About MJM Yachts
MJM Yachts LLC was founded in 2002 by Bob Johnstone, who 25 years earlier had co-founded J Boats, Inc., the leading brand of performance sailboats worldwide with over 12,000 sailing. His focus on seaworthiness, performance and ease-of-handling carry over into MJM Yachts. The 29z, 34z, 40z and new 36z (for 2011) burn approximately half the fuel for boats their size while cruising at 25+ knots. This “Made in the USA” innovation allows the 130+ owners of MJM Yachts to significantly lower their operating costs, while having a boat that’s more fun to drive on a daily, spur-of-the-moment basis.
Patented Good Looks
The “Z’s” are beautiful at the dock and under way. Yacht designer Doug Zurn (the “Z”) did such an artistic job creating MJM’s unique appearance that a US Patent has been issued on the design. The 29z, 34z, 36z and the 40z features are reminiscent of some all-time favourite boats: the flared bow and reverse sheer of a Carolina Sportfisherman; the modified deep-V hull, sharp entry, dual lifting strakes, chine flat and 18-degree transom deadrise of the best Offshore Performance boats; and the open functional pilothouse of a Maine Lobsterboat.
Strong Offshore Construction
MJMs may be the first Class B “Offshore” sized yacht built to exceed draft CE Mark (ISO) structural requirements for Class A Ocean going use. Mark Lindsay’s Boston BoatWorks is one of the few builders in America with over 25 years experience in high-tech vacuum-bagged, post-oven-cured, epoxy/Kevlar/cored laminates.
Twice the Fun at Half the Fuel
Twice the Fun at Half the Fuel has been MJM’s mantra from the outset. Unlike automobiles, this goal can be achieved building boats without sacrificing style, comfort or performance. The answer lies in higher quality construction. Competing powerboat builders use dated, low cost and/or heavy fibreglass construction methods. This left the door open for MJM Yachts to apply Formula One racing car/custom racing sailboat technology to build stronger and lighter powerboats having less drag.
VIDEO: A sunrise helicopter video shoot of the MJM 40z in early October shows this great looking power boat going through its paces on Narragansett Bay and on to Rhode Island Sound, Mackerel Cove and past Castle Hill to the small basin at Fort Adams. Here you can see how the IPS stern drives and the fingertip control of the joystick makes docking and maneuvering this fine vessel a piece of cake!
VIDEO: Bob Johnstone, founder of MJM Yachts, demonstrates how simple it is to maneuver the 40z in tight docking situations. The ergonomic placement the Volvo-Penta IPS joystick and the 360 degree unobstructive sightlines are two examples of the thought that has gone into this new design.
