Takacat inflatables are designed to be lightweight and use innovative materials.

The open Tube Transom® also provides significant weight advantages and allows you to leave the bailer at home.
Easy launching & boarding from the water when diving or kite-surfing, safe and comfortable fishing, and nearly limitless other uses and possibilities await you with this innovative and cutting-edge dinghy.

Takacat tubes are made tough using 0.9mm, 1000 denier custom made PVC. The tubes are Anti-UV grade tested to 4.5 out of 5. International Standards ISO 4892-3:2006
Additional Tube Protection
You will find full-length rubber protection running the full length of the boat under the tubes. Rubberized rub rails on the sides of the tubes offer extra protection. The shallow draft of your Takacat allows you to maneuver in shallow waters and get higher up the beach where traditional dinghies are generally stuck out further in knee-deep water.
Unlike conventional ribs or inflatable boats, Takacats can be re-tubed simply and cost-effectively. This is due to the revolutionary tube transom ® & fully removable high-pressure air deck floor system. The tubes are not glued to a hull or transom so there is no hassle or costly process to have your aged or damaged tubes re-made and re-glued to the hull. You can simply order a new set of new tubes direct from Takacat and fit them like you normally do with a Takacat inflatable.
Takacat's air deck floor is made from a reinforced drop-stitch PVC to provide a high-tensile rigid core. Specialized and unique anti-skid made with additional anti-UV additive is high-pressure laminated and heat-pressed to the top layer for the best durability and rigidity. Additional overlapping layers make the walls of the air deck floor 1.8mm thick and provide additional durability and strength.
Takacat's revolutionary and innovative new open Tube-Transom design® can be easily and completely removed from the inflatable tubes for easy deflation and storage. This allows the Takacat to roll up smaller, more easily and lighter than traditional inflatable boats. These are big advantages when it comes to handling, transportation and storage. Takacat's small footprint is ideal for storage on your boat.
This fully open transom design will never hold water on board. This will be a great advantage when the Takacat is being towed, being used in rough or wet conditions, or if you have wet divers, swimmers, or dogs getting in and out of the boat on your adventure.
The removable tube transom® not only offers the best portability, but also the advantage of having a built-in fitting for our quick-release wheel and rod holder accessories.
