The 12-feet inflatable boat SATURN SD365 is very popular as a tender but also a day use boat for ripping around your favorite watering hole. It comes with either the marine grade plywood floor or the high-pressure inflatable air floor. SD365 boats are longer and wider than 11ft SD330 models, and take up to a 30 HP outboard motor.
SD365 SATURN inflatable boats can be used for anything from a dinghy, to a fishing boat, to even a lifeboat or leisure boat. The SD365 boat is a large boat, but is still lightweight, and can be easily carried by one person with a wheel dolly. Great as a fishing boat too! Go boating without stretching your budget!
Saturn inflatable boats are made of 1100 denier Korean PVC fabric with polyester support that has excellent resistance to tearing, tension and breaking. It is a much more heavy-duty PVC fabric than most of our competitors with 1000 denier PVC boats.
With its’ simple setup, the 12' Saturn Dinghy Tender can have you and your family get off the couch and onto the water in minutes. It breaks down into a perfect size to fit in your truck and takes less than 10 minutes to inflate. Without the need for a trailer your family will love the extra space in the garage. It comes standard with a 5 section heavy-duty marine grade plywood floor covered with gray resin that protects against water and makes the floor much more durable. Our custom drop stitch air floor is also an option (pending availability) and can take up to 9 psi of air pressure, which becomes extremely rigid once properly inflated. The air floor is a good option for those looking to inflate and deflate the boat for storage after use.
To deflate the boat, simply open all air valves and start rolling the boat from the transom, or quickly suck all air out with an electric pump. Deflated, the SD365 boat will fold to the size of a large bag. Once deflated and folded, the SD365 can be easily stored in the back of a truck, SUV or even the trunk of a car. The provided carrying bag with deflated and packed boat can be easily carried with an inexpensive foldable hand cart. Inflated boat can be easily transported with the help of our removable dinghy wheels that can be attached to the transom.
Double layers of fabric at the bottom of the tubes and rub-strake protector along the keel provide extra protection from sharp rocks and abrasive sand. The safety valve will prevent excessive air pressure in the boats chambers.
Read what our customers are saying about SD365 SATURN boat:
"The Saturn 12 footer I bought from you is the most fun boat we've ever had over the last 35 years. It turns heads every time we're out on the water with it and folks always stop for a closer look at the boat ramp and ask a lot of questions about it. Another great thing to mention is how easy it is to paddle the boat in either direction! It just glides across the water. I also bought a 9.8 Nissan four stroke for this boat and swear you couldn't burn 3 gallons of gas in it in an entire day. Had to take it out in the ocean, just to try it out and it was more fun then I could ever imagine. Completely safe and super stable. Big boat wakes, in the Intercostals Waterway, are a snap with this boat! Ran it once, with just my 210 lbs in it, and it was scary fast! LOL! With the wife and I in it it runs about 16 - 18 knots at full plane using half throttle! Really and exceptional boat..."

"Hello, I received 12' boat that I ordered from you, and got to use it for the first time the other day. From the first time I inflated it, I have been amazed at the quality and construction of this boat. I expected a moderately decent boat with no frills, but this thing is awesome. I couldn't believe the bomb-proof construction of the tubes...they're rock solid, and the air floor is unbelievably comfortable, yet amazingly rigid. I put a 25hp outboard on it, and it is wickedly fast. It also easily smashes through 3 to 4 foot waves. I will be using it in the Gulf of Mexico in open ocean in a week or so, and I will be able to send you some pictures or video then. Please feel free to use anything I have said on your website, as I wish more people to know of your outstanding quality and service ...I wish nothing in return, except that you keep doing what you are doing. Your help and patience with my constant questions was very much appreciated...By the way, if anyone wants to know, the 12' inflatable with the air floor runs 28 MPH with a 25 hp outboard. That's with 2 people on board."

"I have a 12ft. boat w/a 25hp, that I purchased a few years ago (5/5/05) from your company. And I go crazy in it... I love it! I have jumped off boat wake in the bay behind my house: took it to Costa Rica and had it in the ocean with like 10 ft surf.....jumping them. Beach launched for spear fishing.....everything. But now the boat is still in Costa Rica and it is time for a new one. I have put that one thru hell. And one last thing, I don’t think anyone has put your boats thru the things that I have. I have jumped it so high that I hit bottom and sear the motor mount (clamp) off. And I still haven’t had a problem with it falling apart yet, besides a little delamination in the transom: and when I drive my boat I drive it to go as fast as I can..."

"I purchased my SD 365 3 years ago from you and have been extremely pleased. We have fished in the little boat from the far northern lakes of Northern Saskatchewan to the Sea of Cortez off Baja. I have a 9.9 Yamaha 2 stroke and it moves it along at about 15 - 18 miles per hour. I have a short shaft outboard but I added about a 1 inch strip to the top of the transom as I found the leg of the engine with the hydrofoil on was running too deep in the water at a plane. It helped to get the boat to plane easier. Our little boat has been portaged over Beaver Dams, run rapids in rivers, dragged across beaches in Mexico and only a few scratches. The only leak was in the air floor from a dropped fishing knife, no big deal to fix. I would strongly recommend your product to anyone who is looking for a good all round boat for all conditions. We are extremely please with ours and I know your customers will be also."

New 2011 features further improve inflatable boats durability and practicality:
- Air valves have been moved toward the inside of boat's tubes and away
from direct exposure to the elements. This will allow easier inflation from
inside the boat and will minimize damage caused by sun and rain while the
boat is stored uncovered for prolonged periods of time. Rain water will not
accumulate inside the valves.
- Triangular symmetrical splash guards were installed on the transom
corners to provide the sensitive transom of an uncovered boat with
additional protection and shade from the elements throughout extended
periods in Tropical environments.
