16' Heavy-Duty, Extra Large Inflatable KaBoat SK487XL

ew 2017 16' XL KaBoat

Upgraded for 2017, the extra large XL KaBoats come in 2 versions: Expedition Gray, Hunter Green, and Special Ops Military black.

SK487XL KaBoats are designed to support more gear and provide more space than other KaBoat models. Extra large, 16" diameter oversized tubes and an extra wide interior make the SK487XL KaBoat perfect for law enforcement, special military operations under cover of darkness, or expedition along an unexplored coast. This model is also great for remote island explorations, fun day on a water with a family, or just simple fishing on a weekend with friends.

This new SK487XL model has 4 separate air chambers for extra safety, compared to 2 standard chambers of regular KaBoats. Extra heavy-duty rub strake protectors are installed along both sides of the tubes for enhanced durability and rigidity.

SK487 KaBoats come with 2 sets of oarlocks and 2 sets of rowing oars for fast tandem rowing. With a 15HP 2-stroke outboard motor, this KaBoat was riding scary fast! The SK487XL handles sharp turns great and holds large waves without a problem.

  • Same heavy-duty 1100 Denier PVC as in SATURN boats & rafts.
  • Front spray skirt with water deflector guard and rope lacing.
  • Marine grade plywood transom with a one way drain plug.
  • Extra thick, high-pressure 140mm inflatable air deck floor.
  • Durable rub strake protectors along boat tubes.
  • 4 fins on bottom of tubes for improved tracking.
  • 4 (four!) separate air chambers for extra safety.
  • 2 sets of rowing oars with 2 sets of oar locks for tandem rowing.
  • 4 lightweight aluminum removable benches.
  • Included: hand pump, repair kit, 4 oars and carry bag.

This boat has so much space inside it that it is simply great. I love going to excursions to remoted places with a group of friends and this boat is exactly what we needed. We plan our trip, take our luggage and row for hours. There is much place inside and everyone feels comfortable.
I feel safe enough on this boat to go to unexplored places. It is made of thick plastic and I do not worry that sharp rocks could penetrate it. It is stable on the water and easy to control.
This kaboat is also excellent for family excursions. It is quite spacious and when everyone gets tired of rowing, you can just turn on an electric motor and go back.
This 16 foot kayak easily fits me and my 5 friends. We like to go on long trips, and this kayak has brought us a lot of fun. It was an inexpensive investment that will last for years. The construction of the kayak is sturdy, as it is made with heavy material that will stand up to ware and tear. It is easy to inflate and deflate when finished. I store it in its carrying bag, and typically let it air dry for a day before putting it away. There is no unpleasant odors, and our feet stay completely dry while using this kayak. It is easy to manuvr, and 6 strong guys can really get this kayak moving down the river. The fun that this kayak provides is endless and priceless. I am glad I made this purchase.
The boat performed perfectly and has been stowed on inflated on top of my truck camper over swimming noodles for 600 miles inflated. A great little ship. Very stable. I use an lp 2.5 motor.
Purchased the 16Ft SK487 in July 2012. Have used it for several multi day camping trips in large mountain lakes and the Columbia River in Washington state. With my 8HP four stroke and two people top speed is 22 MPH per my GPS. I have owned several inflatables, for the money this inflatable represents tremendous value. With the floor removed and deflated I can easily by myself transport between storage in the garage and into the back of my Explorer. With this boat I can carry four people without gear, or two people and camping gear for week long trips. I built my own sun top for about $35.00 using PVC pipe and a 5x7’ tarp. Would buy this again, positively great value for the money, I can afford most any boat I desire, but hate paying monthly storage fees and waiting in long launch lines. I purchased this boat to escape the crowds, for this purpose it is perfect, love it!
Just got back from Fire Lake in Eagle River AK. 8 hp Yamaha will do 18 MPH per my GPS.
Thanks so much for your diligence and your teams efforts in shipping my boat out so quickly sir! Got it today and immediately pumped it up to make sure all is well - so far so good! You were right when you said your rafts are derived from high quality, craftsmen! Seams look strong and overall boat looks great! I am anxious to see how sea-worthy she truly is as well as the tracking and handling on the H20. Will advise w/ photo's as promised.

Cheers and happy selling to the entire Saturn Team!
I have to say I love our new 16' Kaboat, we have had it out a few times and it's perfect, folds up and fits in the back of my Mini Cooper, Easy setup takes 10 minutes with a low volume electric air pump, finishing off with the supplied hand pump. For a family boat to take camping for river or lake excursions here in Oregon it's perfect, mind you I have already poked a hole in the air floor (fishing with kids) but it was a quick and easy repair. I was using a 15hp engine but it was overpowered and went to a 50 LB thrust electric, more than enough power to zip you about a river and lasts all day as the boat is so light to push..
