Combining a narrow streamline frame more like that of a kayak or small skiff, with stability more like that of a conventional inflatable boat, the 12' Inflatable Saturn boat (KaBoat SK396) is nimble and efficient in the water. Unlike kayaks it provides a stable platform for general boating purposes, or for casting, even while standing. It is a great way to navigate small rivers, streams, and narrow canyons, and it can also perform well as a dinghy or tender for a larger boat.
This Saturn inflatable boat features a 14-inch wide interior with a removable, high-pressure floor, and it can be fitted with an optional outboard engine of up to 2.5 HP or an electric trolling motor. At only 48 pounds and a packing size of 34 by 21 by 10 inches, it can easily be stored in a closet and taken along in a car or SUV for a quick weekend trip. It can handle up to 500 pounds, including two occupants and gear, and it includes two oars, oar locks, bench seats, and a repair kit.
