These boats delivers a high level of cruising comfort and elegance in a hull and rig combination that is suitable for extended cruising and living aboard. At 20,000 pounds displacement, the 435 is a moderately heavy cruising cat. Her hulls are solid glass below the waterline (cored above) and have a thickness of a half an inch or more.
The 435's design is sleek, her decks are wide, clean, and flat, and her salon is low and both aero- and hydrodynamic, presenting few surfaces for green water and wind to gain a purchase. The Corian countertops in the U-shaped galley to port are offset by light-oak joinerwork. The seating and dining area to starboard is finished in Alacantara fabric. The aft-facing chart table abuts the main bulkhead, enjoying excellent visibility and stacks of natural light from the large expanse of windows above.
The Broadblue design concept deviates from current convention as her cockpit is relatively narrow, with wide decks on either side, preventing significant volumes of seawater from staying aboard when making passages in rough seas. The elegant cockpit table nestles into the starboard curved settee and is, thus, out of the way. The two-person, cushioned, adjustable-height helm station, to port, has a double-concave backrest that provides a snug perch for driver and crew.
If you are looking for a well equipped luxury Catamaran that is ready to cruise then the Broadblue 435 should be at the top of your list! The 435's design is sleek, her decks are wide, clean, and flat, and her salon is low and both aero- and hydrodynamic, presenting few surfaces for green water and wind to gain a purchase. In the cockpit are three laz-arettes; lockers for propane, chain, and other gear are just aft of the trampoline. The designers thoughtfully added 18 inches to the lower aft steps, above the waterline, and added handrails on the insides of the boarding platforms to help crew step in and out of a dinghy.
The striking bows, along with the specially designed bridgedeck, are the result of thirty years of design experience. This design allows the boat to sail over the waves with less water over the bow creating a dry, smooth, seakindly ride with sparkling sailing performance. These are quality boats that will retain their value.
