Takacat 380

Fast, Stable Catamaran Design for Ultimate Fun

The lightweight, low resistance design of Takacat boats provides quick and level planing, exceptional stability, and fuel economy. The low draft and buoyant inflatable catamaran construction allows for navigation through extremely shallow water and provides the ability to get further up on a beach or ramp before grounding the boat.

Big Adventure in an Ultra-Portable Package

All Takacat boats can be packed small enough to be checked as baggage on a plane, thrown into bench seat storage, or tossed into an SUV trunk for a weekend adventure — no need for a trailer.

Takacat Open Bow

Fast-Draining Open Bow and Tube Transom®

The unique Tube Transom® design of Takacat combined with the fully open bow allows the deck to continuously drain. Fast and constant draining keeps the deck dry and prevents water from building up inside the boat, a great advantage when sensitive gear is on board or when towing.

Make a Splash with Bold Colors

Takacat boats are now available in seven bold colors, including two camouflage options. Show your team colors, be more visible (or less), or add a bit of color and personality to your adventures.

Durable Hull Tube Construction

All Takacat boat models are available in both PVC and Hypalon fabric construction. Standard tubes are fabricated from durable custom-made 0.9mm, 1000 denier PVC. Digital Camo and Woodland Camo color options are built using thicker 1mm, 1200 denier PVC for extra rub and tear resistance in flooded timber and murky, backcountry water. All models can be custom ordered in Hypalon fabric for exceptional UV protection and resistance to extreme temperatures.

Non-skid PVC on the air deck floor makes for slip-free fun! Ultra UV Stabilized, it will not get chalky over time.


The open transom and raised floor keeps the water out and the floor dry. Any water that does find its way in, will go straight out the back.


Catamaran design makes for efficient and easy rowing while also tracking well, even in a crosswind. (420LX does not include oars)


Halkey-Roberts fill valve for fast, reliable inflation and deflation. Pressure relief valves prevent over-pressurization when left in the hot sun.


Aerodynamic tapered bow is designed to ensure you go over the top of rough and choppy waters. It also reduces windage over flared bow designs.


Fixed oarlocks and Velcro straps ensure you won’t be up the creek without a paddle!


Designed with a single seam on each hull. Seam is sealed using a chemical bonding gluing system and a quadruple overlap of material to ensure airtightness, even after years of folding.


Innovative Tube Transom Design has quick attachment points for rod holders and beach launching wheels.


Lifting handle at the stern for easy portage, even with a light outboard still attached.


Extra large diameter tubes for added carry capacity and comfort.


Shallow Draft is a huge advantage when navigating shallow water and allows you to get further up the beach or ramp before the hull of the boat grounds.


Heavy-duty rubber under-tube protection for beaching and transport ease.


Not a flat bottom. Catamaran hull allows for a lower wetted surface area making Takacat boats much faster with less horsepower.

The innovative and versatile Takacat is the best inflatable dinghy for cruising with the whole family.

Frequently Asked Questions

The Takacat catamaran hull design is fast, stable, safe, and comfortable. The fast draining removable Tube Transom® is simple and portable, which makes Takacat one of the most versatile inflatable boats in the market.

The Takacat line of boats are designed for quick and easy assembly. No need to mess around with heavy and complicated floorboard systems, our high pressure air deck floor fits perfectly in place while it inflates. Inflation with the supplied manual pump takes about 15 minutes, depending on the size of the boat and your urgency. Inflation with an electric pump takes about 8-10 minutes

The innovative, Tube Transom® enables the Takacat hulls to be rolled-up like a swiss cake roll which makes it easier to store & transport than traditional inflatable boats. The big advantage comes by way of weight savings which makes carrying the boat easier, but also makes the boat nimbler on the water and faster with smaller HP outboards.

The Takacat LX and Sport Series offer true portability. They can be fully deflated and will fit into most cars and SUVs. They can be transported either inflated or deflated on roof racks. They can be stored easily on boat decks because of their size and weight, they sit flat on deck without the need for a cradle. The LX and Sport models take up very little space when packed in their bags for storage. Takacat LX and Sport models offer an unparalleled experience from storage, transport to on the water, there is no better!

A. Takacat boats utilize a catamaran hull design, this means that the boats have far less wetted surface and are much more efficient on the water than flat-bottom or V-hull boats. You can use less horsepower than other boats to achieve the same speeds.

Electric outboards are more efficient when used on a Takacat and are a great option.

The most common gas outboard is the 6hp. It is lightweight and portable which completes the package for the Takacat. The longer the boat you choose, the faster it will be and it will be able to plane with more weight. For example, a 420LX with a 6hp will plane with 440 lbs on board.

If you do not have a local dealer or are located outside of North America, please email for replacement parts inquiries.

Yes you can! We would recommend equipping your Takacat with chaps for UV protection (and to keep the bird poop off) and you may also need to apply Inflatable Bottom Paint (yes, that is a real thing) to contend with any growth in your waters.
