catamaran efficiency

The Discovery inflatable catamaran hull has significantly less drag than a typical deep-v hull. This allows for much smaller, lighter, more affordable and more fuel-efficient outboard engines. You need less horsepower to enjoy a thrilling ride

True Kit Tactician - the portable inflatable boat - inflatable fishing kayak
lightweight

We strive to keep the weight out of our inflatable boat range to make our dinghies manageable by anyone. Carrying and rowing these boats is a breeze, and for our larger designs we have our exclusive QuickLok Dingy Launching Wheels. 

Whether you are using your True Kit as a tender and need to pull it onboard the mothership, or your True Kit is the water-going extension of your caravan, keeping it light is critical. The secret is in our thermo-welded seams and superior fabrics, which help us to remove all unnecessary weight from the boat.

PORTABILITY

All True Kit inflatable boats are designed to be packed down and travelled with. We use the finest German-made fabrics that are flexible and durable to be folded and unfolded again and again. Because our boats are so portable, you can take one anywhere.

True Kit inflatables are easily handled in the bag - they are so portable
thermo-welded seams

The seam can be an inflatable boat's Achilles Heel - or the strongest part.  We choose to thermo-weld the seams on our boats  to create the strongest bond available (a permanent mechanical bond).  A welded seam on a True Kit inflatable actually becomes stronger than the fabric itself. Don't settle for glued seams.

True Kit partner with Railblaza to bring you the Ribports installed on the tubes of every True Kit. You can clip in oars, rod holders, lights and many other fittings into these ports.

•Mehler uses the most advanced technology to ensure their high quality, German made textiles are longer lasting

•The Valmex® fabric demonstrates superior flexibility, elasticity, airtightness and resistance against mechanical damage and UV

•Valmex® is recyclable

•Manufactured in Germany under the internationally recognised standard of quality: ISO 9001:2008

catamaran stability

Experience what we call "stand up stability". The nature of inflatable catamarans means all the buoyancy is on the outside. This provides an incredibly stable platform for stepping in and out of the dinghy.

Highly stable True Kit Tactician - you can stand up to cast out for fishing

"We bought the True Kit Tactician after a lot of research. We needed a boat that we could keep in the back of the house bus and use when required. It performs well for the two of us. And a lot of fish landed from it" - Herman & Dianne Badenhorst

KEY COMPONENTS IN EVERY TRUE KIT

Premium Valmex® fabric

Dedicated to true quality, we only use German-made UV-resistant Valmex®.

Precision thermo-welded seams

Welded, not glued, creating an unbreakable bond built to outperform and outlast the competition.

Ultra rigid AirDeck

Our AirDecks are built with thermo-welded seams for durability and covered with Valmex® Skidproof textured cover for grip and protection.

WHY WE'RE DIFFERENT

Our commitment to producing outstanding inflatable boats has created the versatile Tactician, which is clearly no ordinary inflatable boat. 

Unlike a conventional bow, this design ensures that swimmers can exit and return to the boat easily. The bow shape also makes boarding from your yacht, launch or the dock much safer
We have created an incredibly stiff, lightweight structure using unique shapes and quality materials. The triple fold provides strength and direct power transfer from the engine to the boat while also being very light.
The amazing design, construction and portability of the True Kit Tactician means you can take it nearly anywhere. Reach those places no other boats can reach. Explore those seldom explored waterways...

Repair Kit

Is it ok to fold and unfold the boat multiple times?

Yes. We specifically designed our entire True Kit range with folding the boats up in mind.  This is one of the reasons we use the highest quality fabrics and construction available. Cheaper fabrics lose their flexibility and durability over time compared to Valmex® which maintains its suppleness over years of use.

Is the Tactician easy to set up and pack down?

Yes.  Our boats are the easiest boats in the world to both set up and pack down.  There are no nuts and bolts, velcro or tools needed.  Simply insert the floor and inflate the tubes and floor.  Everything automatically gets locked into place.

What guarantee do you offer?

We offer a 5 year limited warranty on new boats.  Warranty terms can be found in the Warranty page on our website True Kit Warranty. Boats built with Valmex® 20 years ago can still be seen zipping around demonstrating exceptionally long life expectancy.

Great little fishing vessel

We bought the True Kit Tactician after a lot of research. We needed a boat that we could keep in the back of the house bus and use when required. Not having the will to tow a trailer. It performs well for the two of us. And a lot of fish landed from it. No problems with the actual boat or the Supplier.

Whole family enjoyed a full day boating. Very portable, easy to assemble. Everything worked as it should. Used a 3.3hp motor on the back. Very easy to attach. Thanks! Steve

DINKS- the Dinghy

The most amazing tender for two! We have been testing in Sydney Harbour with a 2.5hp Suzuki - 5.4 Knots 2 up with luggage! Great fun. Can't wait to take her to Raja Ampat.
