Award winning Jeanneau Cap Camarat 9.0 WA

Earlier this year the prestigious Motor Boat & Yachting Magazine annual awards were revealed. Winners were picked across multiple categories covering pretty much all the options available to potential motorboat purchasers. Jeanneau, unsurprisingly, received nominations in several categories but probably the most hotly contested was ‘Sportsboats and RIBs’.

The winner? Jeanneau’s fantastic Cap Camarat 9.0 WA!

Below is the release from MBY Magazine after the awards were announced:

The Cap Camarat range has always been one of practical, value-conscious boating. Not ostentatious but solid and dependable, a natural step into the world of boating and an ideal tool for a family to enjoy themselves on the water.

The 9.0 is different though, it still has these important elements but with this model, Jeanneau has created a boat that will also keep the driver happy. With a pair of 250hp Yamaha outboards it will achieve a top speed just short of 50 knots and cruise anywhere from the mid-teens to the mid-40s. The hull rides softly and grips tenaciously when pushed from the helm but at no point feels like it might turn around and bite you.

It’s a versatile craft too, available as either a walkaround with a sociable bow area or as a centre console with a cuddy cabin for overnight stays or some shelter if the weather turns. 

Jeanneau could have so easily built a safe and sensible 30ft sportsboat but instead it created a boat with the creature comforts expected of a Cap Camarat and endowed it with real ability and exhilarating performance, which must be applauded.

The Cap Camarat also took the prize in ‘best for fun’ category at the International Best of Boats Awards (BOB) in Berlin, November 2018.

The Cap Camarat’s traditional V-shaped hull was designed by Michaël Peters at Jeanneau. Ensuring stability and excellent seakeeping as well as secure handling at speed – perfect for family cruising or those more sporty days out! The layout and utilisation of space on Jeanneau’s Cap Camarat 9.0 WA make her the ideal boat for day trips or weekend cruises. The vast cockpit benefits from a helm station with seating for two, a well-equipped port-side galley and plenty of storage options. Inside, the Cap Camarat 9.0 WA features a very large double berth, a saloon that also converts into a double berth, a head compartment with separate shower, a breakfast area and again, plenty of storage options.
