Broom 39KL

The 39KL is the successor to the popular Ocean 38, with an improved bathing platform with built-in steps. The name change to KL emphasises the good handling provided by the keel. The 39 followed the example of the 42 CL in using the narrow “eyebrow” style side windows and a black frame for the front windscreen.

Interior design follows the traditional layout of aft master en-suite cabin, with separate shower and toilet. The split-level living space offers a deck level saloon, and a galley and dinette area forward, before the standard V-berth forward cabin.

The 39KL is normally fitted with a single 135HP engine if intended mainly for river use, and twin 260HP Yanmars for offshore cruising.
