The Broom 50 is an aft cabin motor yacht of majestic proportions. This craft is a fine example of Broom's unrivalled experience in building fast offshore aft-cabin cruisers, with the maximum of comfort, elegance and desirability. The strong, sea-kindly hull, is based upon the established designs of John Bennett. The 50 has excellent handling qualities and confident performance in adverse weather conditions. Broom have been designing and building aft cabin boats for generations. The 50, with its sheer size and beam, has allowed them to create a really spacious, comfortable craft which provides superior accommodation in three entirely separate cabins, each with its own toilet and shower.

Aft Master Cabin
The master cabin aft is a "home from home", with an abundance of conventional storage and cupboard space.
There is a sensible degree of flexibility in the planned layout of the 50; the forward cabin can have two single berths or one double as illustrated, whilst the toilet compartment for the side cabin can be used as a separate utility room with access directly from the galley.
Alternatively, this can be incorporated in either the forward or the side cabin, to create a large two-berth compartment.
Dominating the centre of the craft is the deck saloon.
The powerful shaft driven diesel engines are located low down in the middle section of the hull. This enables the best possible stability and sea going qualities,
which provides a strong sense of security and long-term dependability.
There is good access to the engine room for routine maintenance and for full service needs the whole floor area of the deck saloon can be removed easily.
Special attention has been directed at using the best sound proofing techniques and the result is a very smooth, quiet running vessel. This extends to the outside of the boat as well, as the engine exhausts are discharged underwater from specially developed transom mounted silencers.
At the heart of every serious cruising boat is the galley.
With the 50, Broom have surpassed their previous efforts to provide a huge working area which incorporates a fully electric system of cooker, hobs, microwave oven and refrigerator.
There is, of course, plenty of cupboard and storage space.
The design and layout of the aft deck demonstrates a serious commitment to
meeting the specific requirements of any serious cruising yachtsman, and owes much to extensive discussion with boat owners.
There is a full size outside dining area, yet the aft deck runs right around the boat making working on deck both safe and easy.
For those owners who prefer an even larger aft deck, there is an option to
have the side coamings set right out to the edge of the hull. This creates an
enormous deck area for open air seating and sunbathing.
The easy to use fully enclosed hood fits neatly around the coaming to create
a large sun lounge.
In addition, with hood removed the dining area can convert to a spacious and well-protected sunbed.
The aft deck is finished in a beautiful teak and provides a comfortable surface to walk on in any climate.
The aircraft type helm and navigator seats give a really secure feeling
and provide excellent all-round visibility.
The helmsman's seat is fully adjustable at the push of a switch.
