Award and sales for Brundall boat builder

A Brundall boat firm has been nominated for an industry award for its new luxury motor cruiser.

Broom Boats has been nominated for the IPC Marine Media Motor Boat of the Year Award.

The nomination is for its new Broom 370, a luxury 38ft motor cruiser, which was launched at Southampton International Boat Show earlier this year.

Seven Broom 370s have already been sold this year with deliveries in France, Holland and the UK. Last year the construction arm of the firm was put through voluntary liquidation, but the firm was taken over by investors Mark Garner and Akis Chrisovelides and started building boats again.
