About this Boat

We are delighted to be able to offer this delightful  BROOM CAPRICORN. She is a exceptional example of a quality British built sports boat, offering a cruising speed of 6 knots and a max speed of  40 knots! This boat has a rather interesting past as she was barn stored for fifteen years until her current owner (a skilled boat engineer) found her and has painstakingly restored her to her former original glory. This consisted of the following: Complete leg rebuild, Full oil and filter change, Fuel tank drain and steam clean, New fuel lines, New injectors, New plugs, New cover 2023 and a full engine service in 2024!

The  BROOM CAPRICORN has been recently voted one of the most stylish British built speed boats of the last fifty years and it is clear to see why! Now you have the chance of owning this meticulously restored British classic.

“Thank you James for your speedy response and getting my boat sold so soon. Excellent service!”

Mr Lucas, Jakari

“James knew his game! Having observed many similar boats remain unsold elsewhere I was a little dubious about ours being sold, i fully relied upon James who informed me throughout the process, estimated the value and she sold very soon after. He held firm on our agreed price, following the sale, Lynne took over and everything was a smooth transition. Top quality! Without doubt i would recommend Waterside. ”
