Hi Rod. We had a great weekend down the bottom end of Waiheke and once again the True kit 2.5 m was a glamour. We had Lynda’s parents out for the day who are both in there 80s and got them ashore at Man of War for a few wines. This would not have been possible with the old inflatable as it was just to unstable and deep to step into. It was so easy for them to step off the duck board and onto the flat floor which is so nice on the feet plus being able to step off the front when you get to shore was perfect. The stability of these boat is something i have never seen before. Also the fact i have it deflated inside the boat now and out of the weather while i’m away is exactly what i wanted.

In its folded and bagged configuration the True Kit range is very portable and fits nicely into the boot of even the smallest car. Getting from bag to boat is easy and quick. Quality is the initial impression. They are immaculately presented and offer clean lines and sturdy construction.
Without a large, rigid hull to drag through the water, planing speeds were easy to achieve. Acceleration is instant with the air deck rising clear of the water to give a nice cushioning effect to the ride which was dry and comfortable in the left-over slop.

When we purchased our launch, we needed a new tender. Our first point of call was TrueKit. We had heard from other TrueKit customers that these tenders were amazing, and wow, we weren't disappointed! The quality of our new 3m Navigator was superb. It was very simple to inflate on the back of our boat and the stability of the Navigator was brilliant. Very safe and dry for all my family to use, and in the Winter months, we simply put it away in the bag and keep it inside our boat.

We were looking for a new tender for our launch to replace our rigid bottom inflatable and came across the True Kit range. We purchased a Navigator 3m and can honestly say its the best tender we have ever had or used. would never go back to a conventional inflatable.
They are so stable, easily driven and easy to assemble.

Ordered the Tactician 3.5m Camo - far exceeded expectations. When you open the box and unroll the boat, the thing is so small and light it's almost unbelievable. And then you pump it up and it just gets better - plenty of room for one, comfortable for two, amazingly stable and rigid, yet still small and easy enough to carry by myself. You can spot the quality materials and attention to details! Extremely happy with the tactician.
