12' SATURN SD365 is one of our best selling inflatable boats.

New Model V3.0 - German Heytex PVC, Heat Welded Seams, Fiberglass Covered Transom, Premium Quality.

Saturn SD365 inflatable boats are longer and wider than our popular 11ft SD330 inflatable boat models, and take up to a 30 HP outboard motor vs 15 HP max for SD330.

SD365 SATURN inflatable boats can be used for anything from a dinghy, to a fishing boat, to even a lifeboat or leisure boat. The SD365 boat is a large boat, but is still lightweight, and can be easily carried by one person with a wheel dolly. Great as a fishing boat too! Go boating without stretching your budget!

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 boats.

Saturn SD365 Inflatable Boat Specifications.

The Saturn SD365 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 SD365 boat will fold to the size of a large bag. Once deflated and folded, the SD365 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 folding hand cart. Inflated boat can be easily transported with help of our removable dinghy wheels that are attached to the transom.

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.


  • All around splash guard with grab line.
  • Separate internal air chambers.
  • One-way drain valve with plug.

New features further improve inflatable boats durability and practicality:

  • Air valves have been moved toward the inside of boat's tubes and away from direct exposure to the elements. This will allow easier inflation from inside the boat and will minimize damage caused by sun and rain while the boat is stored uncovered for prolonged periods of time. Rain water will not
    accumulate inside the valves.
  • Triangular symmetrical splash guards were installed on the transom corners to provide the sensitive transom of an uncovered boat with additional protection and shade from the elements throughout extended periods in Tropical environments.
  • All SD365 boats now come with splash guards and safety grab ropes all along tubes perimter, including bow area.

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.

Nice boat for camping. Only takes 10 minutes to setup. I’m using a 6 hp hangkai motor, but really need a little more power for two people + gear.

I am very happy with the boat. It was easy to inflate and I had no issues. I recommend these boats and at some point will purchase a rigid.

I have found Boatstogo awesome, I have asked several questions and I immediately get a response. They have provided answers to all my questions and also given me some ideas for DIY accessories. Great Company.

I've taken the boat out fishing over 10 times in the intracoastal waterway and have to say it's a good, solid boat. It handles all the boat and barge waves/wakes well. I protect the inflatable floor with two long 3'X7 outdoor mats with smooth, thick plastic bottoms and nonsoil type carpet, "looks like it came with the boat", my sister stated. They run up sides about 6 inches as well, for some side protection. I did let the boat ram an old wood dock and got a 1mm puncture in front chamber. I was still able to fish all day, the front was just soft. I later cleaned area with acetone and placed a tearaid patch on it, and all is well! The seams appear firm and tight, perfect. As far as boat weight, the 12' size is probably the maximum size I can lift and load in my SUV by myself. I have a 50LB thrust trolling motor that pushes it at decent speed. I wouldn't go less than 50LBs though. I bought transom wheels but haven't installed them. I just put the back half of boat in the water and start inflating. Once inflated I turn the back of the boat to front, towards land, and put my 2 batteries in the boat and motor on the transom so I'm not walking in the semi-deep water. I hope this review was helpful, and good luck.

My son and I have a blast in the sd365. We take the dog and gear, load the boat in the truck, and go camping. We inflate it upon arrival and use it all week. Then deflate, break camp, and head home. It's a great option for folks who cant park a boat in the yard and dont want the added expense of renting a space.

Bought the SD365 for me and my son to fish. It's been a ton of fun. Put a used 15 hp 2 stroke Johnson on it, goes about 18 mph with us and all our gear. Added transom wheels, and a couple low backed padded seats. We can disassemble and store in the garage in 30 min. So far we have inflated and deflated at least a dozen times. No issues or signs of wear.

I am very happy that I trusted the reviews of those previous satisfied purchasers before me. Having had a Zodiac 3.4m prior for twenty years, which had become irreparable due to it's age, I was skeptical of purchasing a Saturn because I was afraid that the quality would be inferior because of the very attractive price. But I decided to take a chance and try one. And I am glad I did! The quality of this Saturn boat did not disappoint me. In fact it very much impressed me!!! You will not be disappointed if you buy one, as the quality and value for the money is exceptional!!!

I purchased my Saturn SD365 to replace an aging and deteriorating 1982 Zodiac 3.4m inflatable which had served it's time well but had become irreparable. Like many other people who have written reviews on their purchase of a Saturn, I was skeptical of buying one due to the price which was relatively low compared to other well-known brands like Zodiac and Avon. But I trusted the integrity of the people writing their reviews and decided to take a chance on buying a Saturn, keeping my fingers crossed that it would not be an inferior product. IT IS NOT (inferior)!!! It is terrific value and I am extremely happy with my Saturn SD365, and happy that I trusted the reviews of those who had purchased on previously to me! You will not be disappointed in the quality and value of the product for the great price it is!

You just can't beat what you get for the money. I bought the SD365 and we all love it. We're going to put a shade over it and a steering console, with a seat and storage under for a couple of passengers and to haul groceries or other things. I could go on, but whats the point. Its just great compared to what some of the better know name brands cost. $3,000 - $4,000 or more for what, when you can purchase this for a third of the cost.

After 5 years and some scratches its still up and running this is some of the best quality fabric and construction I have found so far.

I purchased my 365SD in 2009. It has stood the test of 9 seasons of exploration....From Lake Champlain to the Atlantic ocean.....It has withstood barnacle scrapes of costal Maine to rocks in Henry David Thoreau's Concord River.
We went to the boat show in Newport, RI in September 2017 with the intent of getting a faster, rigid bottom inflatable. Nothing there impressed as much as our Korean made Saturn inflatable including Walker Bay, North Atlantic, Zodiac and others.....
After all these seasons, I am only going to replace the motor with a faster one and keep my SD365 that still looks new !

I bought the SD365 two years ago and love it!! This boat replaced a Zodiac inflatable I had for over 20 years this is a case where the motor outlasted the boat. The Saturn is easy to inflate and use, The hand pump works well and with the one-way valves pressure does not escape when you remove the air hose. Powered by a 1984 Mercury 25XD we fly at 26.5 mph with 2 adults wicked fun!! We covered the air floor with marine carpet, used 2 sided velcro to attach the boat registration to the side and used stencil and permanent marker for the registration numbers. I found that using an extension handle on the tiller handle helps move body weight further up reducing time to plane. I already had a fin on the motor , We bought the optional wheels and makes easy transport from the garage to the lake. Easy to pack in the minivan with motor on top. We took the boat out to the Wisconsin Dells and boated on the upper and lower dells, lots of compliments from people in the Duck Boats,
