We specialize in the production of bait-boats and its accessories. In the course of recent years, we have developed the most extensive complete range of high-end area for our demanding customers. Our boats are basically "tools" for professional carp anglers who need a bait boat, which is regularly used under the toughest conditions. Our expert team consists of 15 employees, so we can offer a service that is unparalleled. You are also welcome to make an appointment to come visit and convince yourself of our products with a test ride on the lake.
As of the start of July, our autopilot developer Fabian supports us full-time!
As an external developer, Fabian has helped us to develop the autopilot and the mapping hardware over the last years. Since more than half of our boats are now being ordered with the Carplounge autopilot, it was time to get him on board as our 20. employee and head of development.
During the last couple of weeks, we already had 6 app updates with many new functions.
Some interesting app updates for our current V3 autopilot are currently being worked on and will surely turn some heads :)
Our full-time development team consists of one hardware developer, one software developer and one 3D designer. That way we are able to implement all of our customers’ wishes and our own ideas quickly without having to rely on external collaborators.
Their own development department– that is something only Carplounge has!
Another advantage of our boats is located in the modular building. Subsequently extra features such as depth sounders / sonar / GPS can also be retrofitted at any time Our boats are built exclusively to order according to the individual wishes of customers. If you have any special requirements, eg. other LED colors, positions, etc., we will incorporate them free of charge during production.
Especially in fast flowing waters, such as the Rhine, there is nothing comparable to our RT4 brush-less motors. Our underwater cameras are no longer known only by anglers. Many (research) institutes such as the Federal Ministry for Environment and Agriculture and the Water and Shipping Authority LÃŒbeck, as well as fire departments, THW and the DLRG have our cameras in larger numbers as radio or wired version and have them in regular use . Looking for a powerfully driven boat or functional camera system to meet your needs ? Write to us and surely we can find a custom solution for your specific needs.
Due to the steadily increasing number of orders, we have extended our service for you.
Within the last couple of years our production has nearly doubled every year. This year we celebrated our ten-year anniversary and within those ten years we have built more than 9000 bait boats following individual orders and shipped them worldwide! Currently our technicians produce around 250-280 RT4 per month.
During the last couple of years especially at busy times like during the holiday season, it happened that the handling time for the service was quite long since the service department consisted of only two employees until early this year.
It is very important to us to offer first class service besides first class products. Thus, we extended our service department this year using some of our most experienced technicians and trained model making experts so that it consists of 7(!) full time employees now.
Our service department mainly works on retrofits for customer boats. Ever month they retrofit for example 60-80 RT4 boats with the autopilot system and retrospectively put in bait spirals for 100-120 customer RT4 boats.
Besides that, our customers also use our upgrade service frequently: Our customers have the opportunity to bring their older bait boats up to date with the latest remotes, current engines or echo sounders.
Besides the upgrades, our service employees also make sure to provide fast help concerning questions, malfunctions or defect if they should arise.
Concerning this, please contact us via phone. Our employees are usually able to solve around 90% of problems/defects on the phone with you so that the product doesn’t have to be sent in.
Our new, highly modern service EDP-system has been supporting our employees on their quest for an even more efficient handling of all products sent in for service.
Thanks to this optimization and the additional employees we have already been able to reduce our average handling time from 20-30 days to now 5-10 days.
We will reach our own target of 3-6 handling days within the next couple of weeks because we want to stand out against our competitors here as well!
In general, all our boats are tested extensively on the lake before shipping it to our customers. Following a 80 points inspection plan, we test all functions on our test track on our test lake.You would like to see our products live? We’re happy to show you our in-house production and take you to see a test-drive on the lake.
