Soft Rides

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

Bungs out for stability test while flooded.

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.

Fuel Economy

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

SEE THE BENEFITS IN ACTION

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

"Tuff-tech" Kapten Boat Collars are made from marine-grade, closed-cell, cross-linked Polyethylene foam that is UV stabilised, fire retardant & petro-chemical stabilised. They're manufactured with a harder layer on the inside and one on the outside, for added duribility.

“It got onto the plane as quick, if not quicker, than before but the huge difference was the handling of the boat. The ability to turn sharply was something that could never have been performed before the Boat Collar was installed, now I can turn sharply on the plane and not fear the fact that i would be ejected from the boat."

- Nathan, 4m Snyper.

WHY INVENT THE KAPTEN BOAT COLLARS?

Hi, 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.
