THE T260LX THE PERFECT TENDER

Sleek innovative design, the T260LX is a portable wonder. Our open bow design makes for easy embarking and disembarking when beaching and great when swimming or diving, with our tube design and huge buoyancy makes for an ultra-safe portable tender. With deflectors running the length of each tube the LX series makes for a dry boating experience.  The open transom keeps the boat from holding water on board, making it ideal for towing. An ultra-stable catamaran design is the perfect platform for water activities and transport.

"We have been using the Takacat [T260LX] at Lake Pupuke, MadLoop WindSurf School for about a year now. We have been open for 25 years and used all types of inflatable dinghy. The Takacat is the best inflatable dinghy I have ever used by far.

So stable, so light, so practical.

This boat is a complete winner in every way. I fully recommend anyone and every one to buy a Takacat."
