GRACE is a great example of MJM's first Downeast cruiser, the 34Z. Drawn by noted yacht designer Doug Zurn, she was conceived by MJM founder Bob Johnstone as the ideal couple's cruiser capable of being easily single-handed. Complete and well-arranged accommodations allow a couple to spend weeks cruising in comfort and convertible settees on the helm deck allow two guests to overnight when visiting. Recently repowered with a 370 Horsepower VOLVO D6 diesel engine, GRACE will cruise comfortably at 25 knots while burning 9 GPH and top out at well over 30 knots. Owned since new by an experienced Northwest yachtsman, GRACE has traveled to the far reaches of the Salish Sea and is ready for new owners to make her part of their family.
MJM Yachts was founded by Bob Johnstone, creator of world-famous J-Boat sailboats, to address the needs of boaters who were looking for a high-quality cruiser that was economical to operate and could be easily single-handed. He turned to noted yacht designer Doug Zurn to create a classically beautiful yet functional design and to the experts at Boston Boatworks for high-tech production expertise. As a result of this collaboration, MJM yachts are constructed to exceed the CE Class A (Ocean) structural requirements by using a composite of epoxy-bonded bi-directional E-glass, Kevlar and CoreCell that is vacuum-bagged and oven post-cured for unrivaled strength, light weight and beautiful finish.
Powered by electronically-controlled diesel engines, MJM yachts are quick, nimble yet exceedingly economical. GRACE, powered by a single Volvo 370 Horsepower diesel engine, cruises comfortably at 25 knots while burning approximately 9 GPH, making her among the most fuel-efficient planing cruisers afloat.
GRACE may be boarded over the gunwale or across the swim platform into the spacious cockpit with seating against the transom. Crossing the cockpit one enters the fully-enclosed helm deck which features bench seating for six along the sides with a removable dining table in between. Further forward is the helm to starboard and navigation station to port, both equipped with Stidd pilot seats for comfort, support and safety while underway. Three steps down to the cabin, the private head with shower and VacuFlush toilet is located to starboard and the galley to port. The galley is equipped with chest-style refrigerator, stainless steel sink, single-burner cooktop, convection/microwave oven and abundant storage. The queen-sized convertible berth is located on the centerline with drawers and storage beneath. A built-in dresser with multiple drawers houses the TV and DVD player. The cabin is trimmed in satin-finished cherry and quality soft goods for a warm comfortable feeling.
GRACE is equipped with dual 30-Amp shorepower inputs, a Westerbeke 3.8 kW generator and a Heart 2.0 kW inverter making 115VAC house current accessible at anchor, underway or dockside.
GRACE features reverse-cycle A/C and heat for comfortable cabin temperatures in all seasons.
The entire helmdeck sole raises on electric lifts to provide access to the engine and belowdeck storage areas. The engine room is partitioned with removable panels providing safe and secure storage for cruising necessities and will accommodate bicycles, golf clubs, fenders, ice chests and any manner of bulky objects. Belowdeck storage can also be easily accessed by lifting the helmdeck side seating.
Engine, transmission and generator are located on the centerline with access above and around all components. The well-organized and fully-labelled electrical and mechanical systems are located forward and to the sides of the engine room for ease of maintenance.
The engine room is fully insulated to minimize thermal and acoustic transmission, making cruising quiet and comfortable.
