Our boats carry the LMG Quality Seal and adhere to our Safety Standards.

Our boats are standard AG, KF or KFX platforms that have been designed and certified to accommodate specific layouts. Our boats have been fitted to various clients use requirements and are now also available through our distribution network.

The fact that these boats are now regarded as "standard" has allowed for substantial cost savings in design fees and other costs related to acquiring a purpose built boat that is fit for your application.

T-Craft Ally-Gator 640 Bow Hunter

Combining the skill of archery and the thrill of fishing is what JRS Safaris had in mind when they requested a Bowfishing vessel from us. The vessel had to be stable with a spacious deck area, have a shooting platform and be able to operate in shallow water if necessary. 

Our Ally-Gator 640 hull was ideal for this application and with the minimal amount of effort, we were able to convert this hull into a Bowhunter simply by confirming our stability and centre of gravity calculations and supplying a removable shooting deck, with leaning railings, above our standard bow. 

Vessel length: 6.4 m
Beam: 2.0 m
Deck covering: Standard non-slip aluminium treadplate
Seating: 1 x Helm seat, 2 x Single seats, 2 x Jump seats
Weather protection: Standard canvas fold down canopy
Propulsion: 1 x 90 hp Yamaha 4 stroke motor

 


T-Craft Ally-Gator 480 LE - Alfie Cox Edition

When South African Motorbiking champion Alfie Cox approached us looking for a way to cross rivers, with his bike in tow, and go "play where no man has played before", our team proposed the AG 480 LE. This vessel not only provided the deck space he required, but at the same time it could accomodate his whole family onboard for a relaxed cruise down the river. 

Alfie was so impressed with the vessel that he decided to brand his own range.  

The great advantage of building our boats using aluminium is that you need not "mould" the product, and customization is a definite possibility for unique opportunity seekers. At T-Craft our boats are rough and rugged, they do not damage easily and are simple to repair. 

Vessel length: 4.8 m
Beam: 2.0 m
Deck covering: Sea Deck
Seating: 1 x Vetus Helm seat, 1 x Scooter seat, 2 x Jump seats
Weather protection: Standard canvas fold down canopy
Propulsion: 1 x 60 hp Honda 4 stroke motor

T-Craft Kingfisher 550 Rapid Runner

Adventure seekers often approach us looking for a vessel they can use and enjoy in fast flowing rivers and that is reliable enough to operate near the crest of waterfalls. These vessels need to be capable of dealing with shallow and rocky river conditions and strong rapids with ease.

The general concern related to operating a boat in shallow rapids is the damage that can be caused to the hull of the vessel from the rocky riverbed.

For this reason, T-Craft developed and designed the KF 550 Rapid Runner with an additional or double "skin" under the hull bottom to protect the vessel from sharp rock damage in shallow rapids. This vessel has 8 mm High Density Polyurethane mechanically affixed to a 25 x 3 mm square tube which is welded to the bottom plates of the vessel for the full length of the wetted surfaces.

Vessel length: 5.5 m
Beam: 2.0 m
¾ Deck covering: Carpeting
Seating: 1 x Helm seat, 1 x Double Scooter seat, 2 x Jump seats
Weather protection: Standard canvas fold down canopy
Propulsion: 1 x 50 hp Mercury DELPRO 4 stroke motor

T-Craft Ally-Gator 550 Excursion

The initial request for this vessel came from an avid fisherman who required a boat which could help him achieve his lifelong dream of fishing in some of the best and most remote rivers and lakes in Sub-Sahara Africa. Due to the remote areas in which he would be traveling, and the lack of mechanical back-up, he required redundancy on the propulsion. An extremely strong trailer to deal with the rugged off-road conditions was also required

T-Craft proposed the AG 550 Excursion for its proven ability in African rivers and lakes.

The AG 550 Excursion design includes a heavy duty off-road trailer, dual outboard installation and enhanced keel and hull plating. 

Vessel length: 5.5 m
Beam: 2.0 m
¾ Deck covering: Carpeting
Seating: 1 x Helm seat, 1 x Double Scooter seat, 2 x Jump seats
Weather protection: Standard canvas fold down canopy
Propulsion: 2 x 60 hp Yamaha 4 stroke motor

Passenger seating is located down the centreline for stability, with ample stowage and wet-bar facilities provided.

Vessel length: 7.5 m

¾ Deck covering: Carpeting
Seating: 1 x Helm seat, 8 x Double Frame seats
