16' Saturn Inflatable Boat

What is the 16-feet SD488 Saturn Inflatable Boat Designed for?

The name of the SD488 model speaks for itself - Fire Rescue Saturn Inflatable Boat. It is a large heavy-duty inflatable workboat, which is made of a premium quality 1,100 Dtex heavy-duty reinforced PVC fabric. This innovative material provides the boat with excellent resistance to tearing, tension and breaking improving its durability and practicality.

Double layers of fabric at the bottom of the tubes and a rub-strake protector along the keel provide extra protection from sharp rocks and abrasive sand. The 5-layer thick construction's outer layer protects the boat against UV rays, ozone and abrasion, and inner layers provide perfect strength and adhesion.

This inflatable watercraft is equipped with 1 set rowing oars, 4 aluminum bench seats, soft carry handles and 4 D-ring cargo attachment points. The SD488 can carry up to 8 people and/or heavy cargo and has maximum load capacity of 2000 lb.

The 16-feet SD488 Saturn fire rescue motor boat has a sectional aluminum floor. The bow section is made of a marine grade plywood floor covered with a gray resin. To know more about aluminum floor installation, please click here.

The boat takes up to a maximum 40 HP outboard motor, but can plane nice and easy with a less powerful engine. Despite being large and heavy, it is also easy to paddle.

Wherever you need to go on the water that requires carrying cargo and transporting people, the 16' Saturn inflatable boat is the one that fits perfectly to the purpose.
