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

aluminium transom

The transom is the transfer unit between the outboard engine and the boat. We have created an incredibly stiff, lightweight aluminium transom using unique design and quality materials. The triple fold provides strength and direct power transfer from the engine to the boat while also being very light. The whole transom is finished to super yacht level with the AkzoNobel powercoat system.

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.

PORTABLE

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 possible (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.

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.

It has that joy-ride, hair-in-the-wind experience that leaves you wanting to get out in the boat all the time.

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

High pressure air deck with thermo-welded seams - providing that important rigidity to your True Kit.

WHY WE'RE DIFFERENT

Our commitment to producing outstanding inflatable boats has created the head-turning True Kit Discovery, 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
True Kit conducted extensive sea trials of the landing craft bow to ensure that it was capable of handling rough conditions
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.

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.

What is the difference between the Navigator and Discovery Models?

Both boats share exactly the same materials and construction methods. The designs also share a similar catamaran platform which offers superior stability and performance when compared to conventionally designed inflatables. The main difference is in the bow section. The Navigator is primarily designed for yacht tender purposes and has a high volume tube running all the way around the bow. This means you can load the dinghy up with more people and gear and have them close to the bow. The Discovery has parallel tubes which are tapered towards the bow. This creates less volume in the bow area which increases performance and also allows the bow to be pushed close to the water when weight is placed there.
