better view,

cosy aft deck under full canopy, lockers under aft seat,

Dash with sun covers removed, the walnut effect dash panels are in good shape.

note the nice Stainless foot rail, there is one aft of the seat unit also.

very recent canvas work.

Factory extra the side ladder sits in hooks each side at gates. Note the long stand off leg so it sits at a decent angle

General arrangement NEARLY ! no interior helm to port, this is all extra lockers on a standard boat,

very few boats had the interior helm. those that did virtually never used them.

fore cabin and first glimpse at the more modern design of the all new soft furnishings including head boards and

berth surrounds etc.,.Generous berths, 6'5" down the middle , access locker forward to chain, BIG locker under berth forward and easy access to Bow prop under floor

allow access to bilge, and shower box pumps etc

drinks below,

loose coffee table can be tethered to the floor with screw points each end

standard daily check hatches.. Looking from port across to starboard

here looking forward, as with most Brooms, The whole floor will lift,  all loose bound carpets, and there are no fastenings in the floor boards,

so to have an engine fully exposed is just a few minutes only and a full engine can be removed through the purpose made saloon exit hacth over head, Not that you want to, but the boats were built with future use in mind as they last so long ! Somebody will want and engine out one day, and even if it is just for cleaning and sorting things, some owners have them lifted as it is an afternoons work to remove them to a bench in a workshop, .. why not ? and clean the engineroom while they are out !

Sound proofing is an upgrade from standard, that foam has a high density Barrier in it and is approx 3" thick.

looking aft down aft cabin entry, you can just see under the steps that she has been on the part one register in her time, now lapsed, but useful non the less.

fabulous aft berth, again all new surrounds and back boards super smart, great lockers and note door left of shot is to aft heads

note the heater and dehumidifier not included but keep her warm and dry all the time.
