The new 2022 model with our "Triton" series improvements (optional) are in stock in limited quantities, more arriving soon. The Triton Series upgrades represent over $400 additional value and include; upgraded PVC construction ($75 value), heat-welded seam technology ($150 value), Leafield D7 style inflation valves and Leafield PRV valve ($80 value), and an extended 3-year warranty ($100 value). The boat technical specifications are nearly identical between the Triton model (TRFB365) and our standard version (FB365). These Triton series improvements incorporate the newest technologies in inflatable boat construction and provide an incredible value for those looking to put their boat to the test. If available, this option will be listed under the "Model" selection.

The all new 2022 Saturn Inflatable Fishing Boat now includes 2 custom rod holders and connection attachments for a front bow motor mount (motor mount itself is sold separately and not included). This model was based on our popular FB300 boat but beefed up to provide space for more gear and passenger room. Our FB series boats were designed to take a serious beating to the top of and bottom of the exterior tubes. The tube construction is made from the same heavy-duty, commercial grade 1100 Denier PVC common to most of our other Saturn boats, but on top of that we added extra wide and extra thick rub protectors on the bottom of tubes, over keel, and on top of the boat tubes. It's like a Rhino liner for the high impact areas of your boat.

In addition, there is a 2nd layer of extra thick 1.5mm PVC glued along the bottom of the tubes, all the way up to rub strakes on side of tubes. And, whole vessel bottom is also made of extra heavy-duty 1.5mm PVC fabric. That is the most extra protection available for any inflatable 12' fishing boat on the market today!

It is well known that space inside inflatable boats is hard to come by and is almost always lacking. To address this issue we invented a new (patent pending) cargo lacing system on top of the tubes, providing more protection for getting in and out of the boat with sharp gear. This design provides an unmatched ability to store gear on the tubes rather than entirely within the confines of the boat hull.

The Saturn FB365 inflatable motor boat features two grommeted PVC strips that are shifted off center of tubes, leaving enough space to store cargo on top of tubes. Any type of gear can be strapped down using bungee cords, ropes, tied downs or straps. 

The Saturn FB365 is an extra heavy-duty inflatable boat, primarily designed for fishing. We even added a motor mount attachment point to the bow to accommodate an electric trolling motor when fishing. The motor mount itself can be purchased as a separate accessory and is suitable for up to a 55lbs electric trolling motor. In addition, two sockets for detachable fishing rod holders (2 rod holders are included in the 2022 model) were added on top of the tubes in the bow area. We simply left no stone unturned in our quest to make the most accommodating 12' inflatable fishing boat in the industry with additional upgrades that include a heavy-duty sectional aluminum floor, extra protection layers all over, numerous D-rings and grommets eyelets, and reinforced carrying handles. All of these features make the Saturn FB365 inflatable fishing boat an excellent choice for fishing, hunting, work, hauling, diving, pleasure cruising or as dinghy tender for yacht or sail boat.

After about a year and a half with the FB365 I've had plenty of time to get to know it and have come to really enjoy using it. Like with any inflatable, the setup and breakdown involves more physical work than you might think; there's much more to actually using an inflatable than just inflating and deflating it. This is a heavy duty boat and the thicker PVC layers make the setup and breakdown- right out of the box, at least - more physically demanding than some buyers would expect. But the process quickly becomes easier and faster with repetition as they get the steps down and the PVC has a chance to break in and become more pliant.

On the water it handles great with a 9.9 and tops out at about 20 mph with 2 adults and gear. I have had no problems with air leakage or water entry. I've used in the bays and inshore ocean, always felt very safe and have come to trust the boat. It's a little crowded with 2 guys fishing, but a very good solo platform.

My only suggestion to the manufacturer would be to mount the valves rotated so that the cap's retaining string doesn't lay over the valve opening when the cap is removed. Secondly I suggest Saturn consider including launching wheels as a standard accessory, having the btackets factory installed, thus saving the new owner from having to drill into his brand new transom.

So far so good. I am able to fit the boat, floor, and motor in the back of my Toyota Tacoma and have the bed cover down. I was a bit worried at first that the large size would make solo fishing trips difficult. However I am able to unload, inflate, and get in the water within 30mins (once I figured out the best way to do that. Which took about 3 uses.). I will say the bag they give you is more like a tarp with handles and do to the weight and bulk of all that "rubber" it is not a one man carry job. I would recommend one of those kayak wheel stands for it. I really helps cut down on wear and tear on solo fishing trips.
