THE ALL NEW 2017 12' SATURN RAFT/KAYAK RD365X SHOWCASES OVER $300 IN SUBSTANTIAL UPGRADES COMPARED TO OUR PREVIOUS 12' SATURN LIGHT RIVER RAFT (RD365 - WE NO LONGER CARRY THIS PRODUCT) INCLUDING;
The 2017 12' Saturn Raft/Kayak RD365X features our upgraded commercial outfitter floor that we have been producing for our Saturn Whitewater Raft product line since 2016. This upgraded feature is only available on the RD365X model and provides increased protection against punctures along with the most rigid inflatable floor on the market at over 10 PSI!
The 12’ Saturn River Raft/Kayak RD365X is a fantastic fit for fishing on your local lake or river but also serves as one of the most stable whitewater rafting kayaks in the industry at nearly 4' wide. The high rocker curves, 15" tube diameters, and 4" thick high-pressure air deck floor (Outfitter version) provide an exhilarating yet extremely stable ride on Class II+ whitewater like no other river raft or kayak on the market!
The 12’ Saturn River Raft/Kayak makes an excellent whitewater paddleboat for 2-3 people. Weighing less than 50 lbs it can be easily packed or carried into your remote lakes/rivers for a fun weekend with the family. This raft/kayak is a must have for RV’s or weekend campers and provides a completely different option for fun.
The raft/kayak comes standard as a non self-bailing boat but can be easily be converted into a self-bailer by cutting 6-8 round holes the size of a dime in the kayaks bottom along the perimeter. There is sufficient room in the non-air chamber perimeter floor to make that task simply and quick.
Additional Product Components
Don't forget the most critical component to any whitewater rafting trip which is a quality lifejacket. Order our discounted NRS Vista PFD - Type III lifejackets (https://www.saturnrafts.com/nrs-vista-pfd.html) or NRS Vista Youth PFD - Type III lifejackets (https://www.saturnrafts.com/nrs-vista-pfd-youth.html) and you'll have one of the safest lifejackets on the market today, often provided by commercial guides and outfitters.
CUSTOM ROWING FRAME OPTIONS (DISCOUNTED THROUGH SATURN RAFTS)
This is a unique product that can cover all sorts of uses and many of our customers are looking for a very narrow raft option that can handle tightly constrained rivers as seen in the picture about on a successful moose hunt in Alaska. The 12' Saturn Raft/Kayak RD365X was upgraded in 2016 to provide the additional safety features and thicker material to handle these more challenging river situations. Many of our customers have begun using it with a rowing frame and we have provided several custom NRS rowing frames to suite their needs. The most popular frame we have customized is a modified two seat fishing frame and is shown in the picture below. A video of this frame setup was also submitted to us by our customer Ian Sasso and can be seen here.
Components of this custom NRS rowing frame include:
