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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
“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
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.
