THE ALL NEW 2020 12'6" SATURN SOLOQUEST (TRITON SERIES) WHITEWATER RAFT IS COMPLETE AND IN STOCK!

Saturn 12'6" Whitewater Raft with NRS Custom Frame Package

This has been our most popular raft since 2016 and our new 2020 version is made even better with the new Triton series upgrades ($600 value) including heat welded seams, reinforced carrying handles, multi-point detachable floor (see manufacturing photo below), 1.2mm 5-layer material dropstitch Outfitter floor (rated over 10 psi), beefed up 16" diameter tubes, added D-rings for custom framing, added 2 interior pressure relief valves, and moved the Leafield C7 valves to the exterior tubes for improved ability to utilize with a full frame setup. 

The reviews from our fishing guides, customers, and outfitters for this product have been greater than any product we've prototyped before. It's an incredibly customized fishing machine and the new self-bailing floor makes it capable of running Class IV whitewater. There simply isn't anything like it and the custom features come at an incredible introductory value through the summer of 2019. We had three production orders in 2018 and they each sold out before we were even able to produce the retail product page, it's that POPULAR. We have never created a product that has generated so much buzz in the rafting/fishing community and we can't wait to see what the new 2020 model brings. There simply isn't a better combination fishing/whitewater machine on the market, regardless of price.

If you are looking for the smallest whitewater raft that with a self-bailing floor and capability to comfortably hold 3 adults, you've found the perfect product. The overall weight is under 85 lbs and the raft rolls up easily into a compact 40"x24"x12" (or 24"x24"x24") space. The 12'6" length, 56" width, 6" thick inflatable dropstitch Outfitter floor, 16" tube diameters, 4 exterior tube chambers, Leafield C7 valves, and 1.5mm extra thick bottom floor covering (wraps 1/2 way up the side tubes for additional protection) are just a few of the customized features allowing this raft to do many things others cannot.

12'6" Saturn Soloquest Whitewater Raft - Alaska Fishing Guide

The 12'6" Saturn Soloquest (Triton Series) Raft was specifically designed for boaters who venture out to battle the toughest river conditions with the courage to take on new river sections, spring/fall water levels, and rocky shallow conditions. The long waterlines, extremely rigid self bailing drop-stitch air floor, large tube diameters and increased width provide added stability and comfort in tight conditions. 

The 12'6" Saturn Soloquest (Triton Series) Raft includes a floor which provides 70% more protection for the entire bottom surface of the raft. The revised floor design provides over 2.4mm of protection where you need it. The 5-layer PVC floor provides a significantly stronger surface when slamming around in the rocky conditions. You can target those bows, cuts, browns and smallies without having to worry about avoiding all rock and debris.

The 12'6" Saturn Soloquest (Triton Series) Raft now comes standard with 2 removable thwarts, exterior D-rings, 4 carrying handles, chaffing protection on the top sides and rear of the exterior tubes, 1 repair kit, carrying bag and our standard 3 year warranty.2020 12'6" Saturn Triton Series Dropstitch Floor

CUSTOM ROWING FRAME OPTIONS (DISCOUNTED THROUGH SATURN RAFTS)

This is a unique product that can cover all sorts of uses and many of our customers are looking for a very narrow raft option that can handle tightly constrained rivers as seen in the picture above on a successful moose hunt in Alaska (the pictures shows our standard 12' Saturn Raft/Kayak which is a similar product but without all of the upgrades shown above). Many of our customers have begun using it with a rowing frame and we have provided several custom NRS rowing frames to suite their needs. The most popular frame we have customized is a modified two (or 3) seat fishing frame which is shown in the pictures below on the 2018 12'6" Saturn Whitewater Raft. It's a truly awesome setup and with a package price just over $2,400 it's an incredible value.

A video of this frame setup was also submitted on YouTube and can be seen here. 

Components of the custom NRS rowing frame package in the video include:

  • (2) 88" Side Rails with LoPro's
  • (5) 39 3/8" Customized Cross Bars with LoPro's
    • You can remove 2 of these Cross Bars if you don't desire the drybox/cooler slot
  • (2) NRS Universal Seat Mounts (Front and Center Rowing Seats Shown)
  • (1) High-back Padded Swivel Seat (Front)
  • (1) Low-back Padded Drainhole Seat (Center)
  • (1) NRS Frame Stern Mount with Highback Drainhole Seat (Small Size - 32")
  • (1) Pair of NRS Frame 10" Oar Mounts
  • Optional Gear:

    • (1) Pair of NRS Mini Aluminum Oarlocks

I bought this in the spring of 2018. I put a NRS frame in it immediately. I have made several runs on rivers in western N.C. and East Tennessee. This raft is the bomb. I have zero complaints. I put it next to a Flycraft and there was no question which was a better deal. I had a better raft for about $2k less. More stable and comfortable and versatile. I have pushed the limits a couple of times and can’t get it to flip. While loaded it is a bit heavy but two guys can get it to the water. Everyone that has been on this has been super impressed. Easy to fish from while standing. I do recommend a lean bar for the front as that has kept us from falling several times. Looking forward to many more trips in this.
Loving the Rafts! Check out my latest video of a two trip through the salt River Canyon wilderness. We floated 15 miles of river, it was an epic adventure with plenty of wildlife. My only complaint was the cheap seats I bought at Walmart haha. Im going to have to get the nrs seats before my next trip.
This is my newest video highlighting the solo quest raft and my new nrs frame. The boat handles really well and I am super happy with the setup so far. I tied some rod holders to the frame with paracord, it holds five rods and only cost me about 20 dollars. Feel free to use the video if you want. More fishing video to come in a few weeks. I have pictures of this day as well, let me know if you want a few.
After receiving the raft and all the parts from NRS, I finally had time to test fit and put everything together.

I have included several pictures for you to look at (blue raft on trailer in pictures). Once I had the frame on the raft, I was able to make several adjustments in terms of space and legroom. The rear anchor system looks great and I am using a 15 lb anchor.

With the total weight of the raft and the NRS system, turns out my wife and I decided to get a utility trailer for transport to and from the water. The trailer does make things much easier.

I'll be taking it up to the Sierra's in July to test it out.
Here is a link to our fishing trip on the verde river in az. I did not get a frame on the raft yet but It was an amazing boat. Idk if this video could be used for advertisement but I just thought i would share it with you. I'm very pleased with both of my boats. I'll send you pictures of this trip later this week, I have to go through my camera first. I have a few other trips on other arizona rivers planned in the next year, so more more videos and pictures to come in the future.
