Gone Fishing: The Aquacat Story

Remember the days when you’d stand on the shoreline, casting your line, and daydream about reaching that distant spot in the ocean where the big fish hang out?

That’s the dream that sparked the creation of Aquacat, the world’s first commercially successful surf-launched RC bait boat.

The birth of the Aquacat

Creating Aquacat wasn’t a walk in the park. Imagine designing a boat small enough to tuck under your arm but mighty enough to tackle the ocean’s currents. It took a blend of genius, grit, and a whole lot of trial and error. After two intense years of R&D and a lot of skin in the game, the Aquacat Dinglehopper was born. And guess what? It made a splash right away, catching the eye of fishing aficionados in a national magazine back in 2004.

Never Settling, Always Innovating

We didn’t stop there. Fast forward to 2010, and enter the Aquacat Turbo. Thanks to advancements in brushless motor technology, this baby was twice as fast and powerful. But we were just getting started. In 2015, the Aquacat Turbo X hit the scene. Lighter, faster, and smarter, it came packed with high-performance batteries and integrated GPS and fish finder tech.

Making Waves Worldwide

Today, the Aquacat Turbo X is not just a South African sensation; it’s a global phenomenon. So, the next time you’re at the beach, keep an eye out. You just might spot an Aquacat Turbo X zipping through the waves, making someone’s fishing dreams come true.

So here’s to the dreamers, the doers, and every angler in between. Tight lines and happy fishing!
