Broom 430


The 430 debuted at Dusseldorf 2014 and was a development of the popular 425. The boat used the latest finishes and technology in a proven semi-displacement hull which performed well at sea and inland. Twin transom steps and wide decks make for easy access and practicality and there was the option of a hardtop with retractable canvas roof. 

Internally the 430 has been radically updated and looks more like a boutique apartment than a boat. The saloon was offered with layout options as well as a choice of fabrics and either a contemporary or classic design style. The aft cabin features an innovative athwartships bed and a chaise longue, beneath a panoramic transom window. The port side washroom features a translucent sliding door and rain-maker shower. The versatile V-berth in the forward cabin comes as standard and easily converts from a double to a twin. In common with other recent models, the 430 favours Volvo’s D series engines and could be supplied with a single 370hp D6 giving a top speed of 18 knots, or more usually with twin engines ranging from 225hp to 440hp.
