MJM just announced that it is launching a new high-tech performance 46-foot yacht named the 4z, and it’s already building hull number one of the outboard version; an inboard version will be ready for the 2024 model year.
The company, now based in Washington, North Carolina, says the 4z is an evolution of the day yacht, but it can serve just as well as liveaboard cruiser, built in the Carolina Downeast style.
With two cabins and one yacht-sized head below, and a fully protected helm deck up top, the 4z is a combination of the company’s new 3z day boat and the 40z, a long-time couple’s cruising favorite.
The new 4z is being built with an advanced precision epoxy composite layup and will have the company’s legendary blue-water performance and seakeeping capabilities. Standard power will be three 300-hp Mercury outboards, with twin 600-hp Mercury Verados as options, plus two 440-hp Volvo DPI sterndrives in 2024. Top speed: 50 mph.
It will have four social zones, from the open seating up front to the open cockpit aft. The protected helm deck will have electrically operated windshields and sliding side windows and a back that can be opened up in good weather or buttoned up when the weather turns or the owners want more privacy. The galley is up.
Below, a large V-berth is forward and a guest cabin with double berths is amidships. The head has a glass-enclosed shower.
We don’t have many more details about this latest MJM yet, but we’ve driven almost every MJM made so far and we’ve been more than impressed by their comfort, performance and seakeeping abilities every time. Stay tuned.
