Hi all
Just wondering if you can help me clear somthing up....
Were Ocean 30's built by Brooms?? Ive seen them advertised as Broom Ocean 30's, just Ocean 30's and occassionally Moonraker 30's.

Anyone know if they were ever built by Moonraker??

Its been bugging me for a while, does anyone know the truth??

Ive took some photos today of some...

Tom

Here's the first 'Lady Thambo', which says on the side 'Ocean 30', its the more common aft-cockpit model, in immaculate order.

then i found this tatty single Aft-cabin model, she's been unused for the last 10 years, a real shame when considering in nice order they can sell for up to £30k. The side panel on this one says 'Moonraker', which i thought was her name, until i saw 2 others with Moonraker on the side, then saw one for sale advertised as a Moonraker 30??

and finally, out the corner of my eye i spotted this very rare full aft-cabin model, the only other one i've seen is on craigs database. I dont think they made many of these. Looks quite nice though.

Any one got any more pictures of Ocean 30's??

As far as i am aware, they were built by brooms and bells(moonraker). The Brooms version was marketed as an ocean 30, and generally speaking were twin engined, althogh there may well have been a few specials. The moonraker's were fitted out at bells and marketed as moonrakers. There were also a large number fitted out by hire companies on the broads, I think the moulding is an aquafibre, certainly the ocean 37 which was built by brooms is an aquafibre moulding.

Hi Tom
All Ocean 30 and Moonraker 30 were moulded by Aquafibre. The Ocean 30 was built and marketed by Aquafibre hence the Broom connection. The Broom 30 hull is identical to the Ocean 30.

This interesting site about Moonrakers should answer some of your questions.

Apart from the earliest Ocean 30's which had Timber tops their were at least 3 Mks a four berth, a Five berth with an aft quarter cabin and a final version where the head was moved forward between the front lower cabin and the Saloon The Broom 30 was the 'Skipper'

Tom,

All my photos of Ocean 30s are on the Ocean Style gallery in the database.

Regarding the Ocean 30 with a complete aft cabin, I think there were only ever 2 made (someone may know different) - these were both for Porter and Haylett as Tinaline and Ritaline (later named Tinaline 2), one had brown side pods, the other blue - this looks like the blue one which was Rambler until 2004 - where did you see her, if she's left the Broads I'll need to update the database

I do have a photo of both of them moored together, because when private both were owned by the same family - two of the photos in the gallery are in fact this photo split in two (I don't suppose Bob will object to my posting it here)

Thanks for the quick response guys. I allways wondered why there were so many on the Ouse, now i know there was a dealer that explains it.

Has anyone got any pictures of any old ones in hire or brouchures?

Only 14 Mk3's, ill have to try and find them!!

Tom

One of the earliest Ocean 30's with Wooden cabin sides was kept at Neatishead for many years although I'm not sure it is still there
