Zurn designs new MJM 43Z
MJM Yachts has launched the new 43Z. Designed and styled by Doug Zurn of Zurn Yacht Design.
The 43Z sports triple Mercury 350hp Verado outboard motors, enabling the yacht to reach speeds of 50 mph. MJM recognizes the benefits of utilizing the Mercury Verado engines – for their advanced electronics, responsive controls, fuel efficiency and quiet running.
With outboards, the 43Z’s shallow draft of 3’ (2’-2” with engines up) allows for beaching the yacht at your favorite island get-away or running the shoals to those hard-to-get-to locations.
Doug Zurn, CEO of Zurn Yacht Design, said: “It’s an attractive model, especially for the southern market, thanks to the shoal draft.”
With a hull design the same as the proven 40Z (MJM has sold 100 of the 40Z hulls since 2008), the 43Z is also at home in deep water, running into a head sea, thanks to a 45-degree bow deadrise, transitioning to 18-degrees aft for a smooth, fast ride. For added comfort at rest, opt for the Seakeeper 5 Gyrostabilizer.
Access to the 43Z is via opening hull-side boarding gates into the spacious flush open cockpit, with upholstered stern seating across the transom. Two additional seats are forward, facing aft. The midship salon with upholstered settee and table can be enjoyed as an open-air room, thanks to the sliding glass side windows, three tilt-up forward windshields and open aft bulkhead. At night, this space can transition to a sleeping cabin with optional privacy curtains.
