Quick and easy set-up / roll up inflatable boats

Along with the larger tubes for better all round performance and stability; the all-new Takacat Lite has been designed with a fully removable high-pressure air deck floor system. 

The removable air-deck when in place creates a dry floor surface due to it's buoyancy. No water sits on top of the deck. Only a very small amount if any water can actually be held under the air deck due to the catamaran hull design. 

This is a big advantage over mono hull inflatables as they tend to hold all the water that comes into the boat in the V it’s below the water line. This can make them extremely heavy to handle both in and out of the water and also sacrifices performance 
until drained.

Unlike roll up inflatable boats that have a built in air deck floor, the Takacat has a secondary floor between the air deck and potential abrasions and hazards when beaching.

If you are using the Takacat as a portable boat and setting up on location you will also find a good weight advantage as the floor can now be put in after the boat is inflated.

EVA protective deck grip

This exciting new development is a 5mm closed cell foam that provides grip and protection to the high pressure air deck floors. It's extremely comfortable and adds rigidity and extra positive buoyancy. 

Additional EVA pads with 3M backing will soon be for sale so that you can stick pads anywhere on your inflatable boat that requires extra 
grip or protection. 

Big on Safety & stability

Trying to get out of the water and back into a dinghy (or any boat for that matter) can be a very difficult and even dangerous situation.

The unique bow design of the Takacat Lite is one of the features that makes it a truly exceptional boat. Our scuba diver customers love the Takacat Lite. The easy of entry is also appreciated by kids and the not-so-young.

The Takacat Lite comprises of 5 airtight compartments making it a very safe craft. Add to this the ability to hold no water and catamaran stability you're looking at your perfect light tender and or portable fun boat.
