HISTORY OF BROOM
A rare opportunity to own and continue with the Broom Speedboat restoration project of our late fathers . I was told this was around 1976/79 broom Speedboat Hull , it you would need verifying , this is being sold as seen , with photos for accuracy.
This comes on a solid original trailer , which will also need restoring to make usable with new tires and freeing up for towing .
Buyer would need method to transport and collect both of these after auction closes
This Speedboat Hull doesn’t come with an engine , but does have some other parts to the boat inside , such as rubber trim and original windshield and replacement
This is being sold by the executors finalising the administration of the estate , so being sold sold as seen with no return .
Have not been able to measure this , but hoping they are fairly standard and you know what you are buying .
A history of quality and innovation of the original Broom boat company
For more than 110 years, the Broom name has been synonymous with luxury boating. From the earliest days of hand-crafted wooden sailing ships to the sophisticated cruisers of today, a tradition of engineering excellence and quality of manufacture runs through every boat we build.
Broom was at the forefront in introducing motorised cruising, building the holiday hire business and developing the first fibreglass boats. Our boats introduced many to the joys of being on the water: from the simple pleasures of boating on the Norfolk Broads to the luxury of cruising at sea for the rich and famous. Throughout our history we have led in the development of new ideas to make boating more enjoyable.

In 1898, Charles John Broom launched his business, acquiring the Brundall boatyard of the Norfolk Broads Yachting Company where he had worked as a craftsman before rising to manage the yard.
Although the River Yare was then a thriving commercial waterway, change was on the way. The railways were taking away the freight transport but bringing new holiday makers keen to enjoy the tranquillity of the Norfolk Broads.
Charles built “beautifully crafted sailing cruisers for gentlemen” to meet this new market as well as maintaining and mooring the boats for his wealthy clients. In 1912, Broom was among the first to operate a hire fleet, offering boating holidays to a wider audience. For many, this was their first boating experience, so ‘attendants’ were employed to help sail the boat and do the chores.
The yard was closed during the First World War. Charles died in 1915, but the business was opened up after the war by his sons Charles, Bernard and Basil.
