Like the other versions of the Cap Camarat (WA and DC), the hull of the 5.5 BR is unchanged compared to the other open-hull models, and only the deck plan differs.
The Cap Camarat 5.5 BR focuses on a diverse program that combines water sports, walks, picnics, and fishing. It differs from the American and Nordic offer with a less sophisticated and more practical deck plan, as well as its self-steering cockpit, wide passages and ease of maintenance.
Its deck plan is much more protective with a circulation between the front and the back of the boat by the centre, without a catwalk. The windscreen extends far to the rear, on the sides of the cockpit, and its traffic surfaces are non-slip. This displayed safety makes it an ideal model for a family audience.
It obviously has a bow-rider at the front composed of a U-shaped bench. Unlike the open version, the cockpit is not central but located to starboard. The dashboard receives a 7-inch Lowrance multifunction display.
At the back and over the full width of the cockpit is a fixed bench that can be unfolded to obtain a sunbath of almost 2 meters long. It is also possible to deploy a table and, by pivoting the seats at the front, to form a small deck lounge.
The 5.5 BR at sea is quite remarkable: it does not pitch nose-up, turns short, without too much heel, and has a very good grip; Moreover, it does not slam the water and passes well in the wave by small chop.
The Cap Camarat 5.5 BR can reach a maximum speed of 31.5 knots, with an average fuel consumption of 20.6 liters per hour at a cruising speed of 23.8 knots.
