This beautiful 40' MJM 40z is a great example of the consistent quality that MJM is able to deliver. When one combines the thoughtful design with the Downeast Red hull this boat becomes a true head-turner. Her hull engineering and composition result in a strong hull with a low center of gravity. This translates into greater stability and sea-worthiness which makes for her impressively comfortable ride. Moreover, with the effortless control that the twin 370 HP IPS500 pod drives deliver and you receive an outstanding result. Furthermore, these state-of-the-art pod drives make for eco-smart performance as well. This is demonstrated by this boat being able to cruise at 32 knots with an impressive fuel economy. The considerate planning continues in the layout with features such as a flush-deck from cockpit to helm. This yacht's current owner (and her only owner so far) is knowledgeable and experienced in yachting which makes for this boat to be in stunning condition and ready for her next owner!

Description and Notes
The primary design goal for the 40z was to create a 40 foot powerboat that would handle like a 30-footer at idle speeds in tricky docking situations. The Volvo-Penta IPS joystick control technology makes this goal a reality. The IPS system works with twin pod drives under the hull. When conventional twin-engine controls are in neutral, command can be given to a single joystick which takes over with fingertip control. There are no thrusters. Through a unique computer program, each drive unit is independently operated in terms of direction, rpm and forward-reverse gear. This system works far more intuitively than conventional twin shaft drives or joystick/thruster operated jet drives.
- Side-opening doors (P&S) overcome a common problem, getting aboard or getting off when handling docklines. Furthermore, the deck of the cockpit has been designed to be the same height as a floating dock to improve ease of boarding.
- Single-level seating for as many as 15 at cocktail time or for a family picnic. Additionally, this flush deck extends from cockpit to helm.
- Roll-up side/aft curtains and fully-opening, automatic windshields to regulate airflow in the pilothouse to suit conditions.
- Large (60x78) island berth and separate shower in owner stateroom.
- One owner's cabin along with a convertible dinette option.
- The 40z can be trucked overland without penalty. Width doesn’t exceed 12 feet and height on a trailer is less than 13.5 feet.
