LONG BEACH — Stan Miller Yachts has announced its new partnership with MJM Yachts, the leading brand of fuel-efficient powerboats worldwide, becoming MJM’s exclusive West Coast dealer for the United States and British Columbia.
MJM Yachts models include the 29z, 36z, 40z and new 50z. Two of the popular 40z models are now being built for West Coast owners in its new 35,000 square foot plant in Boston, Massachusetts. An MJM 40z will be displayed by Stan Miller Yachts at the September Lido Boat Show in Newport Beach.
All MJMs are built in America, fully outfitted and sea-trialed to “zero” defects for turn-key delivery. MJM’s unique, high quality epoxy composite construction leads the industry in creating a more fuel efficient, faster, easier to dock boat all while remaining incredibly seaworthy. In fact, the MJM 40z and 50z are the only down east style vessels of any size certified ISO CE Mark Category A Offshore, the highest possible safety rating. In keeping with their commitment to being on the cutting edge, MJM Yachts, with their new 50z, is the first yacht builder to incorporate a Seakeeper Gyrostabilizer as standard equipment to optimize cruising comfort.
The MJM-Stan Miller partnership is a natural fit. As Stan Miller Yachts President John Buettner stated, “With demographic trends, there’s a growing market for high quality ‘down east’ style express cruisers in both California and the Pacific Northwest. The potential for MJM here is huge. We have successfully represented the Grand Banks Eastbay line for over 25 years. Now, with the addition of the innovative MJM brand, Stan Miller Yachts is surely to be the first stop for anyone interested in owning a quality express cruiser. We look forward to sharing with them the unique benefits and joys of owning an MJM.”
MJM was founded in 2002 by renowned sailor and yachtsman Bob Johnstone, bringing both an-on the-water and marketing background to the company. Johnstone co-founded the sailboat company J/Boats Inc. in 1977 with the goal of becoming the leading performance sailboat brand, which, with 14,000 sold worldwide, was clearly achieved. Johnstone then moved into powerboats with the same mission, in order to extend his (and the market’s) enjoyment on the water. The result: A fast, yet economical and easy-to-handle down east style cruiser, designed to provide ample indoor/outdoor living space and a fun, safe, comfortable ride. With two hundred boats now sold, Johnstone and his team have achieved their mission. MJM is consistently praised by buyers and industry press alike, as achieving the highest quality construction and best performance in class.
