Not really. Bench bags exist but are probably more expensive Under seat storage bags and seat cushions for inflatable boats benches

I think I've seen transom bags on here too but it may have been a home design.

Use a Pelicase, much more useful and will take the anchor etc. Make great seats too. Combine with dry bag if needed for lightweight stuff.

What kit do you carry on your SIB?

Can put just anything that's properly suited to go up front like a canvas, hard plastic bag, can tied it to front life line if your sib happens to count with one, or you could glue a small D'ring at bow tube and hang it there.

Happy Boating

My bow holds my anchor crate, but when we need bags we have a couple of dry bags that get clipped into the boat, and stored by the anchor crate.

I got a bow bag. Bad design. It hanged up&down in choppy seas, hitting the bow floor. Finally it cracked on the eyelets: it was not a heavy canvas, just a PVC cloth.

Homemade cargo net, as thick as you like.
Homemade bow canvas on top.
Rubber bucket for anchor.
Dry bag is also a must. My boat is moored at 200m from beach...

Underseat sunsport bag is what I use - Ebay should find you a bargain.

The best solution I've found is elasticated Cargo nets.I use them to secure even LARGE and awkward amounts of Kit in the Bow...and behind the rear seats,secured with proper Marine a Grade 'Pad eyes'screwed into the Deck you can carry 'LOADS'! And very securely!.....even in Really Bad weather
You can pick them up pretty cheaply at Holfords...
