"It's great to fish from and it also better to row than my Canoe!" Timo, South Island lake fisherman, NZ
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 creates a dry floor surface as no water stays 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 and new bung set-up.
This is a big advantage over mono hull inflatables as they tend to hold all the water that comes into the boat in the hull as it’s below the water line. This can make them extremely heavy to handle and sacrifices performance as well as been difficult to drain.
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.
"Its a fantastic design and even with my 2 1/2 hp propane outboard it moves it along quite well. Its a perfect light handy set up. I have it hanging off the back of a Lagoon Power 43. Good job, great product!" R Appelbaum, NY, USA
New EVA deck grip / protection
A 5mm closed cell foam that provides grip and protection to the high pressure air deck floors. It's extremely comfortable and also adds rigidity and extra positive buoyancy. When placing your order "basic" means no EVA deck grip, "standard" means with the new EVA deck grip.
