HarborMoor’s “INTERVIEW WITH THE SKIPPER – Ken Taylor“
HarborMoor: Why did you choose to buy an MJM 40z?
Taylor: When I started considering a power boat, I was drawn to Down East style designs. Bob Johnston and Doug Zurn had designed the MJMs to be a “sailor’s power boat,” and combined with the Down East look, that became a natural fit for me. It was a timeless design, very high tech and performance oriented. Having a pod drive and joystick control for docking was also a key requirement, which the 40z had.
HarborMoor: Do you have any advice for those looking to buy an MJM?
Taylor: Whether purchasing a new or used MJM, I would recommend working with one of their dealers. I worked with East Coast Yacht Sales, their local MJM dealer when purchasing Vim. They are incredibly knowledgeable and also facilitated the sail of my Sabre Spirit. Allen Schiller initially showed me a number of used MJMs, before I decided on a new build. The MJM dealer network is very well trained and can provide a number of resources.
