Broom 42CL(2002)

Sat at her home berth on the Thames, beautifully clean and polished May 2017

Type Fast semi-displacement from The board of Andrew Wolstenholme, the Broom 38CL was a very well received design, and the owners started to ask for the next one up the ladder, So broom commissioned Andrew to come up with the 42, which was also a roaring success, Fine entry with medium vee sections to a Hard Chine, with flatter sections aft , Threequarter length keel, deep enough to offer protection to stern gear, and excellent directional stability at slow speed, Very able sea boat, Dimensions LOA , 42'6" (12.95m) Deck length 39'9" (12.1m) LWL 37'8" (11.49m) Beam 13'11" (4.24m) Draught 3'6" (1.06m) Air Draught mast down, 10'10" (3.3m) weight appro 13 Tons or 11,973 Kg Dry ..

They should give her 26 knots or so, max when clean and cruise nicely at 20+ knots

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.

Broker's Comments

What a wonderful example of these great cruising boats from Andrew Wolstenholm, Solid and quality Finish from Broom boats under Mr Broom, high gloss Maple ( an expensive extra does keep her looking bright and clean and "modern", I have deleivered many in some pretty challenging conditions , including beaucette Marina in a six NE with ebbtide.. bad idea.. but needs must, and she proved hersef a very able sea boat on all occassions with mile eating cruising abilty with easy cruise when clean of 20+ knots.. or slow up and lazy at 18 or so. Great boats, and this is a great example. DO wathc the VIDEOWALKS
