Epoxy has three to five times the flexural strength of polyester or vinyl ester resins making MJM Yachts stronger, longer lasting, more agile, seaworthy, fuel-efficient and more fun to drive.
That’s why MJM Yachts’ founder Bob Johnstone selected experts in advanced laminate construction as building partners for MJM Yachts from the very first boat, an MJM 34z built in 2002.
Now nearly 300 yachts later this process is still used to produce MJM Yachts that are recognized by global standards organizations as well as experienced boaters everywhere. MJMs are built with wet, pre-preg materials with vacuum molding and post-cure oven processes. Epoxy resin is 25 percent stronger than the polyester resin used in most boatbuilding, with higher elongation properties for greater durability. Epoxy also has superior moisture resistance.
The methods and materials employed here create stronger, yet lighter hulls that require less horsepower than the competitors and enjoy far better fuel efficiency getting up to 2X the miles per gallon of similar boats at speeds of 25 knots. MJMs are also built for longevity. Combined with the timeless good looks of the patented design, MJMs enjoy excellent value retention on the resale market.
