Takacat from New Zealand
Are you looking for ‘rigid-hull performance’ from a tender, but without the disadvantage of excess weight and inconvenience of a RIB (Rigid Inflatable Boat)? If so, Takacat Lite X is the solution. The most advanced, high performance, light-weight, compact and portable inflatable catamaran boat available!


Takacat’s innovative catamaran hull design, and open (completely removable) transom enables the Takacat to be rolled-up smaller, easier and lighter than traditional inflatable boats; a big advantage when it comes to handling, transportation and storage. The boat is fully collapsible and rolls up neatly into two bags (tube bag: 120x35x40cm; accessories bag: 95x40x25cm).

Also, the unique Takacat Lite open bow design, makes boarding from the water or land much easier than conventional boats, a great safety feature ideal for people who like to swim, snorkel and dive.

The large diameter tubes enhance the Takacat’s performance. The low resistance hull provides quick and level planning, exceptional stability and excellent fuel economy. When you board your Takacat from the mother-ship, or when enjoying a spot of fishing, you will really appreciate the stability of the Takacat design compared to traditional monohulls.

You can hoist / hang a Takacat tender on a davit lifting system or hoist onto a foredeck. The unique open transom design means no water will be held onboard when raining etc.

1x air deck floor, inflatable seat, manual pump & gauge, repair kit (no glue), oar set, 2 x carry bags.

The open-transom LX is available in a tough Korean Denier PVC material, in which the seams are chemically bonded with glue to ensure durability against brittleness and proven longevity in hot, humid climates. Where enhanced durability is required, Hypalon is available as an optional upgrade.

The prices quoted EXCLUDE transportation/delivery from the Factory to Hong Kong. Currently the shipping cost of getting a boat to Monster Marine in Clearwater Bay is around HK$2,000. From there you may pick up or you/we can arrange a man with a van delivery at cost price. or WhatsApp +852-91993860.

To keep costs down, we operate an online business - we don't have a shop or showroom. And, we don't (usually) keep boats in stock, but there are several Takacat's in Hong Kong and lots of very happy owners. Also, plenty of very positive online reviews.



    Takacat Lite
    There are plenty of cheap tenders on the market, which makes it difficult to compare one boat against another - without physically seeing and in reality, using a boat over a period of time. You cannot and should not try to compare online simply based on price! Takacat's have been on the market for over 10 years now - they are sold all around the world - and have evolved to become a much loved, tough, capable and great value boat that performs and survives very well indeed in the hot humid conditions in Hong Kong and elsewhere. At Monster Marine, we only sell products that we truly like - we are simply not interested in cheap tat!!! The Takacat Lite is the perfect boat for people who like to swim, snorkel or dive where the open-bow design makes boarding from the water easier than all other boats.

    The hulls are constructed with a single seam, rather than the double seams on standard inflatables. Less seam-work minimizes the likelihood of damage at the weakest spots of the boat i.e. where the PVC or Hypalon is joined together. The seams are chemically bonded together with glue which has been proven the best system for durability. A glued seam is more pliable for when the boat is folded, and won't crack or split like a welded seam can. If a welded seam does split, it is near impossible to repair, whilst glued seams can be repaired easily.

    Standard Tubes: Tough 0.9mm, 1000 denier Korean PVC, Glued seams, inflate to 3 psi. Air deck floor: 100mm thick, 0.8mm walls, intertwined polyester fibre, 1000 denier Korean. NEW 1mm PVC anti-skid protective layer (fabric to fabric bonding) on top of the high pressure air deck floor for ultimate durability, inflate to 10psi.

    Hypalon is an upgrade option made to order with an approximate 2-3 month lead time. A Hypalon 260, for example, costs HK$24,888 including delivery to MM Hong Kong. From a price point of view, PVC is hard to beat. If you use your boat a few months of the year and/or you don’t leave it fully exposed to the elements 24/7, you can expect a lifespan of between 5 - 10 years from PVC. Hypalon will provide greater longevity as it offers the best UV and abrasion resistance, colour stability and air-tightness in addition to great suppleness and high adhesion values, but at a price.

    Irrespective of whether you choose PVC or Hypalon, should it eventually be necessary to replace the tubes, the process is easy and cost-effective, unlike conventional ribs or inflatable boats. This is because the fully removable high pressure air deck and tubes are not permanently attached to a hull or transom. All you need do is order a new set of tubes and you basically have a new boat! Easy!

    The prices quoted EXCLUDE transportation/delivery from the Factory to Hong Kong. Currently, a transportation cost of HK$2,000 is added for delivery of your boat to Monster Marine in Clearwater Bay. From there you can pick up or arrange collection - or we may be able to arrange for SF Express to deliver with the cost payable on delivery. If you have any queries or WhatsApp +852-91993860. Full documentation will be provided to assist the purchaser with licensing at MARDEP if needed. Warranty provided by manufacturer Air Yacht Ltd.
