Focus on Experience
The Sportyak 245 is the result of 35 years of experience and development! This mid-sized dinghy combines the best features of those other legendary boats that are the BIC 252 and the Sportyak 213.
With their exceptional light weight and great build quality, their incredible longevity, and above all, their incomparable stability, BIC boats have built a solid reputation in the world of leisure boating.
Light weight, easy to transport, giving you excellent glide when you row, it can also be fitted with either a thermal or electric motor. From carrying men and equipment to an anchored boat, to getting out to the best fishing spots, to being a great toy for the kids… There are almost no limits for this super safe and versatile boat!
Priority to stability and safety: a large proportion of serious accidents in leisure boating happen on small boats serving larger craft. Safety has all too often been overlooked on this type of boat, but safety was the top priority for the 245’s designers. Four factors guided the design team in their work: keeping the weight evenly balanced when in use, being unsinkable, stability and getting back on board in case of falling off. The team tested every conceivable “accident” scenario and the Sportyak 245 is the result of all that work. The relatively low cockpit rim and numerous carry handles make climbing back in after falling/jumping out simple and safe.
When empty, the cockpit float line is below the level of the floor, allowing the cockpit to auto-empty.
One, two or three people can fit comfortably in a 245. The double rowing position allows you to choose your seating configuration. That means you can adjust to any size oarsman for efficient rowing without compromising balance.
The double hull gives added safety to passengers. Even if a very violent impact made a hole on the outside hull, the inner hull would provide sufficient flotation to get back to shore.
The catamaran hull gives the best possible stability. It means you can load up on one side of the boat without fear of capsizing. This shape with flat lateral sections gives also an exceptional glide, with an efficient anti-drift.
The Sportyak 245 is fitted with two wide rollers for easy handling over beaches, banks and jetties. The wheels are integrated into the design of the hull and don’t in any way affect its performance in water. You can load all your equipment in the boat and take it easily down to the water’s edge!
The Sportyak 245 are particularly easy to carry, are light weight which is an essential characteristic for a boat that is most of the time carried by hand and loaded onto roof racks. Several carry-handles have been positioned around the Sportyak 245 to facilitate its beach-launching and handling.
