Aft end, You can see the "Glinting sun here, the boat is beautifully clean!, Extra Teak (real) on the aft platform and steps, note the extra auxillary pad to stb, decent liferaft in cradle ,
There are fender baskets round the boat to cope with 8 of these big fenders, two opening hatches into the aft cabin, flood it with light and air when open.
stb side deck, great rails all round the boat, no step in the deck run so she is a delight for crew to walk round, Note reflection
another good factory fitted extra, side gates/ ladders, Shown slid forward, it can be dropped down instead and with the fold out legs becomes a good side boarding ladder,
note the owners have a Large Knotted rope, hanging from top rails , this helps getting aboard without heaving on the staunchions so reducing stress on the sockets
forward deck, lots of static vents, and two hatches, note the deck waste tank pump out down by cleat
slef loading bow roller, with Delta anchor is standard, approx 30 m anchor cable, also note the Bollard to take weight off windlass or attach to if at swinging mooring,
deck switches to windlass as well as Dash.
FULL engine hatch over saloon, Not that you hope to get an engine out , but it is "easy" on any Broom, I have seen this happen in an afternoon, and some owners choose to return the boat to broom after 20 years or so, take engines out, and have a clean and re paint, etc, Not a cheap way to build a boat, but this was why owners, engineers, surveyors etc, love dealing with Brooms, practical well built boats.
aft deck , you can walk a full lap of the deck with ease,
chain gate to aft access steps on port side,

The factory altered the forward locker to ease stowage of a folded dinghy,
Fabulous Helm position, tall glass screens mean you are looking through glass not plastic..note the folding canopy is easy to open and fold back giving the boat a very different feel
Its easy enough that you actually bother! the electronic screens are covered by a hinge over door/cover,
The recent canopy has been modified so that a 6" slot remains open across the width, which is great in hot weather,
easy read angles on instruments and a good size Paper chart area,
Hot air outlet at your feet, and note the three seats are adjustable on tracks,
