Inflatable Tender / Dinghy
Savor the freedom of life on the water. Versatile and durable, the Takacat LX Series is just as dependable for some on-water fun as it is for transport! Whether the day calls for an excursion to explore secret coves or seaside destinations, a trip to shore for provisions, or a night on the town, the Takacat LX Series is the ideal small inflatable tender for yachts or large vessels. Lightweight premium rubber construction provides superior stability for loading and ding-free towing. And it can be assembled in minutes for a quick spin around an island or a journey ashore. Go where the day takes you!
Easy & Competent Rowing
The unique catamaran hull design allows Takacat boats to row easily. If you use your dinghy to row to shore and back, this is the only inflatable you should consider!
Outboards aren't 100% reliable, the ease of rowing a Takacat ensures you can always make it to your destination!
Takacat can be fully assembled in about 15 minutes with no tools whenever you’re ready to hit the water. Hulls can be inflated through a standard Halkey-Roberts valve using an electric air pump, or the included hand pump. When it’s time to pack the boat away, simply unplug and push air out of the hulls and roll it to fit in the carry bags. Bags are vented on each side, so the boat can dry out even when put away wet, and stays fresh.
Easy To Board & Self-Draining
The open bow and Tube Transom® make Takacat easy to board and keep the deck dry. The open bow design and shallow draft of Takacat provide stable access to the deck, making it easy to board the boat safely from shore and providing an accessible, firm surface for getting in and out of the water, even for small kids and pets. The revolutionary Tube Transom® means the boat is open on both ends to allow water to constantly drain, so the deck stays dry.
The innovative and versatile Takacat is the best inflatable tender for life on the water.
Versatile & Durable
The flexible catamaran design of the Takacat easily accommodates an outboard, making it a do-it-all workhorse for life on the water. When not being used to take passengers ashore or for provisioning, take it out for a day zooming around islands or scuba diving. The hull tubes are ultra-durable with custom made 3-ply PVC reinforced fabric material, and can be re-tubed simply and cost effectively. Takacat is also available with UV stabilized Hypalon / CSM (Polyethylene Synthetic Rubber) material.
Smooth & Stable Ride
The inflatable hull design and tapered bow of the Takacat skims over the top of rough, choppy water for a smooth and ultra-stable ride. The rigid air-deck floor with anti-skid, anti-UV coating provides maximum traction and low draft makes it easy to pilot the boat through shallows and get into those secret dive spots. Add an outboard for speed, or row with the included oars.
Easy Frictionless Towing
The lightweight and durable inflatable construction of Takacat, along with the unique fully open transom design, prevents the hull from holding water on board which greatly minimizes drag when towing. Takacat can be towed with a 3-point harness using two D-Rings on the hulls of the boat and twin D-Rings on the underside of the floor. Full length rubber reinforcement under the tubes and rubberized rub rails on the sides offer extra protection from dents and dings for both the Takacat and the mothership.
Your tender is your lifeline to land and shallow waters. It is one of the most important pieces of equopment on board your boat. You need a dinghy that will perform day-in and day-out. It shouldn't need to be bailed out and should have multiple ways to propel it. Takacat is the ultimate portable tender that can do everything you can ask of a dinghy while also offering comfort and convenience whenever you venture off from the mothership!
