Saturn Inflatable Kayak & Boat Crossover - KaBoat

Our SATURN Kaboats 14' Saturn KaBoat (Light Red) - Side Vieware taking the nation by storm and our brand new 2018 model has even more upgrades! This patent pending combination of a dinghy and kayak has found its niche in the market and is a perfect fit for someone looking for the most adaptable and portable inflatable boat on the market. There is no greater testamant to the opportunities this 14' Saturn KaBoat provides than the dozens of videos shared by customers all around the globe. 

This versatile kayak/boat crossover can be used like our SATURN inflatable kayak by rowing/paddling or can be turned into a speedboat by attaching a small gas or electric engine to the marine grade wood transom at the stern. Aluminum seats and an incredibly stable design make it a great fishing vessel. The dropstitch floor is the most rigid inflatable floor on the market and makes standing up to cast simple. The compact size makes it the perfect choice for a dinghy for a yacht or sailboat.

Upgraded 14' Saturn KaBoat has the following changes:

  • Transom has triangular splash guards to minimize back splash and protect the transom holders from heat and exposure to UV rays.
  • Plastic handles were replaced with sun resistant and durable soft handles for a longer life span.

  • The valves were moved to the inside of the tubes and under the seat to protect them from sun and the elements. Their position also makes inflation from the inside of the boat easier when on the water.

  • New models have different bench attachments to make them shorter and lighter. They were also moved slightly lower for easier rowing.

  • Grommet PVC splash guards with safety grab lines run all along the KaBoat's tubes from the front to the rear. Having grommets on PVC lines allows the attachment of additional accessories, kayak seats and custom made frames and arches for fishing rod holders, night lights, etc.

The SATURN KaBoat is capable of transporting heavier cargo and offers a more stable design than that of a traditional kayak. The narrow profile allows for much less drag and allows it to outperform most traditional dinghy’s with similar engine sizes.

The 14' Saturn Kaboat can take up to a 10 HP gas outboard engine if you really want to fly (over 20 mph with 2 people) and if you're looking for maximum portability just purchase an electric motor! If the battery loses charge or the gas is low, you can use the rowing oars to paddle to your destination. A small outboard works great and you don't need anything larger than a 6 HP. With a 5 HP engine, this boat will fly at up to 15-20 mph with 1-2 people. With an electric motor you'll be able to travel at speeds of around 5-7 mph. An electric motor at minimum speed will run for up to 6 hours.

I recently purchased a 14 foot Kaboat. I chose this model feeling it would best meet my needs.

I kitesurf, fish, windsurf, and kayak. I have a small trailer that holds all my gear - putting a hardshell kayak or small boat on the racks (on the trailer or on the car) can be done, but has drawbacks. The boat is exposed to theft and weather, gas mileage suffers, and you can't really store it loaded and ready to go at all times.

The Kaboat has worked great. It weighs about the same as my 14 foot hard shell plastic kayak (58 pounds) - so no difference in the weight. It fits inside the trailer (no need for racks on the car and the loss in mileage, danger of theft, etc.). When I do blow it up - if I want to leave it blown up (say, while I am camping) I can put it on top of the trailer and fasten it with straps.

I paddle the Kaboat - can go about 3 MPH where I can do 4.5 MPH with my hardshell kayak. But - it is so much more versatile. I have a sailing rig that fits on the Kaboat - with a moderate breeze I can travel at 5 to 6 MPH in comfort and no strain. I have a 1.5HP air cooled outboard (weighs 12 pounds) that can take it 5MPH at half throttle - and almost pop it on to a plane at full throttle. All the speeds are verified with a GPS. I recently got a used 3.5HP and that puts it on plane with little effort. Bottom line - the hardshell kayak I can just paddle. With the Kaboat I paddle, sail, motor - whatever the situation calls for. And it all stores easily in my trailer. I leave the trailer loaded and ready to go for the weekend.

I mentioned that my son and I kiteboard as well. The Kaboat is our RV to kiting spots. We can load 4 kiteboards, 4 kites, and our gear. Motor to any location, even setup in the water (the Kaboat is stable enough to pump up the kite while standing in the boat). Kite and return to our Kaboat to rest, get water - using it as base. This works out great in a place like the Florida Keys where you really need a boat to catch all the wind directions. The Kaboat has shown its veratility and is number one for utility.
I just wanted to share my great experiences and photos by purchasing one of your KaBoats (SK430). The SK430 was everything I could have imagined in a quality boat, and more. I've taken it to 5 different lakes so far, and the performance of the boat has surprised me every time. Going slightly beyond the limits of the SK430, we even sat 4 adults comfortably on the boat in a lake for an hour, without leaving a scratch on the kaboat. After receiving this boat and taking it out, it has turned into a fully fledged hobby! Here are some photos of my experiences thus far.
I bought the SK430. I also bought a small trolling motor. I've been out three times in the three weeks. I absolutely love this boat. It's small enough to handle for two people and large enough to move around in. We've fished, swam and just trolled around the lake. The boat is sturdy and durable. It inflates in minutes. We have a Dodge Caliber hatchback and it fits perfectly in the back. If you're looking for a way to get on the water for not a lot of money, this is the way to go. Thank you Boatstogo.
