And it shows when you see and experience Takacat inflatable catamarans. Our boats are durable, very stable, and designed to meet the needs of both the marine professional and the recreational boater.

The Boats

With a lineup of five unique models, the Takacat inflatable boats has a boat for every activity and need. Every model is built with the signature clever design and solid 3-ply PVC construction that makes Takacat boats a tough, stable and fun option on any water.

Who We Are Image
Why Takacat Image


The development of Takacat inflatable boats was pioneered by company founder Greg Sowden in Auckland, New Zealand. Greg’s leading edge design approach was born from a love of the water and nurtured from a lifetime spent in and around inflatable boats. That depth of experience led him to produce an inflatable catamaran boat that broke the mold.

The Takacat Advantage

Every model in our stable is packed with unique features, making the Takcacat inflatable 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.


Whether you’re looking to explore your favorite fishing spot or take the family out on the open water, Takacat has you covered. The two carrying bags make Takacat compact and easy to transport. The quick assembly time will have you on the water in no time at all.

Tackacat Boats are Used by Recreational Users, and Professional Exploration Teams Alike

“The Takacat dinghy has performed exceptionally well, and I look forward to using it again this upcoming season. One of many good things about it, is the low drag, so we loose virtually no speed towing it (as opposed to a standard dinghy).“

Andreas B. Heide, Professional sailor & explorer

Outboard Powered Image

Extremely Versatile - Takacat Boats Can be Paddled or Outboard Powered

Lightweight, with a shallow draft, the Takacat LX Series boats move easily through the water whether they’re paddled or powered with an outboard. Due to the inflatable construction, the boat is efficient to power with an electric motor in electric-only lakes or reservoirs.
