Perfect as a stand-alone day boat or as a superyacht tender, the 43’ Open has quickly proved to be one of the most popular Midnight Express models on the market. With a class-leading beam of 12’6’’, together with a twin step hull, low-weight construction and incredible performance, it is no surprise that demand for the design has been high. Fully customized and built to the highest standards by American yard Midnight Express, this design is equally at home in American waters as it is the Mediterranean.
Speed is the watchword of the 43’ Open, powered by triple Seven Marine 627 HP engines and capable of incredible speeds of 75+ mph. A powerful navigation station, with adjustable wheel, features Garmin displays positioned behind a high windshield for protection when underway at speed.

A.J. (Alexander James) MacDonald grew up in England, in the picturesque countryside of The Cotswolds. In 2000 he moved to the South of France, where he began his career in the yachting industry where he would spend the next 12 years working aboard megayachts, traveling extensively throughout the Mediterranean, the Bahamas and the Caribbean. During that period he acquired an in-depth knowledge of the quality, mechanics, and maintenance of yachts, as well as a deep insight into client service. After marrying his wife, a former Yacht Charter Broker and Manager in 2012, they settled down in Fort Lauderdale, Florida and A.J. embarked on the next phase of his yachting career to follow his passion of selling yachts.
A.J.’s attention to detail, market insight, international travel experience, passion for yachting and interpersonal skills all contribute to his professional and client-oriented approach. A.J. works alongside his father-in-law John Weller, a 40 year yacht broker veteran, to continue on the successful family business. They both pride themselves on building long lasting relationships with their clients, offering nearly 60 years of combined yachting experience, complemented with a fresh approach to today’s ever-changing market.
John grew up on the South Shore of Long Island and became a boat owner at the age of 12, when he purchased his first boat. A highly successful broker, John has been awarded the Richard Bertram Yachts top broker award 26 times. His strong experience, excellent communication skills, and focus on listening to what his clients are looking for in a yacht have contributed to his success. One of his strongest accomplishments include the construction of the 240’ (73m) Feadship “Predator”, launched in 2008. He also worked on a line of Royal Denship/Chaperone boats, ranging from 150’ to 500’ in length, designed to escort owners’ yachts and carry all their equipment and toys. Passionate for the sea and yachting, John enjoys sharing the boating experience with the children of his community. He is heavily involved in the organization of the Annual Big Brothers/Big Sisters Fishing Tournament on the first Saturday of June each year. Another project he launched is the “Well-er Days”, ie. Freedom Waters where he arranges yacht day trips for children with cancer and for veterans. John currently lives and works in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. He joined IYC as Yacht Sales Consultant in 2017.
