Did you ever think you would be taking a new Jeanneau Motorboat on the water? Well you certainly can with Jeanneau’s new Cap Camarat 9.0 models! They have developed twin outboards that are just as powerful as its predecessor’s single diesel engine, giving it a revitalized sporty and enjoyable feel. The Cap Camarat offers two different models, the WA (Walk around) and CC (Centre Console).
The boats have an identical look at the rear of the cockpit. There is a fixed transom bench, flip-out seats with the option for additional portside seats at extra cost. The cockpit table is able to transform into a lounger due to its telescopic legs. The 9.0 WA is given this name because the double helm is central and has steps on either side of the console that leads you to the flat foredeck and sunpad. This use of space epitomizes Jeanneau’s outside living feel but results in a smaller dinette. If you need hot water on board, you can add a single gas hob that is positioned in the cockpit, a Comfort Pack or a 240V shore support.
The 9.0 CC has an identical aft section of the cockpit to the 9.0 WA and has a similar helm area. This boat does not have steps to the foredeck but instead is all at deck level and it takes you to a bow area with a wide bench in the middle. An additional seat curves around the bulwarks – this use of space is perfect for a more social ride. Jeanneau has used the area beneath the large central seat well and has a useable double berth. You can also lift the base of the forward seat and place unwanted cushions inside.
With this line you have the option of a single 350hp outboard or the twin Yamaha 4.2-litre V6 250hp outboards hanging off the transom of the boats. Nick Burham, tested these boats and said, “Nail those throttles and you’ll have all three tones of boat (including those monster engines) planing in under give seconds. Keep them pinned and you’ll be at 40 knots just ten seconds later, the relentless upward flicker of the digital speed log only tailing off once you reach 5 knots.” He also said that they briefly saw 47 knots from the 9.0 CC. These boats are fast paced and can the speed can be enjoyed by your everyday captain. The Cap Camarat 9.0 will even plane with a more gentle power at 20 knots. The speed of the boat is also economical when setting the electronically synchronized throttles at 4000rpm as it only burns extra 0.3 litres of petrol per mile. If you want to feel the Cap Camarat 9.0 CC leaping towards the sky we suggest you go test it out!
Jeanneau is also confirming its position in the powerboat market with its focus for the 2019 season on the NC line. The NC 37 is the new model that will follow the NC 33. This model incorporates all the benefits that the NC line is known for with the latest boating technological advances. It has a brilliant hull design by Michael Peter that lends itself to reliable and secure handling at sea. This boat is “designed as an apartment with a terrace directly on the water”. The L-shaped aft cockpit can be turned into a sundeck and makes this a comfortable living space and ideal for use by families. The large sundeck can accommodate a canopy and has many storage areas. This contemporary and timeless style is beautiful with two large double cabins, a bathroom with a shower compartment and an entirely separate head compartment.
