SATURN SD230 inflatable boat is a smallest dinghies available with high-pressure inflatable air floor.

Saturn inflatable boats are made of 1100 denier Korean PVC fabric with polyester support that has excellent resistance to tearing, tension and breaking. It is a much more heavy-duty PVC fabric than most of our competitors with 1000 denier PVC inflatable boats.

The Saturn SD230 inflatable boat comes standard with a high-pressure drop stitch air deck floor. Our drop stitch floors can take up to 9 psi of air pressure, and become extremely rigid once properly inflated. Not only do air floors make inflatable boats much lighter and more compact when deflated, but they also make it much easier to assemble and disassemble the boat. You simply unroll it and pump in air with the included hand pump. To deflate the boat, simply open all air valves and start rolling the boat from the transom, or quickly suck all air out with an electric pump. Click to see how to deflate and fold your inflatable boat.

SD230 inflatable boat is lightweight, does not take much space and can be carried by one person. This model of inflatable dinghy will take up to 2.5 HP short shaft outboard motor, and can carry up to 1-2 people comfortably or 3 people maximum. SD230 also great with small electric trolling motor as an economical alternative.

SD230 SATURN inflatable boat is excellent as a small rowing dinghy. You can easily reach your sailboat or go for the day of fishing on a lake. SD230 moves nice and easy when rowing, and due to the high stability of inflatable boat, it is possible to stand up for fly fishing or while boarding your yacht. Double layers of fabric at the bottom of the tubes and rub-strake protector along the keel provide extra protection from sharp rocks and abrasive sand. The safety valve will prevent excessive air pressure in the boats chambers.

New and improved Saturn SD230 V2.0 has an all around splash guard with safety grab rope. Grommets on splash guard make it easier to attach bimini, gear and makes tubes higher.

Quick Tip! Worried about puncturing the air floor with a fishing hook, dog claws or sharp object? Get a piece of vinyl flooring or rubber mat from your local hardware store. Cut the vinyl to fit inside the boat, over the floor and your air floor will be almost indestructible! When deflating, just roll it up along with the boat for future use.

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 was perfect for me, I am absolutely thrilled with my purchase. I will recommend this to anyone who wants a very affordable dinghy that is made of great quality pvc.

This small dinghy is perfect for our 30FT boat. We use it to get to land and back. if you have a trolling motor it will be enough to get it moving. I also purchase the boat cover for it, since it will be outside most of the year. Great and affordable dinghy.

Very small, affordable boat. I gave it to my father for his birthday, and he loves it. Extremely light weight and easy to inflate. Gray seems to be the only color available, but it doesn't get very hot out in the sun.

Very compact and light but very strong, the material is very good. I am quite happy with my purchase.

What a nice boat, I was expecting something less quality at this low price, but this dinghy exceeded my expectation. Thanks for great boat!

Wanted something i could take in the back of my sedan. The SD230 fits with room to spare. I mainly use it for fishing recreational use. My kids also use it and really like it. It's held up all these years and i don't usually write reviews but this boat really surprised me.

I’ve been sailing since I was a little kid, and I’ve had my own sailboat since I can remember. But sometimes, depending on where I am, bringing it all the way to shore for a short time on land is a pain in the butt. I solved that problem by buying the Saturn SD230 inflatable boat to use as a dinghy. Problem solved!\r\n\r\nThis thing takes up like no space on my sailboat. I just store her deflated. When it’s time to use her, I just then pull her out, inflate her, and toss a little outboard right on the back of her. I’m on dry land in no time at all.\r\n\r\n\r\n
