Graham and June were looking for more space to accommodate their grandchildren (their last two boats have been named after them). They looked around the market with our help, but with their past enjoyment of Haines settled on the 400 without too much difficulty.
Graham certainly enjoys off-shore boating. Chris Cooper, our Sales Manager remembers being on board the Haines 35 in rough weather off Lowestoft. While Chris was turning whiter and whiter, Graham chuckled his way down the coast and, with a huge grin, said “This is more fun than my Aston Martin.”
The Haines 400 has attracted massive interest since it’s launch last year, including sales to as far away as Russia. There are a few build slots left for 2012 delivery but the factory is working near to capacity.


They ranged from a modest Shetland 4+2 to the striking luxury of a Broom 425. NYA Managing Director James Fraser puts their success down to hard work: “We put a lot into preparing boats, we advertise far and wide and we do everything we can to make a deal work. For example 12 of these sales involved part exchange.”
If you have a boat to sell, we should be talking.


With such a long history of boat building there are a great many used Brooms of all types still being enjoyed by loyal owners. Because of our extensive knowledge of past Broom models and, of course, our market expertise we always have an interesting selection of used Brooms on offer.
If you are looking for a specific Broom model we may know where to find one. At the same time a strong demand and continued success means we are always looking for more boats to sell.
