The 8'6" SS260 Saturn budget inflatable boat is one of the least expensive dinghies available on a market today.

It was designed with one purpose only - Make Boating Affordable! Great as a dinghy tender for yacht or sailboat, or just as all around small pleasure water craft for fishing, rowing and motoring on a budget.

This inflatable boat is lightweight and does not take up much space once deflated. SS260 boats can take up to a 5 HP short shaft outboard motor and can carry up to 3 people maximum. Because of its bright red color, this boat can also be used as a lifesaving raft in case of an emergency.

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.

The Saturn SS260 inflatable boat comes a slatted floor made of aluminum boards. These are same heavy-duty aluminum boards that are used for seats in all our Saturn boats. Aluminum slatted floor is much more reliable and rigid than regular plywood slatted floors available elsewhere. It will not break, it will not rot, it will not crack over time, and its corrosion-free! Slatted floor make it much easier to assemble and disassemble inflatable boat. You simply unroll it and pump in air with the included hand pump or optional electric air inflator. Since there are no need to inflate high-pressure air deck floor, inflation is a breeze an you will be on a water very quickly!

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.

I was looking at the SS260 on your site, but I had a bunch of questions. I like to use email so I can always go back to the info later. I emailed you guys, and you responded very quickly. I exchanged a bunch of emails with questions over the next couple weeks, and the responses were always so polite and helpful. I finally bought the boat and had it shipped to me house. When I opened it up, it was exactly how I pictured it! Thank you for being so helpful and honest. I will definitely recommend you to anyone I know who needs a boat.

My 7 year old daughter love to look out on the lake behind our house. I bought a little SS260 inflatable raft from you, and now I can take her out to the center. It’s not even a big lake, but it’s huge to her. She gets so excited. Thanks for giving me an easy way to bring her out there.\r\n\r\n\r\n
