15' Extra Heavy-Duty Expedition Inflatable KaBoat™ SK470XL

What is 15-feet Saturn Inflatable KaBoat SK470XL Designed for?

This model is one of the best Saturn inflatable KaBoats. It is safe, durable and reliable – perfect for rugged and/or shallow waters, fishing or hunting away from civilization, remote expeditions in the Canadian wilderness or as a heavy-duty work boat. Due to it is very easy to paddle it can be used as a regular kayak. But it also can carry an outboard 10HP 4-stroke or 15HP 2-stroke gas engine. If you get tired of rowing you can turn the motor on and fly at 15-20 mph!

Like all other inflatable KaBoats, the SK470XL model is made of a premium quality reinforced heavy-duty 1100 Denier PVC material. Extra heavy-duty rub strake protectors are installed along both sides of the tubes for maximum durability.

The extra oversized 16" diameter tubes and spacious interior provide the SK470XL KaBoat with higher buoyancy for more cargo and passengers: its weight capacity is 1,000lbs (454kg) and it can comfortably carry 3 people.

The SK470XL KaBoat model has 4 separate air chambers for extra safety. It is equipped with 2 sets of oarlocks, 2 sets of rowing oars, 3 lightweight aluminum removable benches, hand pump, repair kit, and carry bag.

It takes only 10 minutes to get the SK470XL KaBoat inflated! It is also easy to deflate it and fold. Since this model is very portable, you can put it in a medium size bag that fits your car trunk.

The SK470XL inflatable KaBoat is durable, reliable, lightweight, portable and affordable. An excellent option for an RV owner! A really great bargain!

Features that make 15-feet Extra Heavy-Duty Expedition Inflatable KaBoat SK470XL special

  • Extra thick 1.5mm PVC bottom, compare to standard 0.9mm PVC.
  • 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.
  • New model SK470XL have shorter and lighter aluminum seats, triangular splash guards over transom corner, and grommet splash strip with rope all along boat tubes.

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.

Bought a Kaboat 470XL this winter after much research. This is an impressive boat, especially for the money. I have a 6hp Yamaha four stroke for power on it. It is a long shaft motor as it is the kicker for my jet boat so I built a transom extender for the Kaboat. I raised the motor as high as I possibly could and added a hydrofoil. The result is I can run in 8'' of water with a prop driven boat. The boat itself drafts less than 2'' of water which is excellent for drifting shallow rivers. The boat does approx 20 km/h with the 6hp. I have also ran the boat on large lakes in 2 ft and larger waves. It is very stable and the raised bow rides up on the waves rather than spearing through. The rub strakes on the side are also excellent spray rails. It was a very dry ride in windy, rough water conditions.

The narrow width makes it excellent for navigating boulders as it can fit through chutes that large rafts of bigger jetboats cant fit through.

The extra layers on the bottom are very tough. It shows no signs of wear after dragging up onto many rocky shores and gravel beaches. These are excellent boats. The only extra you need is a vinyl or carpet cover over the airdeck floor to protect it from rock punctures.

Just got back from Parry Sound with the boat. The quality of the boat is first rate. Even my wife said she enjoyed going out in it much more than canoeing. I had my Honda 2hp on it. By myself, with no gear it will 'just' plane. With gear or 2 people, it will only go in displacement mode. I didn't get a speed on it. Coming around the tip of Killbear point the water was fairly rough with a 1-2ft swell and large wakes from many other boats. In my canoe it would have been very dangerous. In the Kaboat I was playing in the waves, surfing them. I feel 100% confident in this boat even crossing big water, it's that stable.

Not sure if I'll keep the 2HP Honda or move to a larger engine 5hp, or maybe 9.9. I may be going out again later this week and I'll try to take some video of the Georgian Bay Islands.

Thanks again Michael for your great service.
