Karnic Powerboats 2760

The Karnic 2760 has all the bases covered - a clean design, solid hull and 38 knots on tap. What's not to like?

Karnic started out in the early 1990s building great dayboats and
overnighters with the emphasis on good no-nonsense build quality and
hands-on action.

A near 40-knot
top speed is impressive but even better was how the hull handled this
power and speed. It preferred to stick to the water – making it easy to
control and putting in rail-like turns – rather than dancing about and
finding too much air.

  • Overall score:


  • Delivers a very frugal fuel consumption


  • The standard spec should be better

Price as reviewed:



This 27ft Karnic has all the solid get-in-and-go attributes that make this manufacturer's boats so appealing. Erring on the side of the clean and lean means it isn't as plush and fussy as others in its size or price class, but then that's precisely what gives the 2760 its edge.
