VOLVO PENTA D13 1000 400

Recently, John Armstrong of Canadian Yachting magazine traveled to Maine to sea trial the exciting new MJM 35z.

MJM Yachts was founded in 2002 by Bob Johnstone, who also co-founded J Boats, Inc., the world's leading brand of performance sailboats (14,000 worldwide). Asked why the move to power, Bob, who is 83, replied, "Seems my wife and I had gotten older and our boats had to reverse roles. I'll always enjoy a daysail on the latest 'J.' But our quality cruising time is now on a motorboat."

SAFER AIR CONDITIONING WITH THE SMARTPLUG

Smart Plug 400During the heat of summer, many boat owners turn on their air conditioning units. Whether portable or installed, they have serious power requirements that can strain and overload outdated, twist-type shore power systems. A safer approach is to use the revolutionary SmartPlug. 

Available in 30 or 50 amp models, the SmartPlug consists of an inlet and cordset with connector. What sets it apart from traditional shore power equipment is the unique pin and clip design that provides more metal-to-metal contact. This dramatically reduces the chance of fire due to resistance and overheating from the loads an air conditioner can place on the system. Plus, its asymmetrical plug with spring-loaded locking clips slides straight in, making it easy to do when tired or it's dark. READ MORE
