Takacat FAQs

  • Is a Takacat easy to set up? 

The Takacats are designed for quick and easy assembly. No mucking around with heavy and complicated floorboard systems. Inflation with the supplied manual pump takes 8 – 15minutes depending on the Takacat size and your fitness level. Inflation by our speedy electric pump takes 5 – 8 minutes, depending on the size of Takacat you are inflating.

1. Inflate main tubes to 3psi / 22.5kpa
2. Insert Tube Transom bars. Tip – rub down Tube Transom with soapy water as this will make sliding the transom bars in much easier.
3. Fit motor mount transom boards with supplied eye bolt
4. Insert and inflate floor to 10psi / 65kpa
5. Use webbing straps to connect bow D rings
6. Attach oars
7. Fit outboard motor
8. Check required safety equipment, bylaws and weather conditions prior to departure.

  • Is a Takacat boat easy to deflate and stow? 

The innovative, fully removable transom enables the Takacat to be rolled-up smaller, easier and lighter than traditional inflatable boats that have a fixed transom. A big advantage when it comes to handling, transportation and/or storage. Ideal for the caravan, motor home and foldaway tender markets.

  • Where are Takacat portable inflatable boats manufactured? 

Designed, developed and tested by founder Greg Sowden in Auckland, New Zealand. These versatile inflatable catamaran boats are then CE tested and custom-built in Takacat’s Chinese factory using quality components from around the world.
