A Bato unfolds from box to boat in less than 5 minutes.
With this easy setup, you won’t lose any time in doing what you came to do, whether it is a family trip with kids or a pet, an adventurous solo expedition or a chill/quiet afternoon of fishing on a lake.
Super flat pack
Because it has a flat pack of 8cm high and it only weighs 7kg, anyone can take an ONAK Bato to just about any place they want. You can fit it in your car or your camper van. You can take it along on foot, or even on public transportation. This way there are no limits to where you can take the boat, from urban exploring to remote natural waters.
Kids & pets
The structure is sturdy and the design is optimized for maximum water fun. Suitable for 1 person plus child, dog or luggage. Quickly get away from the waterfront, escape into nature. As a boat for children, Bato provides endless water fun.
As a kayak it is ideal for an adventure on the river. But it also proves to be handy for the fisherman who does not want to be tied to fixed shore locations, or simply as a practical dinghy for your yacht… There seems to be no excuse not to want the ONAK Bato!
When it comes to manufacturing, every Bato is born from a triple layered flat plate (OnaCore). The next production step, and the heart of the concept, is the integration of the folding line pattern, which defines both the shape of the boat and the size of the package. This process results in living hinges that can be folded endlessly.
