Construction

  • Tube construction: Tough 0.9mm, 1000 denier custom made PVC, inflate to 3psi. 

  • Anti-UV grade tested to 4-5 out of 5. International Standards ISO 4892-3:2006

  • Air deck floor made from reinforced drop stich to provide a high- tensile rigid core. Inflate to 10psi. Custom made protective anti-skid with additional anti-UV additive, high-pressure laminated heat pressed to top layer for the best durability and rigidity. Second-layer side rail tape making 1.8mm walls and additional air tightness.

  • Easy re-tubing: Unlike conventional ribs or inflatable boats Takacats can be re-tubed simply and cost effectively due to our revolutionary Tube Transom®. Our 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 of damaged tubes re made and re glued to the hull. You can simply order a set of new tubes direct from www.Takacat.com.au.

  • Most inflatable boats require the transom, floor, air decks / drop stich, fittings and fixtures to be glued onto the tubes. So when it comes to the seams we have chosen to use our tried and tested gluing system that we also use through out the rest of the boat. This is ideal for roll-up / portable boats where welded seams can become brittle over time and prone to splitting. 

  • Stainless steel (304) Tube Transom®. 32mm cross beams, 0.25mm side tubes

  • Motor mount made from 18mm marine ply painted

  • Transom eye bolt (316) 10mm thread

Revolutionary Tube-Transom Design®

Takacats innovative new fully removable open Tube-Transom design® enables the inflatable to be deflated, rolled up smaller, easier and lighter than other traditional inflatable boats.  These are big advantages when it comes to transporting or storing your Takacat.  The Takacats are perfect for the caravan, RV motorhome, or the tender market.  Having the removable transom means they are less bulky and weigh approx. 7kg lighter when packed away.

This fully open transom design has no ability to hold water on board, a great advantage when being towed or being used in various conditions.
