Our 13' Saturn Whitewater raft is a perfect example and those continued innovations have made this raft "the best value you can find in a commercial/outfitter quality raft"! Take a look at the dozens of pictures and videos of our customers putting this raft to the test in all conditions, all over the globe.New 2018 Model 13' Saturn Whitewater Raft - Dark Grey

If you are looking for a smaller whitewater raft to sneak through those tight rivers and streams and still provide comfortable capacity for 5 adults and gear, the 13' Saturn Whitewater Raft is the perfect solution. The technical designed has made it our most popular fishing model over the past decade. The 13' length and 6'5" width is enough to provide one heck of a ride in big whitewater but can also sneak through the tight constraints of our smaller river canyons.

The 13' Saturn Whitewater Inflatable Raft was specifically designed for boaters who venture out to battle the toughest river conditions with 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.

The 13' Saturn White Water 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'll likely find in low water spring and fall conditions. You can target those bows, cuts, browns and smallies without having to worry about avoiding all rocks and debris.

The 13' Saturn Whitewater Raft comes standard with 2 removable thwarts, 12 exterior D-rings including 4 new angled D-rings for better frame strapping, rubberized handles for easy carrying, chaffing protection on the top sides of the exterior tubes, 1 repair kit, carrying bag and our standard 2 year warranty.

I love my Saturn raft! My husband Tom and I have been white water kayakers for a long time and we originally purchased our raft for so we could share our river running enthusiasm with friends and family that weren’t hard boaters. On November 7, 2009 our 14.5’ Saturn raft was beer christened as Bertha and she made her maiden voyage as a paddle craft down the McCreery to Thurmond section of the New River in West Virginia. While we have enjoyed many a trip as intended, since then she has taken on a new personality. Bertha has become primarily an oar rig with me as the captain.

A year ago today, March 27, 2010 my grandson, Patrick and I took Bertha down a class II/III section of the Elk river. This was my very first time on the oars and I wish I had a nickel for every time I hollered, “hang on Pat, I don’t think we are going to make it”, but we did and I was hooked.

All summer I practiced rowing, first on class II/III sections of the upper New River and then graduating on to the class IV/V section of the New River Gorge. I was a woman on a mission. Tom and I were lucky enough to receive and invite to join an August trip down the Main Salmon in Idaho and I volunteered to row Bertha as a gear rig for the trip. Before we joined our
Salmon river running buddies Tom and headed out to Colorado for a couple of weeks. While we were there I got to test all that practice on the New River by running the Brown’s Canyon section of the Arkansas. I have a great respect for rivers and in my kayak there is almost always an apprehension when putting on, especially when it’s a river I’ve never run. Not so with Bertha. I couldn’t wait to get on the water and it’s been like that ever since I took up the oars.

At the put in for the Arkansas Tom and I ran into a raft guide who was taking his family out for the day. Tom agreed to help out the newbee kayaker in his group and the guide agreed to show me the raft lines. That trip was a learning experience. I had a great run but realized I didn’t yet have the skills needed to take off down an unfamiliar river without another rower to show me the way. At the take out I was pumped, ready to head on to Idaho and the next rowing adventure.

I was 56 when I did the Salmon trip last year. I rowed every mile with at least one passenger and part of the gear for a 12 party 7 day trip. Being on the river behind the oars every day for a week has ignited a passion, it’s like pouring gasoline on a fire. I already had a love of being on the river from my kayak days but Bertha, my big blue Saturn raft, has magnified that experience 100 fold. When we pulled into the take out at the end of that trip I felt like superwoman and didn’t hesitate to tell everyone so.

I’m still telling everyone about that trip and have a photo me rowing Bertha as my screensaver. I just can’t wait for the next trip and it’s been like that ever since I took up the oars. So much so that over the winter Tom and I bought 2 sets of Saturn Kat tubes. One set of 14 footers and another set of 13 footers. I think Tom sees me having so much fun that he decided we needed to be more than a one “raft” family.

Tom was lucky enough to win a permit for the Salmon Middle Fork for this coming July. Soon the weather will warm here in West Virginia and the local rivers will be calling. I can’t wait to get back on the water and christen our two new Saturn boats. This year I’ll have options while practicing for the next Salmon river trip, hum, do I feel like rowing the raft or a kat? Do I feel like being in a red boat or a blue one? Hum, do I want to row the 14 footer or a 13 footer? Options, and it’s thanks to Saturn that I have them! Bridget Tincher, Happy Saturn Owner
