The new 2023 model with our "Triton" series improvements (optional) are finally in stock. The Triton Series upgrades represent over $350 additional value and include; upgraded PVC construction ($75 value), heat-welded seam technology ($150 value), Leafield D7 inflation valves ($50 value), and an extended 3-year warranty ($100 value). The boat technical specifications are nearly identical between the Triton model (TRFK396) and our standard version (FK396). These Triton series improvements incorporate the newest technologies in inflatable boat construction and provide an incredible value for those looking to put their kayak to the test. Our 13' Saturn Fishing Kayak is easy to carry by a single person, inflates/deflates in under 5 minutes, stores in the included storage bag with rough dimensions of 45"x28"x12", and is the most versatile inflatable fishing kayak on the market today. This kayak is the Swiss Army Knife of inflatable fishing kayaks and to make it even better the new 2022 version includes extra thicker black PVC bottom skin layer (1.5mm PVC with is over 70% thicker than our 0.9mm PVC tube material) which covers the full bottom surface of the kayak and adds a second layer to protect the exterior tube chambers.
This upgraded version also includes upgraded inflation valves to ensure durability and the maximum pressure rating in all chambers. These upgrades provide piece of mind knowing you have the highest quality / value ratio on the inflatable kayak market. This kayak is an absolute must for any RVer or camper where a fishing craft with maximum portability is critical. This is the kayak to own when you want to escape the pandemic and hit the water.
This kayak is made of the same heavy-duty 1100 Dtex PVC (double thickness on the bottom surface area) as many of our other Saturn inflatable boats and the drop-stitch high-pressure airdeck floor is the most rigid inflatable floor on the inflatable kayak market. The floor is made to support up to 3 adults (even though that would be a tight squeeze). A double layer of PVC fabric is applied to the bottom and an extra layer has been added to the high contact areas of the top tubes between the aluminum bench seats. Our rigid high buoyancy tubes and customized floor make the Saturn TRFK396 kayak so stable, that you can stand up and fish if needed (see the photos of our customers doing just that).
The 13' Saturn Fishing Kayak comes with 2 removable aluminum benches that can be used for mounting various hardware, such as rod holders, GPS units, video cameras, dive flags, anchor mounts, and even a fish finder. Check our our customer photos and videos showing many of their innovative ideas! If you want even more space and the capability to comfortably accommodate 3 adults you might want to consider our stretched out 14' TRFK430 Fishing Kayak. What makes our inflatable fishing kayaks so unique, is the multitude of ways they can be used. You can sit directly on the aluminum benches to paddle using the included kayak paddle or you can remove the seats and install our custom high-back kayak seats for full back support. It is also possible to replace the rear aluminum bench with a longer version and add a vertical plate for an optional electric motor.
The 13' Saturn TRFK396 fishing inflatable kayak is a breeze to paddle due to its narrow profile, high buoyancy exterior tubes, and rigid drop stitch floor. Please note that this kayak is not a self-bailer. It was designed for lakes, ponds, flatwater rivers, oceans and bays. If you are looking for a self-bailing kayak, no need to look any further than our 13' Saturn Whitewater Kayak. If you want this specific model and absolutely need it to be a self-bailing unit you can cut out 4-6 self bailing holes in the kayak bottom to let excess water escape. However, that option may allow water to entire above the kayak floor depending on the weight capacity and is really not advised because the repair time if you are unsatisfied is lengthy.

"I am all the way in East Africa, and I am crazy about fishing. I bought the kayak via a mutual friend from the US after I saw his boat. Throughout my life I've had lots of deferent boats, but man this is a nice boat. I am using the boat in Kenya great lakes like Lake Victoria. I intend to use it also at the coast for fishing on the reefs." Marius, Kenya
"16 months ago I purchased three kayaks - 2 FK396 and 1 SK470. Soon thereafter they were put to use. My wife and I, several of our friends, and grandchildren have paddled the boats on the Great Lakes, inland lakes and rivers in Michigan, and the Intercostals as well as rivers on the Gulf Coast of Florida. I know we have 150+ miles and many hours of paddling the boats with no problems and lots of fun times.."
"I wanted to write a quick letter describing my experience with the FK396 fishing inflatable kayak that I purchased last June. We have been using an inflatable kayak for the last four years. We purchased a Sea Eagle 330 to take with us in our fifth wheel trailer as we traveled full time around the country for approximately three years. Although the Sea Eagle did a satisfactory job most of the time, we found it wanting in several areas. I like to fish in everything from small rivers and ponds to large lakes and even inshore ocean bays. I was looking for a heavy duty inflatable that I could easily mount fishing accessories to and even possibly a trolling motor. My search took me to the website where I found just what I was looking for. I must admit I was extremely skeptical when I saw the low price on what seemed to be a very high quality boat. I had seen similar boats advertised for at least twice the price but the specifications and the reviews I read convinced me to give the FK396 a try..."
