13' Extra Heavy-Duty Inflatable Boat FB385

"We're gonna need a bigger boat" - Longer, wider, larger tubes than FB300/365!

New Saturn Inflatable Fishing Boats FB385 was based on popular FB300 and FB365 boat. But, FB385 boats were made Longer, Wider and Larger Tubes diameter than FB300 and FB365, for more space inside and higher buoyancy. New Saturn FB385 series boats were designed to take a serious beating! It is almost OVERKILL. Made from heavy-duty, commercial grade 1100 Denier German Heytex PVC, but on top of that we added extra wide and extra thick rub protectors on the bottom of tubes, over keel, and on top of boat tubes!

In addition, there is a 2nd layer of extra thick 1.5mm PVC glued along the bottom of the tubes, all the way up to rub strakes on side of tubes. And, whole vessel bottom is also made of extra heavy-duty 1.5mm PVC fabric. That is the most extra protection available for any inflatables on a market today!

It is well known, that space inside inflatable boats, between two tubes, is at premium. To address this issue, we invented new, patent pending cargo lacing system on top of tubes, so that to move cargo from inside boat cockpit into over tubes areas. That way, cargo taking valuable space inside boat, can be instead secured on top of tubes, freeing more of seating area.

Saturn FB series inflatable motor rafts feature set of two grommeted PVC strips that are shifted off center of tubes, leaving enough space to store bags and gear on top of tubes. Any type of cargo can be lashed down using bangee cords, ropes, tied downs or straps using grommets in splash guards. Area between splash guards protected by extra wide rub strake, so that to avoid accidental damages to top of boat tubes. You can also seat on top of tubes, or even secure wooden board and mount chair on it! There are endless possibilities for DIY modifications and add-ons.

New Saturn FB385 is an extra heavy-duty inflatable boat, primarily designed for fishing. Motor mount was added in the bow section of the boat to install electric trolling motor. Motor mount is included as a bonus gift, suitable for up to 55lbs electric trolling motors with long shaft. In addition, two sockets for detachable fishing rod holders were added on top of tubes in the bow area. High quality adjustable fishing rod holders are also included as bonus!

Heavy-duty sectional aluminum floor, extra protection layers all over boat, numerous D-rings and grommets eyelets, makes Saturn FB385 inflatable fishing boat an excellent choice for fishing, hunting, work, hauling, diving, pleasure cruising or as dinghy tender for yacht or sail boat.

Just got mine and I'm pumped. I am a newbie so I'll provide some tips. This thing is badass! Take care of it and it will last a lot longer than the 5 years they say these boats last. These new and improved heavy duty ones are awesome. Tips: 1) Get an electric pump with setting for inflatables, get it to 3psi, and finish it off with the hand pump provided. 2) Practice the set up!! Inflating is easy but the Aluminum floor could be tricky so do it a few times till you get the set up down to 15 min. 3) Take your time! 4) Save your back and get a few stadium seats with backs. Or customize it with swivel seats drilled into the floor! You'll be happy you did!
