THE NEWEST OUTFITTER VERSION WITH THE UPGRADED 1.2MM PVC DROP STITCH FLOOR ARE NOW AVAILABLE ($250 Value).

THE OUTFITTER 1.2MM PVC DROP STITCH FLOOR TECHNOLOGY AND MATERIAL THICKNESS COMBINES FOR THE MOST RIGID FLOOR ON THE MARKET AT OVER 10 PSI!

The 14'6" Saturn Whitewater Raft 14'6" Saturn Raft with NRS 3 Seat Fishing Framehas become a top seller. Whether you are paddling or rowing it is a perfect size whitewater raft for both day trips and epic week long adventures on rivers around the world. This model was custom designed to meet the needs of our guides, outfitters and customers that wanted a whitewater raft that could be versatile for any type of float. The video sent in from one of our guides in Canada is a perfect summary of what this raft can do, truly incredible Class V whitewater action in our custom military black raft! (see it here) or also on our product Video Tab.

The 6" thick drop-stitch floor is the thickest in the industry and provides greater rigidity and bouyancy than any other raft you will find. Our upgraded cold welded construction technology now has the drop-stitch floor rated up to 10 psi (nearly 3 times more rigid than the industry average whitewater raft). If you are looking for a reasonably priced raft that can handle just about any situation, it simply can't be beat.

The 14'6" Saturn Whitewater Raft is longer and wider than our 14’ model. The increased capacity for storage and passengers makes it a great raft for those who get yearly opportunities for overnight trips with family and friends. The technical dimensions are a perfect size to provide a fun ride in Class II whitewater but stout enough to handle Class IV+ whitewater on the Middle Fork, Yukon, Kenai, Snake, Green, Colorado, New, Gauley, and more.

Our new models come standard with a 70% thicker 1.5 mm thick floor, 3 removable thwarts, exterior valves placed on the top side of the tubes for better protection and ease of inflation, longer chafe strips on the straight section for greater durability, upgraded softer rubberized handles, angled D-rings for easier strapping of our frames and an additional 1.5 mm thick PVC layer covering the underside of both the bow and stern. These upgrades were specifically designed for boaters who venture out to battle the toughest river conditions and the thicker floor gives the user the courage to take on the boniest water with the sharpest rocks, it is truly comparable with even the highest quality whitewater rafts. The long waterlines, extremely rigid self bailing drop-stitch air floor, large tube diameters and broad beams make this inflatable whitewater raft one of the most stable on the market today.

Package the 14'6" Saturn Whitewater Raft with one of our popular NRS Bighorn II Frames or NRS Fishing Frames and you’ll have an absolutely perfect setup for fishing and multi-day floats. See our new video of showing the 14'6" Saturn Raft and our customized NRS Compact Outfitter Frame.

Hey Guys, "Recently I decided to upgrade the front casting platform to the new style sold by NRS which has the "front thigh hook" instead of the thigh bar which wraps around from the site. I opted for the "y bar" instead of the "hook" as i didnt like how narrow the hook was I also had the post lengthend to 34 inches as the standard length seemed a bit short. NRS provided me all the parts to retrofit the parts I already had. The cost was around $130 to do the conversion.

A couple weeks ago I did a 3 day trip out to the Olympic Peninsula chasing steelhead on the Solduc, Calawah, and Bogachiel Rivers. Many of the fisherman and guides we ran into liked the new style as it allowed easier entrance/exit to the front seat from either side of the raft... Not having to worry about the thigh bar being in the way. After fishing up front I can say it also is much more spacious and comfortable to fish from while standing. Additionally the fly fisherman like having a stripping basket up front with this setup which can easily be attached to the front lean post. I attached a few pictures of the new set up. Maybe an option you want to include with the fishing frame package if you hadnt already thought of it." Other than that the raft is still working great and seeing lot's of river days!

Got one in 2017 with upgraded outfitter floor and we've had the time of our lives rafting basic and class IV rapid rivers the last two summers. Appears durable (no problems so far!) and glad we went with Saturn. Only one with for this - the tubes are fairly large diameter (22 inches), wish they were less to give more room in the raft. If I had to purchase again, would still go with Saturn but probably would spring for the 16' raft just to get a bit more gear in more comfortably.
Hey Cody, Just wanted to pass along a few photos (dark grey now shown on the product page). We're loving the raft and talking you guys up to everyone on the river!

Thanks again for enabling our adventures!
I use this raft almost every day taking clients out on the river, ive rowed other rafts and none can compare to the quality of my Saturn raft. I hear every day I take it out how much people are impressed with it. I highly recommend to any and everyone looking for a raft to go with Saturn rafts, the customer service is hands down one of a kind and I could not ask for it to be any better
Raft is still running well after I changed out the valves a couple years ago (upgraded to your now standard Leafield C7 Valves). No issues with leaking and also where the floor attachment leaked that was an easy quick repair compared to the valves. Just used the raft today for the (first time since December) on a little steelhead trip locally (hooked 6 so a good day, but didn't take any photos of raft). Can't believe it's coming up on 7 years this May since I bought!

I have a several good photos and some videos from the last couple years. Went down the owyhee last May, Gates of Lodore in August/September, and quite a few local Washington and Oregon trips.

Here's a link to my YouTube channel pretty much all rafting stuff on there. I've got quite a few uploads, Selway video is kind of long but good rapids in there.

I love my saturn raft couldn't ask for a better boat to help put my clients on fish!

Just did my first trip, New River Prince to Thurmond, This is flatts and shoals for my shakedown run. I was pleased with the boat it lies flat and tracks straight. The bottom is extremely durable...I'll keep you posted. To inflate the boat with the pump supplied is about 800 strokes, I did it. A Harbour Freight inverter 2000 watts, powered from a lawntractor battery, powering a Mastercraft "Big Red" blower inflated the raft in less than 5 minutes with no need to top it off with a hand pump. Currently using a wooded frame with bolt on oarlocks and 20 year old 10' Carlisle oars. Thanks!
Just finished my 7 day 6 night trip on the Middle fork of the Salmon on Saturday. I emailed a few photos from the trip and will be sure to send a few more and some great videos once I am able to sort through the hundreds taken.

Wow what a trip.. definitely want to do that river again. The boat handled good with more weight than I've had in it before in some really rough water and boney conditions. Day 1 & 2 we had several heavy thunderstorms which turned a couple tributaries into chocolate milk thus making spotting rocks just under the surface a pain. A couple of the boats in our party may have been a bit overloaded, so we had to help them off the rocks repeatedly. Still we had no flips, injuries, or lost gear which is a definite plus.

Overall the trip went pretty well, besides the crazy weather the first two days. By the 3rd day the water clarity improved some and so did the weather and fishing. No monster trout caught on the trip but a good quantity of decent sized cutthroat/rainbows on the dry fly and spin rod. We checked out several hotsprings, pictographs, waterfalls, and other points of interest along the float. The campsites and camp food and company on the the trip were great. Very relaxing.

The boat did great throughout the trip whether it was the boney technical stuff, dodging boulders, or bigger drops in the lower section. Looking forward to revisiting again!
Just wanted to let you know we love our Saturn Raft. Great boat and has handled and held up well in what we think is big water. Will purchase another!
Just got back from a 5 day trip on the Yampa/Green River. I sent some pictures a few days ago which were taken with my head cam. I have taken my saturn 14.5" down many class 4 rapids. It handles like a champ. I flipped it for the first time this trip in warm springs rapid, a solid class 4 rapid that is running at record levels this year. The raft handled it great and I lost nothing. Thank you guys - Josh
