Forward Cabin:

The forward cabin provides 2 large single berths in a 'V' arrangement. With 2 small side windows and opening roof hatch, plenty of light is allowed to enter this cabin. This cabin also includes drawer storage under the berths, 12 volt lighting, reading lights, single half-length wardrobe, mirror and a roof vent providing further fresh air ventilation.

Forward Head:

The forward head set to the starboard. The fully self contained locker with manually flushing toilet to holding tank (with holding tank level gauge and tank to sea converter switch), moulded sink with hot and cold mixer tap, 12 volt lighting, a cabinet and mirror.


The galley (to starboard and just forward of the main saloon). Due to its open nature, its shares the same light and air from the main saloon. The galley is well-equipped with a large fridge/freezer, 4 burner hob, large double oven and grill and microwave. Also 2 round sinks with covers feed by hot and cold mixer tap, a clever corner bin, set into the work surface. The galley has plenty of storage available in upper and lower cupboards for all the essentials.


The dinette is situated opposite the galley and has a large ‘U’ shaped sofa area,
upholstered in the same material as the saloon. There is ample space for 4/6 adults to sit around the mahogany table, which is height adjustable so it can double as a functional support which an infill cushion can fasten to, making it into a double bed. The addition of 12 volt lighting and further fresh air ventilation, this is a very comfortable area to work and relax in. There is also a window running the length of the dinette area, below which is found shelving space for ornaments etc and drinks/glasses holder.

Main Saloon:

The main saloon can be accessed via 2 sliding doors, one of which is situated to port and allows access from the side deck; the second from the cockpit next to the helm and down four steps. Seating is in the form of a large and comfortable ‘U’ shaped sofa. With storage drawer underneath. There is also a mahogany coffee table which complements the mahogany interior. Because of the Broom 38’s large and stylish side windows and sweeping lower screen, plenty of natural light is also allowed into the main saloon. Side windows have curtains while the front windows have blinds. Opposite the seating you have the drinks cabinet, cupboard with drinks holders, television cabinet and shelving space. Engine access is under floor and steps to aft cabin. 

New curtains fitted throughout Dinette and Main Saloon. Upholstery is blue Alcantara which is in good condition.

Aft Cabin:

The aft cabin is 3 steps down from the main saloon, before the door to the cabin is a small locker to Stb and power control board. The main feature of the aft cabin is its large double island bed, which allows 3 sides to be easily walked around and has the benefits of a full dresser and 2 wardrobes. It also has plenty of drawer and cupboard space. Light is provided by tasteful ceiling lights, matching reading lights and natural light through both large opening windows to port and starboard and both opening rear hatches mounted in the transom each side of the bed head. These hatches double as escape hatches as well as windows and Broom has cleverly incorporated pull-across blinds to black them out, or pull-across flyscreens to allow ventilation in the summer without the problem of insects.

Aft En-Suite Head and Shower:

The second head is situated in the aft cabin to port and has a toilet with electric flush (tank to sea converter switch), moulded sink with hot and cold mixer tap, razor point, mirror and small window. The shower is a separate compartment, on starboard side is a fully contained water-tight locker with wall mounted shower unit with height adjustable head, also has the benefit of a seat plus ceiling ventilation, 12 volt lighting and a window, making it an extremely functional and comfortable area to use.

Main Cockpit Area:

The cockpit has helm to starboard with all main controls and gauges, large chart table and 2 bucket style seats for helmsman and navigator. Behind the helm you have 'U' shaped seating with table. The aft deck and helm are protected from the elements by a large, sturdy but easily moveable 2 piece hood system, which is supported by the lowering fibre glass radar arch and stainless steel rails. Other features of the aft deck and helm are waterproof lockers and 12 volt lighting and the cockpit floor has teak decking. The interior of the boat is accessed from this point via a large perspex lockable sliding door.
