For a bit more on where Mjm Yachts began, we rewind to 2002 when Bob Johnstone started it all. Bob was the co-founder of J/ Boats, Inc., in 1977 which was the world’s leading brand of performance sailboats at the time. Bob, now 84 years young, really wanted to build a user friendly, cost efficient yet fun boat. His wife Mary was the light that started this desire. The brand became Mjm —for Mary Johnstone’s Motorboat!
Bringing his son Peter into the boardroom to assist him in his efforts (Peter was the ex-CEO of Sunfish Laser & founded Gunboat) along with Doug Zurn who had just designed a boat for singer Billy Joel, after 30 days they came up with Mjm we know today.
Bob’s goal was to produce the “best performing brand.” With that in mind, master builder, Mark Lindsay of Boston BoatWorks, known for the America’s Cup and world championship winning sailboats he had been building for 35 years. BBW became Mjm’s licensed builder.
This power team is, to this day, working together to build what Bob set out to do - produce the best performing brand.
Boston BoatWorks were the leaders in advanced laminate construction and brought much to the Mjm table and to each of it’s 300 yachts —each meeting global standards that impress the most seasoned boater.
Using wet, pre-preg materials, vacuum molding followed by post-cure oven processes, you’ll feel confident this build is as study as they get! The glue—epoxy resin is 25 percent stronger then the alternatives sometimes used by builders and offers superior moisture resistance as the icing on the cake.
The combination of the methods and materials are what leave each owner with a boat that’s not only sturdy, but with a lighter hull requiring much less horsepower and excellent fuel efficiency. The Mjm is also know for it’s excellent value retention.
Each vessel is ISO Certified to highest standards. And the notable 40z, 50z and 53z are Certified ISO CE Category A “Ocean” by the International Marine Certification Institute.
This category is the toughest standard for vessels 40’ and over and gets the seal of approval for extended voyages in seas of up to 23 feet, significant wave height and winds of 41-47 knots or less —hurricanes excluded —leaving you with peace of mind for all seaworthiness and safety worries.
Know as an eco-friendly yacht, the state-of-the-art Mjm, is know for using half the normal fuel consumption of it’s competitors, therefore, significantly reducing the carbon impact on the environment.
Putting your faith into an Mjm as your next boat will leave you with a sense of confidence and security, and you’ll hear yourself boasting of it’s capability that backs it all up!
