Broom 425

Brooms are pleased to introduce the latest addition to their range of luxury cruising motor yachts, the Broom 425. The design incorporates many new features that have been recently developed across the range, plus new ideas created by Naval architect, Andrew Wolstenholme and our in-house design team headed up by Lucinda Westley. The exterior has our latest concept in styling and incorporates steps both sides of the transom which have proved to be so successful on the Broom 450 and Broom 365. The design makes use of frameless windows and the latest techniques of bonding the windows to the superstructure.

The interior provides for a really superior guest cabin with a large shower and toilet compartment. The berth can be easily converted from twins to a double. The spacious deck/ saloon has corner seating and a table to port side with chairs being made portable to provide two comfortable dining seats at the main table. Alternatively owners can choose the dinette layout, which incorporates an additional seating area adjacent to and on the same level as the galley.

The 425 is available with a single engine giving speeds of up to 18 knots.

Hull Design and Construction

The mouldings are of excellent quality and are produced using hand laid chopped strand mat and woven rovings in Lloyds approved isopthalic gel coat and resin, over double brushed isopthalic gel coat all but eliminating the risk of osmosis. Substantial transverse and longitudinal stringers are Incorporated throughout the hull for strength. The hull and deck joint is both riveted and bonded.

Deck Layout

The layout provides an easy to use boat when either passing through locks, low bridges or just mooring up, yet also provides comfort and safety when cruising offshore. A major feature of the 425 is the easy and safe access from both sides of the transom with more than adequate safety rails and handholds. The large aft deck area has a door at the aft end for added security. There is also a large dinette seating area with table for outside dining. Teak type decking on the bathing platform and deck steps is provided as standard, together with a boarding ladder.

Command Position

Ergonomically well laid out, the console design permits ease of monitoring the engine systems and navigation equipment, together with an excellent view. Weather protection is provided by the large windscreen. A two part hood protects the cockpit area and helmstation.


The essential part of any serious cruising boat. Broom have condensed
many years of experience and developed a practical and attractive
work area. The galley is complete with stainless steel sink unit with hot
and cold mixer tap. There is a three-burner hob unit with oven and grill,
cutlery drawer, cupboards, electric refrigerator, as well as an opening
window and ventilator.


The spacious saloon has corner seating and a table to portside with chairs being made portable to provide two comfortable dining seats at the main table. Opposite the settee is an attractive sideboard with cabinets, and provision for a T.V. Opening windows are provided in the saloon.
