Hey guys, I got my Saturn SD470 about a year and a half ago and have put close to 200hrs on it. I have to say I love this boat. I mostly snorkel and free dive off Palm Beach with it, but last May I took it to the Bahamas. We stopped to clear customs in the east end and then continued towards Lucaya.It took about six hours to make Atlantic crossing from Boynton inlet to Bahamas on this boat. We were planing on towing it over behind the big boat but the morning we left the ocean was dead calm so I decided that I would use it as a scout boat to see if we could find any boards floating, with fish on them. We did, caught some dolphin and made the 90 or so mile trip to Freeport without a problem.The best part was we made the trip over on about 6 gallons of gas. I have a Yamaha F25 four stroke, and we weren't setting any speed records, but you cannot beat that. The boat will do about 15kt loaded down with 6 people plus a large cooler I use for a seat and all our snorkeling gear. Alone it does about 20kt, not bad. I keep mine covered and had one hole in it from a rogue barnacle at the doc, easy repair though, even at sea with the included patch kit. Love the boat, and would recommend it to anyone on a budget looking for a very sea worthy boat.

Used Zodiac F470 as a Tactical Diver for over 12 years. Different variations of Avons and Zodiacs up to the F470. 23 Years of operations. I have piloted a SD430 recently and preferred it over the Avons and comparable Zodiacs.

I have had my SD365 since this last fall and now have begun to run it out on our small lake by the house. With the 25 hp 2-stroke Tohatsu motor and the hard wood floor (converted a SD385 floor to fit) this boat flies.

I used Saturn inflatable boat for almost a year now. Boat hold air very well, no problems there... I used 15HP outboard and it just flying on a lake.

What a great boat i took my SD365 out for the first time yesterday and am very Happy with the performance and comfort. 4 of us and 3 dogs just floated down the river in the slow parts of the river i towed them in their rafts i had a small 8 horse power outboard on there was some shallow place's but no problem i raised the motor was able to float in about 6ins of water very easy to row the air floor is very sturdy i used a small 1 gallon shop vac to inflate the boat and toped it of with the hand pump that came with the boat it took about 10 mins if you want a fun sturdy easy boat this is it ....BoatsToGo was a pleasure to deal with had my boat in 4 days after ordering it ...Thank you ..

I am completely satisfied with the model SD430 I purchased from you last year. Quality construction. Good performance. Excellent value. The boat is everything you represented it to be and more.

Just wanted to tell you how much I love my 15 ft Kaboat. I get compliments wherever I go. I fish it in both freshwater and salt and it has performed wonderfully. Very stable, safe and fun. After seeing my boat in action, no one I know wants a canoe anymore.... The best part is: completely portable and no maintenance!!!! What's not to love? I keep it in the backseat of my Ford Taurus. Whoever designed it should get the Nobel prize for boat design. I put a 3 HP mercury on it and it really moves. Just can't say enough. Thanks Boats-to-go!

Hey, I just wanted to finally thank you for the awesome boat. I got the 12ft inflatable dingy with the air floor in January of 2010. This was a great solution for me. I live in an apartment and store the boat deflated on a trailer in my parent's backyard with a waterproof tarp over it. The neighborhood won't allow boats but since it sits on a small trailer, they don't even know it's a boat!Storability is the greatest advantage about this inflatable boat. Plus I plan on carrying the boat and outboard to the basement during the winter. I have gone out about 8 times this year and hope to go out a lot more next year. I would really recommend anyone to get some kind of hydrofoil for the outboard. They really do work, I gained 2mph, and the boat just feels a lot more stable. Turns are flatter and getting to plane is a quick process. Also check out my you tube video!
