Rigid Inflatable Boats (RIBs)
Built for Takacat by Stingray Marine (SA), the Takacat "EXPLORER" and "PREDATOR" Rigid Inflatable Boats are a patented stepped-tunnel design catamaran incorporating thirty years of catamaran technology.
At low speeds, the tunnel creates an air-cushion effect enabling the craft to rise quickly out of the water and to plane with ease. The twin hull construction increases stability and creates a more comfortable ride in choppy conditions.
A fast, stable and reliable craft, the "EXPLORER" and "PREDATOR" may be used as ski or fishing boats, pleasure craft, diving and resort vessels or any work applications requiring exceptional stability and maneuverability.
All Takacat RIBs are made from Hypalon ORCA® * fabric and has a warranty for 5 years.
HULL & DECKING
The Hull and decking in the Takacat RIB range are made of hand laid up Glass Reinforced Polyester (GRP) with all gel coat finish.
