Whether you’re just looking to sit back and relax, add temporary seat space, or enjoy a more comfortable perch during those long hours fishing, seating options exist to match or even upgrade the looks and versatility of your boat. Here are three to consider…
The Classic Back-to-Back Lounger
Boat designers have used the versatile back-to-back lounge seat for decades. It seats two passengers in relatively minimal floor space, provides a backward-facing seat for a spotter when towing skiers and board riders, folds completely flat to form a sun lounge, and even offers storage below. A quadruple threat.
Folding deck chairs are the perfect addition to many boats, whether they’re used to add temporary passenger seating to a center console fish boat during a family outing or give anglers a place to sit on a pontoon deck. Look for anodized aluminum frames that resist corrosion, molded plastic seat frames, and marine-grade, UV and mildew-protected vinyl over high-compression foam padding for comfort and long life.
Pedestal Mount Low-Back Fish Seat
Low-back, pedestal-mount seats are a favorite fishing perch, offering much needed lower-back support during long hours on the water and folding flat when not in use so as not to obstruct the driver’s forward view. Look for the proper fasteners to secure the seat to most standard, four-bolt pedestal systems.
