2007 34z

Love the boat for both day trips and cruising. Ours is the sedan version so it is very dry in most sea states underway, even with the isinglass rolled up. Better ergonomics and storage than our previous Hinckley 36.

2017 43z

Having an extensive history with J-Boats sailing yachts, my transition into the MJM line of power boats was like visiting an old friend. I’ve always been a fan of the functional aesthetic the Johnstone’s bring to their designs. Exterior maintenance is minimized without sacrificing the boat’s fantastic looks. Build quality instills confidence, which goes a long way when on open water in rough conditions. My 43z handles like a well designed sports car, rather than a heavy displacement “floating living room”. The Carolina “V” bow allows the boat to get up on plane quickly and the lighter than typical displacement, along with the hard chine hull, keeps the boat on top of the waves, rather than smashing through them. Everyone stays dry and, with the built in Seakeeper Gyro system, the low center of gravity helps keep the boat from pitching from side to side.
The boat’s helm station, seating, galley and other creature comforts are easy to use, comfortable and reliable. We’ve spent many nights in harbor, either with guests or just the two of us. I’ve seen fancier boats but I can’t imagine wanting anything more than what my MJM delivers.

Looking forward to more fun times aboard this winter/spring season in Florida’s waters.

2008 34z

I am the third owner of Inisfail a34z which I found on the West Coast in February of 2020 and shipped to Washington, DC in April of 2020. I had spent considerable research and time looking for a 34z (almost one year). I have previous owned express cruiser style boats for years and nothing compares to an MJM. Her classic look, single powerful Diesel engine and fit and finish, make her a standout on the Potomac River in Washington, DC. I’m stopped all the time from boaters, tourists and passerby’s while anchored on the Potomac River or tied up in Georgetown. The comments are always what a beautiful boat, what brand is she. Yes she is beautiful but also a great performance boat. I couldn’t be happier with my MJM and as of this writing the third week of October 2021 I have put 330 hrs on her.

2009 40z

After much research for the best built express yacht, we were fortunate to become the second owners of 40z hull #5 in 2014. No other vessel has brought us so much pleasure, adventure, and family bonding. Her entertainment value is off the charts. Whether day-tripping or settling in on a long cruise; it is comforting to know that you have the right vessel for whatever sea state or weather condition develops. The low COG, open windshield, great sight lines, and high performance handling of this boat creates the feel of a smaller, open cockpit boat, but with all the stability and comforts of a high performance yacht. There was only one choice for us to make for the next boat: Build a 53zi.

2018 35z

I’ve had so many enjoyable moments on my MJM 35z. What an amazing boat! Superb handling, plenty of storage, super comfortable and fun to drive. The MJM sales team was extremely helpful in guiding me through the whole process.
