Our New 8'6" Slated Floor Inflatable Boat

Saturn SS260 Slated Floor InflatableThe 8'6" SS260 Saturn Slated floor inflatable boat is one of the lightest and least expensive dinghies available on a market worldwide. It was designed solely at the request of customers looking to make an even more affordable inflatable boat. Removing the drop stitch air floor cuts cost and makes this dinghy or most portable and affordable yet. It is great as a dinghy tender for a small yacht or sailboat, and the value is unmatched.

This inflatable boat is lightweight and does not take up much space when deflated. It can take up to a 5 HP short shaft outboard motor and can carry up to 3 people maximum. We strongly recommend our 55lb Thrust Electric Motor (listed below color option) for this boat, it's the perfect size and is more than enough motor for 95% of our customers looking to leisurely cruise or transport passengers to your larger boat. Because of its bright red color (optional), this boat can also be used as a lifesaving raft in case of an emergency.

All of our inflatable boats are made of 1100 denier Korean PVC fabric with polyester support that has excellent resistance to tearing, tension and breaking. It is a heavy-duty PVC fabric that which rivals even our highest end competitors with 1000 denier PVC boats.

The Saturn SS260 inflatable boat comes a slated floor made of aluminum boards. These are the same heavy-duty aluminum boards that are used for seats in all our Saturn boats. The aluminum slated floor is much more reliable and rigid than regular plywood slated floors available elsewhere. It will not break, it will not rot, it will not crack over time, and it's corrosion-free! The slated floor design makes it easier to assemble and disassemble versus other full rigid floor inflatable boats. You simply unroll it and pump in air with the included hand pump or optional electric inflator.Saturn 8'6" Inflatable Boat - SS260 Slated Floor Model Specs

To deflate the boat, simply open all air valves and start rolling the boat from the transom, or quickly suck all air out with an electric pump. Deflated, the SS260 Saturn boat will fold to the size of a medium bag. Once deflated and folded, this boat can be easily stored in the trunk of your car or in a closet of your apartment.

SS260 SATURN inflatable boat with aluminum slated floor is excellent as a small rowing dinghy. You can easily reach your sailboat or go for a day of fishing on the lake. The SS260 moves nice and easy when rowing, and due to the high stability of inflatable boat, it is possible to stand up for fly fishing or while boarding your yacht. This boat is a must for RV owners or anyone who wants to be on the water quick and on a budget.

Please note that SS260 Saturn slated floor boat does NOT have inflatable keel and does NOT come with high-pressure drop stitch air floor. It only comes with slatted floor using aluminum boards. However, what makes this boat different from other boats is the heavy-duty commercial grade 1.5mm 5-layer PVC floor bottom, which is almost twice of thickness regular 0.9mm PVC.

* Specifications and accessories are subject to change without notice. Max O/B Motor means: maximum power of outboard motor that can be safely used to plane the boat loaded to the maximum capacity at normal water surface conditions. Please exercise common sense and caution when using maximum motor capacity. Do not jump from wave to wave as new 4-stroke motors are much heavier then 2-stroke and provide extra strain on the transom. Under normal circumstances, with half the maximum persons/load capacity, 50% of maximum O/B power rating may be necessary to put the boat on plane.

An excellent inflatable for the price, made of good material and craftsmanship.
Customer service is tops very responsive and a pleasure to deal with.
After I ordered the dinghy, actually one day before delivery, I noticed on Saturn's website they dropped the price by $40 and I called with the info. Without hesitation, to my pleasant surprise, they immediately matched the Saturn's lower price and issued the credit to my card.
I would recommend this people to family and friends or anyone for that matter.
A great choice for fishing! This small boat is excellent for going fishing.
I spend lots of hours on it and I feel quite comfortable.
It is light and agile and rowing does not take much effort even for a single person.
I also take a friend with me sometimes and there is enough space for both of us and for the fishing rods.
The boat is also great for small rowing excursions on yourself.
It is easy to inflate and to store when it is deflated. I keep it in my car and I sometimes just go for a small ride without planning.
Inflating it and carrying it to the water is so convenient, so I do not need another person to help me.

This is the second inflatable boat I have ever bought.
I had a fear that it would be a repeat of our last experience.
We opened the box and low and behold the most beautiful thing was the pump to inflate the boat.
Our last one did not offer that particular amenity. It did not take long to get it inflated and we were able to take it out the same day.
We used the paddles the first day which allowed us to enjoy working together and having family time.
It has become a great memory and we continue to go out at least every few weeks.
This has been a great experience with this company.
My 7 year old daughter love to look out on the lake behind our house. I bought a little SS260 inflatable raft from you, and now I can take her out to the center. It’s not even a big lake, but it’s huge to her. She gets so excited. Thanks for giving me an easy way to bring her out there.
