13' Extra Heavy-Duty Inflatable Boat FB385

New V3.0 with fiberglass covered transom, heat welded seams and air deck floor.

Introducing the newest addition to our lineup: the Saturn Inflatable Fishing Boats FB385. Building upon the success of the FB300 and FB365 models, the FB385 is longer, wider, and boasts larger tubes for increased space and buoyancy. Because let's face it, when it comes to being out on the water, having more boat is always better!

Crafted with durability in mind, the Saturn FB385 series is designed to withstand even the toughest conditions. Constructed from heavy-duty, commercial-grade 1100 Denier German Heytex PVC, these boats are practically indestructible. We've gone the extra mile by adding extra-wide and extra-thick rub protectors on the bottom of the tubes, over the keel, and on top of the boat tubes for maximum protection.

But we didn't stop there. We've also included a second layer of extra-thick 1.5mm PVC along the bottom of the tubes, extending all the way up to the rub strakes on both sides, along with an entire vessel bottom made of extra heavy-duty 1.5mm PVC fabric. And to top it off, there's an additional layer on top of the high-pressure air deck floor, providing unparalleled protection in the market.

Recognizing the importance of maximizing space inside inflatable boats, we've developed a patent-pending cargo lacing system on top of the tubes. This innovative design allows you to move gear and cargo from the cockpit to the tube areas, freeing up valuable seating space inside the boat.

Saturn Fishing Boat FB385 Tech Specs

Equipped with a set of two grommeted PVC strips shifted off-center of the tubes, the Saturn FB385 allows for easy storage of bags and gear on top of the tubes. Secure your cargo using bungee cords, ropes, tiedowns, or straps attached to the grommets in the splash guards. The area between the splash guards is protected by an extra-wide rub strake to prevent accidental damage to the top of the boat tubes. Plus, you can even seat on top of the tubes or secure a wooden board and mount a chair for added comfort and convenience.

Designed primarily for fishing, the Saturn FB385 features attachments for an optional motor mount in the bow section, perfect for mounting a trolling motor. Additionally, two sockets for detachable fishing rod holders have been strategically placed on top of the tubes in the bow area.

With its heavy-duty air deck floor, extra protection layers, numerous D-rings, and grommet eyelets, the Saturn FB385 is the ultimate inflatable fishing boat, suitable for a wide range of activities including fishing, hunting, work, hauling, diving, pleasure cruising, or serving as a dinghy tender for yachts or sailboats.

This is not for the weak, I underestimated how big and heavy-duty this boat is. The first time I set it up by myself it definitely takes some getting used to. 2nd time I got a friend to help me and it went much smoother. The boat itself is heavy and made of really strong material. The floor is very stable but it does require some assembly.

I found it perfect for fishing, I don't have to be as worried about the hooks or even some of the rocks near the river. The boat feels very sturdy and stable, I can't believe how much of a bargain this is, the price is insanely low considering all that you get.

This boat is very spacious I must say, although I have only had my buddy and me It feels like I could fit 5-6 people.

I tried using a trolling motor but it did not feel strong enough, so I ended up purchasing an outboard as well when I need to maneuver on a stream I use the trolling motor but when I need to move around fast I use the gas power.

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!

Have not put the boat in the water yet, still outfitting for use in spring 2017. I ordered the 4-bow bimini with my boat purchase only to find that it was too wide for the FB385. Looking at a potential workaround, but the narrower 2-bow bimini is a better choice for this unit. Everything else as advertised, highly recommend the digital high pressure electric pump.
