The new upgraded 2023 model is now in stock in limited quantities and more will be arriving soon.

This Triton Series option is listed under the "Model" selection.
If cruising the open ocean or day trips are your thing, this should be your boat. The 13' Saturn Dinghy Tender is our largest Saturn inflatable boat available with the new inflatable floor and it was designed for all types of boating pleasure. Tough, durable, lightweight and stable; this boat is ideal for all types of activities including cruising, diving, fishing and enjoying our beautiful oceans, lakes and rivers. All models now come standard with the upgraded high pressure dropstitch inflatable floor (rating over 8 psi). This is the largest model boat we make before the floor construction shifts to a sectional hard bottom floor.
With its’ simple setup, the 13' Saturn Dinghy Tender can have you and your family on the water in minutes. Extremely easy maneuvering makes this the perfect boat for almost every situation. The size is perfect for the roof of your RV or the platform of your yacht. It breaks down in seconds and can be easily stored in your SUV or truck. The 13' Saturn Dinghy Tender with the dropstitch inflatable air floor makes portability much easier and cuts the setup and takedown time in half.
The 13' Saturn Dinghy Tender can handle up to 6 persons and comfortably seats 4 adults. It supports an outboard motor of up to 30 HP but will plane and manage effectively with a 15 HP motor. Even with a 9.9 HP outboard motor and 2 people this boat can plane easily.
The 13' Saturn Dinghy Tender is made with our standard 1,100 Dtex PVC with a high density polyester fabric. It has excellent resistance to tearing, tension, abrasion and puncture. The heavy-duty outer PVC layer helps protect against UV rays, ozone and abrasion while the inner layers provide additional strength and support. The 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 pressure relief valve will prevent excessive air pressure in the boats chambers.
One optional accessory is a central console which can be installed directly on the hard floor to provide comfortable seating and easy means of navigation.

|"I used this boat for fishing and taking boat rides around the local lakes and rivers. The 9.8hp motor is powerful enough to get the boat up on a plane with two guys and a day's worth of gear in the boat. With 5 people in the boat things get a little crowded for fishing, but there's still enough room to move around. The wide tubes and hard floor make the boat incredibly stable. You can stand up in it without making it rock, and the boat has handled some big waves (across the middle of Smith Mountain Lake in VA) with no problems. The best thing about this boat is how easy it is to transport and store. The boat and motor fit in a small pickup, and would fit in the back of a large SUV too."

"Well first off let me just say that I live in Oregon and I love your boats! When I received my new boat I went through the steps to put it all together, all was very easy and it looks and performs as stated. I was happy to see very clean glue lines and overall quality of my new SD385. I power it with a mercury 9.9 and it planes very well in light chop with four people in it, With two it just fly across the water! I will buy a Saturn again and also highly recommend these boats to anyone looking for a well made inflatable boat that can take a beating. Thanks to boatstogo I am a proud owner of a very fun boat and shipping was easy and fast." Darren
"Thanks so much for your diligence and your teams efforts in shipping my raft out so quickly sir! Got it today and immediately pumped it up to make sure all is well - so far so good! You were right when you said your rafts are derived from high quality, craftsmen! Seams look strong and overall boat looks great! Will advise w/ photo's as promised. Cheers and happy selling to you and the entire Saturn Team! Bob, California
