Frequently Asked Questions:

  • Question: How to install optional keel?
  • Answer: While this boat was originally designed as a flat bottom boat, it is also possible to add optional DIY keel to improve performance and directional stability. It can be done by placing elongated semi-rigid structure under air floor while it deflated. There are 2 Velcro straps glued to the bottom of the boat, under air floor. These straps were designed to hold down for example foam swimming noodle, that can act as an improvised keel, or perhaps some other structure, such as shaped wooden keel for example. Easiest and simplest solution would be to purchase $3 large diameter foam swimming noodle in local retail store, such as Walmart or Target. That noodle will imitate inflatable keel when placed under air floor. It also could be possible to place PVC tubing inside that foam noodle, for additional rigidity. Two straps glued on bottom of boat, under air mat, will hold 1-2 noodles down. To increase rigidity, you can insert aluminum tubes inside foam noodle.
  • Question: What makes this boat cheaper than other Saturn Boats of similar size?
  • Answer: While this boat is made by same factory, and from same fabric as all other Saturn boats, this boat model does represent barre minimum, with smaller tube diameters, more narrow hull, no inflatable keel and no additional layers on bottom of tubes. This is a basic, flat bottom, no frills inflatable boat.

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 the boat on plane.

Perfect choice for the price to performance in the whole suite. Quality build with the expected features. Good service and easy to-use website. Delivery was on time and no issues. Time will tell how the durability will stack up. Wish will have more choices of colors.

I really like it! It's built tough at an affordable price. Her maiden voyage went very well. Don't do what I did which is assume the floor is not very firm and rush out and buy some plywood. Inflate it first and see if you like it. I think the plywood was overkill, a good mat or carpet would be fine for some extra protection. It's very firm like an inflatable paddleboard. Also, I never let an inflatable touch the ground, I always inflate on a blanket and move it to the water, never dragging it. I like it so much I'm kinda wanting a bigger one already! Ha!

I finally took the boat out this past weekend and I had a lot of fun, my wife and kids really loved it. It's big enough for 4 of us so it was perfect for us. The rope along the tubes is really nice, it really helped to get back into the boat. I was surprised at how heavy duty the fabric is and how stable it felt. I highly recommend this boat.

This is an incredible boat, I have taken it out every weekend since I bought it, I thought I would have to sell an arm and a leg to be able to feel like this, I am really thankful for boats to go for offering such a quality boat for a cheap price, I think this is hands down the best boat you can purchase on a budget in the US.

If you are thinking of buying it I would also recommend you get an electric pump, the first 2 times I used it I did it with the hand pump included and my arms was sore afterwards. You don't realize how big it actually is until you fully inflate it, it's quite big.

I also would recommend doing a DIY keel, its really easy to do and it adds a lot more stability, the added straps to the bottom are a really nice feature, good for them for adding this.

I have wanted to own a boat for the longest time but could not afford it until now, this was a really good find. I did a lot of research and was worried about the quality, my friends have told me that boats typically come unglued after a while, but when I saw that this boat is heat welded I knew I had found something special. So far this is a great purchase, I have used it twice and it feels like a premium experience, thanks Boats to go!

This craft is very lightweight yet it feels very durable, after having some bad experiences with glued seams this was the ideal next boat for me, welded seams are the best, I can have peace of mind of not having to deal with air leaks.

The price feels like a steal to be honest, especially at the current time when it's really hard finding good inflatables. I have used the boat three times now and it feels great.

Perfect size for me and my friends. It's really high quality and cheap. Came really well packed in its box and a bunch of accessories. It goes really fast with my 15HP outboard. Easy to deflate and throw into the back of my truck, only weights like 80 lbs deflated so it's very easy to haul around.
