Welcome, all to our all-new Saturn Inflatable Kayak Review. In this Saturn Inflatable Kayak Review, you will get to know all about Saturn inflatable kayak.
Bird’s Eye View:
Carrying the Saturn Fishing Kayak or Saturn Fishing Boat is very easy for a single person, this kayak inflates or deflates within 5 minutes, and after deflation, you can store this kayak in the included carrying bag with rough dimensions of 45″x28″x12″. This Saturn inflatable kayak is the most versatile inflatable kayak for fishing on the market today.
The all-new “X” version from our standard FK396 features an extra thicker black PVC layer (over 70% thicker) which will cover the bottom surface of the kayak and also adds a second layer to safeguard the outer tube chambers on the bottom surface.
This upgraded version features the best inflation valves in the world in the Leafield C7 model that has the assurance of maximum pressure rating in all chambers. These types of upgrades provide a piece of mind knowing you have the highest quality and value ratio on the inflatable kayak market.
This kayak is a must for any RVer or camper where a fishing craft with maximum portability is very critical.
This kayak is solidly made with the same heavy-duty 1100 Dtex PVC having a double thickness on the bottom surface area like other Saturn inflatable boats, and the drop-stitch high-pressure air deck floor is one of the most rigid inflatable levels on the inflatable kayak market.
The story is made to support up to 3 adults (even though that would be a tight squeeze). The manufacturer has applied a double layer of PVC fabric on the bottom of the air floor and the bottom of the tubes.
There is an extra layer in between the aluminium bench seats is also available in this kayak. Our rigid high buoyancy tubes with the customized floor also make the Saturn FK396X kayak so stable, that one can stand up and fish if needed.
In this Saturn Inflatable Kayak review, you will get to know that The 13′ Saturn Fishing Kayak comes with two detachable aluminium benches which can be used for mounting different required hardware, for instance, rod holders, GPS units, video cameras, dive flags, anchor mounts, and even a fish finder.
Things that make this kayak so unique is that you can use it in a multitude of ways. This kayak has facilities available for you to sit directly on the included aluminium benches so that you can paddle using kayak paddles or if you want you can remove the seats and install custom high-back kayak seats for full back support.
The replacement of the rear aluminium bench with a more extended version is possible as the addition of a vertical plate for an optional electric motor.
The Saturn inflatable fishing kayak is a breeze to paddle due to its narrow profile and high buoyancy outer tubes as well as rigid drop stitch floor.
Kindly note that this is not a self-bailer kayak. This kayak was only designed for lakes, ponds, flatwater rivers, oceans, and bays.
If you are looking for this specific model and need it to become a self-bailing unit, you can also cut out 4 to 6 self-bailing holes in the kayak bottom so that it lets excess water pass.
However, that option will allow the pool to be entirely above the kayak floor, and this depends on the weight capacity, and this is indeed not advised because the repair time is lengthy.
