9.6' Saturn Hypalon Inflatable boats are great as a tender for a yacht and sailboats.

Made from Achilless Hypalon. Fabric Made In Japan.

Hypalon made boats are best suited for use in Tropical environment, where heat and humidity will affect PVC seams in a long run. That is why Hypalon is preferred fabric for boaters in a South hemisphere. If you are in a Florida, Caribbean, Central or South America, then Hypalon fabric boat is a must. It will provide longer life span, and doesn't require as much extra care and protection as PVC boats would. UV rays, heat and humidity does not affect Hypalon made boats when left unprotected. While PVC boats must be stored in a well ventilated shaded area when not in use, Hypalon boats are less demanding in terms of storage.

Ahilles Hypalon Fabric Structure

New HP line of inflatable boats is made of Achilles Hypalon fabric, 1100 denier. 1100D polyester core with Neoprene backing for superior air retention. Made in Japan. Achilles warranty on a fabric is 10 years. Warranty from Saturn is 5 years on seams and transom.

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 the boat on plane.
