12.5' Saturn Heavy-Duty Inflatable Fishing Raft FR380

Based on a popular design of RD365 Saturn light river rafts, new longer 12.5' FR385 fishing rafts are great for fly fishing, river rafting, kayaking, or as a ducky boat on rivers, lakes and ponds. High rocker offers an exhilarating ride on whitewater river, like no other raft or kayak! New Saturn FR385 fishing river rafts are excellent whitewater paddle vessels for 1-2 people.

Saturn FR380 river rafts specifications

Saturn fishing raft FR380 great for weekend river or lake explorations, and fly fishing. They provide stable platform for standing and fly fishing for 1 or 2 people. What makes it different from RD365 raft, is not only slightly longer hull, but also additional layers of PVC glued on a bottom of tubes and on top of tubes. That makes FR380 raft ideal for shallow rocky bottom rivers. Double layers on top of tubes, and D-rings along hull are designed for optional rowing frame installation, turning it into a real fly fishing machine. We have rowing frames in our Accessories section. Rowing frames can also be DIY made from aluminum tubes, or quickly welded in a local aluminum welding shop. Just search Google for aluminum welding shop near you.

FR380 river rafts are not self-bailers, but can be converted into self-bailers simply by cutting round holes size of a dime in bottom, along the floor perimeter.

  • Heavy duty 1,100 Dtex High Strength PVC fabric coated on both side with 1100 g/m2, 0.9mm. Fabric is thick, puncture proof and abrasion resistant.
  • Removable high-pressure dropt-stitch air deck floor.
  • Industry standard Halkey-Roberts flat valves design.
  • Rubbing strake all around the raft.
  • Additional PVC layers on bottom of tubes, up to rub strake, and on top of tubes.
  • Included: hand pump, carry bag and repair kit.
  • Thwarts are NOT included. Raft best to be used with optional rowing frame as shown in below video.

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.

This raft is a very high quality raft, I think the size is perfect and I am very happy to have found boats to go.

I was pleasantly surprised, It was a bit different than I expected but the design is very cool. The design is very sleek and I found the performance to be quite adequate. This is a very good price for the size and I am very happy to have bought this inflatable.

This heavy-duty raft is much bigger than I expected, I suggest using a tape measure so really get a good feel for what 12 and a half feet actually are. When fully inflated it feels as big as a car (which might be what you are looking for).

The quality feels great and so does the fabric, It looks and handles very well manufactured. I think this is a solid raft and I look forward to riding it often. I will come back and update the review If I find any flaws.

I was looking for something simple for fishing and found this raft to be excellent. I don't know how the price is so low but I aint complainin.

I bought my FR380 a while ago and so far I have had some great experiences and built quite a lot of memories with it. I accidentally punctured it with a hook but was able to patch it up nicely and it did not affect its seaworthiness which was a concern in the moment.

After testing it thoroughly I believe its one of the better rafts I have ever owned, its very tough and quite well sized for my needs. I have tested it by myself as well as friends and we all concluded its a really good raft.

I purchased it and received the package absurdly quickly, I think it took less than 3 days from the day I ordered which was unexpected. The purchasing experience was easy and overall I have nothing but good things to say.

Thanks Boatstogo!
