Now the speed and shoal draft of outboards and the comforts of a yacht are paired in a smart new series from MJM Yachts. Our fast Doug Zurn design, and the lightweight strength of our advanced epoxy construction come together to make 50 mph speed possible in a yacht that carries all the comforts and all the seakeeping of a true bluewater cruiser. Add the power and control of Mercury and this is boating at its finest.
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.
