18' Heavy-Duty, Extra Large Inflatable KaBoat SK548XL - This our military grade extra long 18' Saturn KaBoat which is our largest KaBoat model specifically designed for maximum portability and passenger capacity while minimizing weight. It was designed to transport even more gear and passengers than other KaBoat models. If a picture is worth 1,000 words then this video showing a relative extreme upriver trip in one of our 15' Saturn XL KaBoats on an extremely narrow stream is priceless and truly shows what our KaBoats 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.The oversized 16" diameter tubes and an extra spacious interior make the SK548XL KaBoat perfect for fishing and cruising, or for weekend expeditions to remote locations.

18' Saturn KaBoat SK548XL - Light Grey

The SK548XL has 4 separate air chambers for extra safety and an expanded extra heavy-duty rub strake protector installed along both sides of the tubes. This helps to maximize durability and rigidity.

Our SK548XL model comes standard with two sets of oarlocks and two sets of rowing oars perfect for flatwater cruising or tandem rowing. This KaBoat is extra long, and therefore some tube flex is normal. It truly is a great boat for whole family.

  • Same heavy-duty 1100 DTEX PVC as in our 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 drop-stitch air deck floor.
  • Durable rub strake protectors along boat tubes.
  • 4 fins on tube bottoms for improved tracking.
  • 4 (four!) separate exterior tube 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: Free hand pump, repair kit, 4 oars and carry bag.

I will/would recommend Canyon Inflatables (Saturn Rafts) to all as I did to the many today while prepping and putting the !8' in it's proper place!...It actually was very easy to do by my self which is a must!....Cheers Bro...Tim
WOW!!!!! Steve, was so very happy with the 18' HD Kaboat...it is made very well and everyone who saw it oooed and aaahhhhed over it.....1 hour had it inflated and sat on my Pilothouse Roof....piece of Cake...this is one cool Inflatable and worth ever penny!!! Thanks Steve!!! Cheers Tim.Wrangell AK
I bought this for carrying lumber to my remote building site in Alaska, Thom's Place Wrangell Island, Alaska...it's light enough to use the main Haulyard to lift it out of the water an place on top of my Pilothouse....can fit 12-14 ft lumber..holds 1,100 lbs..and can easily carry 4x8 sheets of plywood..I use a tarp doubled over to protect the tubes..I will be doing a whole video on YouTube this Spring..and Steve Susten has delivered on time..as quoted every time....got a 11' Catamaran too! Great Inflatables!
While the smaller version 15' Saturn KaBoat (SK470XL Alaska Series) has some nice upgrades I really like the length of this 18' when I'm looking to add all my extra gear. A nice option for 4 passengers and still fits in a small area of my garage when deflated.
