Jeanneau Cap Camarat 10.5WA Review
The Jeanneau Cap Camarat 10.5WA is a bit like the SUV on water. It has a large spacious design that lends itself well to all kinds of boating. You can tow tubes, fish, or simply relax in the comfortable and spacious lounging areas. And when it comes time to turn in for the night, it has all you need to keep warm and secure for a night onboard.
The new 10.5WA is all about space. With generous space up top and below, a big day out or a weekend away with the family is what it is all about. A sleek and stylish design, with clean lines, and power to boot, this new Jeanneau range is no ordinary boat. Two berths, one forward and one at the rear will have you and the family taken care of for your overnight stays.
The open cockpit of the Jeanneau Cap Camarat 10.5WA is the perfect lookout. From here you could watch and listen to majestic whales offshore or watch the kids tubing out the back. An incredible experience on any vessel, but on the new Cap Cammarat 10.5WA, with its central helm, offered exceptional control and visibility on the day.
The Jeanneau Cap Camarat 10.5WA is truly easy to manoeuvre even for a boat of this size. The seating is plush and comfortable too with three across and a wrapping lounge down the back. The front sun pad also provides an excellent whale watching platform if waters are calm enough.
It was easy to imagine the kids or kids at heart dominating the standard sun deck at the bow. Plenty of opportunities here to play and dive bomb into the water. Don’t worry about missing out however, as the new 10.5WA is really known for its spacious layout and usability. Head to the cockpit and the luxurious entertaining area. Here you can enjoy long summer nights with 360-degree views of blue, with family and friends. When the fun is over for the night, the bow area converts into a private cabin as well as a double aft cabin. This is what sets the Jeanneau Cap Camarat 10.5WA apart, with its exceptional layout containing 4 berths in 2 distinct living spaces.
The full interior galley and spacious head with separate shower compartment means the new Cap Camarat 10.5WA is made for multiple night stays aboard. The eager fisherman or weekend warrior need not feel left out however, with large platforms either side of the outboards, the perfect place to land a catch. To the serious anglers out there, you may prefer a removable rear lounge for your fishing convenience.
Inshore and at rest the stability is exceptional, making overnight stays truly comfortable, only so ever slightly rocking you to sleep. Access too around the boat is exceptional with room to get by the walk around console without needing to squeeze past. The rear table is a delight and the perfect place for an afternoon wind down.
Signature to the 10.5WA, the stepped hull is designed by architect Michael Peters. This is an exceptional design from a true innovator. The step in the hull runs beautiful lines and makes handling of the new 10.5WA a dream. Spray deflection is optimal sending it well out to the side.
The hull handles everything thrown at it with ease. Cruising at high speeds and at slow is equally comfortable. Handling at any speed was precise. Considering the size, the new Jeanneau Cap Camarat 10.5WA turns impressively like it is on rails. A true testament to the design and build.
You will be superbly comfortable in the helm position. There is enough seating across for several people to join you and you can comfortably decide whether you prefer to drive standing or seated.
The power from a twin-engine set-up is evident and pushes the hull onto the plane steadily. It can also be rigged with a single outboard. You need not worry about oncoming swell and small chop as the ride is effortless in the new Jeanneau Cap Camarat 10.5WA with the fine entry cutting through waves with ease.
The Jeanneau Cap Camarat 10.5WA looks as beautiful as it runs. Perfect for the Australian boater’s lifestyle and conditions, the new 10.5WA can really do it all. Any boater would be very at home behind the wheel. If ‘on water’ entertaining is your forte, or be it cruising and discovering new bays for a few days of bliss or even a fishing weekend between friends, you would be on point with the new Jeanneau Cap Camarat 10.5WA.
