The 9’6” Saturn Inflatable Boat is an excellent tender boat for a yacht or sailboat. It is also a perfect life raft that can be easily stowed in a small area the size of a large suitcase. Its’ size also makes it perfect for 2-3 passengers looking to get from point A to B and has been a HUGE hit with RV-ers looking for a reliable craft to use on both lakes and seas. This boat is lightweight and can easily be carried by a single person making it perfect for a picnic with a wife/child or to get out and do some fishing when you’re on vacation. A small electric motor can quickly move you around the lake while a 9.9 HP outboard can plane this boat in an instant.

Tough, durable, lightweight and stable the 9’6” Saturn Inflatable Boat is ideal for all types of lake activities including cruising, picnicking, fishing and sunbathing. The high-pressure air floor is sturdy and makes a perfect platform to stand and fish.

With its’ simple setup, the 9’6” Saturn Dinghy takes just minutes to inflate and carry on your back down to the lake. It breaks down into a perfect size to fit in the trunk and takes up very little space in your RV. Fully inflated, the size is perfect for the roof of your car or truck. Without the need for a trailer your family will love the ability to take it with you on your vacation.

The 9’6” Saturn Inflatable Boat can handle up to 4 persons and comfortably seats 2 adults and 1 child. It supports an outboard motor of up to 10 HP (short shaft) but will manage effectively with an electric trolling motor

Value, durability, and quality
Hey Steve,

Thanks again for your help in locating a replacement plug for our Saturn Triton TR290 we bought from you folks back in January 2022.

It's been quite the dingy in terms of robustness and utility here in the super tough climate conditions in the Florida Keys. If a dingy can make it here, it's probably well suited for the other customers including the Navy Seals.

Trust me when I say it hasn't been pampered but used like it's suppose to --- as a companion vehicle and "your trusted buddy" to get you to and from your vehicle when anchored --- especially when the weather is turning against you quickly.

We've had several other dingy's, but they didn't survive the elements, and in one case the dingy just suddenly "disassembled itself" in the water with us almost losing the outboard motor too. The root cause appeared to be the material was glued together, as opposed to being welded like the TR290.

So the TR290 appears to be a big time winner and game changer for you Saturn --- congrats!!

We sure did have a great summer and having the Saturn inflatable along made for several EPIC trips! The pack trip to the Cloud Peak reservoir was accomplished with pack horses and we base camped at an elevation of 9,800 feet. Having the inflatable allowed us to not only explore the Cloud Peak reservoir but it also allowed us to access a very remote camping spot nearly inaccessible by foot but was easily reached by boat.

Thanks for a great product.

I’ve attached two pictures of our Saturn raft which were taken this year during two of our camping trips. The first picture (with the boat sitting next to the shoreline) was taken in MT on Hyalite Reservoir. The second picture (with me sitting in the boat holding the outboard motor’s tiller) was taken during a horse pack trip in WY on Cloud Peak Reservoir.

We have been very pleased with the Saturn and we look forward to many more years of use.
