MJM 36z

"36z is ideal for a couple downsizing from larger power or sail or a young family needing a bit more cruising space. 36z is large enough to seat 3 couples in protected all-weather comfort and for safe passages in offshore waves, yet light and narrow enough for unassisted docking and single-handed operation. 36z is so easy to use; it will keep people boating together through shared adventures, on an almost daily basis. Thanks to narrow beam and low height, 36z is readily shipped by road (with permits but without excess width & height surcharges) between winter and summer residences." ~ MJM 36z Brochure


"A length to beam ratio greater than 3:1 provides a better transition from modified V-shaped hull with knife-like entry to a 13-foot planning surface with 18-degree deadrise, producing a softer entry into waves than is possible with wider boats. 36z's bow flare, apart from directing airflow out and away from the pilothouse and cockpit, keeps guests in the stern seat dry and keeps the bow up when running fast down into the backside of waves, eliminating severe yaw (bow steer)... a problem with many Downeast designs. 36z gets up on a plane without the bow-up, climbing-out-of-a-hole behavior of heavier boats and will stay on a plane at over 10 knots. There is a level of joy found driving a 36z, atypical of powerboats with any cruising comfort...it steers with the secure, predictable touch of a good sportscar, intuitively leaning into turns at your command.

A primary design goal was to offer the ease of joystick control when docking. Another was to create a boat that could be moored close to home in shallow tidal waters. 36z is one of the first boats to offer Volvo Penta's IPS computer control maneuvering technology in sterndrives. The joystick system only activates when twin-engine controls are put in neutral. A button is then pushed on the base of the joystick to activate. It's two-finger control. Each drive unit is independently operated by computer for direction, rpm and forward-reverse gear to maneuver the boat in the direction you move the joystick. When the joystick is not activated, the boat can be run as a conventional twin.

The 36z is the most fuel-efficient boat of its size. When cruising at 26.3 knots with its twin Volvo Penta D3, 5-cylinder diesels it burns 13 gallons (49 liters) an hour with a range of 360 nautical miles. For those who are put off by frequent visits to the fuel dock and high fuel prices, or one's carbon footprint on the planet, 36z is the answer. Other than for passage-making, average fuel usage is about 5 gallons or 19 liters per hour.

The aft seat engine cover rises 45 degrees up and aft. Wing fuel tanks are used to improve stability. Full-sized 26" mountain bikes may be stored, hidden away in pilothouse lockers. Mesh bags organize hoses, shore power cords, life jackets, etc. Deck drains capture rain and dew that then flows into the gray water system out through the transom rather than over the side through a gap in the toe rail ... streaking the topsides. There is no exposed teak on deck and if the optional teak & Thiokol cockpit decking is installed, there's a 3 part cockpit cover or Bimini to minimize weathering." ~ MJM 36z Brochure


"36z is ISO (CE) Certified as Offshore Category B and along with other MJM models, may be the only designs of their type built to exceed international CE Mark (ISO) draft structural requirements for a Class A Ocean-Going Yacht. MJM's licensed builder, Boston Boat Works, has more than 30 years' experience in building boats using high tech, wet pre-preg, vacuum-bagged and post-oven-cured, epoxy/Kevlar/E-glass/Corecell construction. The boat's high strength-to-weight ratio results in lighter overall weight, lower VCG (vertical center of gravity), easier handling, superior fuel efficiency and better speed for the horsepower. Since epoxy has 3x the flexural strength of polyester or vinylester resins, the 36z will have a longer life." ~ MJM 36z Brochure


  • Prepreg biaxial-knit E-glass and KEVLAR outer skin with Gougeon slow-set epoxy to a 60:40 ratio (glass to resin ratio) layered in the mold with CoreCell closed-cell foam core and vacuum-bagged to 2116 lbs per square foot to compress the laminate and eliminate air prior to post-curing at 145F

"Twin Yanmar 6BY3, 260-hp diesels. The inline 6-cylinder engine achieves its rated speed at 4,000 rpm. Weighing 723 pounds without gear, it has a displacement of 183 cubic inches. It features a direct-injection combustion system, a 12 V electric starting system and alternator and enclosed lubrication system.

The Yanmar sterndrive's hydraulic multi-disc clutch is a big step forward," MJM founder Bob Johnstone said in a statement. "When docking with a joystick, there's much changing of gears from forward to reverse and back again, as the computer operates the drives independently to move the boat sideways, forward or aft. The hydraulic multi-disc clutch eliminates the gear clunking for much smoother operation. Furthermore, the Yanmar drive offers superior control in joystick docking mode without need for a supplementary bow thruster." ~ Trade Only

Pilot Salon

"The all-weather pilothouse has 6'5" (1.98m) headroom and comfortably seats 6...plus another 6 in the cockpit... all on the same level! This layout, with the table moved to the outside cockpit socket for drinks and hors d'oeuvres, opens up the space nicely for guests at a party. When anchored out for a picnic, the pilothouse can be completely opened up like a flybridge (without the ladder). Front windshields fully open and it takes seconds to unzip, roll up and store the Strataglass side curtains in place. Good airflow and a sense of being "outside" are keys to comfort on a warm day. If rainy, foggy or cold, no problem: Button her up in cabin cruiser mode for air-conditioned comfort with diesel heater or reverse-cycle air-conditioner. Piloting seats swivel around and lower to become side chairs for après boating moments. At night, settees (see picture at left) convert to 6.5' (1.98m) berths with privacy curtains completely enclosing the area." ~ MJM 36z Brochure

"The galley is located at the companionway for ventilation, so the cook is never left out of the conversation, and to serve double duty as a sideboard and wet bar. Shown is the option with 5-way microwave/convection oven, single burner Princess ceramic stove, deep polished stainless sink (under a cover), and General Ecology water purifier. Behind sliding cabinet doors is plenty of dry goods storage and a secondary spice and canned goods shelf. A full-size trash bin is located behind the flip-lid access in the upper panel of the door under the counter. Flatware, utensil and rolled-goods storage drawers are more than adequate with additional pot storage on a lower cabinet shelf.

The 5 ft. cubic (0.5 m cubic) refrigerator/ice-box/freezer has a unique dual opening system.
