The Broom Captain was introduced as a more spacious version of the standard four-berth cruiser and at the time offered a new standard of comfort and convenience. The central wheelhouse had either a fixed or hinged wooden canopy, or one of folding canvas.

The so-called stateroom was forward with two single berths in an L-shaped configuration - later converted to a double on the port side by some owners. Bathroom facilities ran only to a basin and toilet, but a shower was added later in some models. The saloon provided two further berths and the galley ran across the aft of the boat. The open cockpit seating area was a special feature and set the tone for future designs.

The Captain was fitted with a single Morris engine and also came complete with a 12ft sailing dinghy.
