New Saturn HD385 model is much larger than our regular Saturn SD385. It is wider, longer inside and has much larger tube diameter. That is why it more expensive. Overall HD385 is more boat and more features than SD385. HD385 also wider than FB385, and have larger tube diameter. However, it lacking 2nd layer of PVC along bottom of tubes, and there is no front bow motor mount option. But, not everyone want to use motor in front, or drag boat over sharp rocks. There are however extra wide rub strakes along bottom of tubes. So, it is heavy-duty boat all around.

Saturn HD385 Heavy-Duty Inflatable Boat Specifications

Extra thick and wide rub strakes at the bottom of the tubes and along the keel provide superior protection from sharp objects in a water and shore. The safety valve will prevent excessive air pressure in the boats chambers. 5 separate air chambers provide additional safety layer to new HD series of boats.

What makes these boats unique, is a double grommet splash lines on top of tubes, with extra wide rub strake in between them. That area designed to be used for extra cargo, such as diving gear, fishing rods, coolers, boxes or duffel bags, etc. Any type of gear can be lashed down with bungee cords or tie downs between grommets. That will free up valuable real estate inside boat cockpit, leaving more space to operate boat and move around.

Quick Tip! Worried about the heavy weight of a hard floored boat? Don't break your back! Get a foldable hand cart from any retail store to carry the folded boat around. Even inexpensive dolly movers will work great for transporting a folded or fully inflated boat. Get dinghy dolly wheels to easily move the inflated boat across the shore and into the water.

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 boat on plane.
