No trailer. No slip fees. Just pure fun.

One of the more frustrating aspects of owning a boat is paying for a slip or lugging around a trailer. With our boats you need neither of those! Our boats either break down into bags that can fit in most cars, or break down into components that can be transported on top most cars.

All of the boats that Red Beard sells are light enough to be transported by one individual, without compromising quality, durability, fun, and performance. Every component is designed so you can assemble and dismantle the boat using only your hands.

Transporting a TakaCat Catamaran

Our boats can be checked-in as luggage on a plane, or transported via your car's trunk or roof.*

No need to hold back your sense of adventure! Grab the next flight to your favorite tropical locale and check your MiniCat on as luggage. You could hop off the plane and head straight to the water if you’d like!

From the-bag-to-the-water, our boats assemble in as fast as ten minutes.

Aside from being extremely portable, some of our boats can be assembled in as little as ten minutes without the use of any tools.

See how quick and easy it is to start your own boating adventure.

Spend less time lugging, and more time sailing. Some of our boats weigh as little as 70 lbs, so they’re easy to transport from the car or even from a plane.

Perfect for a solo adventure, or a family cruise. Our boats carry between 1 – 4 people. We have options for solo adventures, or big fun for the whole family.
