Boat Stabilisers for Steady Fun & Fishing.

Give your small boat the stability of a catamaran, in all conditions

OUR BOAT STABILISERS MAKE
"NORMAL" DANGEROUS BOATS SAFE

You're here for one of two reasons.

1.

You know small boats can be dangerously unstable, even in calm waters. It's why so many boats capsize and so many people fall overboard, and you're not going to let that happen to you.

2.

You've just had a close-call or have seen your expensive gear sink after you capsized. You never thought it would happen to you, because you're competent on the water. It's not your fault - it's the nature of small boats.

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.

WHEN YOUR STABLE BOAT BEHAVES AS YOU WISH...

Get more out of your time on the water, when your stability is taken care of.

Stable Boarding

You forget about the actions of others in the boat, so you enjoy every moment on the water together. Board your boat any way you want, with your Kapten Boat Collar's buoyant "feet" under you.

Stable, Flooded

The most dangerous threat for small boats is a rouge wave washing on board, filling the hull with water. Instead of this flipping or sinking your boat, your Boat Collars keeps you even more stable as the water inside acts like ballast!

Stable Travel

Your boat stabilisers not only balance your boat at rest, but they work to keep your loved-ones steady, comfortable and safe, underway as well. The reverse chine shape keeps everyone dry, too!

Stable Fishing

When you want to fish on same side, you can just do it, without needing to keep the weight balanced in the boat. Whether you're both on the same side lifting in a big fish, or you're helping your snorkelling buddy climb over the side, your boat's a steady platform.

Stable Insurance

Unlike insurance that only helps after a disaster, your Kapten Boat Collar prevents disasters. The cost of recovering a sunken or capsized boat isn't cheap, nor is replacing keys, phones, fishing gear, or repairing your flooded outboard. Rest easy... your boat won't sink.

Go Where You Want

Given all these points, you now want to go further offshore and fish new spots, having left your fear behind. Weather conditions aren't as problematic as before, and you often find yourself the only one at the boat ramp, but come home safe with a good catch.

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

HOW KAPTEN BOAT COLLARS WORK

EVERY FEATURE AFFECTS ANOTHER FEATURE'S EFFECTIVENESS
SHAPE

Cut on a 10-degree down-angle to create a wide reverse chine that uses hydro-dynamic principles to force spray down, for maximum stability at-speed.

SIZE

Kapten Boat Collars come in 3 sizes, offering a variety of buoyancy amounts, but all offer a huge increase in stability and handling performance..

MATERIAL

The foam material is highly durable for everyday marine use, and yet flexible enough to bend and twist around the hull for fixing. Aluminum plates are strong and won't corrode in salt.

POSITION

Installed low on the side to create a reverse chine, to increase the boat's footprint in the water, for maximum stability at rest or underway.

YOUR STABILISERS ARE MADE FROM VERY SPECIAL FOAM

Open cell vs closed cell (air-tight) foam for flotation.
THE STORY OF KAPTEN BOAT COLLAR STABILISERS

Pat Jones invented the Collars in 2009, after crossing a bar one night in a small boat that nearly capsized. Pat realised that he could combine his boat building knowledge & experience along with his passion for hydrodynamics, and create something unique, that adds flotation & drastically enhances a boat's performance.

So, Kapten Boat Collars has been stabilising small boats since 2010!
