Broom 9/70

The 9/70 was designed to give the maximum possible space in a 32 footer whilst still providing a safe sea boat with the traditional good handling qualities of Broom craft. A slightly more compact version of the 10/70, the 9/70 was based on a John Bennett hull, with the superstructure designed by Andrew Wolstenholme, who also worked with Broom’s own design team to provide the interior layout.

The aft cabin has a double bunk against one side, and incorporates an en-suite shower and toilet. The forward cabin was fitted with V-berths as standard although this could be replaced with a second double if preferred. Adjacent to the galley, a forward toilet served for day use and for guests. The design retains the twin helm positions, and as with the 10/70 there is no sliding door access to the saloon.

The standard specification provided for twin 62HP Volvo MD31s although a more typical configuration for river and coastal use was twin 110HP Volvo TAMD30As.
