Broom Ocean 31

Primarily a river boat, the confusingly named Ocean 31 is still popular because of its low air and water draught giving it flexibility on river systems. The displacement hull gave it good handling capabilities, with the low cruising speed proving no disadvantage inland.

The interior layout packed ample accommodation into a modestly sized boat, with the double en-suite owners cabin aft, a forward twin berthed cabin with separate shower and toilet, and the option of a convertible double berth in the saloon.For river use the standard single engine installation was more than adequate, with a 55HP Volvo Penta MD22L or the 78HP TAMD22 a typical choice.
