Broker's Comments

Brooms have a reputation as immensely sea-worthy craft, With her large interior, the 37 Continental is an immensely capable and comfortable cruiser both inland and offshore.

Twin v-berths in the forward cabin and two singles in the aft cabin provide permanent berths for four, whilst the settee in the saloon converts to another double berth. Power is provided by twin 145hp turbo-charged Perkins 6.354 diesels.

This particular Broom Continental looks a well looked after craft, but could do with some modernisation.

As a long term cruiser live-aboard, we think she represents excellent value.
