14' Saturn Inflatable Ocean Kayak (OK420X)

Saturn inflatable kayak OK420 with 2 kayak seats installed (optional upgrade). Click to zoom in.We're excited to add the Saturn Inflatable Ocean Kayak to our extensive kayak product line. Our introductory $649 price includes 1 highback foam kayak seat ($50 value). It is a commercial grade inflatable kayak designed specifically for ocean use. The 14' Saturn Ocean Kayak (OFK396X) has some new improvements and the "X" modification designates our upgraded Leafield C7 inflation valves (tops in the industry - $60 value ). We have used our innovative technology to apply a self bailing floor which allows water to escape through the bottom and makes the OK420X kayak ideal for use not only on the ocean but also for flat rivers, bays, and streams. The OK420X features 2 removable directional fins, one in front and one in rear which provides greater directional stability and reduces seesaw action experienced in competitor products. You can use 1 fin, 2 or remove them both. Also the newly designed catamaran-hull feature helps with stability and reduces friction with the water.

This kayak is the most portable ocean ready tandem inflatable kayak on the market. It inflates/deflates in under 5 minutes. It is lightweight and easily stores in the trunk of your car or SUV. The heavy-duty 1100 Dtex PVC is the same material found in our inflatable boats and has proven to be able to handle commercial grade conditions along with rocky/bony water. Our drop stitch customized floor is over 4" thick and is able to be pressurized to over 6 psi, making it among the most rigid on the inflatable kayak market. The thickness provides the bouancy needed to keep the waterline well below the top surface of the floor. The OK420 series kayak also comes with pre-installed heavy-duty D-rings to accept the included 1 kayak seat and cargo (a 2nd seat can be added for $50).

Please note: While this kayak is self-bailing it is not really intended for whitewater kayaking use. It was designed to allow water to penetrate through the floor but the speed at which the water releases from the kayak is much slower than our professional grade whitewater kayaks. If you are looking to use the kayak in river rapids then please consider the 13' Saturn Whitewater Kayak which will yield much better self-bailing results.

Additional Information

Customer FAQ: How is the Ocean Kayak OK420 different from your Expedition RK, Fishing FK kayaks, or Whitewater WK kayaks?

Answer: The biggest difference is the position of the floor, the floor thickness (4") and the intent to use the highback kayak seats instead of inflatable thwarts or aluminum bench seats. The 4" thick floor is still the extremely rigid inflatable floor but since water is allowed to enter and discharge this kayak can see more water during use than our other kayaks without the bailing gaps. The OK420X is also longer than most models which provides greater leg capacity when paddling tandem and advantageous for more gear hauling. The 2 removable fins are really helpful for flatwater use or in the ocean. The inflatable floor is directly exposed to the bottom area you are kayaking so it doesn't have the same protection as the FK396X or WK396X models which have the added second layers. This isn't critical for most customers as the single layer of material can easily handle most lake/ocean use. Consider the other models if you want to bang around on the rocks/coral with limited concern. For true river use in rapids where significant water will need to be removed quickly for performance, the 13' Saturn Whitewater Kayak is recommended.

Got the inflatable ocean kayak from you guys. An inflatable kayak! What a sweet idea! My friends all have to strap their kayaks to the roof of their cars. What a pain. I just grab my little carrying case, toss it in the trunk, and meet them at the beach. So convenient! This thing handles the waves so good too. Much better than my old plastic kayak.
I really like the design of this kayak. It's the only one I've found where the floor is suspended half way up the tubes. This eliminates so much drag, and makes it very responsive and quick on flat water. I don't know why more inflatable kayak manufacturers don't go this route. That is what makes the design so brilliant. Having a rocker on both ends and being self bailing, also makes it behave well in white water, but the rocker isn't so high that being blown about by the wind is a problem. The material is heavy duty and robust and this kayak can carry a lot of gear for overnight campouts on the river. This kayak is amazing, and very light for the amount of gear it can carry. The price is very reasonable, you can't go wrong with this kayak.
I researched the heck out of this kayak and there were no red flags for me. The price was right and I ordered it for use in the Caribbean. The setup on the Saturn Kayak was a breeze and takes just minutes. In the water, the kayak performed well. It tracked straight using the two attachable fins, and moved remarkably easy through the water considering its an inflatable. The floor is very firm and is raised slightly off the water. The seats are comfortable, and slightly raised by using the cushions provided, giving me a better view of the water. Any water that got in the kayak is quickly removed through the openings in the floor. My butt stays completely dry. The kayak is incredibly sturdy and stable. I used it for fishing and I was able to stand and cast with ease. As with any inflatable, it seemed to be affected by stiff winds, but that would be true with almost any boat. The paddles provided are marginal and the Velcro paddle holder on the side of the kayak are not very reassuring. I've used it in the ocean, open bays and protected lagoons. So far... no problems. I would recommend.
My wife and I have been canoers all of our lives, with a little bit of kayaking thrown in the mix. I decided to look for an inflatable canoe/kayak for ease of transportation. I searched the web over to analysis paralysis. My choice came down to 2 brands that I was trying to pick a lessor of 2 evils. Then I found the Saturn Ocean. At 15ft it was large enough for 2, with room for lots of stuff, as I can never seem to travel light. It also can be easily configured for 1, as I occasionally paddle solo. My local float trips can include flat water rivers, lakes, saltwater bays, and the ocean. I do some white water rivers on vacation, but nothing regular. The Saturn Ocean has scupper holes for the ocean waves and my occasional (really occasional) white water. It stays very dry in the flatwater. Paddle drips find their way out of the supper holes. The IK’s central floor is raised and does not touch the water. This gives you a catamaran hull, with very little drag. I think it also makes it track much better. The IK comes equipped for a removable fin at the rear, and one at the front. I have only used it with the rear fin. Tandem or solo it tracks better than either of my canoes. The floor inflates very ridged, allowing you to stand. The catamaran hull is incredibly stable, seated or standing. I am not sure you could even purposely tip it.
The kit you get comes with absolutely everything that you need to get started except life jackets. The duffle bag is huge and tuff. I paid close attention to how the IK was folded from the factory. I refold it in that same configuration after use. I think you could get 3 of the IKs in the duffle bag. Which means lots of other stuff goes in the bag. In my case EVERYTHING can go in the bag. Two seats, 2 cushions, 2 life jackets, a hand pump, a foot pump,(bought extra) and a repair kit, my empty dry bags and more I am probably leaving out. All that still can go in the trunk of my wife’s Honda or the back of my truck. The IK also came with 2 break down kayak paddles. They are my only complaint. At 80 inches (200cm) they are way too short for a kayak of 34 inch girth, heavy, and the paddles are the only part of the kit that was not a quality component. I would have rather saved $40-$50 (or whatever they are worth) and not got them. I ended up buying 240cm paddles of a MUCH better quality. They move the loaded IK with ease.

The two included seats have a nice attached storage bag on the back. They hold lunch, sun screen, a camel back, repair kit etc. The seats attach to the IK D rings at 4 points with adjustable straps, and have a velcro removable bottom cushion. (cushions may have been a limited time promotional bonus, but I highly recommend them)The seats are very comfortable and supportive. The included hand pump is large so it pumps a large volume of air, pumping up the IK quickly. But large becomes a negative when you try to carry onboard. A patch kit is no good if you can’t re-inflate, so I bought a foot pump for a carry on. I also got a valve adapter for my Ryobi One+ battery operated pump. That saves my arms for paddling.

The other thing I missed from hard kayaks was foot support to push against when you really need to dig in. I solved that with a piece of PVC pipe placed inside a pool noodle, some buckle straps, and carabiners. (the review section really needs pics). The foot rests are an awesome addition. I give this IK a 10. I am really enjoying it. I have a few more MacGyver mods in mind, but you can’t go wrong with this IK. This is the IK you have been looking for.
I am sending u pic of my experience. I was on pond by our home in Lafe, Arkansas. I had so much fun.. I'm 70 years old and it was so exciting. I paddled all over the place in my blue Saturn. I was a little apprehensive at first having never been in a kayak before. What a wonderful experience... I got in some good exercising too. Can't wait for us to take it with us next week on our vacation. Thanks for all your help and patience.
Purchased this kayak 10 days ago and after 4 days of paddling on big water, 3' waves, a fast moving river, and a white water ride on Class II&III, this is one heck of a inflatable! She's built very well, finish, fit, and quality at top notch. Even the paddles (2 sets) and the high pressure pump is of very good quality. Spare Halkey valve and patch kit included too.
First off, this kayak paddles much closer to a hard shell than any inflatable I have ever paddled (and thats quite a few) since it rides on the tubes due to the high pressure floor being above the water. With the 2 skegs down, it tracks straight with no wiggle. I used a cheapie WalMart electric pump to get it inflated in 10 minutes and then pumped up the tubes and floor until firm..easy with good quality pump included. Paddled solo or single, it holds a line and is very responsive.

Stable? Kidding me..this would take work to flip it. At 14', there is plenty of room for 2 paddlers (we are 6-2 and 5'8") with room for gear on each end. I had my sights set on the Aire Sawtooth (13') and while it's a great kayak, this OK420 Ocean Pro paddled better in every way: very responsive due to cat style raised hull with only the tubes in the water, lighter at around 40 lbs, and all around more responsive. It paddles as well as my OK Prowler Trident 13' or my former Tarpon 16' Hard to believe, but the raised floor makes this kayak have very little drag.

I purchased their high back seats that have a raised bottom of 3" and it gives me a much improved paddle angle. With my deep blade, 240 Cannon, this thing moves. Best part is when finished, wipe it down, hit the Halkey valves to deflate in 2-3 minutes, roll it up, place it in their high quality (generous size too) bag, and toss it in whatever you drive. Headed to the John Day River and the Umpqua Rivers in Oregon in two weeks and happy as a clam. Buying one for my gf. Purchased this one at the Saturn dealer in Everett, WA. All around great experience.
The OK420 is sold as an ocean kayak, but it is much more versatile than that. Its tubes are made of 1100d PVC and has a 100mm drop stitch floor that blows up rock hard at 8 psi and huge self bailing holes that drain the boat quickly The floor is raised in between the tubes so its not touching the water and features two large removable skegs that combine to really help with tracking in open water and it all folds up into a package that can fit in just about any vehicle
I have had mine now for about 6 months and it has performed admirably in several different scenarios. Paddling the Gulf of Mexico, It tracked almost as well as a hard SOT and provided a solid fishing platform AND it as a fantastic boat to just play in the surf with. With the skegs removed, I clipped in a pair of thigh straps and have run it through up to class III whitewater. I have other WW inflatables, but none with the drop stitch floor and the OK420 gives you the benefits of both the super stability of an inflatable and the ride of a hard boat thanks to the rigid floor.

I also made a strap on bench seat that sits on top of the tubes and allows me to paddle it like a canoe, plus affords enough space to tote enough camping gear for a weekend paddle trip. The OK420 is rated to carry up to 900lbs. Again the raised floor made the boat track very well even loaded down with my gear. After a couple of shakedown runs to get the load right, I am comfortable enough to take it on an extended expedition like the Rio Chama or the San Juan as it should be more than capable of handling up to Class III with a load of gear.

If you are a minimalist camper, you can also just throw a sleeping bag in it and get your 40 winks although you may want to let a bit of air out of the floor to soften it up.

Overall for the price and its versatility the OK 420 is a great buy. it comes with a nice carry bag, a two way manual air pump and two kayak paddles that are probably too short to be useful. (I use a 270 cm from the bench seat or a 250 or 260 sitting in a kayak seat on the floor.) Seats are optional and can be ordered separately or you can purchase them locally as any aftermarket seat will work.

It comes with 8 d-rings set up for seats or for tie downs. I added a couple of extras for my thigh straps and my bench seat. It also has nice bow and stern handles and velcro straps on the outside to allow you to stow an extra paddle out of the way.

If you are interested in any boat with a drop stitch floor, I strongly recommend in investing a good two stage electric pump as it takes an awful lot of pumping to get 8psi into that floor.

This would also be an especially nice boat for someone who is considering an entry level tandem canoe but does not have room to store it, plus its better made than a lot of the low end hard boats you see at the discount stores and is probably less expensive too.

Considering the price, versatility, quality of manufacture and ease of storage, I would give it and 8 out of 10.
