Fine tuning has brought the Jeanneau Cap Camarat 7.5 series two bang up to date
Our test boat was powered by the biggest engine option, a single 300hp Yamaha petrol outboard. Jeanneau’s own test figures showed a top speed of 42.3 knots, but we achieved over 45 knots flat out with four people onboard, and better fuel consumption figures.
So even loaded down with the cruising stores that we didn’t have, plus the impediment of some mid-season fouling, 40+ knots should be easily achievable. That means fast cruising in the high thirties if you’re so inclined.
Given how well the hull handled the power, unless you want to save a few quid, there seems little reason to opt for the smaller options.

The Jeanneau Cap Camarat 7.5 series two is a terrific little boat that provides a roomier and far cheaper alternative to RIBs of similar length. Modest overnight accommodation makes intrepid weekend cruising a real possibility
