The name Theobroma cacao was first given to the cocoa tree by Carolus Linnaeus –the father of modern-day taxonomic plant classification. Theobroma comes from ancient Greek and translates as ‘Food of the Gods’. Cacao is the Mayan root word retained by the Spanish colonizers of Mesoamerica to describe the tree and its produce.

A treasure from the heart of the tropical rainforest

TAKACAT News - The perfect boat for all applications

Submitted by J. Mikhail on Fri, 01/17/2020 - 20:48
Innovative CAT inflatable boats from New Zealand - All Takacat catamaran inflatable boats impress with their light weight and low volume when folded. The larger Takacat models also have an open and fully demountable transom for greater safety on water. The individual models are designed for different applications. The Takacat Sport, the Takacat LX and the new Takacat LS offer sport and leisure fun for the whole family with maximum stability at rest and when driving, swimming, snorkelling or diving: the joy of movement always goes with Takacat. All three catamarans are easy to row/paddle and glide quickly, evenly and evenly. They are an ideal solution for weekend boating and swimming, fishing, sports trips, camping by the lake or river and especially for transport in motorhomes and cars. Due to the physical property of the catamaran to always run "on the wave", no water penetrates into the inflatable boat via the open transom during normal stopping. Water, which flows into the boat when returning from the water, drains directly over the open transom, the same applies to heavy rain and waves - it is safer to drive with a water-free boat!
