Broom to fit out nar­row­boats

Norfolk man­u­fac­turer col­lab­o­rates with Tyler Wil­son on new range

Motorboat & Yachting - - News -

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.
