  • Description

    Have you ever arrived at a lake or beach and wished the adventure could continue where the road ends?  Our True Kit Tactician has been designed for you.  It is made to go places where other boats can't.  Motorhome? Back seat of your small car?  Planes or helicopters?  NO PROBLEM - the Tactician will fit.

    So fast and easy to set up you can go from parking lot to fishing within minutes.  So light that even one person can handle it easily, but with enough carrying capacity to really load it up when you want to.  So stable that you don't get that dreaded kayak-tippy feeling, you can actually stand up to cast out.  The Tactician can be rowed or effortlessly powered by the smallest of outboards.

    Think of the Tactician as a hybrid - merging the best of the tinny and the kayak.  They are ideal for sneaking around coastal areas without scaring all the fish away - the fish will barely sense you are there.  Designed to be accessorised with rod holders, fish finders, tackle-boxes, drift chutes and insulated fish cooler bags.  The Railblaza RibPorts are standard fittings that the oars lock into, but also the rod holders.  The inflatable Tactician rows really well due to the low resistance hull design.

    Every True Kit Tactician is produced using state of the art inflatable technology.  Premium German-made Mehler Valmex® is bonded using the latest thermo-welded seam technology.  Mehler have been producing the highest quality textiles for over 60 years, that's why we use their fabric.  What does this mean for you?  It's not the cheapest fabric, but it means you can head out on the water knowing we have your safety in mind.  Our high pressure AirDecks are extremely rigid and light, yet have fold-away convenience when stored.

    The Tactician is the ultimate portable boat to suit motorhome owners or people who have loved kayak fishing, but now prefer something more comfortable, safer, faster.  It's our most portable boat ever.  Now you can fit your boat anywhere, so take it everywhere.  Keep the adventure going where the road ends.

    Just right for our needs.

    We have a small bus/motor home so. After considering several inflatable boats;- size, weight, packed away capacity, seating, recommended motor size etc, we chose the true kit Tactician, with 2 rod holders & Padded seat/ stow away bag as accessories. We were not disappointed in our decision. It packs away under the bed perfect. Quick to assemble & inflate with the hand pump provided, so much so that our thought of getting an electric pump was dropped. It carries the two of us (and our dog,.. on a carpet mat) easily and is very stable. We chose a 5hp mercury 2 stroke and it moves us along at a good speed. The team at True kit were very helpful & kept us informed on delivery etc. It will be used for fishing & sight seeing around the NZ lakes & waterways. Our only addition will be to get a set of wheels for pulling it down to the waters edge with the motor installed. Just perfect for us.
