Takacat’s large diameter tubes plus catamaran hull design provide exceptional stability. When you are out on the water, if boarding from the mother ship or enjoying a spot of fishing, you will really appreciate the stability of your Takacat tender.

A light weight, low resistance catamaran hull design provides quick and level planning, exceptional stability and fuel economy. Boasting a shallow draft with loads of buoyancy also allows for extremely shallow water navigation plus the ability to get further up the beach or ramp before grounding.

Transport & storage options
The new L Series is light and easy to handle. No hard hull & fittings to damage your main boat or car. Easily lifted on-top of a hard top or simply pulled into the cockpit or onto the bow. Davits can also easily be fitted on this clever tender due to long straight sides and you also have the options of simply deflating and packing away.

Takacat stands for Quality and develop their boats with premium materials and state of the art manufacturing. Takacat recently moved to more environmentally friendly cotton wrapping of their boats for delivery.
