Takacat 240L/280L - the folding catamaran dinghy

The catamaran dinghi with open bow
The TAKACAT-L models T240L and T280L, specially designed as catamaran dinghis, captivate with their open bow for easy entry/exit and their low weight. The T240L is a light tender/dinghi, weighs only 20Kg and can easily be stowed on or below deck, e.g. for sailing and motor yachts. Due to its low weight, the TAKACAT-L is not only interesting as a tender or dinghy, but also for motorhomes or caravans.
Depending on the model, the L models can be motorised with an outboard motor up to 6/8PS (240L/280L). Both L-models are also equipped with an overpressure safety valve at the rear. An additional bilge valve is installed in the lower area of the transom plate.
The Travel 1003CS/1103CS electric outboards from Torqeedo are an optimal motorization for these tender models. When the TAKACAT-L is stored on deck or in the motorhome, the electric outboard can be stowed with its carrying bag without any special storage, petrol or engine oil.

Permatrim Hydrofoils - Improve the Handling and Performance characteristics of your boat

Eliminate Cavitation Problems
Boats that suffer from cavitation issues will benefit greatly from using a permatrim. By increasing the size of the factory cavitation plate, by up to four times, and the additional benefit of the turned down sides, Permatrim reduces the chance for the propeller to draw in air that will create an air pocket around the Propeller - one of the causes of cavitation/ventilation. By having a larger cavitation plate & the turned down sides, the Permatrim condenses/compresses the water around the Propeller helping eliminate the chance of air being drawn into the Propeller.

Common Cavitation Problems/symptoms:
  • Motor revs higher & noise level increases sharply but speed decreases
  • Motor could be trimmed too high, for the conditions or when transitioning to get onto the Plane.
  • Disturbed/aerated water from the hull hitting the Propeller.
  • Cavitation could be caused by badly placed transducer or through hull fitting
  • A hollow in the hull (also called a hook in the hull), worn/bent Propeller
  • From initial start – to get onto the plane, the engine seems to rev a lot but the boat stuggles to get up on the plane, you could have cavitation ventilation issues.
  • Revving hard but not going anywhere.
  • When cornering, the outboard motor revs up yet the boat stalls and the engine rpm & noise level increases sharply.
A Permatrim will help eliminate these Problems

Lowers planing speed
By increasing the size of the Factory cavitation plate by up-to four times, the Permatrim will provide a lot more stern lift, so you can stay on the Plane at a lower speed. In rough conditions it is far safer to be able to stay on the plane at a slower speed. Permatrim will help you do this by increasing the stern lift & trim control of your outboard/sterndrive.

Gets boats onto the plane faster
By increasing the size of the cavitation plate by up-to four times, the Permatrim increases the stern lift and trim control, to plane faster. The Permatrim extends out past the end of the cavitation plate, to catch the wasted water from the top of the Propeller (the hump of water out the back), holding this water down and forcing it rearward, this increases the stern lift and thrust from your outboard/sterndrive from the same amount of rpm. By having more stern lift and trim control, this allows you to holds the bow down and stern higher, so the boat will plane out flatter, which will help the boat rise up onto the plane easier, also providing better forward vision from not raising the bow so high.

Improve Rough Water Handling
A Permatrim enables a lot more control of trim angles and the ability to eliminate porpoising, and allows you to plane at a lower speed. Trim control is important as you need to be able to adjust your bow to suit the conditions and make your boating excursions safer and more comfortable. As the permatrim is up to four times larger than the factory cavitation plate, your trim control is greatly enhanced allowing you to trim the bow down hard in a rough head sea or will allow you to hold the bow higher in a following sea , giving you a lot more trim control, and a more comfortable ride.

Because a Permatrim gives you more trim control and stern lift, eliminating Porpoising issues is a breeze, just a small adjustment down on the trim button is usually all it takes to stop the Porpoising.
