New Saturn Inflatable Fishing Boats FB385 was based on popular FB300 and FB365 boat. But, FB385 fishing boats were made longer, wider and with larger tubes than FB300 and FB365, for more space inside and higher buoyancy. It is always better to have more boat on a water than less!
Saturn FB385 series of inflatable boats were designed to take a serious beating! It is almost OVERKILL. Made from heavy-duty, commercial grade 1100 Denier German Heytex PVC. Then 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 both sides of tubes. And, whole vessel bottom is also made of extra heavy-duty 1.5mm PVC fabric. And, to top it all off, there is an extra layer on top of high pressure air deck floor! 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 gear and cargo from out of 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 inside boat.
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 bungee 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. Attachments for optional motor mount were added in the bow section of the boat, in case if trolling motor need to be mounted in front. In addition, two sockets for detachable fishing rod holders were added on top of tubes in the bow area.
Heavy-duty air deck floor with extra tracking pad on top, 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.
