Our 13' Saturn Fishing Kayak is easy to carry by a single person, inflates/deflates in under 5 minutes, stores in the included carrying bag with rough dimensions of 45"x28"x12", and is the most versatile inflatable fishing kayak on the market today. The new "X" version from our standard FK396 includes extra thicker black PVC bottom skin layer (over 70% thicker) which covers the full bottom surface of the kayak and adds a second layer to protect the exterior tube chambers. This upgraded version also includes the upgraded C7 style inflation valves which assures durability along with a maximum pressure rating in all chambers. These upgrades provide piece of mind knowing you have the highest quality / value ratio on the inflatable kayak market. This kayak is an absolute must for any RVer or camper where a fishing craft with maximum portability is critical.
This kayak is made of the same heavy-duty 1100 Dtex PVC (double thickness on the bottom surface area) as our other Saturn inflatable boats and the drop-stitch high-pressure airdeck floor is the most rigid inflatable floor on the inflatable kayak market. The floor is made to support up to 3 adults (even though that would be a tight squeeze). The double layer of PVC fabric on the bottom is applied to the air floor and bottom of the tubes. There is also an extra layer in between the aluminum bench seats. Our rigid high buoyancy tubes and customized floor make the Saturn FK396X kayak so stable, that you can stand up and fish if needed (see the photos of our customers doing just that). FK396X model upgrades include our high-end C7 style valves ($60 value) and a 1.5mm bottom PVC floor covering ($200 value - over 70% thicker).
The 13' Saturn Fishing Kayak comes with 2 removable aluminum benches that can be used for mounting various hardware, such as rod holders, GPS units, video cameras, dive flags, anchor mounts, and even a fish finder. Check our our customer photos and videos showing many of their innovative ideas!
What makes this kayak so unique, is the multitude of ways it can be used. You can sit directly on the aluminum benches to paddle using kayak paddles or you can remove the seats and install our custom high-back kayak seats for full back support.
It is also possible to replace the rear aluminum bench with a longer version and add a vertical plate for an optional electric motor.
The Saturn FK396X fishing inflatable kayak is a breeze to paddle due to its narrow profile, high buoyancy exterior tubes, and rigid drop stitch floor.
Please note that this kayak is not a self-bailer. It was designed for lakes, ponds, flatwater rivers, oceans and bays. If you are looking for a self-bailing kayak, no need to look any further than our 13' Saturn Whitewater Kayak. If you want this specific model and absolutely need it to be a self-bailing unit you can cut out 4-6 self bailing holes in the kayak bottom to let excess water escape. However, that option may allow water to entire above the kayak floor depending on the weight capacity and is really not advised because the repair time if you are unsatisfied is lengthy.
