The MJM 40z is a versatile performance downeast express with a ton of features and a sporty look that is hard to ignore. The 40z has a single-level layout with pilothouse, complete with seating for up to 15 people. Roll-up side and aft curtains and fully opening windshields tailor the enclosed space to suit the weather. One may want to open the windows to increase airflow during a hot, windless summer day, or close them and roll down the curtains during a rainy winter’s cruise. Optional sliding glass side windows, in lieu of the roll-up style, are also a great option for the Pacific Northwest. Other accommodations include a large island berth and separate shower in the forward master stateroom. The dinette converts to a guest cabin with curtains.
The build of the 40z is something to appreciate as well. The hull and deck are built with epoxy unidirectional tri-axial Kevlar/Corecell and Eglass. She has an ISO Category A “ocean” rating which isn’t all that common for a powerboat of this size and type. This design is also relatively light, and the 40z burns 21 gallons per hour at 25 knots, or 1.2 nautical miles to the gallon (with the standard twin 370 horsepower Volvo D6 diesel engines and IPS DuoProp 500 drives). She also has joystick controls.
What’s more, she is built to be trailered without penalty so you can explore inland waters via the highway system. The MJM 40z is available from Stan Miller Yachts for a base price of $1,075,000.
