Boat Collars suit tinnies, V-nose/flat-nose punts, and most timber, fibreglass & plastic hulls.
Your every movement is balanced due to #1. low external buoyancy, at water-level, #2. A lot of added beam in the water, increasing your footprint.
The angle of the wide reverse chine acts as surfboard fins on the face of swells. #1. lateral grip, for control. #2. lift, for power & nosediving prevention.
No one arrives soaked, when you have a Kapten Boat Collar turning down your spray. You'll be the driest crew after a day out on choppy waters.
90% of vessels with Boat Collars use less fuel than before, thanks to the generated lift. Enjoy big-boat benefits with small-boat fuel use.
Transform a Dangerous Boat
Your Best Insurance
Over half of all fatal boating accidents in small vessels are due to capsizing and falling overboard*
*NSW Department of Transport findings for 2002 - 2012.
Unstable, tippy boats are dangerous, even in calm waters, which is why so many boats capsize and so many people fall overboard.
A Kapten Boat Collar works by increasing your boat's footprint in the water with buoyant "feet" all around you. This makes your boat feel and act far bigger, giving even non boaties confidence and enjoyment on the water. Move around freely and travel through chop without rocking side to side or frightening small members of the family.
Many of our customers only thought of stabilising their boat after they've had a big scare and/or have lost all their expensive gear. Your Collar is the most active insurance possible.
Other stability products only work when at rest, but your Boat Collar works at all times to keep your loved ones balanced, comfortable and safe.

"...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.”

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.

"110km round trip.... dry windscreen. Beautiful, soft and stable ride. Honda BF60hp, less work & fuel. 40L full day. Best money I've ever spent on a boat mod. Recommend this product to any boatie."

We Put a Small Boat to a Big Test
Designed to Endure
Thirteen years of feedback from Boat Collar customers means they're better than ever.
In 2015, we upgraded to nylon washers for an even longer lasting, superior water-tight seal. Result: dry as toast.
Screws are coated with Tef-Gel, a very sticky barrier cream that never dries out. Or your boat may suit a glued-on Collar.
Our original foam had no hard layers, UV protection or external plates, yet you can still see them at the boat ramp.
Made from foam that is specially produced for us, overseas, to fit our strict criteria for Boat Collars.
-Closed-cell, cross-linked Polyethylene
-Petro-chemical stabilised (petrol won't melt it)
-Hard inner layer, for strong fitting
-Hard outer layer, for durability of use
