What better way to spread the word of MJM's real performance than introduce the ultimate version of what many people aspire to own today… a versatile twin outboard design of 30-40 feet. MJM's stronger and lighter high-tech epoxy construction combined with a narrower (3.5:1 L:B ratio) modified deep-V hull is the answer. Real performance is not just speed. It's how easily available horsepower overcomes hull drag to attain desired speeds. A heavy barn door can go 50 mph pushed by a half dozen 350 HP outboards. In the 1960s, advent of cheap, heavy, mass produced fiberglass hulls and more powerful engines sidelined lessons of the past and continue to do so today. But, history has a way of repeating itself. "Lighter-narrower-stronger" with advanced technology gave Herreshoff designs an edge in the early 1900's and generated demand for Ray Hunt's Huntform powerboats in the late 1940's. These designs proved more seaworthy, efficient and faster with the less powerful engines at the time. Then along came MJM Yachts in 2003 to establish the brand as the leader in fuel efficient production diesel powered boats. It's now time for MJM Yachts to bring it's epoxy composite technology and design to outboards... it could be the wake up call for a world of better boats. See the comparative chart.
The chart shows MJM 35z's predicted top speed over 50 mph, similar to smaller open boats. This is achieved with twin rather than triple 300's of competing designs. Cruising range at 38 mph is another clue. The MJM 35z with 250 gallon fuel capacity gets better than 350 miles. Others lugging around 400 gallons get less. That defines real performance. For more
Owner benefits are significant: A smaller carbon footprint with 50-100% better fuel efficiency; more speed for horsepower applied; the luxury of an effortless driving and greater safety offshore thanks to a lower vertical center of gravity (VCG). In fact, the MJM 50z and MJM 40z, are the only two Down East designs of any size Certified ISO Category A Ocean. When it comes to a responsible boat purchase with optimum functionality, diversity of use and minimal long term investment risk, MJM Yachts go to the top of the class.

Sea Trialed to "0" Defects Before Delivery
MJM Yachts licensee, Boston BoatWorks (BBW), operating out of a brand new dedicated 35,000 sq. ft. plant in Charlestown MA is the one American boat builder, power or sail, having a 35+ year track record using advanced materials such as epoxy, Kevlar, carbon and Corecell. In their pursuit of excellence, BBW uses a proprietary wet epoxy pre-preg, vacuum-molding and oven post-cure method. Master Builder, Mark Lindsay has Olympic Medal, World Championship and America's Cup winning racing yachts to his credit because they're lighter, stronger and faster. All systems and finishes are "builder installs". Leaving nothing to chance, each MJM yacht is launched for sea trials before delivery. Tests of systems and calibration of instruments are conducted to ensure "0" defects. This extra attention to detail costs more. Customer service, quality of construction, top-of-the-line hardware and performance are not compromised to meet a price. The MJM Yachts philosophy is that today's buyer won't be satisfied with anything less than the absolute best in terms of timeless design, the latest technology, functionality and performance. Such a strategy offers the best guarantee for daily enjoyment and long term investment value.
MJM 50z - Award Winning 50 Footer
The MJM 50z is the most technologically advanced production motoryacht available... first worldwide to incorporate a Seakeeper gyro-stabilizer as standard equipment to eliminate 93% of roll in waves underway or at anchor. (see video here) and when introduced, 10 knots faster than other 48-50 foot down east designs, burning at 35 knot cruise what others burn at 25 knots. 50z was awarded "Best Down East Cruiser 50 Feet Plus" by editors of the 2014 AIM Magazine Group (Power & Motor Yacht, Passagemaker, Soundings, Soundings Trade, Yachts International and SAIL). In June 2015: 50z was the first yacht to include fully-opening power windshields for control of fresh air flow. Then for 2017 Model Year, a sliding safety glass side panel enclosure for the main bridge deck was introduced. 50z offers the best of both worlds: The underway fresh air comfort and visibility of the upper, all-weather flybridge deck of a larger motoryacht combined with ease of single person docking and maneuverability. And, those who have operated the 50z in all conditions claim it is the smoothest running and least fatiguing to operate they've experienced. For extended cruising or for a spectator boat to keep a dozen friends happy… that doesn't roll and will hold its position at the end of the starting line automatically, 50z is the best!
