Our 16' Saturn XHD487 Inflatable Boat is our heavy-duty workboat. The limited edition Special Operations model is in stock in midnight black. This size inflatable boat is certainly more cumbersome to inflate/deflate and transfer by a single person but it can still be done by a single person using our customized attachable dinghy wheels (not included by can be purchased separately). The 16' Saturn Inflatable Boat is easily handled with 2 people and the upgraded aluminum sectional floor provides weight reduction and improved durability. This is an excellent size for more arduous boating activities, such as fishing, snorkeling, commercial sightseeing trips, overnight trips or scuba diving. The sectional aluminum floor is the perfect compliment of weight, rigidity, and performance. The bow section is made of a marine grade plywood floor covered with a gray resin and has a custom acces hole to the inflatable keel valve.
The XHD487 inflatable boat is made of our premium 1,100 Dtex heavy-duty PVC fabric with polyester support and is one of the thickest in the industry. The 5-layer thick construction section is excellent against rupture, tearing, tension and abrasion. Double layers of fabric at the bottom of the tubes and a rub-strake protector along the keel provide extra protection from sharp rocks and abrasive sand. The pressure relief safety valve will prevent excessive air pressure which will maximize the rigidity of the tubes without rupture.
This model is now equipped with a set of rowing oars, emergency paddle holders, 4 aluminum bench seats and additional D-ring cargo attachment points.
