13' Saturn Raft (Green)2017 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.New 2018 Model 13' Saturn Whitewater Raft - Dark Grey

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.

Just got the 13' Saturn and NRS Fishing Frame Package put together for the upcoming season. 3 years old and still looks brand new, and I've put it through some abuse on low water fishing trips. Great product!
HAD A GREAT TIME ON THE WATER THIS WEEKEND, AN MUCH MORE TO COME. WE ABSOLUTLY LOVE OUR SATURN RAFT, THANK YOU AGAIN STEVE!!
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
