MZO is hull #5 and is in very nice condition. This is a great opportunity to own an MJM 40Z at a 36Z price. MZO has the Cummins Axius stern drive system that is great for shoal draft. The Joystick control and Sky Hook features make docking a snap. With its beautiful lines, seakeeping design, fuel efficiency and social livability the 40z has become the bench mark for 40' downeast yachts.

Beginning forward, the MJM 40Z has a generous master stateroom with large(60" X 78") island berth and generous storage in 4 drawers in the aft end and large plastic storage bins underneath. Dual bookcases and wide shelves are handy to both sides of the berth. There are two 19 X 19 hatches overhead, one of which is directly over the berth for watching stars at night or quick deck access which is a safe and dry way to inspect the anchoring gear without having to go on deck. Additionally, in hull opening ports provide exceptional light and ventilation and are equipped with shades and screens. There's an ensuite shower with seat to starboard as well as a combination head/shower to port.
Just aft is the convenient and fully equipped galley to port and a settee to starboard. This settee converts to an over and under double berth. It's a wonderful area which is well suited to dining, playing games, working or just keeping the cook company.
The pilot house is an expansive area with comfortable seating for eight with Stidd chairs that rotate to join the conversation and two comfortable settees with a teak table for alfresco dining and cocktails. This area is conditioned with a dedicated 16,000 BTU system.
Continuing aft is the expansive cockpit which increases the seating capacity on a single level social area to 15!
The storage is extensive. A central hatch to a utility room under the pilot house, two cavernous lockers under the settees and a full beam aft storage area forward of the engines. This space will hold all the toys, tools and extras.
The ergonomics of the cockpit side doors make boarding easy and safe for everyone, from youngsters to seniors. The generous bow rails, abundant hand holds and nicely proportioned side decks add to the ease of moving around on deck.
Engines and Mechanical
Twin Cummins QSD 4.2l 320 hp engines paired with Axius stern drives. The Axius drives offer joystick control for docking and maneuvering, Skyhook, that will maintain heading and position while waiting for bridge openings or your turn at the infrequent visit to the fuel dock. The Axius drives also have the added advantage of reduced draft (as little as 26 inches) and by raising the drives, the ability to kneel on the swim platform and inspect/service the props. Their positioning also allow for a large aft storage area.

Hull and Deck
The Doug Zurn designed 40Z hull features a modified deep - V planing hull with 19 degree deadrise aft runnng forward 13 feet which then transitions to 50 degrees forward. This combined with dual lifting strakes, chine flats and generous bow flare make for the driest ride, exceptional stability and tracking upwind or down, and a low vertical center of gravity so she'll carve into turns rather than lean outwards as low tech heavier boats frequently do.
There is abundant under deck storage in the aft cockpit as a result of the stern drive engine configuration.
The legendary MJM fuel efficiency (as little as 50% of comparable 40 footers) is achieved through her high tech build that eliminates fuel wasting excess weight. Yet this high tech, high strength, high quality build process is certified ISO CE Mark Class A for an ocean going vessel capable of 24 GPG at 31 MPH cruise.
The ergonomics are simply unmatched starting with the innovative side boarding cockpit doors, making it safe and easy for everyone, children to seniors, to board.
The single level cockpit and pilot house sole and abundant handholds make moving about easy regardless of age or conditions.
