MJM Yachts Announce New 36z
Following up on the successful launch of the 40z in 2009 (Next available hull is #15), MJM announces introduction of the Doug Zurn designed 36z which makes many desirable features of the 40z available to owners who don’t plan extended living aboard. Among these are twin Volvo D3, 5 cylinder, 170 hp or 220 hp diesel engines… these are the same very efficient and quiet new generation engines being used in the luxury Volvo VC70 station wagon in Europe.
At idle speeds they can be operated with the Volvo-Penta Joystick control (a la IPS). Also featured are the new OceanX titanium and ceramic coated sterndrives with counter-rotating props which allow the 36z to be moored in 17″ of water with drives raised. A single level cockpit/pilothouse makes for gracious entertaining especially with the easy access side-opening cockpit doors that are on the same level as floating docks and dinghys. Orders are being taken now by MJM Dealers with the first boat being available for the Newport International Boatshow in September. Both Downeast and Express models are offered.
