13' Extra Heavy-Duty Expedition Inflatable KaBoat™ SK385XL

What is 13-feet Inflatable KaBoat SK385XL Designed for?

The key words in the name of this inflatable KaBoat are “extra heavy-duty expedition”. The name also says what this inflatable watercraft is design for. The model belongs to the “Wilderness” series.

The 13-feet long inflatable KaBoats SK385XL are especially made for rugged boating conditions - hunting and fishing trips, Canadian wilderness adventures, camping on the remote islands, and expeditions of any kind. Its large 16" diameter tubes provide higher buoyancy and its spacious interior has weight capacity of 900lbs (408kg) and can carry 2 people and cargo.

This SK385XL KaBoat is made of a high quality reinforced heavy-duty 1100 Denier PVC fabric with extra thick bottom. Also, the extra heavy duty rub strake protectors are installed along both sides of the tubes for the maximum durability. When the kaboat is properly inflated, its tubes and high-pressure air deck floor are rock-solid. The safety valve prevents excessive air pressure in the boat chambers. The KaBoat has 4 separate air chambers for extra safety and even if one of the chambers deflates, the inflatable vessel will still be operational. The SK385XL model is lighter and smaller than a similar type SK470XL and can be easier handled by one person. The KaBoat can carry up to a 10 HP gas motor. Two sets of rowing oars, hand pump and repair kit will give you peace of mind and make your expedition safe.

This KaBoat is to inflate, deflate and fold. When packed, the KaBoat fits into a medium size bag that can be stored in the trunk of your car or in a closet of your apartment. All these premium features make the SK385XL inflatable KaBoat durable and reliable, just perfect for remote explorations.

Premium Features of SK385XL Inflatable KaBoat:

  • Extra thick 1.5mm PVC bottom, compare to standard 0.9mm PVC on other KaBoats.
  • Bottom of tubes overlapped with additional layer of PVC up to the rub strake protectors.
  • The safety air valves prevent excessive air pressure in the boat chambers. They have been moved toward the inside of boat's tubes and away from direct exposure to the weather elements. This allows easier inflation from inside the boat and minimizes damage caused by sun and rain while the boat is stored uncovered for prolonged periods of time. Rain water does not accumulate inside the valves.

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.

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.

I have just returned from northern Quebec where we used this boat and motor for the first time. We are impressed with the boat! Enjoyed it for 2 week vacation! Great buy!

All the best,
