15' Heavy-Duty, Extra Large Outfitter Series Inflatable KaBoat SK470XL (Alask Series) with Outfitter Floor
The new 2018 SK470XL Alaska Outfiter Series KaBoats just arrived, order now as it's looking like we may be sold out ahead of our final shipment arriving for 2018. Our 2018 version includes our upgraded Outfitter dropstitch floor produced with a double layer of PVC (1.2mm thick material vs. 0.9mm in SK470XL standard version) providing nearly twice the protection of our standard XL model floors ($200 value). Even better, the new floor design has a floor rating of over 12psi providing you an extremely rigid floor and greatly improved bouyancy, stability, and capacity. This boat was developed specifically for those who are looking to haul a heaving load while maximizing every inch or storage space. If a pictures is worth 1,000 words then this video showing a relative extreme upriver trip on an extremely narrow stream is priceless and truly shows what this boat can do. Check out all of the other videos our customers have shared on the video tab and you'll have a great feel for this KaBoat and how it performs with different motor sizes. This special edition KaBoat comes in 3 versions: Military Green, Dark Grey, or Special Ops Black.
The SK470XL KaBoat is designed to support more gear and provide more space than other KaBoat models. The extra large, 16" diameter oversized tubes are nearly 25% larger than our standard 15' Saturn KaBoat and an extra wide interior make the SK470XL KaBoat perfect for remote hunting/fishing trips, law enforcement activities or just maximizing passenger capacity while reducing overall length (a must for our Alaska users).
This new SK470XL model has 4 separate air chambers for extra safety, compared to 2 chambers of our regular Saturn 15' KaBoats. Extra heavy-duty rub strake protectors are installed along both sides of the tubes for enhanced durability and rigidity. Also, the Outfitter Series SK470XL has upgraded Leafield C7 Valves ($100 Value) and a thicker 1.5mm PVC floor for maximum durability ($200 Value).
SK470XL KaBoats come with 2 sets of oarlocks and 2 sets of rowing oars for fast tandem rowing. With a 12HP 2-stroke outboard motor, this KaBoat is scary fast at a top speed of nearly 30 mph! The SK470XL's added width and tube diameters improves handling and manages sharp turns with ease.
