Question about Zodiac Futura Alu. Floors

I have an older (1998) Zodiac Futura MK2 with an aluminum floor. I bought it with the seating/console package that attaches to the aluminum rails on the sides of the floor.

The boat has recently started to fall apart at the seams/transom and I am considering replacing it with a new Futura. Does anyone know if the old console/seat is compatible with the rails on a new boat? Also, I assume that the MK2 and the MK3 use the same console/seats?

Thanks in advance if anyone can help out! I plan on getting up to the Inflatable Boat Center soon, but I was hoping someone on this forum might have done something like this.

Yes they will fit the newer boats.

Chris nailed it!

The oldschool Z1255 bench on rail system is still the same.

Best of all, it is compatible with the MKIII as well if you want to go up a size?

Thanks for the replies!

The only problem now would be the transom - the old Futuras used a short shaft (my motor is a 25 HP Mercury "Bigfoot" short shaft) so I would have to notch out the transom.

My wife has been talking about Boston Whalers, so I'm not sure if I am going to get a new hull or just sell off my Zodiac and go for a BW. It is kind of hard, I've had my Zodiac for 17 years and it was the first really cool adult toy I ever bought...
