MJM Yachts is extending its Z series with a triple-outboard-powered 43-footer.
The builder says three, 350 hp Mercury four-stroke Verados will offer a reported 35-knot cruise speed and 46-knot top-end. With the 43z’s 540-gallon fuel capacity, and considering a 10 percent reserve, range at cruise speed should be approximately 500 nautical miles, according to the builder.
The Downeast-style express cruiser’s modified deep-V hull form is based off the Doug Zurn-designed MJM 40z, which is offered with Volvo Penta IPS. MJM says that the outboards also reduce the vessel’s draft, making her appealing to skinny-water cruisers.
Like her siblings, the 35z, 40z and 50z, the 43z will be built for bluewater duty with epoxy composite construction. She’ll also have a Seakeeper gyro, ensuring a smooth ride in a seaway.
Options for the 43z include, “powered, fully-opening front windshields, roll-up Strataglass or sliding glass sides, all-weather air-conditioned cabins and bridge-deck and cockpit yacht Bimini capable of remaining up at cruising speeds.”
