Saturn Inflatable Boats are made with our stand 1100 Dtex PVC with a high-density polyester fabric. It has excellent resistance to tearing, tension, abrasion and puncture. The heavy-duty outer PVC layer of the Saturn Inflatable Boat helps protect against UV rays, ozone and abrasion while inner layers provide additional strength and support. The double layers of fabric at the bottom of the tubes and rub-strake protector along the inflatable keel provide extra protection from sharp rocks and abrasive sand. The pressure relief valve will prevent excessive pressure in the boats chambers.
All Saturn Inflatable Boats come with a heavy-duty marine grade transom, one-way drain valve plugs, front towing D-rings, aluminum bench seats and front and rear carrying handles. Most Saturn Inflatable Boats are available in two different floor options. The heavy-duty marine grade coated 5-piece floor with aluminum side rails option is lightweight, easy to install and creates an extremely rigid platform to stand and fish from. The 4” thick high-pressure air chamber floor is the same floor from our whitewater raft models and is lighter weight than the wood floor option and a good fit for boaters who need to inflate/deflate their Saturn Inflatable Boat after each use. While not as rigid as the wood floor, the air deck floor can handle pressures of 8-10 psi, still making a solid floor to stand and maneuver from.
Inflatable Boat Testimonials:
It's always summer in the Caribbean. The last photo is just for fun...3 men and a 110 lb Tarpon in a dinghy. Classic.
My name is Steve Owens and I've had a Saturn 11' inflatable raft since November 2007. I love my boat. It's the perfect introductory boat or 1st boat because it’s small and easy to maneuver. The best feature is that it's extremely compact. I don't even have a trailer. I carry it in the back of my mini-van. I just inflate/deflate for every use and roll it up. It takes me about 15 -20 mins to inflate with the pump that comes with the boat. I also have a small 8HP Honda Engine to power my inflatable. That also fits in the back of my van, so this is literally a "boat in a bag".
The quality of the boat is extremely high. In the three years that I've had it, I've never had a problem. It's also very stable in the water. I live in Miami, FL and I use my Saturn Inflatable in the ocean. I've unintentionally rigorously tested my Saturn inflatable in rough seas. We were being slammed by 4-foot high whitecaps from the side. To my surprise, the boat didn't capsize. These waves were so strong that we had to hold on tight in order to avoid being swept out of the boat. The worst thing that happened was that the boat then became like a "hot tub" because it was full of water. It was fun. Any other boat would have sank. But the inflatable has 5 air tube compartments that kept us and the engine afloat. The water eventually drained out thanks to the one-way drain plug. But first we had to get back into the bay where the waters were calm. I've had a lot of fun with my Saturn Inflatable and I'd recommend it to anyone who loves the outdoors. Miami is really a great area to have a boat. I've been all over the Biscayne Bay, intercoastal, and the coastline. I've seen wild dolphins up close and all types of great marine life. If you live near a river or big lake, I'm sure you'll have just as much fun with a boat like mine. Happy boating Capt'n! Enjoy the outdoors!
Sincerely, Steve Owens
I bought my Saturn 11 and put a 9.9 on it last year. It has been a good boat and we have been very happy. My wife love running the back waters of the Mississippi and watching the wildlife. Our friends are always borrowing it for a “dinghy” ride. It has held up well and performs as you described. Here are a couple of shots for your records.
Enjoy and thanks, Paul
I wanted to tell you how pleased we are with your dinghy. We can’t tip it over if we tried, and most users are over 200 pounds. We also have three and five year olds using it and enjoying its comfort and safety. We haven’t taken it on an extensive trip yet; however, we will be going into the North Channel in Canada in the near future. We’ll let you know how it goes, but I know it will work very well for us.
