Below are reviews from our clients.
Stuart Fowler, Takacat 340LX Owner
As an experienced mariner I’m super impressed with my new Takacat 340LX and Suzuki 6 hp engine.
This boat has unbelievable stability. I’m 89kg and can easily walk around on it, and grab all the ropes easily. The stainless steel transom is quality built and locks the boat perfectly. I am now a very happy Takacat owner!
James from Lenta Marine provided me with a high standard of service. He advised me and patiently answered all my questions. The Takacat was promptly and safely delivered to me with a new Suzuki 6 hp engine.
Thanks for such a great service James.
Roy Martin, Takacat 300LX Owner
I love my Takacat, its been great up the murray we have added a seat for more comfort and I've even got my friends to purchase one.
Stows nicely in our trailer sailers and also great for collecting fire wood.
Heath Ragg, Takacat 260LX Owner
I purchased a Takacat 260LX from James and the team at Lenta Marine as a tender for my B.Oceanis 34 yacht. I have been really impressed with the sales communication and ongoing assistance.
I used the tender extensively over summer, and it's been fantastic but I did run in to a problem. James and the team were fantastic and lived up to the support promise of providing full assistance and after sales help.
I could not be happier, as everyone is usually helpful when selling you something, but exceptional after sales support is hard to find! GOLD!!!
Leeann Evans, Takacat 300LX Owner
Sensational service today when my Husband went to purchase his Takacat 300LX, we had met James at the Adelaide caravan show, from that moment we had our hearts set on getting this great little boat.
We are full time travels, travelling Australia in our Titanium Caravan and wanted a boat that was simple yet safe. This one ticks all the boxes and with the added great service it was a no brainer.
Cannot thank James at Lenta Marine enough … his service and attention to detail was exceptional.
We will be promoting this product & business wherever we travel.
Kaylene Pietch, Multiple Takacat Owner
Called in to pick up rod holders for our Takacat we purchased last year. Thank you James for your service and talking us in to buying a 2 man Kayak.
I’m sure we will enjoy our water activities and riding the waves with our dog.
Pleasure doing business with you, I’m sure we’ll be back, Nick and Kaylene rural Victoria

Conveient to transport due to the two bags, you can put it in the back seat of the car or the back seat, exceptionally stable, safely can carry 4 people, love the safety aspect as easy to board, perfect for snorkelling just slip over the front.
Tows perfect behind our trailer sailer.
Love all the accessories, great range and iptions.
Also easy to row using the air seat.
Absolutely would recommend it, wouldn't have anything else.
Jamie Edwards, Theodore 720 Offshore Owner
A short note of appreciation. After being a commercial fisherman for 25 years and just purchasing a new Theodore 720 Open fishing craft from you in September 2007; it is without question the smoothest and most comfortable performing vessel in rough adverse conditions that I have had the pleasure of riding in.
Due to a perfectly engineered hull coupled with great strength and superb quality finish places, it in a class superior to any I have come to know in all my sea bearing years.
The enormous power delivered from the Volvo 260 D4 Diesel from idle to full rev range allows that beautifully shaped hull to perform at its best. I certainly enjoy putting it through its paces with great enjoyment from excited onlookers. I now look forward to spending as much time as possible at sea with total satisfaction and pleasure.
I'm proud to be the owner of such a craft and all thanks to your time and effort of your superior engineering.
Alan Hassell, Theodore 720 Coastal Owner
Just thought I would let you know how I’m going with my new purchase. My suspicions about the 720 Coastal are proving to be correct in that the ‘Theodore’ is not your normal trailer boat. Having previously owned larger boats (Blackwatch, Riviera etc.) I needed to maintain a ‘big boat feel’ which the 720 Coastal does in spades, particularly when mated to a power/drive package such as the Volvo D4.
Performance and sea keeping in conditions that could be described as your typical west coast continue to exceed my expectations. In particular I am very pleased with the way the hull maintains a planing altitude at slower speeds in a seaway. At speed you can feel the hull lift, allowing you to cut through the chop in comfort. FANTASTIC!
Advice and service from you and your people has been very satisfying. The fact that having arrived in Adelaide the day before delivery, test drove my boat, was made familiar with the various systems, went through engine management with your Volvo rep and next morning hooked the whole package to my car and drove back to Perth without any problems whatsoever is a testament to the thoroughness of your operation.
Jim and Leica, as you can see now I am more than happy with my new boat. If any potential clients in the west wish to view my Theodore or talk to me regarding owning one, please do not hesitate to pass on my number.
Heath & Jules Patten, Theodore 720 Offshore Owners
We would like to say a big thank you to James, Jim and the team at Theodore Marine on the delivery of our new Theodore 720 Offshore. We have spent the past few years looking for the best trailerboat on the market and were extremely happy to have the opportunity to purchase a 720 in late 2020.
With a young family it was important to tick a few boxes as a fishing/ cruising and watersport tow boat as the kids grow up and the Theodore 720 is a fantastic allrounder.
Safety and Performance were also important given the bluewater fishing opportunities opened up by this boat.
After having the boat for several months it has proven to be an extremely efficient and well laid out platform and has certainly generated plenty of interest at the boat ramp. The quality of finish, service levels at handover and aftersales service have all been excellent.
Performance and functionality of the Suzuki and Raymarine Packages is exceptional, with functionality and simplicity the brief for this particular boat. We have had it in a range of weather conditions and travelled across the gulf a couple of times so far, and it feels exceptionally safe in a sea at all points. It is also a weapon on the river and the banking into corners was impressive.
We look forward to many years of adventures in the 720 and can’t wait to get it in the water again!
Heath & Jules.
Darrell Fielke, Theodore 720 Offshore Owner
I am writing you this letter in appreciation of my purchase of a new Theodore 720 Offshore. I don’t know where to start, but I guess the boat show was where it all started happening for me. I have been looking to get into a sea boat for a number of years. So when at the boat show, I saw the beautiful display of Theodore boats, I couldn’t wait to get on board to get them out.
After looking around the vessel for a while and having discussions, I was then really looking forward to going for a test run on this magnificent crafted and finished boat. The test was as expected- I was sold. Never have I blown a budget so easily, with not a care in the world, worth every cent. This was my boat dream complete.
The size of the boat on the trailer seemed to be daunting but I could not believe the ease of towing this beast behind the cruiser, 90 to 100 km’s not a problem, an extended hitch, maybe a winner.
It has amazed me the amount of finger pointing and head turning this boat has generated while travelling, and the audience it has attracted at the boat ramp. It certainly has made me feel very proud.
Having spent limited hours at sea so far, the boats performance and ability has been outstanding.
Another big thing that has impressed me, was while the boat was being built, the personal contact I could have with yourselves and the team- it was not just another boat coming off the production line. It was truly an enjoyment to watch it all come together from head to toe.
As you can see, I’m over the moon with the boat, so my wife Annette and I would like to thank you both, Jim and Leica for your professionalism and friendship, thus far, especially the week at Port Vincent, where you invited us with you, to help break into the boat, and show us the ropes. This meant a lot to us, because of having no sea boat experience. THANK YOU
It’s great to be a part of Theodore boat owners.
Jim, don’t be afraid to use me as a reference, and give my details, as I would be honoured to help someone else’s boat dream.
