The 425 combines the best of the 415 and 42CL providing a boat capable of both fast offshore and inland cruising. The design incorporates the dual aft steps from the cockpit, which proved popular on the 365 and 450, as well as modernistic frameless windows. Teak decking on the bathing platform and transom steps is provided as standard.
Internally the 425 concentrates on comfort for guests as well as owner, with a larger forward cabin with a dual purpose bunk which can be configured as twins or a double. The influence of Broom's in-house design team can be seen in the internal styling with owners given a wide choice of upholstery options.In common with other recent models, the 425 favours Volvo's D series engines and can 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.
