It looks like a Broom 30 to me. My father designed it and my sister owned one for a time. The Sancere is a sedan cruiser with large rear sliding doors if I remember correctly.

As has been said, Bondon"s Sancerre fleet were Sedans with rear access.( I moored there from 1985 to 1994).
I believe Rod Russell did not take over the yard until the  1990's so would not have been involved with their build.
The picture of the craft under and125's post is undoubtedly a Broom hull, but the rest is guesswork unless Brooms themselves could shed some light.
Looks a very nice boat though

Hello Malcolm, I know it is a bit special and it was finished off at Sancerre as it bares there name engraved in the control  panel however twin 45hp mermaids and the steamed trim above the galley to saloon doorway definitely look like Sancerre but the tiger striped furnishing panels definitely broom 30.  Around 1980 when she was built. I was told that broom was ending production of the 30 in fact in and around that time there were very many companies had problem including the bigger ones could it be a part built broom that ray bondon bought and finished it to a special order?? By the way  the boat never had the outside steering when it was built.  And the cabin was pink. Could this have been the one made for your sister?? If so I know I have one very special boat. Best regards. Andy

Hi Steve I thought at first it was a special boat because of the two mermaid 45 hp  engines with Borg warner 71c direct drive boxes that alone makes it very different , and must have been put together by an excellent engineer . Brooms normally used Perkins but did do special orders as well. Being an engineer myself  I love the setup. I have managed to find one of the owners and he gave me plenty of information to start my tracing it’s history. As I do with all my boats. Best regards. Andy

The one my sister had was a folding wheelhouse version.
Your boat could have been built by Brooms and finished or altered by Bondons.

Thanks Malcolm , I will look up the hull number it should be on the back end somewhere then get in touch with broom and marinetech  and see what they come up with, it will be interesting to find out , I know it has spent most of its life on the Thames but a long way to go yet . Again many thanks for you help and I will keep putting bits on here that I have found out about her.

Hi just an update on my boat. It spears that it is what it said in the boat licence document , Broom Sancerre 30 . There were two that were bought and finished off by Ray Bondon  Daniel at marinetech gave me that info, and suggested I got in touch with Tom dickenson of broom for a new sunroof , as they were done at broom. After speaking to Tom about  the time these were built in the middle of the recession it could have been any reason for the two boats to be sold . The outcome is that they can supply a new sunroof for her and once I give him the HIN number he will check all the broom and aquafibre records , from that he can tell who the boat went to and what stage of build it was in, so I should be able to get the HIN over the weekend and hope to get the rest of the story . Mine has spent most of its time on the Thames and south coast it would be nice to hear from the owner of the other one. Many thanks to all the help and pointers  it has made the first half of my research very quick and easy and I will updating when and what info I get. Best regards. Andy

Hi Steve I think you are right. I have been in touch with marine tech and broom , and just have a little more research and then will be able to confirm my  outcome mostly through the posts on this forum . I have an email from broom confirming a factory works plate in a photo I sent secondly marine tech confirmed it was one of two finished at Sancerre. As it was built over the resession. In the early 80s it is not  quite clear what state of build it was at broom. When it was sold it is only a guess that it went to Sancerre to be engined and finished off. Other suggestions  about it been a  the dash board says sancerre cruisers. Although it is a broom dashboard  my hin number will apparently  find everything out  but whilst the wheather the COVID have bean hammering us this year I still have not found it however a couple of days ago Iwa’s feeling over the blue stripe on the stearn and found something  under the paint about  1” long and 1/4” deep just raised above the gel coat. So maybe this is the number on the starboard side of the boat were it should be.   A long journey , but hopefully I will get this looked a has I have a survey due in this month so will clean off the paint while in dry dock
