New Model: MJM 36z Downeast

MJM is Boston US builder who presents its latest 36z Downeast model.  MJM builds its boats in epoxy, and the 36z which is its second large model is surely no exception.  A different version for the 36z should be available later on.  The 36z Downeast is a lobster boat design and can sleep two in a classical Vee berth roomy cabin.  There is also a choice for an island berth in change to the convertible Vee shaped settee. A well sized galley, and separate shower head make part of the lower deck accommodation.  Here the US builder thinking more of offering high level of comfort than the most high number of berths.  A classical theme in many down East lobster looking cruisers. The main deck is synonymous with comfort offering two forward looking seats for helm and co-driver, two sofas, and two back looking benches.  The aft deck is left free.  Power is from twin Volvo 170hp standard, or optional 220 and 300hp engines with stern drive propulsion.  Top speed is 34 knots with twin 220hp engines.
