Built 2005, By Broom Boats, a John Bennett design ( a progression from the acclaimed 44, The 450 is to my mind the best proportioned off all the Offshore boats from Broom, and her low centre of Gravity and wide stance make her a very able platform in some surprising seaways. Engines 2 x Volvo D9 500 hp, (These have run 830 Hours from new) , give 30 knots ability. and powerful offshore cruising. with 30 knots available and easy cruise at 20 knots .

Ashore at Shamrock quay, she had her engines given a full service just before she came out

Under water exhaust pods, reduce noise dramatically , the trim tabs have been polished clean, and new anodes fitted

Note the Big flat knuckle and second chine above.   which help the water get knocked away .

Ribeye Rib 260tl with yamaha 4 hp 4stroke Outboard , note the drop down wheels on the transom, very handy up the beach! the single point lift davit is a clever piece of kit, designed between Broom and Cooney / Simpson, it is a fixed "Fork" hinging about a pin at the base. at the forward end of the bathing platform, and lifted and dropped by a winch on a belt at the top of the unit.

This is strong, way to do dinghy handling amd takes the load further forward on the main boat, at the front of the Bathing platform rather than as usual levered off the transom. See below.

Broker's Comments This Broom has always been one of my Favourite boats . Solid build from Broom, Tick, quality warm cosy feel and finish, Tick, Excellent ability at sea in bad as well as pleasant conditions, Tick, great practical layout, with three good cabins, and ease of working the boat for crew.  THIS actual 450 is in truly superb order, and I hope you will watch the VIDEOWALK and better still come and look at her.
