MJM's 35z puts the power outside to maximum effect. MJM's 35z puts the power outside to maximum effect. As with all MJM models, the 35z is a clean, contemporary design with styling DNA born Down East. Zurn’s hulls are variable-warped Vs, flat aft and sharp forward with fineentries. They’re designed to hack through the rough stuff, to stay dry and to go fast. According to MJM, the 35z tops out north of 43 knots. It has an angled-up “quiet chine” forward to reduce slap when the boat is at rest. Conceived primarily as a day boat, the 35z also sports tasteful, functional accommodations for a couple on a weekend cruise. According to Zurn, the cockpit—thesocial center of the boat—is the same size as the one on the builder’s 40z. An optional Bimini top can provide cover from the elements in the after sections. MJM incorporated some features from other models into the 35z and added new ones; look for electrically operated windscreens, roll-up Strataglass or sliding-glass side windows, side boardingdoors, joystick docking control, autopilot and GPS station-keeping. The boat is also setup to house an optional Seakeeper gyrostabilizer. The yacht has attractive, comfortable accommodations for a couple for a weekend orlonger aboard.
