Zurn Yachts has introduced the new MJM 35Z outboard model. The MJM 35Z has side-boarding doors for easy access and exit at floating dock height.
Better than any center console or cabin cruiser, the 35Z, as with all MJMs, has fully opening windshields for that wonderful fresh air when desired. There’s even an electric push-button option as we find they are constantly adjusted. You have a choice of either roll-up Strataglass or tinted sliding safety glass for the side openings.
A bow rail similar to that on other MJMs with spotlight and burgee staff is an option as are a range of fishing options for the casual or serious fisherman.
The pilothouse doubles as a second cabin at night with settees converting to two full-length berths and the privacy/sunscreen curtain fully enclosing the area.
The cockpit table opens up for dining and has two other socket locations: the cockpit and V-Berth.
Needless to say, with no diesels or Hamilton Jet Drives under the deck, the MJM 35Z has tons of storage for all the diving, fishing and water-sport equipment imaginable.
Also available are stainless steel racks on the hard top for kayaks or paddle-boards.
The serving bar to port can accommodate an electric grill, bait well, sink, ice-maker or fridge. Twin Stidd piloting seats pivot and lower on telescoping pedestals to form “living room” side chairs to seat 6 people comfortably in any weather during cocktail hour. A full and very effective cockpit Bimini is offered as an option.
A sense of elegance and being on a real boat for civilized cruising is not lost when going below.
A clear Awlgrip finished teak & holly sole is combined with satin-finished cherry battens on the hull, with ultra-leather upholstery and beautiful cherry joiner-work on door frames, drawers, fiddles and cabinets. Storage shelves over the berths are perfect for duffel bag weekending.
The galley has plenty of storage above the counter and below. There are two lockers in the cabin sole, a hanging locker and head with shower, plus a deck shower on the transom. Seven hull ports, port-lights and deck hatches bring in lots of light and air. There are a pair of long berths with optional “filler” for a double berth conversion.
