The Takacat Advantage

Every model on the team is packed with unique features, making the Takcacat LX Series boats some of the most innovative inflatable boats on the market.

Grid Item 1

Ultra-Portable Storage

No need for the hassle of a trailer or the cost of storage. Pack down the boat into two carry bags and throw it in the trunk, closet, or overhead compartment. The carry bags are vented, so you can even store it wet and it stays fresh.

Grid Item 2

Fast-Draining Removable Tube Transom®

The revolutionary removable Tube Transom® allows the deck to drain continuously, so the boat never holds water. Lightweight stainless steel construction on the tube makes the boat 15 lbs lighter than traditional inflatable boats.

Grid Item 3

Durable Single-Seam Construction

The hulls are constructed with a single seam, rather than the double seams on standard inflatables. Less seam work minimizes the likelihood of damage at the weakest spots of the boat. The seams use a chemically bonded gluing system for durability against brittleness.

Grid Item 4


Lightweight PVC rubber material construction and the sleek Tube Transom® keeps the boat lightweight, making it easy to pilot with the included oars. External oar rowlocks and Velcro straps ensure your oars stay on board with you.

Grid Item 5

Fast & Stable Catamaran Design

The lightweight catamaran style and aerodynamic tapered bow of Takacat glides over the water for smooth, fast travel. The high pressure air deck with non-skid coating creates a rigid platform to keep passengers and cargo steady on the water.

Grid Item 6

Easy-Entry Open Bow Design

The open bow, raised deck and rigid air deck floor makes boarding passengers and cargo effortless from beach, dock, and even a larger vessel. Combined with the shallow draft of the boat, entry and exit from the water is just as simple, even for small children and pets.
