Our Story

Welcome to Anchor Marine Outfitters! 

Chris and Diane are based out of Tampa, Florida. Owners of their own sailboat, sv Makai, seeking an innovative, dependable, versatile, and safe tender that can be used in their local Tampa Bay or anchored somewhere in the Bahamas.  As sailors do, we follow other sailors in the Tampa Bay area and all over the world. We stumbled upon a different kind of tender on a sailing YouTube channel.  What attracted us to the Takacat tender was its unique design with excellent performance, stability, and portability.  Looking further into Takacat we discovered a company with friendly, reliable, and honest folks behind this exclusive design of a dinghy.  Takacat really backs their products.  

As fellow water adventurers, we welcome you to our Takacat water journey.   

Let’s take adventurizing on the water to a higher level! 

Fair winds,

Chris & Diane
