The MJM 40z’s mission is to be a comfortable, high-performing, efficient cruiser that is easily handled by a couple. To that end, the Doug Zurn design has a single-level main deck and flush-deck boarding doors. Standard power is 370 hp Volvo Penta IPS500 diesels and joystick driving helps with close-quarters maneuvers. Construction is E-glass, Kevlar and epoxy for a lightweight, sturdy hull.

Accommodations are for as many as six people.

At press time, we found five MJM 40z’s for sale, ranging from $650,000 to $889,000.


From the Archive

“Anyone who fancies a run along the ICW, the Mississippi or the Tennessee-Tombigbee Waterway will appreciate the fuel-miserly 40z. Tests conducted by [MJM] and Volvo [Penta] recorded 1.2 nautical miles to a gallon of diesel (about 23 gallons per hour) at a cruising speed of 27 knots (2,800 rpm). And these figures are from the 370 hp Volvo IPS500s. During my sea trial, I observed similar fuel numbers on the Volvo instrumentation.” —Yachting, March 2010
