The stability of a catamaran design has found its way into a new very practical application in the form of the yacht tender Takacat. This innovative lightweight design from New Zealand is now being represented by Multihull Central.
Takacat dinghies range from 2.4m to 3.8m with either an open bow or closed tapered bow. Designed to save weight, they offer superior stability and are an affordable alternative to the regular cumbersome RIBs currently available for cruisers.
With large pontoons on each side, the Takacat doesn’t lean over and become unstable like traditional dinghies. She drives well through all conditions with the floats providing the hull shape and stability. New technology in inflatable design means the lightweight floor (bridgedeck) is both firm when in use, but compact when deflated.
Most noteworthy the entire boat can fit into just a couple of small bags. This makes it ideal to transport or stow onboard for passages. Weighing in at half the weight of a aluminum RIB, your performance isn’t compromised either.
Customers can view them at our Sydney marina in Annandale and they will also be available to purchase through the Mutlihull Central website. We will display them at the upcoming boat shows including the Gold Coast Marine Expo and Sanctuary Cove Boat Show.
