Mikelson Yachts

What makes the Mikelson design so revolutionary?

Mikelson Yachts are unique in their aft engine design. One of the only sportfishing yachts available with the engines aft under the cockpit, the Mikelson boasts many advantages over our east coast competitors. (more…)

How can the Mikelson 43 Zeus be so efficient AND so fast?

We get asked all the time why the Zeus Pod Drives are so efficient. And the answer actually is that they aren’t…the Pod Drives themselves are simply a means of propelling the vessel. What makes the Mikelson 43 Zeus Sportfisher so efficient, is our ability to use a smaller displacement engine (that burns less fuel) combined with the horizontal thrust of the Pod Drives (as opposed to an angled shaft).

We went from an 8.3L engine on the conventional drive Mikelson 43, down to a lighter and more efficient 6.7L engine on the Zeus model. That Pod Drive horizontal thrust then allows the boat to go just as fast (or even faster) while burning less fuel with that smaller motor.
