Broom to fit out narrowboats
Norfolk manufacturer collaborates with Tyler Wilson on new range
Two established names in British boatbuilding have joined forces to create a new range of narrowboat.
Tyler Wilson, based in Sheffield, and Broom Boats, based in Norfolk, are creating a range of Tyler Broom boats designed specifically for inland waterway and canal cruising. The boats will be marketed and sold by Tingdene Marinas and Boat Sales.
The very first product of this joint partnership is a 58ft narrow beam semi-traditional stern model. The steel work is carried out by Tyler Wilson before the boat is then moved to Broom’s Brundall base for fit-out, with the yard designing the interiors as well as handling the engineering. The idea is to give them a lighter, fresher, more contemporary interior than traditional narrowboats in the hopes they will appeal to a new audience who may not have considered one before.
Matthew Harvey, managing director of Broom Boats commented, “The Tyler Broom product range marks an exciting new venture for us. By utilising Tyler Wilson’s expertise with the steelwork, we can concentrate our core boatbuilding and engineering skills on building a fantastic boat.”
Neil Mallandain, sales director of Tingdene Marinas and Boat Sales added, “We have worked with Broom for many years, and are delighted to be collaborating with them on this project”.
Broom boats have also recently taken on the construction and fitout of English Harbour Yachts’ range of cruisers.
