It also great as a large dinghy to carry up to 6 persons maximum from main ship to the shore. It also great as a weekend pleasure cruiser for entire family!
With a 15 HP motor and one person, this inflatable boat will fly like a Jet Ski! The SD385 sport runabout was also tested to easily get on plane with a 15 HP outboard engine and 3-4 people, with a cruising speed around of 20-30 mph.
Deflated, the SD385 boat will fold to the size of one large bag with tubes and another flat bag with a floor. Once deflated and folded, the SD385 can be easily stored in the back of your SUV or minivan or in a large closet of your apartment. Bag with deflated and packed boat can be easily carried around with inexpensive foldable 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.
We now offer Saturn SD385 with high-pressure air deck floor, for easier assembly, deployment and greater portability. If you are planning on inflating/deflating boat for each use, then air floor is a must.
New features further improve inflatable boats durability and practicality:
Quick Tip! Worried about the heavy weight of a hard floored boat? Don't break your back! Get a foldable hand cart from any retail store to carry the folded boat around. Even inexpensive dolly movers will work great for transporting a folded or fully inflated boat. Get dinghy dolly wheels to easily move the inflated boat across the shore and into the water.
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.
