GREAT LAKES LOW WATER MAKES OUTBOARD POWER MORE ATTRACTIVE

In my Editor's Message last week, I wrote about how Outboard Power is driving the development of many new boats and yachts. One of the latest and perhaps most innovative new models is the MJM Yachts 35z, a day boat design that comes with twin 300 hp Mercury Verado outboards.

Canadian Yachting magazine traveled to Newport to run the boat last week and reviewer John Armstrong was very impressed with the performance and versatility this 35 footer offers. Speed and fuel economy, (therefore great range) would be a very desirable virtue for Great Lakes boaters this summer. Many of our readers are faced with fuel docks and pump outs that have been closed by the high water levels.

The MJM 35z is a boat that can cover long distances to get you there and back quickly and in comfort. You still need to know where the marina services are open and available but the 50 mph top speed and available Seakeeper Gyro make covering long distances very realistic. This model was just introduced in June and we understand that more than 20 of these have already been ordered. And it's a high-end boat in every respect!

Watch for our review in an upcoming issue of Canadian Yachting magazine.
