The new catamaran inflatable 460LX "The Biggie" is the flagship of the Takacat family. It will celebrate its European premiere at BOOT 2022 in hall 9 - booth 9E60.
The Takacat 460LX, also called "The Biggie", is the largest model in the Takacat family of catamaran inflatable boats with a length of 4.6m. With a continuous width of 180cm, a length of 460cm and tube diameters of 55cm each, it is one of the largest portable inflatable boats on the market. Despite its size, it can be stowed away in two mobile carrying bags. Thanks to the dismountable transom and a special folding technique, the complete inflatable boat fits into a carrying bag of only 115 x 40 x 30cm (L/W/H). The high-pressure floor, the oars, the complete transom and the optional wheels are stowed in the second carrying bag of 100 x 40 x 30cm (L/W/H). The 460LX weighs 56Kg when assembled, is designed for 8 people and can be operated with a maximum of a 20HP outboard motor. The special thing about the Takacats, however, is the low weight, the aerodynamic bow design and the early planing phase due to the light catamaran construction, which means that pleasant planing speeds can be achieved even with smaller engines and much less energy is required, especially interesting when using electric motors. Length runs - with its 4.6m, the 460LX cruises smoothly over choppy water, making it the optimal model for coastal cruising, bays and large lakes or as a crew tender.
