There have been impressive technological and control advances with new outboards, particularly with Mercury. It was just a matter of time before MJM offered the wide world of center consoles, the advanced technological features and proven all-weather comfort and versatility of their larger Volvo Penta IPS powered 40z and 50z express cruisers... but now with the 50 mph speeds and fuel effciency only possible with stronger, lighter weight hulls built with advanced epoxy composites. The range of comfortable MJM cruising now extends to your favorite beach or gunkhole with the new MJM 35z and MJM 43z.
Carry on a normal conversation and experience the "no-roll" magic of its standard Seakeeper gyro. At day's end, dock the boat solo with its Volvo Penta IPS joystick and DPS hovering system. Take a harbor cruise with 16+ guests seated in comfort on its flush "flying" bridge deck. Burning 50 GPH at 35 knots, makes MJM 50z the best performer available. No wonder she was awarded the 2014 "Best Down East Cruiser 50 Feet Plus” by the Editors of Power & Motor Yacht, Passagemaker, Soundings, Soundings Trade Only, Yachts International and SAIL. You know they've seen everything!
That's owners talk. 40z is the only ISO Certified Category A Ocean vessel with a mid-30's cruisiing speed, that is narrow enough (12') and low enough on a trailer (13.5') to be trucked with just a "Wide Load" sign north for the summer and south for the winter. Or, back from Harbor Springs, if you decide to do a protracted Great Loop adventure with more time in the North Channel. All that in a boat that's easier to dock alone than a center console.
