About this MJM 40z Downeast


Spaghetti & Meatballs is one of the Boston Boatworks built MJM’s. She is a fully-equipped, versatile, classic 40z Downeast with low hours that has all the right features, including IPS joystick docking control with DPS, a Seakeeper 5 Gyrostabilizer, Humphree Interceptor trim tabs, and electric opening windshields. Currently stored with Boston Boatworks and available for showings by appointment. *Seller will provide a contribution of $20,000 towards replacement of pilot house and cockpit cushions, as a deduction from any negotiated purchase price.


The primary design goal for the 40z was to create a 40 foot powerboat that would handle like a 30 footer at idle speeds in tricky docking situations. Her Volvo-Penta IPS joystick control technology makes this a reality.  The IPS system’s twin pod drives under the hull, with the conventional twin engine controls in neutral, a single joystick enables fingertip control, eliminating any need for thrusters.  Through a unique computer program, each drive unit operates independently for direction, rpm and forward or reverse gear.  This system is far more intuitive than conventional twin shaft drives or joystick/thruster operated jet drives. 

Doug Zurn designed this modified deep-V planing hull with generous Carolina bow flare for dealing with steep following or head seas without yawing, burying the bow nor impacting each small wave with a disconcerting jolt to one’s equilibrium. For exceptional stability and planing performance, deadrise aft is 18.5° degrees, carried forward 13’ then warped into a 50+ degree deadrise at the cutwater with dual lifting strakes and chine flats. This hull shape creates the driest running boat of its type.

Master Stateroom

The spacious forward cabin features a large centerline island berth, covered in quilted Ultraleather on foam mattress, 4 drawers beneath the front end and a large storage bin underneath. 2 Hella turbo fans flank the berth.

Hull sides are sheathed in cherry and the framed cherry wood forward bulkhead has recessed bookcases (2) and double access doors to large forepeak anchor locker.  Combination bureau/entertainment center with cabinet, drawer & shoe locker, Corian counter and upper storage shelf.  Hanging locker to port with storage shelf over. A dressing mirror is mounted on the forward face of entry door. 

There are two large deck hatches overhead, one directly above the berth for enjoying the night sky or quick deck access, a safe way to inspect anchoring gear (deck is waist high when standing on the berth) without having to go on deck at night or in rough weather. These hatches plus hull opening ports provide exceptional light and ventilation and are equipped with shades and screens.
