Others have mentioned the same, that broadside is not nearly as good as the AI firing, so to counter this, simple turn OFF fire at will and turn it back on again when you're in a position to fire. It acts very much like the broadside this way, but without the narrow corridor of fire.

I've used it quite effectively in keeping European hands off India.

Broadside is only useful to force fire while initiating boarding. For some reason the ship won't always fire on its own after giving the boarding-command. Once you are connected to the other ship even that won't work though.
