Takacat - LiteX Series Boats
Unparalleled engineering and development from the Takacat LX Series
We invite you to have a look at the innovative design features that make the LX Series the most exciting inflatable boat on the market.
Takacat’s original open bow design provides safety and convenience when entering and exiting. The inflatable high-pressure air floor offers an ultra-stable surface for on/off-boarding from land or water.
Inner and outer grab lines provide safe handholds so you can safely and comfortably sit anywhere. The grab lines and d-rings also serve as an easy and reliable pickup point for most davit systems.
Non-skid PVC on the air deck floor creates a ridgid slip-free surface providing structural integrity while maintaining portability. Ultra UV Stabilized, it will not get chalky over time. The T340LX and above come with a fin so that the floor can be used as a Stand Up Paddle Board.
Catamaran design makes for efficient and easy rowing while also tracking well, even in a crosswind. The catamaran design also ensures the boat tracks well while being towed.
The open transom and raised floor keeps the water out and the floor dry. Any water that does find its way in, will go straight out the back. You can leave your bailers or half-empty milk jugs on shore!
Halkey-Roberts fill valve for fast, reliable inflation and deflation. Pressure relief valves prevent over-pressurization when left in the hot sun.
High chin refers to the long waterline from the tip of the bow toward the center of the boat. This waterline allows for a greater hull speed! It also glides over waves without splashing passengers.
Fixed oarlocks and Velcro straps allow the Oars to be easily stowed and ready for use. The LX Series is very easy for a single person to row.
The T260LX, T300LX, and T340LX have single chamber hulls. The T380LX, T420LX, and T460LX have double chamber hulls. Double chamber hulls make the larger boats more robust, but take long to inflate.
Lifting handle at the stern for easy portage, even with a light outboard still attached.
Even though the Takacat is multihulled, the bow still comes to a point. This allows for increased tracking similar to a hard dinghy without sacrificing the stability of a catamaran.
The Airdeck floor inflates on the inside of the boat and is secured to the outer shell that connects the two pontoons with a strap.
Shallow Draft is a huge advantage when navigating shallow water and allows you to get further up the beach or ramp before the hull of the boat grounds. In addition, the raised center floor provides for extra cushion while riding in rough waters!
Heavy-duty, puncture resistant, rubber under-tube protection for beaching and transport ease.
The catamaran-style dinghy provides superior stability to a traditional dinghy or RIB. Catamaran hull allows for a lower wetted surface area making Takacat boats much faster with less horsepower.
The ultimate portable watercraft, perfect for your next adventure.
The Takacat LX Series is the most portable, versatile inflatable on the market. Perfect in a variety of situations. Based on customer experience, we have put together the most common uses for the LX Series boats below.

The Takacat LX Series makes even the most remote hunting spot accessible with an inflatable catamaran design that skims the surface of marsh flats or flooded timber and cuts through rough choppy saltwater.
