The 36 was part of the fast offshore range with a planing hull but without a keel, making it a fast boat for offshore passages but still suitable for inland cruising.
The interior layout makes the most of the limited space with an offset double berth in the aft cabin as well as separate shower and WC cabins. The deck saloon has to double up as the dining area, with steps down to the galley, forward heads and guest V-berth.
Most boats were fitted with twin Volvo’s, typically 220HP.

John and Karen Worsdale
Have owned a Broom36 for 24 years and cruised for many months on the European waterways, I can say with the utmost certainly that this model cruises perfectly on one engine and is most certainly suitable for inland cruising. Also was advised at brooms that the hull is semi displacement. Also informed by Brooms that this is the only model where the radar arch can be lowered by hand, separately from the GRP arch.
