M43 Zeus now available with new 6.7L 550hp Cummins

The Mikelson 43 was uniquely designed by Tom Fexas with the engines below the cockpit. The advantages of this design have been clearly proven as there are now more than seventy (70) Mikelson 43’s in operation. Better trim, better access, quieter operation, engine heat and odors do not penetrate the cabin…..these are just a few of the benefits. This design advantage makes the Mikelson 43 one of the only sportfish yacht widely found in today’s market, that will accept the pod drives as other sportfishers have mid-engines and the pod drives are designed for aft engine installations.

Pod Drives provide horizontal thrust, this combined with a dual propeller system increases speed approximately 15% and increases fuel efficiency approximately 30% over conventional drive systems. The increase in the speed of the Zeus allows the Mikelson 43 to use a smaller engine size without sacrificing speed thereby increasing fuel efficiency dramatically.

There are other significant benefits. The Zeus system comes standard with power steering, autopilot, and a "smart" twisting joystick for simplified boat handling. The pod drives steer independently so that the Captain has the ability to twist the yacht or move the yacht sideways easily with the joystick. This feature far exceeds the benefits of a bow thruster and it allows the novice Captain to handle the yacht like a professional.

The Zeus drives also provide a shallower draft as they are tunnel drives so the already shallow draft of the Mikelson 43 is reduced even further to an amazing 3’03”, approximately. The Zeus exhaust is run through the propeller hubs for additional quiet and reduced emissions. There are optional features available such as “Sky hook” which will hold the yachts precise position and heading at the push of a button regardless of wind or current.

The Zeus Advantage

-Rear facing, tunnel-mounted drive assembly for unsurpassed safety
-Intuitive joystick system for effortless docking

-Greatly reduced noise and vibration for a more pleasurable boating experience
-Featuring SmartCraft™ technology which connects a boat's diverse onboard systems into a single integrated system
-Easy to install and even easier to maintain through integrated components

Zeus Test Data

Cummins MerCruiser Diesel (CMD) Testing:
"Extensive testing on Zeus-equipped boats reported impressive results in terms of efficiency and speed. For example, on a pair of identical 45-footers, one equipped with Zeus drives coupled to 425 hp diesels and the other with twin 500 hp straight inboards, the CMD engineers gained 4 mph in cruise speed with the smaller engines and 2 mph at top speed. And the ability to gain speed with smaller engines, which obviously burn less fuel, translated into a whopping 30 percent increase in efficiency at cruise, a truly impressive number."

--Marlin Magazine April-2007
