MJM 35zMJM introduces a new 35z Outboard model to bring their “luxury of effortless driving" to a smaller outboard powered model. Their 35z offers a combination of performance and comfortable, all-weather family boating in a stunning design having great versatility. 35z’s fuel efficiency, 50-plus-mph speed and 300-plus-mile cruising range is achieved with twin 300s and only 250 gallons of fuel capacity. That compares with competing designs that need triples and 400 gallons for the same results. There are two explanations: MJM’s unique wet pre-preg, post-cure, epoxy composite construction for a stronger, lighter and longer-lasting hull; and a seakindlyZurn-designed modified deep-V hull with a greater waterline length-to-beam ratio of 3.5:1, versus a more typical 2.7-3.0 ratio. Another welcome trait is the absence of chine-walk at speeds approaching 50 mph... proven on MJM’s earlier 29z with twin 250s. This hull shape gains stability the faster it goes as lifting strakes and chine flats redirect wave and wake energy into effective stabilizing forces.
