The Broom 42 is designed and constructed as a medium range offshore motor cruiser, however the folding radar arch enables the boat to pass under most bridges if cruising the River Thames.

Lady Melanie offers a very high specification including bow and a new stern thruster, 4kw generator and Raymarine navigation package.

The aft cockpit canopy cover, large sun pad and underwater mood lighting are recent additions.

Internally the contemporary design offers smart stylish decor with neutral carpets, curtains/blinds and cream leather upholstery.
