Seatings

I have searched the net to find a seat similiar to pic without results.
The only difference from the seat on the pic is that the seat must be very strong and able to turn 180 degrees.
Anyone know any manufacturer in Europe?

Thanks Richard;

The seating on the pic is from Bolster, but cant find any that you can turn 180 degrees.

Hi, Petrov!
What do you need that sort of seat for, is it for a new rib? I have seen your rib for sale. I asume that you are going to bye something even more spectaculare this time. What have you ordered for this season?
By the way, I am planning to by a Ullmann suspention seat, do you have any experiense with them?
Best regards
Martin

Hi Martin,

Planing for something bigger, check my site and you will probably understand nothing is decided yet.
I have some experience of the Ullman seats and at some boats they been ok but some less good, not because of the seats more of how they was sitting compared to the console so an optimized seat for right console should be good.
The seats i am looking for is not for my boat (not charter/rafting) and i have some prob to find seats that can be turned 180 degrees, i have seen them before but offcourse when you need them you dont find them.
How are your plans going?

Petrov,

Have you had any experience with those bolster seats? Kris from Brugge Marine Center advised us those because itís a good compromise between standing, leaning and sitting.

Seaharrier, i dont have so much experience of them, but i know they are very well and Kris is right that they are a god seats for standing, leaning and sitting, after my small experience i can definetly recomend them.

Hi, Petrow!
I took a look at your website, I assume that the rib you are talking about is the Ring. It looks extreem, I like those steps in the hull, it must be fast!
Please enlight us a little, where is it made, prizes, what size, what engines and speed? Parhaps a 10.5 m. with twin 315hp diesel would do?
Martin

Not yet. I ordered the boat in the beginning of December. The hull should be ready in one or 2 weeks. The biggest delay comes from the seats. According to Bolsters it will take 7 weeks to make them and than 1 or 2 weeks for the transport.

According to Kris it will be ready somewhere around 15/03. Iím really looking forward. I hope that the Seaharrier is a good choice.

I have seen that 13m Ring with 4 x 250 HP. Itís really impressive! The fuel it burnís must be impressive too!

There was a falcon 8.2 m next too that Ring 13. The Falcon looked so small.

On of the options we ordered is a ballast tank and a shower unit. Will we still be able to use the ballast tank like on yours or wonít we be able to fill it with water while navigating due to the shower unit? Or should I ask Kris about this?

When you have the shower unit it works in a different way.
I only can fill and empty my tank from one out/intake that is sitting on transom.

Petrov,

Do you have a close-up picture of the seatbelt from that bolster? If not, could you send me the picture you posted in high resolution to my mail address? I could use such seatbelts on mine but Iím wondering where to get those. Do you know?

thx
Paul

Hi Paul;

There is no seatbelt on the Bolster we order, i think the person have fitted the belts (if it`s belts) themselves on the pic i have posted, i wouldnt recommend seatbelts.
More info of the seats Bolster seats

Thank you for the quick reply.

The seatbelt could be usefully I think for the passenger especially. We did some testing at BMC this weekend to find out the best distance between the console and the bolsters. Once we had the right position we noticed that it wouldnít be easy for the co-pilot to grab an inox frame on the console. The distance for him is too big. The pilot has the advantage to hold the steering wheel + on the low discovery console the distance form the seat to the console is not the same for the co-pilot than for the pilot.

Hi Paul;

Yes there is a differnet between navigator and driver on the low disc, but i havent had any probs with it when i been using the jockeyseats or racing seats.

PS: Make shure that the navigator is 1,9m long and than you dont have the problem
