help with raft id manufacturer/model?

I am looking for some help to identify the two rafts in the picture below.
Does anyone know who manufacturers them? and what specific models they each are?

I don't want this thread to turn into a a glued PVC vs. welded PVC debate....or USA built vs Import build... as that all has been covered at length before...

I'm just looking for who makes these rafts...and who sells these rafts (without frames) in the USA.

Thanks in advance...

The specs listed below for each raft came from a re-seller who packages each raft with a frame but only sells a full package

My gut says Saturn... but my gut could be wrong.

Shape is right for a Saturn, Flycraft has a pointy bow and stern.

Flycraft doesn't offer a raft this size. The raft Flycraft advertises is 12'6' 46''

Great, we now know what it's not. Same principle different size. An Aire SDP would be similar but with larger tubes.

Who is the re-seller? I searched and could not find any manufacturer with those sizes.
But Saturn is the most likely suspect.

The shape says Saturn. But I can't find anything online about a boat with those lengths, narrow width, tubes that small, and the double handles on the bow (and I assume the stern as well) Totally stumped.

In 2013 at the Outdoor Retail show in SLC, the Flycraft boats were made in the Saturn factory. Flycraft was looking for alternative manufactures at the show. No idea who manufactures the brand now.
