The 8'6" SATURN SD260 inflatable boat is one of the smallest dinghies available with a high pressure air floor. A reliable tender is about the most important piece of equipment that a cruiser can own. The SD260 is great as a tender for yachts or sailboats.
This inflatable boat is lightweight and does not take up much space once deflated. SD260 boats can take up to a 8 HP short shaft outboard motor and can carry up to 3 people maximum. This boat can also be used as a lifesaving raft in case of an emergency.
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.
The Saturn SD260 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.

SD260 SATURN inflatable boat is excellent as a small rowing dinghy. You can easily reach your sailboat or go for the day of fishing on a lake. SD260 moves nice and easy when rowing, and due to the high stability of inflatable boat, it is possible to stand up for fly fishing or while boarding your yacht. This boat is a must for RV owners or anyone who wants to be on the water quick and on a budget. Click here to read inflatable boats reviews of our customers.
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.

Read what our customers are saying about SD260 SATURN boat:
|"I guess you hear this quite often, but I thought you might like to hear it again. After inflating, deflating and packing my SD260 it became evident that I made a wise purchase. I was expecting that deflating and packing my SD260 would be a chore, not so. The design of the carry bag is ingenious. Although a bit heavy for a 155 lb senior citizen, it can be done. At least to my car! It's a bit (VERY) cold in New York right now, however, as soon it gets warmer I am going to hit the water. I have been kayaking for years, now that I am 70 a motor is a plus."|
Bob, New York.
|" I bought my first Saturn, a 260, about 5 years ago when I had a 28' express cruiser. It was the perfect size to fit on the bow so that I could take it with me to the Southern California Channel Islands. I had looked at a lot of inflatable PVC boats in stores and on the docks, and I figured out that I couldn't beat the 260 for appearance, price and quality.... "|

New features further improve inflatable boats durability and practicality:
- Air valves have been moved toward the inside of boat's tubes and away
from direct exposure to the elements. This will allow easier inflation from
inside the boat and will minimize damage caused by sun and rain while the
boat is stored uncovered for prolonged periods of time. Rain water will not
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.
