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 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.
