2 The Cap Camarat 10.5WA – Fast, Fun, Fantastic
“If your idea of boating is enjoying short cruises and fast crossings, diving, improving your wakeboarding skills, doing a bit of fishing, or just spending a weekend on the water with the family, look no further than Jeanneau’s latest Cap Camarat 10.5 WA”. Diego Yriarte, Boats.com
Designed by Michael Peters of Sarasota, FL in conjunction with the Jeanneau design team, comes the all-new Cap Camarat 10.5WA . With an overall length of 34’8″ and powered with your choice of twin 300 or 350 horsepower outboard engines, the Cap Camarat 10.5 with Michael Peter’s signature twin-stepped hull design, runs fast and flat like a well-designed boat should.
“It’s designed to run fast but in control and, due to its center tunnel, it turns as if on rails.” David Lockwood, BoatPoint.com
Like all Jeanneau models, the Cap Camarat 10.5 is designed for outside living at its best. A great cockpit, complete with large convertible dining table and outside galley allows for cooking and entertaining in grand style one minute and lounging in the sun the next.
Step below and you’ll find an amazingly large space complete with a wonderfully designed galley to port, along with a good-size head compartment to starboard. The forward dinette area doubles as a large berth while a second berth for two can be found aft. All and all the interior of the 10.5 is large and bright making it an easy place to spend time when not on deck.
“It’s the perfect boat for day cruises with friends (10 passengers is the limit), but also for a weekend of cruising with accommodation for four guests.” BoatMag International
The Cap Camarat 10.5 made its North American debut at this year’s Miami International Boat Show to rave reviews. With the summer boating season now upon us, it’s my bet that you’re sure to see a few of these exciting new models on the water; going fast, having fun, and making the summer boating season nothing short of fantastic!
