15' Heavy-Duty, Extra Large Outfitter Series Inflatable KaBoat SK470XL with Outfitter Floor

The new 2017 SK470XL Alaska Outfiter Series KaBoats just arrived and are already sold out. Our next shipment is arriving in March and are being preordered quickly so call us today to order or place a deposit. Our 2017 version includes our upgraded Outfitter dropstitch floor produced with a double layer of PVC providing nearly twice the protection of our standard model floors. Even better, the new floor design has a floor rating of over 10psi providing you an extremely rigid floor and greatly improved bouyancy, stability, and capacity. This boat was developed specifically for those who are looking to haul a heaving load while maximizing every inch or storage space. If a pictures is worth 1,000 words then this video showing a relative extreme upriver trip on an extremely narrow stream is priceless and truly shows what this boat can do. Check out all of the other videos our customers have shared on the video tab and you'll have a great feel for this KaBoat and how it performs with different motor sizes. This special edition KaBoat comes in 3 versions: Military Green, Light Grey, or Special Ops Black.

The SK470XL KaBoat is designed to support more gear and provide more space than other KaBoat models. The extra large, 16" diameter oversized tubes are nearly 25% larger than our standard 15' Saturn KaBoat and an extra wide interior make the SK470XL KaBoat perfect for remote hunting/fishing trips, law enforcement activities or just maximizing passenger capacity while reducing overall length (a must for our Alaska users).

15' Saturn Alaska Series KaBoatThis new SK470XL model has 4 separate air chambers for extra safety, compared to 2 chambers of our regular Saturn 15' KaBoats. Extra heavy-duty rub strake protectors are installed along both sides of the tubes for enhanced durability and rigidity. Also, the Outfitter Series SK470XL has upgraded Leafield C7 Valves ($100 Value) and a thicker 1.5mm PVC floor for maximum durability ($200 Value).

SK470XL KaBoats come with 2 sets of oarlocks and 2 sets of rowing oars for fast tandem rowing. With a 12HP 2-stroke outboard motor, this KaBoat is scary fast at a top speed of nearly 30 mph! The SK470XL's added width and tube diameters improves handling and manages sharp turns with ease.

  • Extra heavy-duty 1.5mm 1100 Denier PVC on the bottom floor surface. Nearly 70% thicker over our standard KaBoat Floors.
  • 2017 Outfitter floor produced with double layers of 1.2mm PVC ($200 value)
  • Front spray skirt with water deflector guard and rope lacing.
  • Marine grade plywood transom with a one way drain plug.

The bottom of this boat is made with 1.5mm PVC. It has two layers, which only adds to its durability. I took a long excursion the other day, and I was comfortable the whole time. The seats are removable, which allows you to give yourself more room if no one is coming along. I use a lightweight motor behind it, as I like to get to where I am going.

Most the time I am just exploring the waters edge, and you would be amazed at the treasures I find. I am very happy with the way this boat is constructed, and it comes with everything I needed. I didn’t have to worry about purchasing extra supplies to use the boat. I typically leave my boat inflated, but it can be deflated with ease and stored away. It has brought me hours of fun and I am really pleased with this purchase.
Just wanted to tell you about how much I am enjoying my SK470XL KaBoat! As soon as I signed for the box, I brought it down the basement and unpacked and inflated it! I immediately began planning places to take it! I deflated it and packed it away till the next weekend. First trip was down to the canal with the kids The boat was sturdy and felt good in the water. I was impressed yet again. The 55lb thrust electric motor pushed it nicely! We had a good time with no issues… Second trip was a solo on a big slow moving river, fishing for pike. I had no problems with the setup or break down of the boat. I received a lot of compliments on the new ride! My third trip was a camping trip on a deep reservoir. Packed with 500lbs of weight, my KaBoat handled perfect with the 6HP outboard.. I reached 12 mph in semi calm conditions.. Once again, the KaBoat proved itself to me as a reliable, fun, and safe new toy! Next trip will be some saltwater back-bay action! Thanks for a great product...
Overall not a bad boat but it is definitely bigger and bulkier than you would think. I question the weight of 85 pounds. The material is heavy duty and you really do feel safe in this boat but again the weight of it inflated and deflated made it difficult to maneuver in and out of the water. We also bought a electric pump to air the boat up. It took us far more than ten minutes to air this up with the hand pump and that was with both of us working in tandem.
use this boat everywhere even in open water. rugged design especially the bottom thick material, wish saturn makes one of the 18 foot version. I use a 3 hp mercury on this boat and it moves well even better with the 9 hp moves scary fast. love this boat! thank you saturn for such a great product for an affordable price, just don't know how you guys do it.
19 MPH with 2 people 9.8 HP Nissan 4 stroke. 6 mph at 1/3 throttle of my 2.5 hp Suzuki 4 stroke. Been pretty impressed with mine thus far. Used it out in snowy PWS last week for 6 days. Was able to get 6 mph at 1/3 throttle of my 2.5 hp Suzuki 4 stroke and 7.2 at WOT. Burn under 1/2 gallon and went approx 23 miles according to the GPS on it...pretty affordable little rig to run for sure! Got the new 6 hp Merc 4 stroke on the Kaboat yesterday and today....WOT is 14 mph with me and Mrs. 1/2 throttle is about 11-12, 1/3 throttle is around 9-10....got to be going 8.5+ to stay on plane it appears. Much happier with this little motor than the 2.5...getting on plane will make up any loss in extra fuel burned by the 2.5 by being on top the water and going faster than doing the 6 mph push through the water at 3/4 throttle in the 2.5. Also like that its still only 55 pounds and I can easy get on step with it. Fun little boats indeed!
This is an excellent boat. Great for human-powered or motorized sea missions where agility is required. I do a lot of fishing and crabbing in the ocean, and the kind of surf that I have to get through literally splinters kayaks. I have never rolled this boat once (unintentionally, that is!), have never fallen out even though I've stood up in it just to test out the stability.
The boat is super light, much lighter than a kayak of this length (I have the 15' version that they're selling here) and glides above the waves. You may think that that isn't the case. I assure you I've rowed similar craft for more than a decade and never had such an easy time doing so. I'm completely converted from kayaking -- the oars make rowing this boat really nice. The one complaint that I have is that they are slightly too close together. It's hard to get a good rowing rhythm going because the oar handles will strike each other on the downstroke; also, they'll hit your knees if you're not going to lengths to stay out of the way. This can be a detriment to fishing/boating excursions where a lot of movement across open water is required.
Other than that, nothing negative to say. The boat has 4 small skegs underneath that improve tracking. The transom is stable - I mounted a Scotty pulley on the back so I can pull my traps more easily. My buddies say it is the best investment I've made in sports equipment in a long time and they're not wrong. Plus, everyone's happy when I bring back a limit of crab every time.
