Zurn Yacht Design will bring three new models to the Nov. 5-9 Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show.

The MJM 50 will make its U.S. premiere on display at MJM Yachts at B Dock 224, 226. Zurn Yacht Design, MJM Yachts' Bob Johnstone of J Boats fame and Boston Boatworks have teamed up to create a line of powerboats, beginning in 2003 with the MJM 34z. Twelve years later, MJMs are approaching 200 builds.

The Vanquish 26 also will make its U.S. debut on display at Vanquish Boats at Bahia Mar Land 1068-1070. Direct-drive inboard models are offered in either gas or diesel power, and the hull is equipped with a propeller and shaft pocket, which provides a 22-inch draft. Outboard models are also available.

The Vendetta 56-foot commuter will be for sale adjacent to the superyachts at the water pavilion (SYBAss). In the wake of Zurn Yacht Design’s 38-foot runabout with 50-plus hulls built to date, Grammy-award winning musician Billy Joel again consulted with Zurn on creating an upscale 57-foot commuter-style yacht.
