NOTE: This is a preliminary listing using photos from 2020. New photos will be provided soon.
SOUND INVESTMENT is a super nice 36z – one of the best examples of this fantastic design. She sparkles everywhere one looks – exterior, interior, engine room and bilges.
This particular 36z has had excellent ownership and care history. And while her owners have loved the boat, she has been lightly used – showing approximately 560 hours on the engines. In recent years the hull paint has been done, power windshield controls added, all exterior cushions have been replaced (including the helm and companion seats), the electronics upgraded (including FLIR camera), one outdrive replaced, and all new helm deck enclosure and Bimini.
Read on for more details. This is perhaps the best 36z available today, and she represents an excellent value. (And dare I say she is a “sound investment”?!) She is ready for the 2023 season and awaits your inspection!
Most people looking at the MJM 36z are familiar with the vessel - after all, this design has been lauded internationally as one of the most intelligent designs, with the absolute highest quality construction (including a pre-impregnated, vacuumed, autoclaved epoxy hull and deck). The manufacturers description provided in this listing will provide additional details, as will your research and reading of the reviews of these acclaimed boats.
If you have not been aboard, you will find these boats to be a unique blend of incredible quality and performance, along with ease of maintenance, and presenting a layout that suits the way most people use a boat of this type. The cockpit living is fantastically spacious, the visibility is exceptional, and the ability to open the boat up to the world around it creates an ambience that put you and your guests at one with the world around you.
The access through the side doors, the single level decks from cockpit to companionway, the excellent seating, the comfortable ride, and the joystick operation - all bring a new sense of calm to boating that encourages low stress and relaxation. But the performance and ride are exhilarating - and allow you to extend your boating reach, especially when conditions would be unpleasant on other vessels.
Her propulsion system is a pair of the highly reliable Volvo D3A 5 cylinder, 2.4 liter common rail diesels, linked top the very efficient Volvo Ocean X Duoprop sterndrives. All controls and steering is electronic, and includes Joystick operation of the vessel. This makes her both ultra maneuverable and exceedingly "user friendly".
SOUND INVESTMENT represents one of the best of this class. She has been lavished with attention and new equipment and, as a result, I would wager she is the finest 36z currently available, and one of the finest out there. The new paint job, a common color choice on the latest MJM's coming out of the factory, completely updates the look of the boat - WOW!
SOUND INVESTMENT makes a strong impression - she looks great, shows impeccably (even in the hard to get areas), and does not need a thing - she is absolutely ready for her new owner to take the controls and start enjoying her from day one.
Please take a look at the details which make SOUND INVESTMENT an exceptional opportunity:
UPDATES SINCE 2018:
MJM’s goal for all its models has been threefold:
(1) Create boats that can be easily operated by one person, meaning husband or wife, in the most demanding situations such as when docking or handling in rough seas.
(2) Be sure that the boat is as comfortable for 2-person cruising for its size as possible AND fun to use with friends (e.g. 2-3 other couples) on a daily, spur-of-the-moment basis to, for example, go out to dinner, go on a short sunset cruise, watch the local sailboat races, or to take the kids to a secluded beach or island. Boats that remain tied up to a dock except for 3-4 trips a year are not very practical unless they replace one’s year-round home.
(3) Be easy to own, e.g. minimal maintenance, operating issues and few restraints when docking, mooring or shipping by truck between residences..
The 36z admirably fulfills all these goals: (1) Handling with a combination of a natural-response destroyer wheel in seas and it’s IPS-like joystick control with twin engines at idling speeds around docks. (2) Welcoming for all ages with side-opening doors and single-level cockpit/ pilothouse that seats 12 comfortably on a good day, 6 in any-weather. (3) Ease of Ownership? We know of no other boat that combines the 36z benefits of: Having no exposed wood to maintain on deck; Sterndrives that bounce up, then back down, when striking an underwater object, which when raised are reachable from the swim platform to clear props without going swimming, which can be raised part way for shoal water navigation or all the way for mooring in 17” of water or beaching the boat; Having height dimensions to fit under all 21 bridges (under 9.5 feet) between Palm Beach and Fort Lauderdale; Having height and width (12 feet or less) to be trucked without need of chase cars and alternate routing at the price of a 30 footer.
