- Choice of Layout
The 450 in the standard form provides for a very large deck saloon and a third side cabin with two single berths. The alternative is to have a dinette area on the same level as the galley and deleting the third cabin.
- Side Cabin Option
The third cabin has either two 'L' shaped berths or two bunkbeds, with plenty of floor space and storage cupboards.
- Dinette Option
The dinette layout provides a completely separate dining area situated opposite the galley and on the same floor level, making it very convenient, plus it leaves the deck saloon as a lounge. The dinette incorporates storage lockers and also converts to make a comfortable additional berth.
- Deck Saloon
The raised deck saloon provides a large attractive living area with plenty of room to relax or entertain. On the port side is a comfortable settee with lockers and storage opposite, with a refrigerator and provision for a television. The floor is divided into sections for easy access to the engine space. On the starboard side there is a dining area with full size table (This is deleted with the dinette option).
- Forward Cabin

Only the world's best marine diesel engines are installed in the Broom 450. Please see the price list for full details on the choice, performance figures and costs.
The 450 deck layout develops further Broom's trend for making more use of the aft deck for both in-harbour living and cruising comfort. The all-round transom seating with aft facing athwartship seats surround the table to provide plenty of scope for enjoying the outdoor life. There is good access to the bathing platform with built-in steps each side of the boat. The aft sundeck, transom steps and bathing platform have teak decking for appearance and safety.
