Broom 455

Ocean Mist

The 455 was a development of the successful Broom 450 but only one was ever built. In build when Martin Broom sold the company in 2010, it was completed for Norfolk Yacht Agency.  

The entertaining space provides seating for 10 with convertible sun loungers and a built in barbecue and maximises aft deck space by taking the cockpit seating to the transom. The built in steps on both sides give access directly to the side decks, with gates each side to enter the cockpit area. Three seats at the helm can be separately configured to face forward or backwards for practicality or sociability. A quick release two part hood protects the cockpit area. A hydraulic submersible bathing platform is available as an option. 

The saloon layout reverses the traditional saloon/dinette arrangement, with the dinette immediately to port on entering from the cockpit, and a raised saloon seating area to starboard forward. The standard arrangement is for double en suite staterooms forward and aft, with a third twin cabin to starboard forward. 

Typical engine configuration is 318HP-500HP twin diesels from either Caterpillar or Volvo.

      Hi apologies if I didn’t respond to an email you sent some time ago. We have a berth in Lymington - no boat as we sold her in March 2022 but kept the berth. We spent 6 years on the Thames in Bushnells in Wargrave and been back recently to stay with our friends on Constance a Piper barge berthed in Harleyford. Are you considering selling her? Kind Regards Gareth
