MJM Yachts 36z

  • 36.00 ft
  • Downeast



The 36z Express model offers a styling option for those who may prefer added solid glass on pilothouse sides, either for the looks, for operation in rougher waters to provide ventilation without having to keep the StrataGlass side opening curtains down, or for a bit more security with small kids climbing up on pilothouse settees. Apart from the design of these pilothouse side windows, the Downeast and Express models are alike. 

One of the great benefits of all MJM designs is versatility of use, particularly in providing comfort in the pilothouse, where passengers are most usually seated underway. Yet, it’s surprising to see how many boats, even 75 foot motoryachts, don’t provide good all-weather seating for at least three couples where they can share the experience, converse in normal tones of voice and can see the scenery to enjoy boating for what it’s meant to be…getting out of the house! 

The 36z will most likely be the quietest running boat among MJM designs.  That’s saying something, because they all have low noise levels thanks to extra Sounddown insulation and the strength of their epoxy construction.  What makes the 36z different is the new generation of smoother running, low emission Volvo-Penta turbocharged 4-stroke diesels mounted in the stern. These are marinized versions of the diesel engines used in their luxury XC-70 wagon in Europe and are just being introduced in the U.S. market.

How Fuel Efficient?

12-14 gallons per hour at 25 knots, or about 2 nautical miles per gallon with optional twin 170 hp or 220 Volvo Penta D3, 5 cylinder diesels and OceanX titanium/ceramic coated sterndrives. But possible more important is the fuel consumption for average usage over the course of several weeks, 5 knots in the harbor and 25 knots in open waters, etc.  We think you’ll find that you’ll be burning about 4 gallons per hour. That’s extraordinary.

Express offers an alternate styling with the opportunity to provide additional solid-glass protection for rougher water, higher speed operation while still have the flexibility to open up the sides, back and windshields for optimum control of ventilation. Apart from the design of these pilothouse side windows, the Downeast and Express models are alike.

Along with classic good looks, unsurpassed quality of construction and superior performance from a modern hull form: MJM’s goal for all its models has been threefold: 

(1) Create boats that can be easily operated by one person, meaning husband or wife, in the most demanding situations such as when docking or handling in rough seas. 

(2) Be sure that the boat is as comfortable for 2-person cruising for its size as possible AND fun to use with friends (e.g. 2-3 other couples) on a daily, spur-of-the-moment basis to, for example, go out to dinner, go on a short sunset cruise, watch the local sailboat races, or to take the kids to a secluded beach or island.  Boats that remain tied up to a dock except for 3-4 trips a year are not very practical unless they replace one’s year-round home.

(3) Be easy to own, e.g. minimal maintenance, operating issues and few restraints when docking, mooring or shipping by truck between residences.
