Super Stability

Your every movement is balanced due to #1. external buoyancy is at water-level, #2. The added beam in water.

Soft Rides

The huge reverse chines of a KBC pressurize spray under your hull to force your boat to lift through chop.

Level Flotation

The safest accessory for any boat is buoyancy that resists capsizing in the event of flooding, to keep you aboard.

Broaching Resistance

The angle of the wide reverse chine acts like surfboard fins, for both lift and control, on the face of swells.

Dry Ride

No one arrives soaked, when you have a Kapten Boat Collar turning down your spray, giving the driest of rides.

David loves his Boat Collar - lets him get out wider where the bigger fish are.
Fuel Economy

The opposite of a big boat, most vessels with KBCs use less fuel than before, due to the produced lift!

CAN DO FOR YOU

NO WORRIES

Ten years of feedback from Boat Collar customers, means they're better than ever.

WATER TIGHT
SEAL

In 2015, we upgraded to nylon washers for an even longer lasting, superior water-tight seal. Result: dry as toast.

NON-CORROSIVE
FITTING

Screws are coated with Tef-Gel, a very sticky barrier cream that never dries out. Or your boat may suit a glued-on Collar.

LASTING
DURIBILITY

Our original foam had no hard layers, UV protection or external plates, yet you can still see them at the boat ramp.

TUFF-TEC FOAM:
-closed-cell, cross-linked Polyethylene foam
-marine grade
-UV stabilised
-Fire retardant
-petro-chemical stabilised
-hard inner layer, for strong fitting
-hard outer layer, for duribility of use

A STABLE BOAT IS NOT JUST ABOUT COMFORT

Over half of all fatal boating accidents in small vessels are due to capsizing and falling overboard*

 

*NSW DoT findings for 2002 - 2012. Why do boats capsize and why do so many people fall overboard?  Because unstable, "tippy" boats are dangerous. Even in calm waters.

Like buoyant "feet" all around you, a Kapten Boat Collar increases your boat's footprint in the water, making your boat feel much bigger. Move around freely and travel through chop without rocking side to side. Other stability products only work when at rest, but your Boat Collar works at all times to keep you balanced, comfortable and safe.

4.8m Stacer

"...It’s like I’ve got a different boat altogether. It feels even bigger... The stability of my boat is now fantastic. In the two years I’ve had it, I can’t fault it, and I always recommend it to other boaties.” - Andrew Taylor

4.2m Stessco Catcher

"[the kids] were moving about the boat like it was an aircraft carrier. I was about to remind them of our earlier brief, but the boat was so steady, I let it go, and they had a ball." - St John J.

4.35m Allycraft Intruder

"Rhonda found it far more stable to climb into... Great stability and supreme confidence in moving around... We increased load to 3 adults and a small dog and felt like nothing changed at all. " - Steve

THE MAN BEHIND THE KAPTEN BOAT COLLARS

Pat recieving his gold "tick" award. 11.07.2019

G'day, I'm Pat Jones.

A boiler-maker by trade, I'd built a lot of boats for others, before I built my own 50ft steel sailing yacht in 1993. We swapped the family home for 8 fantastic years on the yacht, and gave our teenage kids a great adventure. However, the unsafe and unstable choices of either a tippy tinnie or deflatable RIB, for my family, pushed me to analyse boat designs and look at creating an attachable device.

Passionate about boat design and hydrofoil technology, it wasn't until 2009, after my 4.3m tinnie nearly capsized during a return bar crossing, that I was really inspired to invent the Kapten Boat Collar.

To this day, I still live and breathe the Kapten Boat Collar (and now Waverider boat) solution, because we're saving many lives by making small boats safer.
