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 PURCHASED THE 16 FT. SATURN BOAT AND I'M EXTREMELY HAPPY WITH IT. I HAVE TO SAY THAT NOT ONLY WAS THE PRICE AFFORDABLE BUT THE QUALITY OF THE BOAT EXCEEDED MY EXPECTATIONS!!!
