15' Saturn Inflatable BoatThe 15 foot inflatable boat SATURN SD470 is a heavy-duty workboat excellent for any water based activity, such as fishing, day trips or scuba diving. It now comes standars with the upgraded sectional aluminum floor ($200 value). The SD470 is a recent addition to the SATURN line of high performance inflatable boats. New, Limited Edition Special Ops black color SD470 are now available. It is a real inflatable military boat that can be used for any mission where durability and practicality is important.

15' SATURN SD470 inflatable boats are made with premium quality materials, and can handle up to a maximum of 8 persons.

SD470 inflatable boats are made of 1100 DTEX 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. The heavy-duty outer layer, protects the boat against UV rays, ozone and abrasion, and inner layers provides perfect strength and adhesion.

Deflated, the SD470 boat will fold to the size of one large and heavy bag with tubes and another large and heavy flat bag with a floor. Once deflated and folded, the SD470 can be stored in the back of your SUV or minivan, large closet of your apartment or in a garage.

Double layers of fabric at the bottom of the tubes and a 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 boat's chambers.

15' SATURN inflatable boats come standard with the sectional heavy-duty aluminum floor. The bow section is made of a marine grade plywood floor covered with a gray resin.

SECTIONAL ALUMINUM FLOOR INSTRUCTIONS

(SAME INSTALLATION AS WOOD FLOOR BUT WITH ALUMINUM SECTIONS)

The advantages of our upgraded aluminum floor is its durability and rigidity. Puncture-proof hard floors offers impressive reliability and practicality. hard floor for boat.Aluminum or Plywood Floors can be custom ordered from factory to get shipped with our future containers. If you don't see floor in stock for your mode, please email us to place custom order. Standard floor that comes with boat can not be substituted for another floor. However, additional or replacement floor can be ordered by contacting us at (208)350-6572.

Assembly Instructions:

  • Please download Plywood or Aluminum Floor assembly manual for more information.
  • Don't be frustrated if installation seems challenging the first time. It will become much easier with each following assembly/disassembly.
  • It is recommended that installation be completed by 2 people in order to make connecting each section easier, at least at the beginning.
  • Aluminum side stringers are designed to cover joint points of floor blocks, they are not suppose to run the whole length of the floor.
  • Keep sharp edges of aluminum floor away from tubes, or cover with duct or painters tape during installation.
  • Make sure tubes are fully inflated to squeeze stringers into floor channels. Boat tubes should not have any wrinkles and should be rigid to the touch.
  • Inflate the keel first, and position it such a way that the air valve is on top and in a middle of the keel. Then deflate the keel while keeping the valve in a middle of the keel. You will need it to make sure keel valve is properly positioned against the opening in the first section of the floor.
  • Place floor inside the boat hull such way that there is equal distances left between edges of the floor plates and edge of the boat bottom. You will need these spaces to install the aluminum stringers.

Plywood floor assembly details are shown below but the aluminum floor detail are the same. Insert stringers into side edges of floorboards. Side edges of floorboard should easily fit into C-channel of stringer.

Connecting Two Floor Segments is Simple and the Aluminium Stringers Lock them in Place

What a nice boat. I really like it
I am extremely satisfied with the quality of the SD470 15' PVC inflatable boat... so much so that I had a forest green Bimini top and full enclosure custom manufactured by Enewhere custom canvas in Brooklyn, NY. You have already posted my photos displayed on the boatstogo website. I use the inflatable with a 20 H.P mercury engine in the Adirondack region for setting up camp deep in the woods off Lewey Lake for hunting deer and bear. The 2,000 pound capacity allows me to take plenty of gear so that I can camp for weeks. The enclosure ensures that both I and my gear will remain dry in the most severe storms and the boats light weight allows me to transport the boat in my minivan and unfold and inflate the boat at any destination within minutes. I originally purchased the dingy wheels from the boatstogo website and one axle bolt was missing from the shipment. Within 3 days of my email to boatstogo I received the bolt. The dingy wheels is a valuable addition to making the boat completely portable. I highly recommend the 15 foot inflatable as it is the most stable inflatable I have ever owned and it comes with a maintenance free aluminum floor.
Hey guys, I got my Saturn SD470 about a year and a half ago and have put close to 200hrs on it. I have to say I love this boat. I mostly snorkel and free dive off Palm Beach with it, but last May I took it to the Bahamas. We stopped to clear customs in the east end and then continued towards Lucaya. It took about six hours to make Atlantic crossing from Boynton inlet to Bahamas on this boat. We were planing on towing it over behind the big boat but the morning we left the ocean was dead calm so I decided that I would use it as a scout boat to see if we could find any boards floating, with fish on them. We did, caught some dolphin and made the 90 or so mile trip to Freeport without a problem. The best part was we made the trip over on about 6 gallons of gas. I have a Yamaha F25 four stroke, and we weren't setting any speed records, but you cannot beat that. The boat will do about 15kt loaded down with 6 people plus a large cooler I use for a seat and all our snorkeling gear. Alone it does about 20kt, not bad. I keep mine covered and had one hole in it from a rogue barnacle at the doc, easy repair though, even at sea with the included patch kit. Love the boat, and would recommend it to anyone on a budget looking for a very sea worthy boat.
