Introducing the "Fun-to-Drive" Fifty Footer!
The NEW MJM 50z launches in the summer of 2014 with your choice of twin or triple Volvo-Penta IPS pod drives or Yanmar 8LV sterndrives. Both have real "get up and go"! Top speed can reach 40+ knots. Draft can be as little as 2.7 feet.
Seakeeper Gyro-Stabilizer is Standard Equipment
Without steadying sails, all powerboats roll...the MJM's less than most due to their low center of gravity. But, the single biggest opportunity for improving comfort afloat on a powerboat is to eliminate rolling. The 50z is the first yacht to offer this leading edge technology as standard equipment. Introduced 5 years ago, over 1,500 Seakeeper units are now in use worldwide, mostly on large custom motoryachts. The Seakeeper resists rather than reacts to the tendency of a boat to roll as it is spinning at 8,000 RPM to create it's stabilizing inertia. The vessel just doesn't roll and seems very solid without any herky-jerky motion.
Extraordinary Fuel Efficiency and Safety
50z fuel efficiency is 0.9 nm/pg at 25 knots. How? The 50z is built lighter and stronger in the USA of pre-preg epoxy, Kevlar, E-Glass and Corecell to exceed ISO Category A Ocean requirements ... the highest reating for seaworthiness issued by IMCI, the International Marine Certification Institute in Brussels. And, its sleek profile and low center of gravity make it more safe, seaworthy and fun to drive.
Easy-to-Operate by Couples
Large boats can be intimidating to operate. But, you can park a 50z solo, thanks to 360° visibility, joystick docking and a single level deck from the wheel aft to cockpit side-opening doors onto a floating dock.
Day-time Privacy for Friends & Family
The MJM 50z offers the best of both worlds: entertaining space for family picnics or cocktail parties on a single level deck. Plus, hospitable 24/7 staterooms for live-aboard cruising comfort-- not just sleeping cabins belowdecks.
50z staterooms include a desk/dressing table plus easy chair next to a large hull opening port for fresh air and view of the harbor… to read, write, chat on the phone or just have one’s own space.
Life aboard a new MJM 50z will be more enjoyable than on any other designs in the 48-50 foot class.
