2017 MJM 50z



Milford, Connecticut, United States
  • 1 Staterooms
  • 2 Heads
  • 3 Engines

The MJM 50z is one of the most versatile boats ever built, offering speed, low maintenance and ease of use for dayboating and harbor cruising, while the generous accommodations, efficiency and seaworthiness make for an ideal long-range cruiser. There is no such thing as the perfect boat, but the 50z is about as close as you can get. The MJM has excellent design and build quality without being a "fussy" boat.

Highlander is a well maintained, single-owner boat with only summer use in New England and always stored at the same boatyard with the same mechanic her entire life. IPS service was completed this winter as well as all normal maintenance. Highlander is on the dock and ready for your late summer and Fall cruising season. The owner has just finished his last cruise of the season and is moving up to a bigger boat.

Highlights include:

  • ISO certified Category A Ocean
  • Triple Volvo IPS 600s - 340nm range at 34 knots and 450nm range at 27 knots!
  • Zero exterior teak = easy and less expensive to maintain
  • Espar diesel heater
  • 2023 full IPS service
