Big Family, Big Boat: My Brand New 14 Feet Saturn Inflatable Boat.
I come from a big family, and I always felt like I was blessed to have a bunch of brothers and sisters. When I met my wife, one of the things I loved most about her was that she also came from a large family, and felt just like I did. We always talked about having a big family of our own, and so we did. Our 4 kids range from age 5 to 14, and nothing makes us happier than a family outing away from all the noises of the city. That’s one of the main reasons we took up boating.
Originally, we bought a used hard hull boat. Just a standard watercraft that we could use on the weekends. But between the original cost, the docking fees, and the constant need to fix problems with the boat, we got the point where we just couldn’t afford it anymore. We were all sad when we returned from what we thought was going to be our last family boat trip in our own vessel. I sold the boat, and promised that we would still rent boats on occasion to continue the tradition. But then a small miracle happened. One of my brothers, also an avid boater, told me about this website BoatsToGo.com, where they sell top of the line inflatable boats. I was skeptical at first, but I did a bunch a research and found out that inflatable boats were not only a viable option for people who couldn’t afford hard hull boats, but they were in many way superior. My wife and I talked it over, and we decided to give it a shot with their 14 foot Saturn SD430 inflatable boat.
The main thing that led us to decide on the Saturn SD430 was its passenger carrying capacity. It seats up to 5 people comfortably, which is perfect for our big family of 6, still leaving us plenty of room for coolers, towels, and even some gear when we want to take a day out fishing. It came with some rowing oars, but we decided to instead install a little 15 HP motor on our inflatable boat instead, which works perfectly. The boat has a great design, with its lightweight nature allowing it to perform at a high level, but its rigidity and size keeping all 6 of us safe and comfortable. Plus, it’s made out of an incredibly strong 1100 denier reinforced PVC fabric, so we have never experienced and tearing or punctures even with a bunch of kids bouncing around in it.
The best part about our new 14’ Saturn inflatable boat from BoatsToGo is its convenience and affordability. The price of the boat was a shockingly low price, and that’s only the beginning of the savings! Don’t forget about the fact that you will have no docking fees with your new inflatable boat, since it can be easily deflated and slipped inside its handy, portable carrying case which can fit easily into a car trunk or closet. That also means that you don’t need a trailer to tow the boat. And the cleaning and maintenance costs are almost nothing!
Since we got our new boat, our weekend family excursions have resumed. Our kids are happy as ever, and we all just love spending time with each other out on the water. So from my whole family, I just want to say thank you to BoatsToGo for giving us back what we were sorely missing.
