Its my first post, though I have been a viewer of the site for some years now ....  

After a year or so selling the old boat and trying to find something nice to replace it which ticked all our boxes we find our selves facing a rather less than secure financial outlook and rather thought a Broom 29 offers all we need to see us through.

Has anyone owned one and feel able to comment on their general usability particularly how they handle without a bow thruster ? We plan to return to the Thames but other waterways are available and a year or two on the Broads is part of our gameplan - depends on where we buy it from as we will want to sample the area for a while !

Thought of trying the owners club but they are not open to stray queries - cannot post unless a member - cannot join unless I own a Broom !  Tinhat

Hi Loggo and welcome, cannot help you personally, but perhaps this link would help, although there is a cost £6.95. Good luck.  Smile

Thanks guys. I am familiar with Craigs list and have viewed it often, and yes, I have printed the "road test" from YBW (bit pricey though !) What I am hoping to hear is a personal experience or two - even from people who have hired a '29 - just to give me a clue what to look for.  dunce

Thanks for your comments folks. Have just discovered that our "target" boat has a sea toilet rather than a holding tank. Naievely thought that as it had a BS cert. it would have a holding tank. Does anyone have any idea of a typical cost to fit one to a Broom 29 ? And, while out of the water how much would a bow thruster cost to fit ?

Hi

I don't know the layout of the 29 but if you have these items fitted professionally the likely cost will be £1000-£1200 for the holding tank and nearer to £3000 for the bow thruster.

regards, Yorkie
