9'6" Saturn Inflatable Boat

What is the 9.6-feet SD290 Saturn Inflatable Boat Designed for?

The 9.6’ SD290 SATURN inflatable boat can carry up to 4 people. This inflatable dinghy comes standard with a high-pressure drop stitch air deck floor that can take up to 9 psi of air pressure. The air floor does not add weight to the boat because it is a self-contained flat tube that is inflated just like the large side tubes. It is made of a very tough innovative material - heavy-duty 1100 denier Korean PVC fabric with polyester support. This material not only provides excellent resistance to tearing, tension and breaking, but also makes the floor rigid enough to stand on when it is properly inflated.

A powerful short shaft outboard motor up to 10 HP can be installed on the SD290 SATURN inflatable boat to make the boat fly over the water at a speed of 20 mph.

This inflatable boat model is designed for:

  • great boating adventures for a family or a small group of friends
  • transporting you and your things to a campsite in a natural park
  • fishing, especially fly fishing, due to it is possible to stand on the high-pressure air floor just the same way you would stand on a plywood floor.
  • discovering the Canadian wilderness
  • nature lovers and photographers
  • pleasure cruising and rowing on weekends
  • romantic escape on a lake island for two

The SD290 SATURN model can be used as a ship-to-shore yacht tender, or an inflatable dinghy capable of its own solo adventures, or as anything in between. It is a reliable watercraft that an experienced RV or yacht owner can own.

Advantages of the 9.6' SD290 Saturn Inflatable Boat

  • Like any other inflatable boat from the Saturn family, the SD290 model has excellent resistance to tearing, tension and breaking because it’s made of 1100 denier Korean PVC fabric with polyester support - a much more heavy-duty PVC fabric, whereas most of our competitors have 1000 denier PVC boats.
  • The Saturn SD290 inflatable boat has a high-pressure (up to 9 psi) drop stitch air deck floor which is extremely rigid once properly inflated. The high-pressure air floors have great advantages: they make inflatable boats much lighter, much easier to assemble and disassemble and more compact when deflated.
  • Double layers of fabric at the bottom of the tubes and rub-strake protector along the keel provide extra protection from sharp rocks and abrasive sand.
  • The safety valve prevents excessive air pressure in the boat chambers.
  • This inflatable boat runs nicely with an electric trolling motor and can also take up to a 10 HP short shaft motor.
  • SD290 Saturn inflatable boat is easy to assemble and disassemble, to inflate and deflate. To inflate the boat, simply unroll it and pump in air with the included hand pump or optional electric air inflator. To deflate the boat, you have to open all air valves and start rolling the boat from the transom, or quickly suck all air out with an electric pump. Click to see how to deflate and fold your inflatable boat.
  • A bag with deflated boat can be easily carried around with an inexpensive foldable hand cart.
  • An Inflated boat can be easily transported with help of our removable dinghy wheels that are attached to the transom.
  • Deflated and folded, the SD290 boat is of a medium size bag that can be easily stored in the trunk of your car or in a closet of your apartment.
New air valves improve 9.6' SD290 Saturn inflatable boats durability and practicality:

Air valves 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.

Great Boat From All Reviews! Although Evan on the 50% off special it's slightly out of my range I need something preferably a SD365 for about $800AUD. but overall great product and if the opportunity comes I'll take one!!!
Extremely satisfied with this model SD290. Easy to assemble and looks great. Equal or better construction than the brand name inflatables.
