15' SATURN SD470 inflatable boats are made with premium quality materials, and can handle up to a maximum of 8 persons. It is big boat and that is what you need in open ocean, river or bay. It always better to have more boat on a water than less.

SD470 inflatable motor boats are made of 1100 denier German Heytex 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 heavy-duty outer layer, protects the boat against UV rays, ozone and abrasion, and inner layers provides perfect strength and adhesion. Click here to find out more about our PVC fabric.

Deflated, the SD470 boat will fold to the size of one large and heavy bag with tubes and another large and heavy flat bag with a floor. Once deflated and folded, the SD470 can be stored in the back of your SUV or minivan, large closet of your apartment or in a garage.

Double layers of fabric at the bottom of the tubes and a 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 boat's chambers.

15' SATURN inflatable boats come standard with a sectional heavy-duty aluminum floor. The bow section is made of a marine grade plywood floor covered with a gray resin. Aluminum floor installation steps are here.


Saturn SD470 review Saturn SD470 review Saturn SD470 review

"I use my boat to go offshore fishing and take it 20 miles offshore on calm days to fish. When I bring all my fish into the boat ramp and clean them people constantly ask me about the boat.

I attached some photos to show you the fishing success I have had on the boat. I also attached a link to an article in San Sentinel that was written about me and the Saturn. I just think the amount of miles I put on the boat are far more then most of your customers. Like I said before I take the boat 20 miles off shore and with trolling in between. I probably put 60 miles round trip on the boat most times I take it out. The positive part is I can travel all those miles and use only 5 gallons of gas." Adam M. Florida

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.

Quick Tip! Worried about the heavy weight of a hard floored boat? Don't break your back! Get a foldable hand cart from any retail store to carry the folded boat around. Even inexpensive dolly movers will work great for transporting a folded or fully inflated boat. Get dinghy dolly wheels to easily move the inflated boat across the shore and into the water.

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.

I am having to pinch myself with every upgrade I do to my boat. It's not in the water yet I am so fricking excited about my sound purchase!

The SD470 inflatable boat offers unmatched versatility and convenience. When deflated, it folds down to a compact size, allowing for easy storage in the back of our vehicle or even in a closet. The double layers of fabric at the bottom of the tubes and the rub-strake protector along the keel provide added protection against rocks and sand. We appreciate the thoughtful design elements that prioritize safety and durability, ensuring a worry-free boating experience.

The maximum capacity of the SD470 is stated as 8 persons, but it may feel slightly crowded with that many onboard. However, with 5-6 people, there is ample space for everyone to comfortably enjoy their time on the water. The boat's ability to accommodate a larger group is a testament to its impressive size and design. Embrace the opportunity to create unforgettable memories with your loved ones aboard this remarkable inflatable boat, even if it means having a cozy and close-knit experience.

One thing I particularly love is the heavy-duty marine grade aluminum floor. This sturdy foundation provides a level of stability that is unparalleled. It also adds to the overall resilience of the boat, allowing it to withstand the harshest of conditions. The separate internal air chambers are another feature that stands out, as they give an added level of safety and peace of mind. All in all, a fantastic boat that I can't recommend enough.

I had my doubts, but the 15' Inflatable Boat SD470 proved me wrong. It's far from a cheap kayak toy and has exceeded my expectations. It's a winner in my book.

The Saturn SD470 is worth every penny. The size of the boat is a clear advantage when navigating open water, and I've found that the extra space is indeed better to have. It offers a great deal of comfort even when loaded with 5-6 people, making it an ideal choice for larger groups.
