Saturn is the bottom of the barrel. Resale of cheap boats sucks, but the resale of good boats often bring more than 60% of the original price. Something to think about. I would feel weird spending more on a frame than a boat.

outlaw is an okay boat. some who have them like them, others wish they had gone with another boat. (but that can be said about any boat) but I believe the outlaw is way better than a saturn. but really you're comparing is like a hyundai vs. kia - really you should compare a kia vs. honda and choose the honda and maybe skip on the lexus due to budget restrictions.

Best budget boat would be Rocky Mountain Rafts IMHO. Or look for a used Aire, Maravia, etc.

Go with the Outlaw! My good friend has one and loves it. It's not as sleek as my Aire and the floor can be tricky if you run really silty and muddy rivers, other than that it's tough to beat for a beginner raft. Float that thing for five years and if you're still super stoked and use it a lot, you'll still be able to sell it for 70% of MSRP and upgrade to what you will want precisely. It takes a while to find your passion, even in this sport.
