Omega Of Broom : Beautifully Restored Harrison Butler Designed Classic
Andrew Gair took on Omega of Broom in 2016, and has since made good use of Harry King's Boatyard at Pin Mill on the River Orwell to keep her in tip-top condition. She's certainly a head turner !
The really intricate restoration was done by a previous owner, Roy Aldworth, who went on to restore another Harrison Butler designed classic, Mischief III.
A super picture of Omega of Broom boat under sail featured in the Summer 2014 edition ot the HBA Journal.
Originally called Omega, the 'of Broom' was added in 1958.
