The launch of the43z, and its sistership the 35z, represent the most advanced level of a new and rapidly growing category ofboat, the Outboard Express Cruiser. Boaters who now own outboard-powered center consoles, but arelooking for more comfort underway and at anchor, can have both in MJM’s two new entries. The new 43zwith triple outboards features speeds to 50 mph, go-anywhere shoal draft, responsive handling and lowmaintenance. And that is now paired with those features MJMs are noted for: all-weather cruising comfortin an offshore capable, quality-built yacht. The result? Going to the beach becomes a far more pleasurableweekend experience. Anchored bow out, engines up, with stern beach anchor, the new 43z becomes avirtual beach cottage with all the comforts just a few feet from the sand.
Boaters will love the technological and control advances of the 43z’s triple Mercury 350 hp Verados withjoystick piloting, Skyhook, autopilot, low maintenance costs, easy pre-flight checks, and quiet running.This bundle of owner benefits is enhanced further by the roll-stopping, optional Seakeeper 5.
The longevity and quality of an inboard boat is often defined by engine life, while that of an outboard boatisn’t, because it’s no big deal to clamp on a new outboard. That means the epoxy composite 43z, builtlighter and “Boston Strong” by Boston BoatWorks, will hold its value and be around for a long time. AZurn- designed hull provides a smooth 3.5:1 length-to- beam running surface you will appreciate from themoment you take the helm until the moment someone pries your fingers from the wheel.
MJM 43z is the outboard version of what many say is the best all-round express cruiser on the market, theIPS-powered MJM 40z. To create the 43z, the proven hull was extended to 42’ 7” with a robust outboardpropulsion platform. LOA with engines and anchor roller is over 46 feet.
Like all MJMs, the 43z is well and functionally outfitted. On deck, all finishes are kept hose-and- gosimple. The Esthec decking feels great underfoot and while adding a warm styling element, adds nothingto maintenance requirements. There are side-boarding doors at floating dock height for easy access onto aflush deck that is without obstacles from transom to helm. Opening windshields, windows and hatches arethere for the times you want the wind in your hair. When enclosed, the bridgedeck has great loungingspace with a view from every seat—heat or air conditioned to your heart’s content.
Belowdecks, there is a good working galley for life aboard, a big comfy island berth for two and a head toport with separate shower with seat to starboard. Cabin decor is in classic Herreshoff style, accented incherry that will remind you fondly of the brand’s New England roots.
