Saturn SD470 Inflatable boats

If you own a standard fiberglass boat, it may seem odd to even think about purchasing an inflatable boat to replace it. But when you really consider some of the downsides and annoyances of owning a hard-hull boat, it may not be so strange. After all, companies like Saturn design and manufacture inflatable boats specifically for boat-owners just like you. So open your mind and consider these reasons that you might want to replace your fiberglass boat with a high-end rubber boat like the 16’ Saturn SD470.

Inflatable Boats are Much More Convenient

Are you tired of having to load your fiberglass boat on a trailer to pull it to the water, then do the same thing when you’re done with boating for the day? Or if you store it in the water, isn’t it annoying to clean the bottom of it? If you want to keep your boat at your house, doesn’t it limit the places you can live? With an inflatable boat like the SD470, all of these issues disappear. For starters, transporting one of these rubber boats is as easy as tossing it in its handy carrying case and putting it in the trunk of your car. At only 240 pounds, two people can easily carry it wherever it needs to go. When you get to your destination, you can easily inflate it with the included hand pump and put it right in the water. And when you’re done for the day, you can just deflate it and drive home. You can even pack it on a plane for a family trip!

You Will Save a Ton of Money

We can start with the price of the SD470 rubber raft, which at $1,599 will save you possibly tens of thousands of dollars over a fiberglass boat. If you already have a hard-hull boat, imagine how much money you’ll net when you sell it and buy one of these comparable inflatable boats. But the savings don’t end there. When you add in the amount of money you spend to dock your fiberglass boat, fix it when it has issues, and gas it up when you go out on the water, we are talking about a ton of savings!

Inflatable Boats are Way More Versatile

For the most part, inflatable boats can do basically everything that a hard-hull boat can do. They’re great for fishing on a calm lake or speeding across ocean waves. But inflatable boats can also do some things that their fiberglass counterparts cannot. They can go where other boats can’t go, such us rafting down whitewater rapids. They are also versatile enough to be used with a motor when you want a less strenuous day out on the water, or oars when you want to get some exercise. They also carry a large load, as the SD470 inflatable motor boat can support 8 people and an 1,800 pound loading capacity.

These are just a few reasons why you should consider selling your fiberglass boat and replacing it with a high-end inflatable boat.
