Pod-drives deliver the luxury of effortless driving
And remove the anxiety from docking
With more than ten hulls launched so far, the 15.24 metre MJM 50z is a popular and highly refined choice among down-east style powerboats, delivering both advanced performance and precise manoeuvrability. Built using a high-tech, wet pre-preg, post cure process, her Kevlar and Epoxy composite construction makes her stronger, and weight savings provide a low centre of gravity for superior stability. She comes with a choice of either a twin or triple Volvo Penta IPS 600 pod-drive engine set-up.
Whichever version you opt for, you can be sure of exceptional control, with the digital fly-by-wire joystick controls making light work of safely navigating a busy marina. Adding to the ease of operation is the Volvo Penta Dynamic Positioning System, making tying up at a dock or mooring single-handed a breeze.
Out on the open sea, the MJM 50z comes into her own, with the largest engine option propelling the deep V hull up to an exhilarating top speed of 40 knots. The autopilot mode brings peace of mind to long passages, and when you decide to change your course, the fly-by-wire steering means that you can make precise adjustments. With such a smooth, effortless ride, it’s easy to see why the MJM 50z has been called the Audi S Class of the seas.
