THE 2017 OUTFITTER VERSION WITH THE UPGRADED 1.2MM PVC DROP STITCH FLOOR ARE NOW AVAILABLE ($250 Value).

THE OUTFITTER 1.2MM PVC DROP STITCH FLOOR TECHNOLOGY AND MATERIAL THICKNESS COMBINES FOR THE MOST RIGID FLOOR ON THE MARKET AT OVER 10 PSI! The 16' Saturn Whitewater Raft was new a few years ago and has already become a favorite of outfitters and commercial guides across the country. The Grand Canyon, Yukon or Middle Fork won’t be a problem for this raft and when set up for rowing it is a perfect size for those types of epic multi-week floats. This model was custom designed to meet the needs of our outfitters and customers looking for maximum stability and storage capacity.

16' Saturn Whitewater Raft (Outfitter Floor and Leafield C7 Valves)The 16' Saturn White Water Raft is longer and wider than our 15’ model. The increased capacity for storage and passengers makes it a great raft for those fortunate enough to get yearly opportunities for weeklong trips with family and friends. This raft is strong enough to stand up to all of the abuse guides and outfitters can dish-out.

Our new model comes standard with a 70% thicker 1.5 mm thick floor (2.4 mm before any air chamber!), 3 removable thwarts, exterior valves placed on the top side of the tubes for better protection and ease of inflation, longer chafe strips on the straight section for greater durability, upgraded softer rubberized handles, angled D-rings for easier strapping of our frames. These upgrades were specifically designed for boaters who venture out to battle the toughest river conditions and the thicker floor gives the user 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.

Package the 16' Saturn Whitewater Raft with one of our NRS Bighorn Frames and you’ll have an absolutely perfect gearboat setup for leisurely drifting away from reality during your 3-week long adventure in the Grand Canyon.

CUSTOMER TESTIMONIALS

"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." -----Colorado Rafter

“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.” ----- Andrew

"Here's a seasoned vet Saturn Raft Review – Just got off the Middle Fork of the Salmon on Tuesday. We took a 15 foot Saturn Outfitter that we purchased from you this spring. The boat did a great job. It’s very stable, tracks wells through the maze of rocks at 2.15 on the MF and most noticeably the tubes stay very cool compared to most non-PVC boats. It can also care a ton of weight with the big tubes. We also took a 12 foot Saturn kayak down with us and it really did well. I will send some killer photo’s of the boats in action." ----- Thanks, Hhan Olsen

“First of all, we are LOVING our Saturn Raft. We just returned to WV from a weeklong trip on the Main Salmon and had a GREAT trip. In addition, we have both paddled and rowed our Saturn Raft on the New River and the Gauley River in WV. We have talked it up, shown it off, and helped sell two others here in WV. Note that Bridget and I are not just "any old" river rats. Bridget is currently president of the West Virginia Wildwater Association (and I was the previous president). We are well known in the WV paddling community and our endorsement says A LOT!” –---- Tom Connelly

“Hey Saturn! How has your summer been? I can tell you for a fact, it hasn’t been as much fun as my summer! We were on Desolation Canyon/Gray for a week, went up to the Snake and played on the Grand Canyon section 2 times. Then we have been camping about every other weekend. It has been a busy summer and I am not ready for it to end. Give me a couple of weeks and I will try to round up pics from everybody. P.S. Oh yea, Love the raft and I have told a few people to check out your page.”-----Todd

“Yesterday got out and fished again on the Wynoochee River with a couple friends and we landed a couple nice steelhead. I attached a pic of the fish with raft in the background. During the float and at the take out I had several drift boat owners/fisherman interested in the raft and asking questions. The last couple outtings this has been the case. Just curious if you have any business cards/pamphlets you would want me to hand out. Many of the guys said they’d be looking at the website soon.” – John Sunich

Hey Saturn, things are going good, a little slow river is frozen so I have been on the Olympic Peninsula for the past 3 weeks, bought another Saturn from a guide and I’m happy with the way I finally got them set up. I put the raft through some stuff the average guy would run from, handled good, had a lot a comments about the floor, feel free to use me as a reference anytime you want, I am completely satisfied and like I said a long time ago the customer service is the most important fact, which in your guys case was the best...-----SOMERS OUTDOORS

Dear Friends, We had purchased a Saturn raft from you 3 years ago. We have now done one 6 day and one 9 day trip. Both trips add up to about 180 miles of river. Our latest trip was Lodore Canyon, one of a few sections of the Green River. We put in right below Flaming Gorge Dam and floated 90 miles downriver through Lodore and took out at Split Mountain, north of Jensen, Utah. This Lodore trip was at low water and most of the rapids we had to navigate around all the boulders. Yea, I hit a few and there was a few times that we didn’t have a choice. We never even came close to pinning the boat against any boulders even at lucifer rock, at the end of Hell’s Half Mile. In addition to these big trips, we have done about 10-15 one day trips on various rivers. To date we have had that boat on a river about 25-30 days. The boat still meets our needs and expectations. So, would I truly recommend the Saturn raft to someone else or a friend? Absolutely! Would I buy another Saturn raft? Yes! Here in a couple more years, my kids will be old enough to oar their own boat and then we could split the gear with the two boats and enjoy more rivers and longer trips. I hope that your boating season has been half as good as mine has. Just want to say thanks to all the great people at Saturn Rafts.
Jeff, How has your summer been? I can tell you for a fact, it has been as much fun as my summer! We were on deso/gray for a week, went up to the snake and played on the grand canyon section 2 times. Then we have been camping about every other weekend. It has been a busy summer and I am not ready for it to end. Give me a couple of weeks and I will try to round up pics from everybody. I still haven’t even got all the pics from the deso trip that was 3 moths ago. Oh yea, Love the raft and I have told a few people to check out your page.
Hey just wanted to let you guys know we LOVE the raft thanks so much! will send pics soon!
Just got back a couple days ago and today was my first day back at work. What a great trip! I am sorry that I didn’t get back to you sooner. It will take a few weeks to get everybody’s pics rounded up but I will email some to you. I was planning on getting pics of the boat we jumped on Westwater, which was the day after the big trip and bigger water. We had to bail on Westwater because of the weather. Major bummer! As far as the boat goes, it met our expectations! It handled great! In our group of boats we had another 16’ Achilis and there was nothing that boat could or could not do compared to the Saturn. The only problem was the powering steering. About the fourth day into the trip we went through Three Fords Rapid. It had about 10 boulders that you had to navigate through. It seemed that I hit every single one. I was a little fatigued and I actually hit 2 boulders. The last one was a sleeper. I hit that one pretty good and I was expecting bubbles to come up from under the boat. That boulder did not have a smooth flat top on it and it had two points on it that could do some damage. The boat held up awesome. In fact I want to talk to you about a frame for it. I actually have my eye on NRS Bighorn II or III. But I am in no rush and would like to see what you are offering. I have oared a 12’ boat before and I did notice a difference between the two boats, but that would be totally expected comparing to a 16’ boat. Most importantly, my wife liked it as well! I want to thank you all for everything. I even took my mom on the trip with us and she is hooked as well. I am going to put for some more 1 week trips next summer and I will keep you all in mind.
