Fishing boat skippers spend very long hours at the helm, often in extremely bad weather. Crown Marine Seats, a UK-based supplier of premium boat seating, and SHOXS have introduced a seating solution to keep skippers safe and comfortable in rough seas. A unique combination of a RECARO luxury skipper seat and a SHOXS X8 shock mitigating pedestal results in a seat built for fishermen or anyone who spends long days on the water, complete with sporty, dynamic design, outstanding ergonomics, and the latest marine shock-mitigation technology.
The seat, a RECARO Maritime Northsea, has an integrated headrest, an adjustable backrest and lumbar support, and can be mounted on a shock mitigating pedestal with 8" of suspension travel and height adjustment to ensure optimal sightlines at the helm, no matter the size of the occupant. The seat is available in leather or fabric, with or without a four-point belt. The X8 pedestal is crafted from anodized aluminum, and is designed with no pinch points.
