12' SATURN SD365 is one of our best selling inflatable boats.

Saturn SD365 inflatable boats are longer and wider than our popular 11ft SD330 inflatable boat models, and take up to a 30 HP outboard motor vs 15 HP max for SD330.

SD365 SATURN inflatable boats can be used for anything from a dinghy, to a fishing boat, to even a lifeboat or leisure boat. The SD365 boat is a large boat, but is still lightweight, and can be easily carried by one person with a wheel dolly. Great as a fishing boat too! Go boating without stretching your budget!

Saturn 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 much more heavy-duty PVC fabric than most of our competitors with 1000 denier PVC boats.

Saturn SD365 Inflatable Boat Specifications.

The Saturn SD365 inflatable boat comes standard with a high-pressure drop stitch air deck floor. Our drop stitch floors can take up to 9 psi of air pressure, and become extremely rigid once properly inflated. Not only do air floors make inflatable boats much lighter and more compact when deflated, but they also make it much easier to assemble and disassemble the boat. You simply unroll it and pump in air with the included hand pump. 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. Click to see how to deflate and fold your inflatable boat.

Deflated, the SD365 boat will fold to the size of a large bag. Once deflated and folded, the SD365 can be easily stored in the trunk of your car or in a closet of your apartment. Bag with deflated and packed boat can be easily carried around with inexpensive folding hand cart. Inflated boat can be easily transported with help of our removable dinghy wheels that are attached to the transom.

Double layers of fabric at the bottom of the tubes and rub strake protector along the keel provide extra protection from sharp rocks and abrasive sand. The safety valve will prevent excessive air pressure in the boats chambers.

    accumulate inside the valves.
  • Triangular symmetrical splash guards were installed on the transom corners to provide the sensitive transom of an uncovered boat with additional protection and shade from the elements throughout extended periods in Tropical environments.
  • All SD365 boats now come with splash guards and safety grab ropes all along tubes perimter, including bow area.

Quick Tip! Worried about puncturing the air floor with a fishing hook, dog claws or sharp object? Get a piece of vinyl flooring or rubber mat from your local hardware store. Cut the vinyl to fit inside the boat, over the floor and your air floor will be almost indestructible! When deflating, just roll it up along with the boat for future use.

Note: 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 boat on plane.

I bought the SD365 two years ago and love it!! This boat replaced a Zodiac inflatable I had for over 20 years this is a case where the motor outlasted the boat. The Saturn is easy to inflate and use, The hand pump works well and with the one-way valves pressure does not escape when you remove the air hose. Powered by a 1984 Mercury 25XD we fly at 26.5 mph with 2 adults wicked fun!! We covered the air floor with marine carpet, used 2 sided velcro to attach the boat registration to the side and used stencil and permanent marker for the registration numbers. I found that using an extension handle on the tiller handle helps move body weight further up reducing time to plane. I already had a fin on the motor , We bought the optional wheels and makes easy transport from the garage to the lake. Easy to pack in the minivan with motor on top. We took the boat out to the Wisconsin Dells and boated on the upper and lower dells, lots of compliments from people in the Duck Boats,

I recently purchased a 12 ft. Saturn inflatable boat model SD365. This was an internet purchase, sight unseen. I pondered, shopped, and fretted for a month before taking the plunge. Specifically, I wanted an inflatable dinghy for my 36 ft. Mainship, which had no tender davit or even a really good place for one. The ability to bring the inflatable boat aboard, somehow, was very attractive from an operational standpoint. I've learned through several boat purchases over my lifespan that any boat you own only gets smaller with use. The maximum size that would not exceed the beam of my Mainship was the 12 ft. model SD365. I can single handedly roll this baby (120 lbs. wet) onto the swim platform davits that I installed. Launching the darling from this setup is as easy as untying your shoe. Initially I tried a 3.5 hp 4 cycle (38 lbs.) which was actually OK, except that it only had a 12 oz. self contained fuel tank. Fine, if you want ultimate portability and only want to run from anchor to the shore several times. Not fine, if you want to take your dink down the bayou (Biloxi, MS) to a dockside restaurant and back. Upped it to a 9.8, 4 cycle (89 lbs.) with a regular 3 gal. external fuel tank. Much better, except now I have to use a motor hoist instead of just doing it strong arm style. Always a tradeoff, yes? With the 9.8, and a self-installed planning fin, she pops up quickly and stays on plane at a relatively low speed. I like that. High speed performance with two aboard is adequate. I would have to guess...15 knots? Maybe 18. It's a guess. A rigid bottom would provide higher top speeds, but at a significant price and weight penalty. Hey, it's a dink!! I imagine a 15 hp motor would provide thoroughly satisfying top speed with two aboard. I just couldn't go the extra weight (115 lbs.). As with anything this light, passenger placement can have fairly dramatic effects. After a few experiments, and affirmations to my passenger regarding her dietary success, I found the correct configuration for both planning and cruise. The seaworthiness of the Saturn inflatable boat design has altered my thinking to the point that I'm certain I'll use her for fishing the offshore islands. Towing her behind my Mainship or on the swim platform should be a no-brainer. The BP oil spill will doubtless test her ability to withstand petroleum products. An update will follow once she's been exposed to that environment. I'm probably in for some kind of warranty breach there, I'm sure. Furthermore, I'm convinced that this thing just will not flip. YOU might fly out, so make sure that you wear your engine shut-off lanyard. When fun time is over and she has to get out of the pool, I've learned to open the valves, get off, and then I can haul her onto my back deck by hand. Please consider that I am 55 yrs. young, of slight build, and it is measurably a 12 foot lift from the water to the top of my deck rail. The fact that I can do it repeatedly, without going to the hospital, is a true testament to the portability of the design. I usually sit down for a cocktail shortly afterwards. I like to savor my accomplishments. And don't leave my inflatable boat in water for more than a week...barnacles.\r\n\r\nSO, WHAT DO I THINK OF MY PURCHASE?\r\n\r\nWise choice. I'm certain that there are comparable quality inflatable boats out there, but at this price...NOT! 12' Saturn inflatable boat is a good value and I'm the critical type. Glad I didn't go smaller. The inflatable floor works well and is lighter than the more complicated, and expensive, rigid floor. Maybe the motor mount could be a half inch higher, but what do I know. Being fairly well seasoned I have developed a skeptical eye, and don't give praise automatically. Saturn dinghy is well built. Seams and attachments appear to be top quality. This inflatable boat appears to be well engineered. I'm a commercial pilot and thusly aware of the trade offs that must be made between performance, utility, comfort, and price. The SD365 inflatable raft is excellent quality at an excellent price. Also, this is my first inflatable, so discovering that I can load 5 people plus 400 lbs. of gear is just mind boggling. It's the buoyancy factor. What a safety margin this thing possesses. My previous 14 ft. fiberglass skiff could hold 2 guys plus, maybe, a verbal message. The ability to take a 30 hp motor I find a little scary, but it speaks volumes about the capability engineered into this delightful, inflatable boat shaped, bobbing cork. I consider the bright red color to be an added safety bonus. It is exceptionally visible, even eye grabbing. Not getting run over by anything is highly desirable to me. At dockside, people (kids especially) think it is just plain cute. Strangers have asked if they could go for a ride to see what it was like. My inexperience with inflatables may have caused me to be a little cautious about inflation pressures. Evidently I was going too low because I ran into engine cavitation issues as well as a disconcerting floor deformation phenomenon. A passenger asked me if an orca was trying to surface underneath us. After reading through BoatsToGo.com website's FAQ's it became obvious that I had merely under inflated everything. With only a modest pressure increase I had a properly performing inflatable boat. So you ask: Do you leave your 12 ft. Saturn SD365 on your big inflatable boat? Ummmm no, it's in a closet in my condo. It actually folded up and fit into the well designed canvas storage bag that came with it. Perhaps I've become jaded by years of marketing hype that usually fails to deliver as advertised. I just stood there and stared at it with incredulity after in fit on the first try. This kind of thing doesn't happen to me. Another cocktail and savor the accomplishment. \r\n\r\nRegarding my Saturn inflatable boat I will say this: THE MORE I DO IT THE MORE I LIKE IT!

I have a 12ft. boat w/a 25hp, that I purchased a few years ago (5/5/05) from your company. And I go crazy in it... I love it! I have jumped off boat wake in the bay behind my house: took it to Costa Rica and had it in the ocean with like 10 ft surf.....jumping them. Beach launched for spear fishing.....everything. But now the boat is still in Costa Rica and it is time for a new one. I have put that one thru hell. And one last thing, I don't think anyone has put your boats thru the things that I have. I have jumped it so high that I hit bottom and sear the motor mount (clamp) off. And I still haven't had a problem with it falling apart yet, besides a little delamination in the transom: and when I drive my boat I drive it to go as fast as I can...

I purchased my SD 365 3 years ago from you and have been extremely pleased. We have fished in the little boat from the far northern lakes of Northern Saskatchewan to the Sea of Cortez off Baja. I have a 9.9 Yamaha 2 stroke and it moves it along at about 15 - 18 miles per hour. I have a short shaft outboard but I added about a 1 inch strip to the top of the transom as I found the leg of the engine with the hydrofoil on was running too deep in the water at a plane. It helped to get the boat to plane easier. Our little boat has been portaged over Beaver Dams, run rapids in rivers, dragged across beaches in Mexico and only a few scratches. The only leak was in the air floor from a dropped fishing knife, no big deal to fix. I would strongly recommend your product to anyone who is looking for a good all round boat for all conditions.

Hey, I just wanted to finally thank you for the awesome boat. I got the 12ft inflatable dingy with the air floor in January of 2010. This was a great solution for me. I live in an apartment and store the boat deflated on a trailer in my parent's backyard with a waterproof tarp over it. The neighborhood won't allow boats but since it sits on a small trailer, they don't even know it's a boat! Storability is the greatest advantage about this inflatable boat. Plus I plan on carrying the boat and outboard to the basement during the winter. I have gone out about 8 times this year and hope to go out a lot more next year. I would really recommend anyone to get some kind of hydrofoil for the outboard. They really do work, I gained 2mph, and the boat just feels a lot more stable. Turns are flatter and getting to plane is a quick process. Also check out my YouTube video below!

The Saturn 12 footer I bought from you is the most fun boat we've ever had over the last 35 years. It turns heads every time we're out on the water with it and folks always stop for a closer look at the boat ramp and ask a lot of questions about it. Another great thing to mention is how easy it is to paddle the boat in either direction! It just glides across the water. I also bought a 9.8 Nissan four stroke for this boat and swear you couldn't burn 3 gallons of gas in it in an entire day. Had to take it out in the ocean, just to try it out and it was more fun then I could ever imagine. Completely safe and super stable. Big boat wakes, in the Intercostals Waterway, are a snap with this boat! Ran it once, with just my 210 lbs in it, and it was scary fast! LOL! With the wife and I in it it runs about 16 - 18 knots at full plane using half throttle! Really and exceptional boat...

Hello, I received 12' boat that I ordered from you, and got to use it for the first time the other day. From the first time I inflated it, I have been amazed at the quality and construction of this boat. I expected a moderately decent boat with no frills, but this thing is awesome. I couldn't believe the bomb-proof construction of the tubes...they're rock solid, and the air floor is unbelievably comfortable, yet amazingly rigid. I put a 25hp outboard on it, and it is wickedly fast. It also easily smashes through 3 to 4 foot waves. I will be using it in the Gulf of Mexico in open ocean in a week or so, and I will be able to send you some pictures or video then. Please feel free to use anything I have said on your website, as I wish more people to know of your outstanding quality and service ...I wish nothing in return, except that you keep doing what you are doing. Your help and patience with my constant questions was very much appreciated...By the way, if anyone wants to know, the 12' inflatable with the air floor runs 28 MPH with a 25 hp outboard. That's with 2 people on board.
