TYLER BROOM UNNAMED 58FT SEMI-TRAD
BROOM ARE A WELL known name in the world of river cruisers, but this is their first foray into narrowboats. And they’re off to a good start by selecting a shell by Tim Tyler, one of the best in the business. It’s a 58ft semi-trad and has been fitted out with a reverse layout using oak with cream laminate cabin sides and ceilings.
The galley, which is at the stern, extends down one side of the boat. It has Corina work tops and a stainless steel sink with a built-in water filter. On the opposite side there’s a two-person dinette. The saloon has a fixed sofa, which doubles as a larger, L-shaped dinette. Two good sized square stools are provided for use as extra seating, or as the infill to convert the sofa into a guest bed. There’s also a built-in stereo system with speakers.
The shower room is an off-corridor design and has a rectangular shower, a white basin, towel rail, and a Thetford cassette loo. The cabin, at the bow, has an in-line bed and lots of wardrobes, some with mirrored doors.
The boat is powered by a Nanni 43hp engine and there’s also a bow thruster. There are three 165Ah domestic batteries and a Victron 3kW inverter.
These boats are intended to be sold as a spec fit-out, with just a few options available.
