12' Kayak & Inflatable Boat Crossover - SK396 KaBoat™

About KaBoats: A KaBoat is a hybrid, a crossover between an inflatable kayak and an inflatable boat. Inspired with a narrow profile of Asian Dragon boats, Saturn KaBoats take the best of both worlds to create a versatile inflatable dinghy with impressive performance. The KaBoat is a revolutionary invention in the inflatable watercraft industry.

Contrasting to kayaks, our inflatable KaBoat can take a motor and cut the water with a higher speed than other boats even with a less powerful engine. The KaBoat can be used as a kayak, or an inflatable boat capable of its own solo adventures, or as anything in between.

What is 12-feet Saturn Inflatable KaBoat SK396 Designed for?

Being extremely portable and lightweight, this KaBoat is an excellent inflatable vessel that can accompany you in your car trip, camping by the lake or discovering Canadian wilderness. This Saturn KaBoat is of premium quality equal to the other high end inflatable boats brands but much less expensive. Instead of renting a boat while traveling, you can take your KaBoat with you. It is easy to assemble and disassemble it or to inflate and deflate. When deflated and folded, the KaBoat fits into a medium size bag that can be easily stored in the trunk of your car or in a closet of your apartment.

The SK396 KaBoat is made of a heavy-duty reinforced 1100 Denier PVC fabric and has a high pressure air deck floor. It is a reliable and durable inflatable watercraft.

The stability-focused hull of this model delivers angler-tuned performance. It has enough room for storing your fishing essentials. It can be easily paddled through shallow waters where the big fish hides (and where other boats could not dream of reaching). The SK396 KaBoat is also great as a ship-to-shore yacht tender.

The SK396 KaBoat runs great with an inexpensive electric or small gas motor. With its narrow beam it would zip the water more efficiently than a full beam width inflatable boat. If you are prepared for something full of adrenalin, you will definitely get it with your KaBoat.

If you set the throttle to the 1st speed setting, an electric engine can run about 12 hours (depending on the battery size). The SK396 KaBoat with an electric engine is ecologically friendly and environmentally clean: it is a real "Green" boat. Powerful 55Lbs short-shaft foldable electric trolling motors are available in our Accessories.

Our Accessories will make your water adventure more comfortable:

  • You can easily turn your KaBoat into a sailboat by using a portable sail kit.
  • You can install a canopy top to protect yourself from the summer sun or light rain.
  • You can buy an inexpensive cart to carry your deflated and folded KaBoat.
  • You can purchase an inflatable boat swimming ladder, which is foldable, lightweight and very useful.
  • You can inflate your KaBoat with an inexpensive electric pump in no time.

Our great selection of KaBoats guarantees an unforgettable adventure out on the water. No matter if you want to catch a monster fish or to explore new waters, there is a KaBoat waiting for you to take out.

KaBoats advantages over conventional inflatable boats and kayaks

  • The appeal of our inflatable KaBoats is their portability: they can be deflated and folded for easy storage and transportation. Made of plastic or fiberglass, conventional "recreational” kayaks are approximately from 9 feet (2.7m) to 12 feet (3.7m) long. They require significant storage space and special means of transportation.
  • Kayaks can be only paddled, but the KaBoat allows you to use a small gas or electric motor to cover larger distances.
  • Although at the price of reduced speed, the KaBoat’s inflatable tubes and a special hull design provide much higher buoyancy, stability and safety. In contrast to regular kayaks, you can stand or even walk inside the KaBoat.
  • The KaBoats offer multiple functionality and can be used for water activities that require carrying much cargo, such as a fishing trip, diving event or summer vacations.
  • Due to a stability-focused hull volume (weight capacity), our KaBoats can transport a much larger cargo than regular kayaks. They deliver ample storage for your fishing essentials, things for overnight trips and other cargo that you need to carry with you.
  • Contrasting to traditional kayaks, our inflatable KaBoats make getting in and out a breeze. Also, they are much more convenient for putting in and taking out your cargo.
  • The KaBoat’s paddling ease and ergonomics are boater-tuned. They are contoured to fight fatigue. Although a narrower kayak puts less strain on the shoulder joints, a KaBoat offer a freedom of movements allowing you to stay comfortable on long rides.
  • A KaBoat allows you to go to narrow or shallow places where regular inflatable boats will not fit. If a motor is installed, simply raise it and paddle anywhere that is at least 5" (13cm) deep.
  • Due to its smaller chambers, it is much easier and faster to inflate a KaBoat than a regular inflatable boat.
  • In contrast to regular inflatable boats, the KaBoat’s narrow profile and a much lower drag can go much faster than a wider conventional boat with the same rated engine.
  • KaBoats can also be used as an inflatable dinghy to a yacht or sailboat, but take up much less space when deflated and folded.
  • Last but not least: KaBoats are more affordable – they cost much less than inflatable boats.


  • Transoms now have triangular splash guards to minimize back splash and protect the transom holders from heat and exposure to UV rays
  • Bulky plastic handles on end tubes were replaced with sun resistant and durable soft handles for longer life span
  • New models have different bench attachments to make them shorter, lighter and move slightly lower for easier rowing
  • Grommet PVC splash guards with safety grab lines run all along the KaBoat's tubes from the front to the rear. Having grommets on PVC lines allows the attachment of additional accessories, kayak seats and custom made frames and arches for rod holders, night lights, etc.
  • Heavy-duty 1100 Denier PVC
  • Wide beam hull design for stability. You can stand in a KaBoat
  • Front Spray Skirt with water deflector guard and rope lacing
  • Marine grade plywood transom with a one way drain plug
  • High-pressure inflatable air deck floor
  • Four fins for improved tracking
  • 1 set of rowing oars with oar locks
  • Set of rowing oars with oarlocks
  • 2 aluminum removable benches


  • High-volume hand pump
  • Repair kit
