$279,000

Overview

BY THE WAY is a beautifully maintained downeast model with the preferred walk through transom for easy boarding. Her current owners have upgraded her with  electrically powered windshield openers , opening overhead hatches, aft seating, flip-up foot rests, side venting windows, and a new sound system. Equipment includes a teak helmdeck and cockpit and the upgraded 300HP Volvo diesel. Roll up curtains in the pilothouse create a large open space for entertaining in nice weather and the ability for the helmsman to lean out and secure a spring line. The MJM's are known for their sea kindly performance and economical fuel consumption. The MJM 29z drives like a sports car.

Additional

The reason we go boating is to get outdoors and enjoy the fresh air. The 29z Downeast Model accomplishes this in spades by having large StrataGlass pilothouse side windows that roll up and are strapped in place. One additional benefit of this configuration is the ability to lean out from the wheel to loop a midships dockline over a cleat on the dock to secure the boat.  

The 29z is a powerboat designed to be comfortable for harbor cruising, fun and easy to drive, exceptionally seaworthy and dry, fast, and fuel-efficient.   Additionally, as with all MJM Yachts, the front windshields hinge up parallel with the water for optimum ventilation as well as unobstructed visibility in fog or at night. Notice that MJM's spotlights are mounted on the bow rail so that there's no reflection off the deck or stainless to blind the helmsman.

A length to waterline beam ratio greater than 3:1 allows a better transition from modified V-shaped hull with knife-like entry to an 9-foot long planning surface with 17-degree deadrise, producing a softer entry into waves than is not possible with wider powerboats.  29z’s bow flare, apart from directing airflow and spray out and away from the pilothouse and cockpit to keep guests dry, works its magic with waves. Reserve buoyancy of the Carolina bow flare keeps the bow up when running fast down into the backside of waves, eliminating severe yaw (bow steer) to one side or the other … solving the problem of many downeast or deep-V designs which have deep fore-foots that tend to bury and/or a keel or shape that cause too much directional control of the hull, resulting in delayed helm response. 29z steers with the secure, predictable touch of a sportscar, properly leaning into turns and handling large seas. An owner, on the notoriously rough Buzzard's Bay, likes his 29z far better than his prior boat, a recent model 38 foot downeast-style boat.

The aft seat hinges up on counter-balanced pistons to provide excellent engine access. Notice also the absence of uncovered wood on deck and the midship deck drains to keep topsides from streaking. A built-in  freshwater anchor & rode washdown system that works from the helm is a unique MJM feature on this size powerboat.
