Is your boat
safe or sorry?

A BOAT COLLAR STABILISER PROTECTS YOUR PROPERTY AND YOUR PEOPLE

2019 Good Design Awards gold winner.
Boat Collars suit tinnies, V-nose/flat-nose punts, and most timber, fibreglass & plastic hulls.
4.2m stable tinnie
SUPER STABILITY

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.

SOFTER RIDES

The huge reverse chines of a KBC pressurize spray under your hull. This forces your boat to lift through chop and slows vertical impact.

LEVEL FLOTATION

The safest accessory for any boat is buoyancy that resists capsizing in the event of flooding. Collars work hard to keep you and your gear inside, safe.

RESIST BROACHING

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.

DRY RIDE

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.

FUEL ECONOMY

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.

HOW DANGEROUS ARE UNSTABLE BOATS?

The 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.

A BOAT COLLAR MAKES A WORLD OF DIFFERENCE

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.

4.9m Quintrex Escape

"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." - Bruce Saville

WHERE DID BOAT COLLARS COME FROM?

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 the Kapten Boat Collar invention all came together.

To this day, I still live and breathe the Kapten Boat Collar (and now Waverider boats), because knowing we're saving lives by making small boats safer, is a great encouragement and motivator for me and my family.
