Jeanneau Cap Camarat 7.5 DC Series 2: The Next Generation Day Cruiser!
The new Cap Camarat Day Cruiser line with its sleek lines and protective cockpit, allows for all types of marine activities, as well coastal cruising – with family and friends.
The Cap Camarat 7.5 DC Series 2 features extended lines and a wraparound windscreen, while offering an entirely redesigned cockpit. The generous U-shaped cockpit saloon, which is modular and secured by a gate, enables ease of movement around the boat and to the wide swim platforms, for easy access to the water. The aft bench seat features a reversible seat back, enabling an alternate orientation toward the aft for swimming and a sundeck on the starboard swim platform.
This new model is not short on cruising comforts: the interior is voluminous with wide windows in the deck and hull. It offers a generously sized double berth with a view of the sea, good storage areas and a separate head compartment. Cruising of course is safe and comfortable, with a co-pilot bench seat facing the sea and a perfectly integrated Bimini (or cabriolet top), all with the famous Michael Peters designed hull. Its more than just a Day Cruiser – it’s a classical ‘weekender’!
When you step into the cockpit, the layout of the new 7.5 DC is easy to understand. It features a full beam aft bench with a cushion-topped walk through to starboard, plus a port bench that merges with the co-pilot’s seat to create an unbroken C-shaped seating section that wraps nicely around the cockpit edge. To make the most of the deck space the cockpit’s furniture is finished off with a rotating helm seat to starboard and a set of moulded foredeck steps to port of the dash. When you come to a standstill, the rotating helm seat and the reversible backrest on the co-pilot’s bench enable you to exchange the five forward-facing seats for a seven-person dining station. For sunbathing you can fill the central deck space with a cushioned infill, creating a large family sun lounger without obstructing the passageway fore and aft. A perfect recipe for a great day cruiser! There are additional touches as well such as the infill for the sun lounger is not made of heavyweight plywood but from lightweight aluminium. It weighs virtually nothing enabling you to manoeuvre it easily and there are many satisfying elements such as this to make your life that bit easier.
The design of the aft arrangement on the 7.5 DC also impresses. The Series 2 takes advantage of the long swim platforms with a set of simple cushions that turn the entire portside into a full-length, sun lounger. Elevated aft mouldings keep you secure and the combination of the stainless arch over the engine well, dedicated rail for the starboard platform and the top grab rails make movement in and around this part of the boat very easy.
Making your way below deck you find the primary forward storage space can be accessed by hinging up the bed, complete with mattress, on a powerful ram, with a further compartment beneath the forward-most part of the bed. There is plenty of room to move around below deck as well. There is also a transverse single bed beneath the forward part of the cockpit sole. Tucked away behind the removable ladder that brings you down from the cockpit, it offers a place for an adult guest or a couple of small children to spend the night on.
Engine options up to 300bhp are available but with Yamaha’s impressive F250 outboard motor 30 knots is available in approximately eight seconds and it can achieve well over 40 knots at wide-open-throttle.
Whilst the 7.5 DC S2 is certainly quick and agile, it’s also quiet and solid. The wind deflection created by the long wraparound screen is also outstanding, for all occupants.
Jeanneau has worked hard to make its new Day Series 2 cruiser as simple to use as possible, and it really does show. It looks slick, it feels solid, it cruises beautifully and it’s full of great design features.
