Innovative Tube Transom is open to allow for quick draining. No more sloshing water or soggy gear.

2

Open bow provides safe and easy boarding and exiting from the beach and boarding onto the boat from the water by swimmers and divers.

3

Inner and outer grab lines provide infinite seating options with comfortable and ergonomic hand holds.

4

Included oars, in combination with the catamaran hull design, make the LX Series one of the best rowing inflatable dinghies on the market.

5

Halkey-Roberts inflation valve allows for fast inflation and deflation. The pressure relief valves prevent damage by over pressurization when left in the hot sun.

6

Innovative PVC anti-skid material remains grippy even when wet. It's even comfortable for bare feet. Anti-skid material is ultra UV stabilized so it won’t fade and provides UV protection to the air deck floor.

Pinched bow reduces windage and glides over chop and waves without getting passengers wet.

2

Oar retainers keep the oars attached to the boat. Great for adjusting course when drifting down a river.

3

Quadruple overlap seam means your Takacat will remain air tight for years of frequent use.

4

Low profile design provides better visibility for the operator. The bow will stay below the horizon, even when plowing at low speeds.

5

Rubber rub rail provides extra protection from docks and other boats.

6

Multi-chamber tubes come standard on 380LX and 420LX boats for added safety and redundancy for longer trips and for challenging conditions.

1

Wide rubber strip under each tube protects against frequent beachings.

2

Raised center floor allows air to cushion the ride in choppy weathers, no hard slapping.

3

Smaller bows with less displacement means less splash, even when motoring into the wind.

4

Bow D-Rings hold the floor in place so the floor doesn’t shift or pop out.
