SD290 inflatable dinghies take up to a 10 HP short shaft outboard motor and can carry up to 4 people maximum. reliable inflatable dinghy is about the most important piece of equipment that a experienced cruiser can own. With a 10 HP outboard motor this boat will fly over the water at a speed of 20 mph.
Our inflatable boats are made of 100 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 boats.
The Saturn SD290 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.
Deflated, the SD290 boat will fold to the size of a medium bag. Once deflated and folded, the SD290 can be easily stored in the trunk of your car or in a closet of your apartment. Bag with deflated and packed boat can be easily carried around with inexpensive foldable hand cart. Inflated boat can be easily transported with help of our removable dinghy wheels that are attached to the transom.
The SD290 is great as an inflatable fishing boat. You can stand on the air floor just the same way you would stand on a plywood floor. The SD290 was tested to run nicely with an electric trolling motor. This boat is a must for RV owners or anyone who wants to be on the water quick and on a budget.
New features further improve SD290 inflatable dinghy durability and practicality:
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.

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 the boat on plane.
