Zurn Yacht Design brings three models to the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show 2015


zurnZurn Yacht Design will proudly showcase three of their latest models at the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show 2015. Two of those will have their U.S. debut at the show: MJM 50 powerboat and Vanquish 26 are to be found on display at the MJM Yachts (B dock 224-226) and at the Vanquish Boats Bahia Mar Land 1068-1070, respectively. Vendetta 57 footer commuter will instead be for sale at the water pavillion (SYBAss) in a very hi-profile position, adiacent to the Superyachts.

MJM 50
Zurn Yacht Design, Bob Johnstone (of J Boats fame) from MJM Yachts, and Boston Boatworks have teamed up to create a very unique line of powerboats. Beginning with the 2003 MJM 34z, they set out to establish new standards in design, construction and performance.  All MJM yachts are designed from the ground up to be efficient and practical; featuring easily driven, light-weight hulls, modern propulsion, and suitable accommodations.  Now, 12 years later, MJM continues to be the industry leader in technology and efficiency.  MJMs are approaching 200 builds.  The partnership of Zurn Yacht Design, MJM, and Boston Boatworks continues to advance the initial design goals of efficiency, simplicity, strength, performance and beauty.

Vanquish 26
Headquartered in Newport, Rhode Island, Vanquish brings you time-tested classic designs, the pride of generational craftsmen and the advantage of today’s exciting new materials and technologies. Our direct drive inboard models are offered in either gas or diesel power and our hull is equipped with a unique propeller and shaft pocket which provides a very modest 22-inch draft. Our outboard models offer exceptional performance with best-in-class fuel economy. Either power package provides a balanced feel and an exceptionally smooth ride, a trademark characteristic of a Vanquish.
Vanquish Boats has taken Doug Zurn’s exclusive bow forward design to the next level, creating even more room for movement in the cockpit area and fostering an uncluttered feeling. The cozy and inviting bow seating provides everything you need at your fingertips to enjoy a day on the water. A large L-shape settee aft provides plenty of seating so no one is left behind. The integrated wet bar with your choice of sink or barbeque grill and the enclosed head under the port console ensures that the fun goes on all day. All these features built to our unwavering standard of construction slice through the waves on the famed Vanquish hull. This is a boat that is truly in a class of her own.
