    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 perimeter, 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.

This fully equipped Inflatable Boat has been over 2 years in the making. It started as a simple rolled up Inflatable Boat for leisure at home and has been turned into a fully equipped tiny boat that is ready to take on anything.

I USE IT to escape in nature and to go on adventures, fishing, and swimming. Living fullest
when in contact with water, this tiny boat has been the best decision of my life.

Panda OVERBOARD out!

I spent 100+ hours researching my first inflatable boat purchase. It didn't take long to chose the brand (Saturn) and distributer ( BoatsToGo). It took much longer to chose the model. The boat is used by me, my wife and our golden retriever. We like to birdwatch, and slow cruise down the rivers in Florida.
It's hard to tell over the internet just how big these boats are.

The SD365 is the PERFECT size for what we wanted. We could have gone with a 330 too. It's amazing how good of a quality boat you can get for the price.
I wasn't sure about the air floor, but we love it. My wife loves walking on it.

Being such a discount purchase, I was wary of the customer service. Eliot put any doubts I had at ease. We had a small issue with a valve, and Eliot was VERY responsive to my emails and VERY thorough to make sure we were taken care of. I could not be any happier.

I can already tell, that this is my first of many purchases from this company. What a fun, inexpensive, safe and easy way to enjoy some time on the water. Wonderful experience with Boats To Go!!

This is a seriously good inflatable- We’ve had it about a year now and take it out on runs around South Puget Sound regularly - It ran well with a tiny suzuki 2.5 but we upped to a tohatsu 6hp which is a sweet combo- not a speed-demon but great for going out on picnics and cruising the Salish Sea. I’ve stored it on a trailer outside all winter and it loses no air at all.

The SD365 is one of the most reliable dinghies I have ever owned. I have gone to great lengths to keep it in good condition and it eventually broke after almost 5 years at which point I simply bought a new one, same model same color. I am very happy with the quality and price options offered by boats to go.

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!
