THE ALL NEW 2020 12'6" SATURN SOLOQUEST (TRITON SERIES) WHITEWATER RAFT IS COMPLETE AND WE ARE NOW TAKING PRE-ORDERS FOR THE JULY SHIPMENT
This has been our most popular raft since 2016 and our new 2020 version is made even better with the new Triton series upgrades ($400 value) including heat welded seams, reinforced carrying handles, multi-point detachable floor (see manufacturing photo below), 1.2mm 5-layer material dropstitch Outfitter floor (rated over 10 psi), beefed up 16" diameter tubes, added D-rings for custom framing, added 2 interior pressure relief valves, and moved the Leafield C7 valves to the exterior tubes for improved ability to utilize with a full frame setup.
The reviews from our fishing guides, customers, and outfitters for this product have been greater than any product we've prototyped before. It's an incredibly customized fishing machine and the new self-bailing floor makes it capable of running Class IV whitewater. There simply isn't anything like it and the custom features come at an incredible introductory value through the summer of 2019. We had three production orders in 2018 and they each sold out before we were even able to produce the retail product page, it's that POPULAR. We have never created a product that has generated so much buzz in the rafting/fishing community and we can't wait to see what the new 2020 model brings. There simply isn't a better combination fishing/whitewater machine on the market, regardless of price.
If you are looking for the smallest whitewater raft that with a self-bailing floor and capability to comfortably hold 3 adults, you've found the perfect product. The overall weight is under 85 lbs and the raft rolls up easily into a compact 40"x24"x12" (or 24"x24"x24") space. The 12'6" length, 56" width, 6" thick inflatable dropstitch Outfitter floor, 16" tube diameters, 4 exterior tube chambers, Leafield C7 valves, and 1.5mm extra thick bottom floor covering (wraps 1/2 way up the side tubes for additional protection) are just a few of the customized features allowing this raft to do many things others cannot.
The 12'6" Saturn Soloquest (Triton Series) Raft was specifically designed for boaters who venture out to battle the toughest river conditions with the courage to take on new river sections, spring/fall water levels, and rocky shallow conditions. The long waterlines, extremely rigid self bailing drop-stitch air floor, large tube diameters and increased width provide added stability and comfort in tight conditions.
The 12'6" Saturn Soloquest (Triton Series) Raft includes a floor which provides 70% more protection for the entire bottom surface of the raft. The revised floor design provides over 2.4mm of protection where you need it. The 5-layer PVC floor provides a significantly stronger surface when slamming around in the rocky conditions. You can target those bows, cuts, browns and smallies without having to worry about avoiding all rock and debris.
The 12'6" Saturn Soloquest (Triton Series) Raft now comes standard with 2 removable thwarts, exterior D-rings, 4 carrying handles, chaffing protection on the top sides and rear of the exterior tubes, 1 repair kit, carrying bag and our standard 3 year warranty.

CUSTOM ROWING FRAME OPTIONS (DISCOUNTED THROUGH SATURN RAFTS)
This is a unique product that can cover all sorts of uses and many of our customers are looking for a very narrow raft option that can handle tightly constrained rivers as seen in the picture above on a successful moose hunt in Alaska (the pictures shows our standard 12' Saturn Raft/Kayak which is a similar product but without all of the upgrades shown above). Many of our customers have begun using it with a rowing frame and we have provided several custom NRS rowing frames to suite their needs. The most popular frame we have customized is a modified two (or 3) seat fishing frame which is shown in the pictures below on the 2019 12'6" Saturn Whitewater Raft. It's a truly awesome setup and with a package price (including Raft and Frame) just over $3,400 it's an incredible value.
A video of this frame setup was also submitted on YouTube and can be seen here.

- (2) 88" Side Rails with LoPro's
- (5) 39 3/8" Customized Cross Bars with LoPro's
