SATURN SD430 boats have been used by many Fire Rescue and Emergency Departments across the country.
14' SATURN SD430 inflatable boats are made with premium quality materials, and can handle up to a maximum of 7 persons. Heavy-duty SD430 takes up to a maximum 40 HP outboard motor, but will run nicely with a 25 HP motor. As reported by our customers, even with a 15 HP outboard motor and 2 people this boat can plane nice and easy.
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 much more heavy-duty PVC fabric than most of our competitors with 1000 denier PVC boats.
Deflated, the SD430 boat will fold to the size of one large bag with tubes and another large flat bag with a floor. Once deflated and folded, the SD430 can be 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 a 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.
14' Saturn inflatable boats come standard with a 5 section heavy-duty marine grade plywood floor covered with gray resin. Plywood floor installation steps are here.

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.
