheelhouse/saloon and another on the flying bridge.
Most boats were fitted with twin 145hp turbo-charged Perkins 6.354 diesel engines. Later boats had 150hp/185hp range 4 turbo Perkins, giving a maximum speed of 21 knots.
