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 bangee 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.

Saturn HD430 inflatable boats come with a 5 section heavy-duty aluminum floor. Floor installation steps are here. Please note that tubes and keel must be as hard as rock when inflated to avoid cracking to the floor.

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.

This is a very fully featured craft with lots of well-chosen designs. I absolutely love my heavy-duty 430 inflatable. It is a very heavy boat so I suggest finding help when moving it around, after getting it out of the water it can feel like it weighs 150lbs but it's easy to roll up and store if that is what you need. It is a very good looking boat and people stop and ask me all the time where I got it from, they are even more shocked by how affordable inflatables are. I am quite proud of owning this boat and I am very happy with the service boats to go provides.

So we bought this boat for the versatile nature that comes with something you can store on a shelf and transport in the bed of a truck. It did not disappoint. It can be set up by a single person (and an autoinflator) in about 30 minutes. Now here's a few things you should know and get right off the bat.........source extra plugs for it. The ones they have are tethered but no matter how hard you try you will lose them. Get a wheel kit.... especially if you're going to an area that has tides. It will keep the prop out of the mud when beaching it and when you tie off. We put a 20 hp mercury which is 100 lbs and way more than enough for all three of us. Still looking for a means to secure the registration sticker. These boats are legit, they are rock solid when inflated and rigid while under way. The metal floor can be cumbersome while putting in and removing, but solid once inflated and when they make an inflatable floor for the 14 ft ( hint hint ) I'll buy it for short day trips.

My order was delayed for a couple of days because fedex was experiencing delays, but other than that I had no issues with shipping. It arrived in a decently healthy box (a bit dirty) But everything inside was in perfect condition, I unrolled and inflated and It looks wonderful. I will take it into the water this weekend and report back.

This very large boat and it takes while to inflate you should have a electric inflator with you or you will be tired pumping air hahaha.

It is 14 feet long and very spacious. I fit my family inside all 6 of us and it is much fun to be on water. I buy a 20 horse power outboard motor and it runs very good and fast I have no complain over this matter.

Construction of boat looks very good to my eyes and it feel like great quality material when you touch. It assembled very nicely and easy to store away in vehicle when done with it. The boat looks very nice in water and we take many pictures in it, I review this to be a very good boat.

I order online and it was fast to arrive to my home. It very well packed in heavy box and looks all good all out of box with many accessories plus I buy. Boatstogo very good company and good prices, thanks.


I've had my HD430 for a couple of months now, it's been out in the water over half a dozen times, I purchased mine with a bimini top as well as other accessories like an electric pump (Which you should have if you plan to inflate it each time). So far only good things to say bout it. The craft is superb with lots of extra protection, it has a bunch of chambers in the body of the boat so it gives me peace of mind to be out and not worry about puncture as much.

You should know that it comes in two separate boxes which lead to a bit of confusion on my end but were quickly clarified by the support team from Boatstogo. The boat arrived quickly and I had no issues with the whole process of ordering online.

Overall I give this product five stars because it is an excellent offer, specially since I got it on sale and have had such a great experience with it.

This is one of my most recommended boats to buy when people ask me, when you go down the feature list you realize there is nothing better when it comes to money for quality. First of all heat-welded seams are a must since I live in a very hot humid climate, this thing is truly heavy-duty, the weight of the boat and fabric alone is like 150lb's so best have someone to help you carry it, I decided to instead put it on a trailer and treat it like a regular hard-shell boat. The floor is also very sturdy and solid once assembled. It also does not take much to get this thing to plane, its very performant which is very fun. In general this was an absolute quality buy and I am thankful to have made it.
