Stan Miller Yachts is now MJM Yachts’ exclusive West Coast dealer for the United States and British Columbia.

MJM Yachts models include the 29z, 36z, 40z and the new 50z. Two of the 40z models are now being built for West Coast owners in the company’s new 35,000-square-foot plant in Boston.

Stan Miller Yachts will display an MJM 40z in September at the Lido Boat Show in Newport Beach, Calif.

All MJMs are built in America, and sea-trialed for turn-key delivery. MJM’s epoxy composite construction seeks to create a more fuel-efficient, faster boat that is also easier to dock. The Down East-style 40z and 50z are certified ISO CE Mark Category A Offshore, the highest possible safety rating.

The new 50z incorporates a Seakeeper gyrostabilizer as standard equipment.

“With demographic trends, there’s a growing market for high-quality Down East-style express cruisers in both California and the Pacific Northwest,” Stan Miller Yachts president John Buettner said in a statement.

“The potential for MJM here is huge,” Buettner said. “We have successfully represented the Grand Banks Eastbay line for over 25 years. Now, with the addition of the innovative MJM brand, SMY is sure to be the first stop for anyone interested in owning a quality express cruiser. We look forward to sharing with them the unique benefits and joys of owning an MJM.”
