13' Saturn Raft (Green)2016 was an incredible year for all of us at Saturn and more than 3,000 new Saturn Rafts, Boats, Kayaks, SUPs, and KaBoats made their maiden voyages. It also marked the 15 year anniversary of producing our commercial grade whitewater rafts. The test of any brand is standing the test of time and we are truly greatful for an incredible team that continues to advance, improve, and innovate. Our 13' Saturn Whitewater raft is a perfect example and those continued innovations have made this raft "the best value you can find in a commercial/outfitter quality raft"! Take a look at the dozens of pictures and videos of our customers putting this raft to the test in all conditions, all over the globe.

If you are looking for a smaller whitewater raft to sneak through those tight rivers and streams and still provide comfortable capacity for 5 adults and gear, the 13' Saturn Whitewater Raft is the perfect solution. The technical designed has made it our most popular fishing model over the past decade. The 13' length and 6'5" width is enough to provide one heck of a ride in big whitewater but can also sneak through the tight constraints of our smaller river canyons.

The 13' Saturn Whitewater Inflatable Raft was specifically designed for boaters who venture out to battle the toughest river conditions with the courage to take on the boniest water with the sharpest rocks. The long waterlines, extremely rigid self bailing drop-stitch air floor, large tube diameters and broad beams make this raft one of the most stable on the market today.

The 13' Saturn White Water Raft includes a floor which provides 70% more protection for the entire bottom surface of the raft. The revised floor design provides over 2.4mm of protection where you need it. The 5-layer PVC floor provides a significantly stronger surface when slamming around in the rocky conditions you'll likely find in low water spring and fall conditions. You can target those bows, cuts, browns and smallies without having to worry about avoiding all rocks and debris.

The 13' Saturn Whitewater Raft comes standard with 2 removable thwarts, 12 exterior D-rings including 4 new angled D-rings for better frame strapping, rubberized handles for easy carrying, chaffing protection on the top sides of the exterior tubes, 1 repair kit, carrying bag and our standard 2 year warranty.

13' Saturn Raft with Custom NRS Fishing Frame Package

Package the 13' Saturn Whitewater Raft with one of our discounted NRS Bighorn I Frames and you’ll have a great setup for overnight trips or comfortable day trips. If you're more into fishing the NRS Fishing Frame package will put you on the water with a customized setup even the guides will be impressed by. The 13' Saturn Raft and 3 Seat NRS Fishing Frame is the preferred package of our fishing guides and we have dozens on the water. All frames and gear package will be discounted 10% when added to any of our Saturn Rafts (excluding already discounted full frame packages).

I cant say enough about this raft, we live on the CO river and use it every weekend.. I have people stop me ad ask about it... You cant beat the price with excellent quality .
Hi to Cody and the team at Saturn - Beginning of last year I sold my old Incept raft to up grade to a smaller raft that was to be more suitable for the rafting that I do in New Zealand. Then came the issue of what manufacturer to buy from from. I have over the years used Incept rafts but I could not justify the cost of a new Incept plus a new row frame. By luck as I was walking my dog I came across a chap who was loading his trailer with rafting gear so we began to chat about rafting and my dilemma purchasing a new raft. He recommended Saturn saying they are a well built unit, extremely good value and as good a handle raft as the Incept. With this advice and a load of information on rafting, we purchased a Saturn 13 foot raft with a row frame.

We now have had our raft for 5 months and have done 2 small trips on the lower Wiamakariri River just to get the feel of the raft. I have done 3 trips down the Wiamakariri Gorge as a day trip and a two day trip on the Wiamakariri from Mt. White bridge to Gorge bridge and fellas all I can say is WOW what a great little raft we have. It handles extremely well, is very easy to maneuver getting the raft to go were it needs to go, tracks very well and what great value for money.

As far as I am concerned I am now sold on your rafts and will be strongly recommending Saturn to any one who wants to purchase a raft. Next year I plan to buy another one maybe the 15 foot raft and I am working on my kayak club to purchase a couple for club use. Lastly I found you guys were great to deal with also. Thank you from one happy customer.
"I have had my Saturn for three seasons and I LOVE it! Otherwise I would still be saving up for one of the other ones. If you get on the river you will see a ton of Saturns out there. If I have to go and buy a new one after 10 years I am completely fine with that - it costs 1400 freaking dollars!!! I have taken my 14 ft raft thru class four rapids and under - I have wrapped it on rocks, dragged it on rocks, I throw it on the roof rack every time I go rafting so I don't have to fully deflate and inflate, it has been dragged and pulled across gravel at the storage unit - It is seriously tuff! Thanks for the incredible value.
Just emailed a photo of the rafts my brother and friends bought back in 2005. I think they bought 5 all together. The frame is 1.5 conduit bent and welded, covered with foam pipe insulation and duct tape. Something only a hillbilly's might do. The background is the New River near Narrows, VA. The rafts have been great all these years and that speaks to the quality, thank you guys.
Hey Cody, love the new raft. We’ve used it several times all with great results. Oh, by the way you may get some free press. We did a video with Leland Outfitters (who were impressed) and there is a great shot of us fishing on the Saturn. Will send it to you if it makes the final cut
San Juan Trip Report - After parking at Valle's, the three of us (1 raft, 2 IKs) put in on Friday around mid-day after a young BLM employee checked all our gear. He was much more polite than the older BLM employee we've had the past two years. Anyway, this was my FIRST time with a raft, I usually take an overloaded IK, so things were very much trial and error-based with respect to rigging placement, seat placement, oar tower placement, etc. Fellow buzzard "Fuzzy" was also at the put in and I told him it was my first time with a raft. Along with the added help of Nancy, one of Fuzzy's crew, I put in with the best set-up I could imagine.

Well, the first rapid shook me up a bit and I went into the meat of it sideways. Got a lot of water in the boat but it bailed quickly enough. I pulled off, got rid of the captains chair, sat on my dry box, and things were much better after that. (People here warned me about the captains chair, I'll admit)

In March I bought a new Saturn 13 footer. This was its maiden voyage. It did everything I asked it to do and more. I was happy with the floor, the D-rings, the design... everything was great. I even slept in the Saturn at the put in the night before... very comfy.

I screwed up my entry to Government Rapid and ended up hitting the big rock dead on. It spun me around and let me go without much trouble. I learned a lot on the trip, gained a good bit of rafting confidence, but also was humbled by how much I still have to learn. We had 3 different big horn sheep sightings: 1 harem, and 2 solo males. Plenty of geese and also one gopher. No beaver sightings.

Weather was great except for on Day 3/4 when the wind was blowing up-canyon almost constantly. The gusts were incredible... the narration during the of couple videos I took at Gov't Rapid were almost drowned out by the wind gusts. One of my buddies almost flipped his IK in Gov't, but I think he was too drunk to notice.

Flow was between 700 and 900 cfs most of the trip, I believe. Thanks for all the advice getting me ready for my first time rafting. Very enjoyable.
I am now on my 20th year running WV whitewater....I had guided professionally several years prior. Just took my first trip with my new Saturn running the Upper Gauley as well as my kids and friends doing their very first trip on the lower new river. Last year I ran trips on the Gauley, New, Upper Yough, Cumberland and Russel Fork. I am excited for what this year trips may be and very happy with the performance and quality of my raft. I have run mild family trips, fishing trips and full blown class 6 technical and big water with no complaints what so ever.
The 13 ft Saturn raft has run some fairly decent water and is about to run some more soon. This season I managed a first for me – a full 360 degree roll while oar rigged and fully loaded for a week trip on Class 3 water. We were hit by a mini tornado, flipped upside down and then after 20 seconds with the two of us under the boat being pounded from below and above, the raft flipped upright, all due to the violence of the wind.

Haven’t been out for a while due to a large earthquake which wrecked most of our city (Christchurch - New Zealand) which is about the size of Boise.

Hope you have a good summer. We are entering winter now, but the salmon are still running..... Regards - Hugh
I love my Saturn raft! My husband Tom and I have been white water kayakers for a long time and we originally purchased our raft for so we could share our river running enthusiasm with friends and family that weren’t hard boaters. On November 7, 2009 our 14.5’ Saturn raft was beer christened as Bertha and she made her maiden voyage as a paddle craft down the McCreery to Thurmond section of the New River in West Virginia. While we have enjoyed many a trip as intended, since then she has taken on a new personality. Bertha has become primarily an oar rig with me as the captain.

A year ago today, March 27, 2010 my grandson, Patrick and I took Bertha down a class II/III section of the Elk river. This was my very first time on the oars and I wish I had a nickel for every time I hollered, “hang on Pat, I don’t think we are going to make it”, but we did and I was hooked.

All summer I practiced rowing, first on class II/III sections of the upper New River and then graduating on to the class IV/V section of the New River Gorge. I was a woman on a mission. Tom and I were lucky enough to receive and invite to join an August trip down the Main Salmon in Idaho and I volunteered to row Bertha as a gear rig for the trip. Before we joined our
Salmon river running buddies Tom and headed out to Colorado for a couple of weeks. While we were there I got to test all that practice on the New River by running the Brown’s Canyon section of the Arkansas. I have a great respect for rivers and in my kayak there is almost always an apprehension when putting on, especially when it’s a river I’ve never run. Not so with Bertha. I couldn’t wait to get on the water and it’s been like that ever since I took up the oars.

At the put in for the Arkansas Tom and I ran into a raft guide who was taking his family out for the day. Tom agreed to help out the newbee kayaker in his group and the guide agreed to show me the raft lines. That trip was a learning experience. I had a great run but realized I didn’t yet have the skills needed to take off down an unfamiliar river without another rower to show me the way. At the take out I was pumped, ready to head on to Idaho and the next rowing adventure.

I was 56 when I did the Salmon trip last year. I rowed every mile with at least one passenger and part of the gear for a 12 party 7 day trip. Being on the river behind the oars every day for a week has ignited a passion, it’s like pouring gasoline on a fire. I already had a love of being on the river from my kayak days but Bertha, my big blue Saturn raft, has magnified that experience 100 fold. When we pulled into the take out at the end of that trip I felt like superwoman and didn’t hesitate to tell everyone so.

I’m still telling everyone about that trip and have a photo me rowing Bertha as my screensaver. I just can’t wait for the next trip and it’s been like that ever since I took up the oars. So much so that over the winter Tom and I bought 2 sets of Saturn Kat tubes. One set of 14 footers and another set of 13 footers. I think Tom sees me having so much fun that he decided we needed to be more than a one “raft” family.

Tom was lucky enough to win a permit for the Salmon Middle Fork for this coming July. Soon the weather will warm here in West Virginia and the local rivers will be calling. I can’t wait to get back on the water and christen our two new Saturn boats. This year I’ll have options while practicing for the next Salmon river trip, hum, do I feel like rowing the raft or a kat? Do I feel like being in a red boat or a blue one? Hum, do I want to row the 14 footer or a 13 footer? Options, and it’s thanks to Saturn that I have them! Bridget Tincher, Happy Saturn Owner
